To enhance your detox and cleansing process our highly qualified and experienced therapists offer a variety of treatments.We will also show you how to use the magnet bed, the Zapper and the Clysmatic, a gentle colonic cleansing system you administer yourself in the privacy of your bathroom,

Exercise, Meditation and Relaxation: Each morning at 8am there is Meditation and Yoga. Every evening there is meditation. Attendance to both of these is highly recommended as these are designed to assist in your detoxification process.

During the detoxification process, blockages and tensions held in the physical, mental and emotional levels of the body are released, these practices help you to let go of them, to relax properly and to sleep more comfortably. During the day you can relax, swim, have a therapy session, explore and walk around the area and help out in the organic gardens. There are a collection of videos and DVD's of related subjects and movies to watch. On alternate days the Sauna is on in the early evening. The Hot tub is on every day. One day each week we have an outing, weather dependent, either to one of the beautiful local Algarve beaches or to Lagos
