Yoga is a psycho-physical discipline with roots going back about 5,000 years. Most Yoga practices focus on the physical postures called "asanas," breathing exercises called "pranayama," and the meditation benefits of Yoga. The benefits of yoga include improved physical fitness, mental clarity, greater self-understanding, stress control and general well-being.

Tai Chi
Tai Chi can perhaps best be thought of as a moving form of yoga and meditation combined. There are a number of so- called forms which consist of a sequence of movements. Many of these movements are originally derived from the martial arts (and perhaps even more ancestrally than that, from the natural movements of animals and birds), although the way they are performed in Tai Chi is slowly, softly and gracefully with smooth and even transitions between them.

Fasting programmes
Fasting is one of the most natural, powerful therapies known to humankind. Periods of abstinence from solid food, allow the body to cleanse and purify, to remove variuos toxins, excess weight and parasites. This gives the cells, tissues and organs of your body a chance to slow down, rest, and heal.


Reflexology sign

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension,improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body.

Facial treatments and body wraps
There are a number of therapeutic skin care treatments. These treatments, in combination with our skin care products, can help rejuvenate your skin and bring back your youthful look.
Body Wraps
There are many types of body wraps. Generally, a body wrap is a treatment that is extremely effective in helping the body rid itself of toxins and excess fluid. Herbal wraps help sore, aching muscles and relax muscular tension which may be causing pain.

Colonic and ozone therapies
A self colonic or colonic irrigation with ozone is the most effective way to detoxify the body and clean the colon of toxins or waste. It lays the foundation for improved health and more active life. Cleaning the colon starts a new life cycle for a more enjoyable and exciting life.

Hypnosis is like guided daydreaming: a form of relaxed concentration. What is relaxed is first, the body and second, the conscious part of the mind. Therein lies its value as a tool of therapy.

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles, on the body's surface, in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. It can also be used in conjunction with heat produced by burning specific herbs.

Shiatsu is a traditional hands-on Japanese healing therapy. It can help in a wide range of conditions - from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience and regular Shiatsu sessions help to prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life
