Retreats

Our holistic wellness retreats are designed to work with mind, body and soul in beautiful surroundings to restore energy and life balance.  They provide an opportunity to slow down from life’s normal busy pace and immerse in a weekend of mindful relaxation and learning. The retreats will give you a true holistic wellness weekend and with a minimum number of 5 guests/maximum number of 10, it allows for a really special experience to enjoy with yourself, a friend or your significant other.

If you’re thinking of a hens’ weekend or just wanting to get away with a group of friends and have everything taken care of, then please contact us as we can make a retreat to cater to your needs and requirements.

What people are saying about us:

Kath is extremely genuine and caring person. Kath is clearly knowledgeable and passionate about massage and all things health and well-being. All of these attributes are clearly evident during the treatments I have had with Kath. Kath quickly identifies any problem areas and creates a comfortable space.   The treatments are tailored to what you need and what she identifies. After my treatments with Kath I have always left with my body feeling a lot more free and comfortable.”

I would just like to say thank you so much to Bex Whitehouse, for her help and guidance to achieve my goals. She has helped me to regain my confidence and feel good from within myself. Bex was willing to go the extra mile to help me. Her fair but firm words always helped me achieve my goals, I even stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something new by doing her 1:1 yoga sessions, which has been an amazing experience as well. Bex is someone that listens and respects you no matter how big the situation. I’ve shared a few tears with her throughout my coaching with her and she has always been supportive. Anything you require this chicky is right there beside you, every step of the way. I totally recommend Bex to anyone and everyone. She’s one amazing person and I’m so grateful for all her help on my journey.
