The focus for the weekend will be to nurture, replenish and gain greater focus of our heart's calling and how to bring that into our daily life.  This is time to 'get-away' and 'get clear' about honoring our own inner wisdom, body and mind.

Shiatsu Massage

Carly Crombie

Enjoy a wonderful Shiatsu massage. 


Please set-up appointment prior to retreat

Contact Carly call or text

@ 507-381-1965

Shiatsu massage therapy relies on the use the fingers, thumbs and palm to apply pressure to various areas of the body’s surface to help heal common ailments and conditions, and correct imbalances in the body. Pressure applied to points on the body promotes energy flow and corrects disharmonies throughout the patient's body. In addition to being a deeply relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps relieve stress, treat pain and illness, and contributes to a patient's overall health and wellbeing.

Reiki Treatment

Beth Boland

Enjoy a session.

Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead. The name comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow).

$85/50 minute session
