The Elemental Vision
Elemental Embrace is a retreat built on the foundation of wellness. We aim to
create an environment which will enable, bestow, empower, and advocate a healthy
lifestyle which will enhance your physical, emotional and spiritual well being.
Entrust with us some time out of your busy lives so we can help you devote it
to yourself. We offer you relaxing, detoxifying and rejuvenating treatments to
heal. We offer to share timeless yoga practices each morning and to help you
begin and develop your meditative practice.
We offer to teach you not about the human body, but your human body, how to care
for it, understand it, energize it, feel and feed it. We offer all this in a
comfortable, private and homely environment designed to heal, with staff dedicated
to serve, and like minded people willing to share in the experience of developing
their essential selves.
Our vision of Elemental Embrace is based upon an unequivocal belief that this
experience can better your life, and our experience through Elemental Embrace,
has manifested the belief that it will. We understand that this time you are
able to devote to yourself is limited, and ranges from a single hour to a few
weeks on end. We cater to individuals seeking anything between a single Spa relaxation
massage, Ayurvedic mental relaxation treatment, colonic hydrotherapy treatment,
through a weekend right up to a 21 day weight loss, detoxification or rejuvenation
Our focus is clearly upon enabling effective and lasting wellness which in most
cases can only be achieved through a few nights out of your busy lifestyles, devoted
to this environment of healing. I have created in conjunction with our resident
Ayurvedic doctors and feedback from our clients to date, treatment packages templates
on which you can base your stay in accordance with your program and based upon
your specific goal and time at hand.
Every one of these packages includes a combination of Ayurvedic and spa treatments which
follow each other with synergistic value. They give first timers to Ayurveda
a glimpse of the health restorative properties of our Ayurvedic treatments in
conjunction to the spa treatments we have grown to enjoy.
Ayurveda for those of you new to the concept, is our chosen wellness
which is a holistic science of life originating from India having prevailed through
several thousands of years. At Elemental Embrace we have brought in Ayurvedic
doctors (Vaidyas) from India who customize your herbally medicated treatment oils
and treatments, consult, lecture and live on site to oversee your wellness program.
The timeless medical and wholesome Ayurvedic science is what differentiates Elemental
Embrace from a pampering and beauty spa, and upgrades your time otherwise devoted
to relaxation and wellness. (More about Ayurveda).
For those of you interested in further exploring the abundance of Ayurveda, many
of our packages begin with an Ayurvedic consultation with our resident
Vaidya. Through this hour long one on one discussion of your health, you receive
great insight into your body's strengths, weaknesses and characteristics and the
information to relate this to the world we live in through a dosha specific constitutional
This also enables the Vaidyas to suggest changes to your treatment, exercise,
meditation, yoga and diet schedule during your stay with us, and life away. If
you carry any interest in Ayurveda and taking control of your well being. Booking
yourself in for a consultation is a great way to start, and in my opinion, essential.
The demands of today's fast paced lifestyle mean that although we take our vehicles
in for service regularly and on time, we push our bodies, by nature of incomparable
complexity, to the brink of health consequences before we consider addressing
them with a chemical quick fix disease curative approach. At Elemental Embrace
we understand the difficulties in creating this time for oneself, and through
our combination of Spa services to provide conventional relaxation, along with
Ayurvedic treatments and therapies which offer a health restorative (and disease
curative) approach to wellness, we are able to give our clients the maximum yield
of your time, and an increased understanding of yourself to carry with you.
The retreat's focus is very much on the individual. Despite a residential capacity
of up to 20 guests, we currently take in an average of 8 - 14 guests at any one
time. Spread amongst the treatment rooms, lounges, yoga/meditation studio and
facilities means that you can be sure that you will get time to yourself and the
space for personal reflection whenever you need. We have an equal ratio of trained
and nurturing personnel on staff to our guests, and you can be sure that we will
do what it takes for you to get all you desire from your time with us.
We understand that a generic form of wellness cannot be bottled and sold as it
would have to take into consideration the individual habits both social and work,
physical and mental strengths and weaknesses, dietary and personal preferences,
etc. Ayurveda does this, and we are proud to practice it in its pure and authentic
form, with oils, herbs and teas all imported from pharmacies in India, and dispensed
by qualified and certified Ayurvedic Vaidyas from India, whom live on staff to
monitor your progress throughout your stay.
To date, our guests have felt comfortable enough to put away the vanity case,
keep their treatment oil in their hair and remain in their robes for the best
part of the day, contemplating wellness from the inside out. We do not engage
in extensive advertising but allow for natural evolution though repeat and referral
clientele, so if you're reading this its probably because you have been referred
to us, so you can be sure that you will get the attention and commitment of a
guest in our home.
We like the lifestyle, and we love what we do, and are always pleased when we
can share it with you.
