DE-STRESS’ at Chiva-Som, One of the World’s Best Health Resorts in Thailand

outdoorpool.jpgWhatever “Stress” you are facing, let it drift away, while you relax and rejuvenate at Chiva- Som with a “De-stress retreat”. Stress presents itself in many forms. Whether it manifests itself physically, mentally or in response to environmental factors, it can have a negative impact on one’s health. The De-Stress Retreat is your chance to proactively utilise new tools to withstand these challenges. This retreat focuses around the holistic methods of addressing mind, body and spirit. When the mind and spirit are in balance the physical manifestations have the opportunity to recover. By assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the body and utilising techniques such as Sacred Crystal Healing, Reiki, Meditation, Craniosacral Therapy and naturopathic consultation, this adds a new dimension to standard blood tests and physical examinations which most often appear as normal, despite feelings of unease, tiredness and lack of energy. Chiva-Som is about learning to live, enjoy and appreciate each moment. By inspiring our guests to develop a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit, they can create a personal path to optimal health and wellness. Visit Chiva-Som to discover your own path to a stress-free lifestyle.
