Several holistic practitioners have volunteered their time to offer you short sessions of reflexology, chair massage and reiki. This is a chance for you to learn about these non-invasive methods of wellness and to experience a short session yourself to see if it's right for you. There will also be a talk and demonstration of acupuncture.

 

A delicious lunch will be provided as well as private time so you can just connect with each other, enjoy the beautiful gardens at the CV Rich Mansion or take some time for personal reflection.
