Abdominal organ therapy

Abdominal Organ Therapy is a manual therapy consisting of gentle, specifically placed manual forces that encourage normal mobility, tone and tissue motion of the internal organs, their connective tissue and other areas of the body. Motion is a sign of life itself. Everything in the universe is in motion. Everything moves in space and time and humans are no exception to this rule. Our bodies need movement to be healthy. This same principle applies to every structure in our bodies including the internal organs. Tissues lose their normal motion when they become inflamed. It can be conceptualised as a localised drying out of the affected tissues. Many factors can cause tissue inflammation including: infections, direct trauma, repetitious movement, diet, environmental toxins and emotional stress. The natural healing process involves local disruption of these relatively inelastic, granular tissues and their restoration to normal tissue fibres with the reability for appropriate motion.

Ayurveda (meaning 'knowledge of life') is a 5,000 year old system of natural healing originating in Kerala in India. Recognised as an alternative medicine, it believes that health is balanced between the body, mind, spirit and environment and that we are all governed by a particular 'dosha' - Vata (wind), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (earth) which make up the characteristics of our mind and body.

Bach Flower

Flower essences were used in ancient Egypt as well as India, Asia, Europe, South America, and by the Australian Aborigines. This system was rediscovered and popularised 80 years ago in England by the work of Dr. Edward Bach. Flower essences work quickly and profoundly, addressing psychological, spiritual and physical states to bring about harmony. When emotional balance is restored by the flower essences true healing can occur. Dr. Bach suggested that physical illness is actually a message from our higher self, calling for a change in our mental outlook and way of living. Positive qualities that reside deep inside us are brought forth and emotional blocks are removed by the essences. Their activation allows us to replace fear with courage, insecurity with self-confidence, and hatred with love, thus renewing your passion for life. During a flower remedy consultation your emotional and physical state will be discussed, allowing the practitioner to design a remedy formulated specifically to meet your needs.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the contemporary version of China’s 3,000 year-old medical system originating in Taoist philosophy. This ancient healing tradition is based on the recognition that there is a natural energy that resonates with the rhythms and cycles of life to which we are all connected. It is a comprehensive theoretical system based on the knowledge that vibrant health on all levels is the direct manifestation of a life lived in harmony with the principles of nature. The cycles, rhythms, and principles of nature are thought to be fully expressed within the human body in the form of the Five Elements. Therapies and treatments used include well- established techniques such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, nutrition, Qi Gong and forms of Chinese internal practices (breath, visualisation and movement) for cultivating Qi or vital energy and directing it towards the healing of self and others.

Traditional Thai therapeutic treatment

Traditional Thai Therapeutic Treatment is also known as ‘medical massage’ and is based on the Royal Thai style, ‘Rajasamnak’ which was historically only used to treat the Thai aristocracy and the Royal Family. Furthermore, the theory behind Traditional Thai Therapeutic Treatment is also based on the medical inscriptions and illustrations displayed at Wat Pho temple in Bangkok. This temple is renowned for its prestigious massage school which utilises ancient pressure point techniques. These therapeutic points and energy pathways known as Sen, are based on the principle of energy flow where applying massage techniques at precise anatomical locations produces specific therapeutic effects.

The programme also includes their innovative 3GL plus testing where through pin prick blood sample and urine sample they can measure the three most important biomarkers for metabolic health – which are glucose, glutathione and glycogen plus amino acids and metabolites (which are all biomarkers that measure your state of health). From the results they get they can personalise your exercise programme and also your food rather than a one size fits all approach. So like a totally personalised MOT for your own state of health.

3GL Analysis

A patented protocol by Euphoria Retreat in Greece that with a few drops of blood, measures the 3 most important biomarkers for your metabolic health - glycogen, glucose and glutathione (called 3GL), the main endogenous antioxidant against free radicals. Endogenous antioxidants are released from food and vitamins through digestion and travel through the bloodstream and into the cells - they can prevent the forming of free radicals and cellular damage. The result of the 3GL test (which is 100% accurate) will reveal your individual cellular needs in metabolic regulation and activation, anti-ageing, wellness, cellular protection and longevity. As a result, the diet that you follow will be adapted to your specific, personal needs. Euphoria Retreat’s 3GL therapy is designed to be effective when followed by a diet of smaller, more regular meals throughout the day which boost your metabolism and energy levels.
