The sound of silence with a backdrop of picturesque Swiss mountains provides a restorative healing retreat.

This three-day retreat run by Antonis Sarris, an esteemed holistic therapist who was awarded “Best Massuer in the World” by SpaFinder, explores the Tibetan tradition which believes in the wholeness and independence of body, mind and nature. The retreat will include primary diagnostics to detect imbalances, their causes and subsequent therapy, all aimed at the rehabilitation of balance between body and mind. It will also include modification of dietary and behavioural regimes, herbal medicine and healing treatments.
