This retreat has equipped me with the knowledge and tools I need to begin taking more control over my health and wellness. I found value in every aspect of the program, treatment, and services. The instructors and healers were all wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, and I am grateful to have participated.
I received great advice on how to improve my stress level and replace prescriptions with natural medicine.
I arrived feeling stressed and overwhelmed. After the weekend of treatments and all the advice from Dr. Carrie, I left relaxed, breathing better, and feeling like I could wield some control over my own stress.
