The detox program is based on juice cleansing, the nutritionist will match the program personally for your body type and needs.
The detox retreat at Samma Karuna is not as hard on the body as other more rigid detox programs in Thailand, yet it is very beneficial. The digestive system is not put through a sudden change, as with water fasting. With this juice and smoothies detox program, your body is cleansed gently and is recharged with the most potent nutrients available. This recharges not just the body but the soul too.
Once your body is cleansed of toxins, you will feel lighter and have more energy to achieve your goals. You will certainly have the energy to attend as many classes in the awakening and healing program as you would like.
The juice and smoothies detox retreat is developed to deeply rid the body of toxins and work on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and revitalized. Both detox programs aim for improving longevity and well-being, not just for the duration of a short-time diet regime or a weight loss program. These programs will introduce you to the world of superfoods, through a vegan approach. Unlocking the healing properties of plants and herbs helps to trigger the cleansing process in the body.
After the first day of cleansing, each participant has a one-on-one meeting with the detox mentor to create a customized program for their specific health needs. The detox mentor takes medical conditions, dietary habits, and general lifestyle into consideration, before creating a program for the participant. The participant’s response and progress during the detox program are rigidly supervised and changes are made based upon each individual's specific detox journey.
In addition, every day, the detox mentor and every participant will have meetings to learn about the changes that are happening to the mind and body through the detox retreat. Continuous nutritional advice will be given and the detox mentor will share methods on how to cleanse your body and learn techniques to optimize and accelerate the betterment of your health in the future.
Participants will have plenty of time available in between sessions to spend relaxing and enjoying Koh Phangan. A walk along the notoriously beautiful beaches of Koh Phangan, a swim in the turquoise ocean (the retreat center is beachfront), sunbathing under a coconut tree, or simply reading a book in a hammock are favorite past times of past detox clients.
This retreat includes two traditional herbal pressure massage sessions, eight massages or Reiki therapy, and two Chi Nei Tsang or abdominal massage sessions.
