Do you want to improve your Mental health and well-being?


Our philosophy

 Our goal is to make health improvements affordable by:

 “Keeping it simple and focusing on evidence based strategies”

  • Be free from any form of addiction
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Maintain an optimal weight
  • Be physically active
  • Optimizing one’s own mental health

There are a large number of wonderful "Health and Well-being Retreats" that offer outstanding food and a large range of "pampering services". Unfortunately not everyone can afford to stay at these retreats which will often cost over $4000 a week.

We have purposefully chosen to stick with simple but proven strategies and to offer you affordable alternatives. Our prices vary according to the location but they all offer excellent value, whether you wish to join us for a Retreat in a luxurious bungalow or in rustic cabin in a national park.
