As an exhibition in the form of a temporary public clinic, Sanatorium provides short and unconventional treatments to visitors who check in as patients.  To this end, the facility offers 16 different treatments and has provided therapy to nearly 500 people. 

One of the treatments, for example, is called “Goodoo”.  Here, a patient visualizes a person they want to help by benignly inserting a number of objects into an effigy of the one in need.  This positive folk magic allows the actor to give material shape to their emotions toward others.
