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.

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.
