I arrived feeling tired, I left feeling inspired, I was also 7lb lighter!
During the retreat I relaxed and detoxed in a supportive, friendly environment. Helen is a passionate advocate of a healthy diet, of which juicing is a key part, so she and Becky served us 4 tasty juices each day. Surprisingly, for me anyway, whilst I missed some of my favourite foods, I was not hungry all the time which I had worried I would be.
There were 6 other guests, and we were soon chatting and supporting each other. Whilst we could join in a group, we also had time and space to be on our own, and the accommodation was comfortable with lovely views across the valley.
To treat myself I had booked a few treatments, these all helped me detox and relax, including a facial, reflexology, colonic irrigation and lynphatic drainage. The latter two were new to me, I found them very valuable and would recommend them. The yoga / relaxation / fitness sessions were great for helping us detox and relax, as well as creating some funnier moments. The use of the Spa was very welcome too.
I feel so much more energetic than I did at the beginning of the retreat, and the weight loss was very welcome too. I am going to continue eating more fruit and vegetables, and I know that with juicing as part of my diet I have found a way to help me achieve a healthier future.
I thank Helen and her team for all their support, and would recommend this juicing retreat to anyone who wants a relaxing break as well as a opportunity to enhance their health.
