Explore the Mind–Body Connection Through Massage Therapy

Book yourself a healing massage with one of our qualified and passionate massage therapists. What better way to compliment your retreat and truly relax?

While we retreat away for our busy lives it is important to acknowledge the physical impact that the stress of life has on our body. Massage therapy can redress the effects of stress alleviating aches and pains. At Happy Buddha Retreats we offer a variety of massage styles including the following:

Remedial Massage – Remedial Massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.

Swedish Massage – Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.

Kahuna Massage – KaHuna is a uniquely transformative massage experience. Integrating breath, movement and flow into a dynamic, nurturing and powerful form of bodywork which helps to shift stagnant energy, uplift the spirit and calm the mind.

Depending on your retreat date and the therapy availability one or all styles may be available.

The next step…

Massage times are allocated during free time or meals (not to worry – your food will be ready, waiting as you finish). Simply book in with the friendly crew on your arrival at the retreat. Don’t wait too long to book as space is limited! Unfortunately, we’re unable to take bookings prior to your retreat.

At the time of your massage, make your way upstairs towards the massage room where you’ll find a comfortable sofa at the top of the stairs. Take a moment to close your eyes and notice the calming silence that Happy Buddha has to offer while you wait to be welcomed into the cosy massage room by your smiling therapist. With the soothing smell of essential oils in the air, enjoy the next hour of healing and relaxation.
