We all face a point at least once in our lives where we could benefit from some rest and rejuvenation. Better than a health resort, Cedarvale Health & Lifestyle Retreat in NSW not only offers an environment for patrons to recharge, but also improve their quality of life and manage their health needs. Cedarvale’s programs offer the ideal opportunity and environment to improve your health and quality of life. Our guests are continually amazed at the results they achieve - all in a relatively short time.
Generally there are two types of detox programs. You may need one or even both programs:
This is one of the major concerns in facing a detox program. While it is true that the first day or two can be a bit rough, our guests are often pleasantly surprised how well they manage to cope. With the help of the various therapies and other recommendations the withdrawals are minimised in their duration and intensity.
Our hydrotherapy treatments, which are a powerful yet gentle way of detoxing. The Russian stem-bath treatment is a favourite. Not only is it good for detoxing, but it also leaves you feeling physically and mentally relaxed.
Cedarvale’s goal is to provide you with an environment where you not only feel relaxed and rejuvenated but also feel empowered to take charge of your health. For this reason we incorporate CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) as part of our program. The feedback we have received about this program from our guests is that it presents a credible way to prevent, treat and reverse lifestyle related diseases including obesity, high blood pressure, stress, reduce/stop alcohol, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease. This comprehensive lifestyle program is evidence based with over 20 scientific papers having been published to date reporting its positive results. As part of your CHIP experience you will be provided with a “lifestyle medicine tool kit”. Curious? We find it exciting to observe the life-changing impact CHIP has upon guests who thought their best days were behind them!

You may wish to get a head start and browse through our treatments lists and see which ones appeal to your needs. Our treatments can generally be divided into three main categories:
Russian steam bath with aqua massage (60 min): This highly effective treatment has a broad range of therapeutic uses. While accelerating your body’s cleansing and detoxification processes, it also boosts immune function, metabolism and circulatory function. A mini-sauna is given with the advantage of having the head free of steam vapours. Fluids are given throughout the treatment, while the face and head are kept cool once perspiration begins. Depending on the desired physiological effect, your therapist may include two or more cycles of contrast showers during the treatment. The treatment concludes with an invigorating combination of a cool shower with contrast (hot/cool) aqua massage.
Hot pack super treatment (60 min): This treatment is excellent for localised conditions where there is congestion, pain, inflammation, cramping or spasm. It is also highly beneficial for certain specific organ conditions (e.g. liver or kidney). A series of moist, hot packs are applied for several minutes to the affected area with intervals of brief, vigorous applications of cold. This treatment has been proven effective for a range of conditions such as joint/nerve pain, muscle tension and cramping, chest conditions, head congestion and sluggish liver function.
