Health & Wellness Retreat in Australia

Today we find ourselves surrounded by modern conveniences. There are so many, in fact, that it’s easy to overlook just how inconvenient modern living can be. Did you know that human beings were originally designed to stop and completely rest one full 24 hr cycle every week. Studies have shown outstanding results on total wellness of mind, body and soul which have resulted in overall extended life span and quality of life of up to 7 years and more than the average healthy person could expect.

That’s where our Health Retreat comes in. Life has become so busy that many feel they simply don’t have the time for health and wellbeing. Retreats are a convenient way to jumpstart a new wellness plan and gain much-needed guidance on the path to a holistically healthy new you.

Abide® Wellness Retreats Offer Healing on Every Level

The best things always come in three. Your health is no different. Overall well-being is a combination of body, mind and soul. This basic understanding is the foundation for our treatments. We believe that people thrive when every aspect of their wellbeing is cared for. We’re here to help you bring yourself back into balance by catering to your needs on every level.

That’s why we offer guidance and support in a beautifully relaxing environment. You’ll never want to leave, but we make sure you have everything you need to bring the balance of the retreat back to your daily life.

Why Should a Wellness & Health Retreat in Victoria Be Your Next Vacation Destination?

If you’re looking for a wellness retreat in Melbourne, we invite you to look a little further towards the refreshing mountain air. We’re located in the breathtaking forests of Victoria’s Yarra mountain range. You’ll find ample walking paths, streams and natural wonders to explore as we work together to create a holistic approach to a healthier lifestyle. Being in a new environment always helps to jumpstart change, but a natural environment is especially beneficial.

Scientific studies have shown that simply being in nature causes stress levels to decrease and happiness to rise. For thousands of years, we lived in direct harmony with the world around us, and there’s something within us that is still soothed by this experience. However, there’s a little more to it than that.

Sometimes You Have to Go to a Wellness Retreat to Make Real Changes

In today’s busy world, it has become natural for people to feel run down and overwhelmed. Often, this is the first realisation that leads to a desire for lifestyle changes. It’s so easy to fall back into old habits and many soon abandon their new wellness goals. That’s because it’s very difficult to create a new routine when you’re still surrounded by the old one.

A temporary change in environment sets you up for success. It creates an opening for new ideas and allows you to create a new routine free from the constraints of your usual daily life. Once you can focus entirely on the changes in front of you, you’ll be able to commit to them much more deeply.

Give Yourself the Gift of Wellness

People often tend to care for others better than they care for themselves. However, this is a truly unsustainable way to live. You cannot draw water from an empty well, and sometimes you have to put your personal wellbeing first. It’s the only way to continue caring for others without running out of steam along the way.

At Abide® Wellness Retreat in Victoria, you come first. Our staff is carefully chosen for their kindness, compassion and knowledge. We work with you to create a personalised wellness experience based on your needs. Whether you choose to stay with us for one of our 12-day retreats, or even just a single day of caring and relaxation, we know you’ll return home renewed: body, mind and soul.

Contact us today and give yourself the gift of wellness.

Abide Wellness Retreat is retreat based in Narbethong that focuses on natural methods & treatments to help rejuvenate your body. We offer weight loss & detox retreats, but we have a variety of treatments that fit what your body needs. Browse our website further or contact us to learn more.

“A case for whole body transformation and wellness success”

“Ellika came to us at Abide with Parkinson’s and early onset of Dementia seeking support for her debilitating symptoms. The senior clinical team and I planned out and implemented an intense multi-faceted treatment program to support her neurological degeneration. It was designed to elevate and improve her brain function which in turn aided in relieving tremors, minimising shuffling and improving overall mental function.

We also included a range of herbal medicines, dietary and new lifestyle modifications including intense targeted hydrothermal therapies and an intense rehabilitation protocol was employed.

After 7 days Ellika’s shuffling and tremors had stopped. At the end of 11 days, her endurance had greatly improved to the point she could do a 2km return walk without resting, her gross and fine motor skills had increased dramatically and she had started to regain the ability to feed herself. Her memory is improving and her posture is gaining strength and uprightness each new day.

Both Ellika and her husband wish they had come here when she was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s 8 years ago, as the changes that have happened within the past 11 days have been transformative on many levels.

They are both overwhelmed for her remarkable progress so far and now feel more confident about their future.”
