This 7 day retreat is a great choice for someone who wants to experience
a transformational and healthful vacation.
The following sample itinerary is for a one week retreat and includes 2 days of
travel and 5 days of private sessions. As you read the itinerary, please keep in
mind that it can be customized to fit into your needs. At your first consultation,
you will be able to rearrange your sessions.
Remember, our retreats are personalized and private – totally focused on you!
Day 1 (Sunday)
Arrive: Check into your accommodations, unwind, then meet with the retreat coordinator if you have any questions. Otherwise relax and rest to prepare to
begin your transformational journey the next morning.
Day 2 (Monday)
Welcome Consultation: This is to review all of your sessions through the
week and reassure that all of your needs are met. This is when you can alter
the program, if needed, and perhaps to add other sessions based on your goals.
Colon Therapy, Massage or Myofascial Release Work: You have your
choice of receiving a colonic, massage or a myofascial release therapy – it is
entirely up to you. We offer various massages to choose from as you feel
appropriate for your needs or if you like deeper work, we also recommend
Myofascial Release Therapy. Myofascial is the combination of muscular and
fascial tissue. Fascia is also known as connective tissue, which binds the
entire body together, supporting organs, bones and muscles, creating the right amount of tension in the body so that we are aligned in a erect posture. When
the connective tissue tightens down it pulls the bones, blood vessels and
nerves into a restrictive and cramped environment. By receiving this treatment,
a feeling of openness and relaxation occurs which assists the body to return
to a state where it can heal itself. The result is a reduction of pain, increase in
range of motion and the feeling of well being.
Yoga or other exercise: If you are staying in our retreat lodge, there will be
choices of different exercises to do in your own lodging. We will make
suggestions based on your body type to address the issues you wish to work
on. There will also be an assistant to help you with your exercises.
Day 3 (Tuesday)
Chiropractic Adjustment: We have two chiropractors on site. Chiropractic adjustment will help your nerve system to process other therapies that are
Breath Work: In this two plus hour session, you will be guided to breath in a
gentle connected rhythm while listening to music. You will enter into deeper
levels of consciousness where you will be able to access the information that
you need most for your spiritual upliftment and education. Upon waking to full consciousness, you will talk with your facilitator who will help you to integrate
what you have learned. After your first experience of Holotropic Breath Work,
you might be interested in receiving extra sessions to maximize your special
BioMat session followed by Ionic Foot Bath: Here you will enjoy about 30
minutes on a BioMat. One of the many benefits of laying on a BioMat includes receiving the BioMat’s far infrared waves. These raise body temperature,
warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels, which increases blood circulation. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing
built-up toxins and waste. It also carries off metabolic waste products and
delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles.
Day 4 (Wednesday)
Yoga in the morning: Not everyone is on the same page when it comes to
exercise. We will be reasonable to your bodily needs to facilitate Chi-Gong
exercise or suggest a gentle stretch depending on your body’s ability. As
always, you will have your choice in your exercise program. Sometimes you
just might need additional rest. Or a nice walk in the morning to the river or a
Ayurvedic Therapies: You will receive two hours of Ayurvedic treatments to
prepare your body to Clear and Balance. Treatments consist of: Abhyanga-
Warm Herbal Oil (prepared based on your constitution) massage to separate
excess toxins (doshas) from your tissues and move them towards your GI
tract to be eliminated. Shirodhara – Pouring of warm oil in a slow steady stream
on your forehead while laying on the table. Swedana- The steam induces
sweating to liquefy the toxins and increases the movement of toxins through the channels. This is a blissful and very relaxing therapy and is also a sample
therapy for your future Panchakarma retreat, if you happen to like the way you
feel after the treatment.
Day 5 (Thursday)
Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET): This session can be utilized to further
regain your physical health, to manifest what you desire in your career and relationships, to remove phobias and to clear false and limiting beliefs. Your
facilitator will assist you in clearing the limiting unconscious “false beliefs” that
were formulated after emotions got stuck in your body following trauma, disappointments and/or parental conditioning. You will be free to create your life
in a new way, rather than manifesting more of the same old stuff.
For this session, you also have the choice to receive Acupuncture, Color
Therapy or a Chiropractic Adjustment, whichever helps you the most, in
place of the NET. Or our therapist may combine other options that might serve
you best in a different way.
Massage or BioMat Session followed by an Ionic Foot Bath: Here you will
enjoy about 30 minutes on a BioMat. One of the many benefits of laying on a
BioMat includes receiving the BioMat’s far infrared waves. These raise body temperature, warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels, which
increases blood circulation. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat
glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. It also carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles.
Day 6 (Friday)
Massage or Colonic or Myofascial Release Therapy: You have your choice
of receiving a colonic, massage or a myofascial release therapy – it is entirely
up to you. (If you want to receive more than one therapy there will be an extra
fee.) We offer various massages as you feel are appropriate on your sixth day.
If you like deeper work, we also recommend Myofascial Release Therapy. Also,
some clients prefer acupuncture or other Ayurvedic Therapies.
