Sometimes despite our better efforts to look after ourselves the batteries run low. The back aches, the knees creak, we suffer headaches, stomach problems, become demotivated, crabby or may suffer insomnia; all signs of the body, spirit, soul and mind asking for help. Touch is the most vital of ways to heal ourselves, and the touch of a professional can sometimes be exactly what we need to get us back on track. Your retreat includes a half hour health consultation, followed by 1 hour of body harmonising massage or Acupuncture. You can choose the most appropriate additional treatments from those listed here in your consultation with Vonetta or Peter on arrival. Additional therapies are available for 80€ per 90 minute session.

Thai Massage a second clothed massage technique performed on the floor is a meditative dance between therapist and the person receiving the treatment. In a Thai Massage the nadis, energetic or Qi lines are systematically pressed and stimulated by thumbs and hands to remove energetic blockages from the body. Thai massage is a wonderful compliment to yoga practice as it invites deeper opening in the joints, particularly the hip sockets and the shoulders encouraging flexibility and mobility, a deep sense of well being and contentment. After a Thai massage the body drifts as light as a feather on a breeze, the spirit is refueled and the mind contemplative and serene.
If you prefer an oil treatment then Indonesian massage is also available. Indonesian massage is characterized by deep work along the lines of muscle tissues to lengthen shortened and tightened muscle fibers. Indonesian massage is soulful, you simply lie on the table and allow yourself to be perfumed, pampered and nourished. Yummy!
