Enjoy Perfect Health

Ayurveda, the ancient knowledge, still so relevant for modern times, emphasizes periodic cleansing, generally at every change of season, as a way to restore balance to mind and body. Although the body has an effective system for filtration of impurities, toxins can sometimes build up too rapidly for the body to cope with. Also, after the age of forty, the body's ability to purify itself becomes weaker.  

How you detoxify is very important. Harsh cleansing can aggravate the body and cause problems. Ayurvedic detoxification is gentle and balanced. Luxurious treatments are administered in a logical sequence.They are designed to flush out toxins from the body and nourish and balance the system, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and renewed.

These treatments have no side effects. Retreat is designed for generally healthy individuals as a preventative therapy or as a cure for disease.

How does it work?
The body is oleated both internally and externally with warm oils or ghee, the oil penetrates into all tissues of the body and loosens the accumulated toxins from a cellular level. The loosened toxins pass into the gastro intestinal tract and are eliminated from the body either upwards or downwards. Heating the body speeds up this process.



The treatments will take half days to give you enough time for rest. This will increase the benefit. You will receive 2 and half hours of treatments per day. Treatment time may include any of the following:

v      Ayurvedic Massage is a truly nurturing experience.
