Sanum Per Aqua - healing through water.
To me, nothing is more powerful than water.
Taken as an internal healer, it hydrates us, keeping us alive.
Relaxing bathing experience feels like this all encompassing completeness covering every inch of our bodies.
Feels just perfect.
Our skin, the largest organ we carry,
loves to absorb precious nutrients in direct communion with this element.
KALTBAD - HEALING THROUGH COLD WATER APPLICATION
Alpine waters content is super high in minerals as it journeys from the highest peaks to the lowest valleys, feeding itself with all the elements encountered along the way.
Passing through sturdy rocks, moist earth, exposed to the rays of the Sun and powered by the winds ... you can imagine the unmatched force of this journey
and mineral rich arrival to the final destination.
BALNEOTHERAPY - HEALING THROUGH HOT WATER APPLICATION
Now imagine different journey from within the crust of the Earth. Bubbling up to the surface, ancient in her existence. Already possessing all of the healing attributes, she is called geothermal spring, heated up above human temperatures ( above 36,5 Celsius ).
This is more potent variation of mineral content as hot water can dissolve more mineral solids, making her an ideal element for mineral restoration in our human bodies.
Thermal baths are considered an integral part of traditional medicine in many cultures and countries and nowadays they are a relevant part of the public health systems of many countries within and outside Europe.
Growing up in small Spa town of Eastern Slovakia, Bardejovske Kupele, it was natural to drink mineral rich waters directly from the springs. And somehow our bodies intuitively knew what spring to drink from. Even though, I can't remember my body preferring intense smell of sulphur rich spring!
In later years, when I was working in luxury Spas in various corners of the world, the water element was ever present - albeit in different scenario like it is here in Switzerland.
In Balinese culture for example, the water is a sacred element, steeped into ancient traditions of energetic cleansing rituals and ceremonies.
In Thai culture, water festival - Songkran - symbolises rebirths and the beginning of a New Year.
While Maldivien myths talks about their first people birthed from its very waters.
So you see, water holds many healing promises to
RELAX, RECHARGE AND RESTORE.

BREATH, MEDITATION & MINDFULNESS
The demands of the world we live in greatly contributes to the way we choose to live our everyday lives. Rushing through the tasks, meetings, deadlines, from one moment to the next ... all for the sake of being '' productive '' - Carpe Diem. But are we really ceasing the day by not even being mindfully in it?
The sense of rushing to get things just done, creates flight and fight response in our nervous system. What's worse, this stressful state also invites cortisol release contributing to weight gain, chronic inflammation and hormonal imbalance.
During our retreat you will learn effective techniques to help you relax, manage anxiety and build more resilient nervous system.
DID YOU KNOW?
A eustress or positive response to a stressor motivates you to deal with a challenge or accomplish a task. It helps you face what you have to face or fix what you have to fix. In the end, eustress can lead you to feelings of satisfaction and accomplishment, well-being and wholeness.
With a negative stress or distress perception of a stressor, your response may be one of increased anxiety and fear and despair. This can result in chronic stress, anxiety, depression and physical illnesses.
WHICH ONE ARE YOU EXPERIENCING LATELY?
Whether due to a poor nutrition, stress or hormonal imbalances our skin, hair and nails suffer big time.
Skin shows first sign of ageing or disease. Have you noticed your skin hue when you are not feeling well for example?
It lacks radiance and glow.
Mineral rich Alpine thermal baths, hydrating face & hair masks, luxurious aromatherapy body oil blends ... aaah, bringing back that healthy skin glow and inner radiance!
I was never a fan of anti-aging products or approach. Instead, I believe in using toxin free, natural products that helps us age with grace as the best long term solution.
Sleep without alarm clock.
Sink into plush bath robe and slippers.
Bathe, beautify and entice your senses.
Savour each bite of nutritious meal lovingly prepared for you.
Enjoy connection with other women like you.
LOCAL & SEASONAL FOOD THAT HEALS
Healing always starts with the food we eat.
There is just no way around this my lovelies. The fact is, may times we might be doing all the right things, but in wrong food combinations or just simply not eating enough ( I know, right? ) so it might feel frustrating not seeing the result we want.
My retreat accomplice, Klara Debeljak, a Certified Nutritionist will design nutrition packed food program for our retreat, wow!
The whole foods selection and expert combination will ensure restoration of your hormonal balance, giving you more energy and overall sense of wellbeing.
