Pause and Renew Retreat Includes:

A 60-Minute Integrative Consultation: This 60-minute medical and lifestyle consultation will provide an integrative approach to renewing your health. Combining concepts from allopathic (conventional), homeopathic, and ayurvedic medicine, our Medical Director Carrie Demers, MD, will work with you to understand your health needs, make recommendations for a balanced lifestyle, and suggest natural medicines and supplements that support healing.

Daily 60-Minute Bodywork Treatment: Our highly skilled massage therapy staff will release muscular tension and restore the flow of healing energy in your body through individual bodywork treatments. Multiple treatments are sure to unwind stress and bring peace to body and mind.

A 60-Minute Biofeedback Session: Biofeedback increases awareness of non-voluntary physical mechanics like breathing, heart rate variability, and muscular tension. It also shows you how stress and deep breathing affect the body, and will teach you valuable stress management skills.

A 60-Minute Yoga Therapy Session: Our senior yoga teachers will use the tools of yoga (postures, breathing, relaxation and meditation) to help you find more ease and freedom in your body and mind. These private yoga sessions are tailored to each individual, focusing on your specific needs. You will discover simple techniques that will make a profound impact on your healing journey.

The program begins with orientation on Friday evening and concludes at lunch on Sunday.
