A place for you and your dog to transform, align and renew
Our Complete Wellness retreat has been created to provide you with maximum rest, time for healing and techniques to take home with you so you can continue your healing journey with your dog in perpetuity. It will take you to a new level of interacting with your dog, how you view your relationship with him/her and how connected you feel. Indeed, you will become more aware of life itself and how loved you are..
For many of us, life is tough. Even the most positive people have their bad days. We don’t have the time, make the time or have forgotten just how important rest is for health, and by rest, we mean DEEP rest. This isn’t sitting in front of the television with your feet up kind of rest, but rest that changes your outlook on life, keeps your cells healthy and takes you back to the ancestral being that you are.
Science is now supporting what many of us instinctively know – the importance for the body to receive regular states of deep relaxation to maintain health and longevity. Relaxation is not only important for humans, but for all animals and that includes our dogs too. A dog may have his/her own imbalances to overcome, but many of our dogs also absorb, take on and/or are affected by our own imbalances. This can affect the health of a dog physically, emotionally, energetically and physiologically.
From the moment you arrive you will be guided in to switching off from the physical world and entering a world that allows for healing, peace, tranquillity and transformation with your dog – let’s not also forget all the fun and laughter you will have, an important part of healing and balancing your energy systems. From shamanic drumming, meditation, canine diet testing, energy medicine for your dog and you as well and clean eating our complete wellness retreat will just be the beginnings of you and your dog’s complete wellness journey.

Vibrational Alignment between plant and animal.
Anima is the Greek word for animal, meaning “living soul” and Chi, or prana, is the word used to describe vital life energy or life force that all living beings hold and emit. Thus, Anima-Chi describes the vital life energy that a living soul holds. Plants, or plant therapy (phytotherapy) have the ability to support this!
When an animal is losing health, no matter how intense or subtle this may be, in essence the animal is losing its own energy, or frequency. Through scientific studies on biophoton research, entrainment and other subjects we now know that, at a molecular level, all living beings emit a frequency and resonance. This is specific to the individual, but the resonate of that individual can either become too lowered or too inflamed when the animal is losing health.
Losing health firstly occurs at an energy level, where the animals energy system becomes broken, torn, disturbed or distressed. An animal’s energy state can fluctuate daily and it is important that our dogs are given regular therapies to re-align their energy systems so that deeper imbalances do not take hold. Altered energy states can occur from emotional, physical, physiological, nutritional and environmental disturbances.
It might even be that you want to learn a healing therapy as a daily check-in with your dog’s body and what s/he may need.
Energy systems can be in constant fluctuation and may be able to re-align on their own, so long as the body is able to practice parasympathetic action most of the time. However, modern day living places many stressors on a dog’s (and human’s) body and can keep the body in a prolonged state or constant state of sympathetic action – this can wreak havoc on the body – physically, emotionally, spiritually.
Plants have been used by wild animals and indigenous tribes since ancient times not only for food and nutrition but to also provide healing, medicine and vibrational re-alignment to the body. Through low level frequency, the energy of the plant can silently “communicate” to the energy of the animal and provide the body with an opportunity to return energy states to levels that promote wellness. The dog’s biochemistry can be changed via the biochemistry of the plant and its secondary metabolites, which have similar or the same active constituents that can promote positive changes within a dog’s energy system.
This therapy is both scientific and spiritual. It is both science and an art. It is both mesmerising and unbelievable. It is a powerful example of how interconnected all of life is and how plants and animals do, indeed, communicate to each other to bring about health, healing and wellness.
Both one to one sessions and group workshops can be arranged.
