Assisting you to become healthier and happier is what we aim to deliver for your private holistic detox experience. We at Bali Gaia Retreat Center invite you to experience a positive transformational journey of body, mind and soul. We emphasize on discovery, awareness, acceptance and personal growth.

Here are 5 of the benefits that you can look forward to enjoying when you complete your own detox cleanse: 

  1. Get rid of excess waste
  2. Increase energy levels
  3. Strengthen immune system
  4. Increase mental focus
  5. Clearer skin and shinier hair

Our retreat packages include detox juices, massages, yoga, and meditation. In addition, we have a series of additional program activities for a small cost. These activities can be added to your program, making it even more individualized.

We have two levels of cleanses, the Deep Cleanse and the Light Cleanse.

In the Deep Cleanse, you are on a liquid-only cleanse while on the retreat. Your detox is intensified as energy that would normally go towards digesting and breaking down solid food is now used for healing and repairing on a cellular level. On this cleanse, you get all the nutrition you need while your body is detoxing itself at an accelerated level.

In the Light Cleanse, you opt for an all-living foods diet. This includes juices, smoothies, blended soups, salads and other raw food meals specially prepared for you. On this diet, the rate of detoxification is slowed down. This is recommended especially if you are just coming off a standard American diet (fast foods, processed foods, lots of sugar and fat) and do not want to detox so quickly.

It possesses a plethora of health benefits and has proven effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome, colon caner, constipation, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, ulcerative colitis and atherosclerosis among various other health conditions.

Bentonite Clay: composed of aged volcanic ash. Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins.

TREATMENTS

What is colonic hydrotherapy?

Colonic Hydrotherapy is also referred to as Colonic Irrigation or a Colonic. Colonic Hydrotherapy uses gentle, filtered, temperature controlled water for inner cleansing of the colon, essentially ‘cleaning the pipes’. Over the years, with poor digestive function, the digestive system may not effectively eliminate waste resulting in an accumulation of faecal matter including bad bacteria, mould, yeast and parasites. If stored for too long it leads to an unhealthy digestive environment which may result in symptoms such as bloating, gas, headaches or skin conditions.


Who will do the colonic hydrotherapy?

The colonic will be done by the medical nurses trained by professional doctors. The colonic treatment will be gentle and done in a professional way.


What is infrared sauna?

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. These saunas are sometimes called far-infrared saunas — "far" describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.

The appeal of saunas in general is that they cause reactions, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate, similar to those elicited by moderate exercise. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna, which makes it accessible to people who can't tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna.


What is abdominal massage?

Abdominal massage is a practice that helps to tone and strengthen the muscles located in your abdomen. This helps your digestive system tremendously.


How many kilos can I lost during my detox?

It depends how many days your retreat will last. It also depends of your metabolism system as well. If you have thyroid hormone issue it might be less effective. Here is a list of how many kilos you can lost depending of yours metabolism system and your package also. Below is an example from our previous client:

  • 3 days: 2 - 3 kilos
  • 5 days: 2 - 4 kilos
  • 7 days: 4 - 7 kilos
  • 10 days: 4 - 8 kilos


Can I skip my treatments?

You can skip your treatments but there will be no refund or credit for unattended treatments.


Can I change the treatments?

You can change your treatment to adjust your program before you book your retreat. Once you are arrived at our Villa, there will be not possibility to change your treatment. If you skip it, there will be no refund or credit for unattended treatments.


Can I change the time of the treatments?

It would be great if you can follow the schedule that has been made for you. If you have any urgent situation, we can make changes. If so, let us know as soon as possible so we can arrange that. If there is any time changing of your schedule, we will let you know.

Regarding SPA treatment, you can change to a similar treatment if you don’t like it. You can request the therapist you like.


ACCOMMODATION

Can I stay at Villa Gaia without joining a retreat?

Yes you can. You may choose to stay with us as an independent guest on a nightly rate.
