A detox program is a highly effective way to clean your body of toxins, speed up your metabolism and enhance your overall health.
Juicing alkalises the body’s pH level and assists both in the absorption of nutrients and encourages the body’s own ability to detoxify.
Fasting also allows the digestive system to rest, enabling energy resources to be directed to biochemical maintenance and repair. Here at The Hydro, a juice fast comprises a daily allowance of up to 5 combinations of freshly prepared raw vegetable juices and 3 portions of seed mix. These provide essential protein, fat and fibre, assisting in the stabilisation of blood sugar levels.
Detox Massages help to rid your body of toxins and pollutants that build up, especially when you are under stress. Detox massage is a type of gentle manipulation that focuses mainly on the lymphatic system of the body, eliminating excess fluid buildup, expelling harmful bacteria and flushing out waste products that have built up from the metabolic processes.
Regular Exercise encourages circulation in the blood and lymph system, enhances digestion, reduces tension, lubricates joints, and strengthens your body.
Our Detox Treatments
Any of our detox treatment programs that are going to have any meaningful benefit to your health, are going to take a number of days.
Here is a list of the treatments that you can choose from individually during your stay, but are best experienced through the longer, coordinated programs that we recommend.
Alexander Technique promotes the growth of self-awareness and may be defined as an embodied approach to Mindfulness. The therapist uses various simple operations such as sitting and standing as well as gentle movements of your limbs on a therapy table to illustrate habitual patterns of reaction that compromise posture, movement, thinking, emotions and many other vital aspects of functioning. Offered in two soothing sessions to help establish this awareness, it encourages you to notice and apply choices that can lead to lasting, beneficial change.

Manual Lymph Drainage
Ease of movement is only possible when the action of bones, joints and muscles is harmonious. When, under the pressures of life, the relationship between them becomes unbalanced, injuries and stiffness may ensue.
This treatment is based on the Mézières Method, a physiotherapy that emerged in Europe in 1947 that took cognizance of the interrelatedness of the entire organism even when the problem seems to be restricted to a single area. By attending to the entire body, using gentle touch and movements, it seeks to rebalance the different muscle chains and joints, improving posture and alleviating pain.

Liquid Body - Letting go
Liquid Body (The Art of Letting Go) is unique treatment, exclusive to The Hydro and highly recommended for anyone suffering the effects of acute or chronic stress, recovering from illness or injury, or experiencing stiffness and postural shifts associated with old age or sedentary lifestyle. The treatment involves gentle stretches and soothing, rocking movements of limbs and joints, although trigger points may also be addressed if necessary. Passive movement initiated by the therapist helps you become aware of accumulated body tension while you simultaneously discover your choice in letting it go. This new awareness is identical to Mindfulness: creating improved awareness and encouraging a deeper immersion in your Hydro experience. This treatment boosts your immune system and facilitates the detoxification process. It is especially recommended for those seeking to re-balance themselves by identifying and eliminating tension in the body and who may be in need of a sustainable means of managing stress in life. It is also indicated for anyone seeking assistance in quickly achieving an optimal level of relaxation. In subsequent treatments and when letting go has become second nature, additional movement therapy may be provided.
Extended Detox Programmes
While each of these Detoxifying treatments can be experienced separately,
it is when they are combined in a coordinated process over a period of days that they truly bear results.
