Eastern medicine Health Retreats
Escapada Health Retreat brings together the unique and powerful combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Traditional Indian medicine (TIM) also known as Ayurveda. These health sciences remain the most ancient yet living practices, retaining their essence while adapting to modern lifestyles. They both describe imperishable natural laws and are based on supraregional, timeless, and long-lasting values.
With many years of experience and practice, the Escapada team have come together to merge the best of these on their retreats - movement therapy, health enhancing nutrition and holistic treatments.
By combining the wisdom of these two eastern philosophies, our aim is to explore basic ancient principles and knowledge to simplify and improve life: the way we eat, the way we think, and the way we live.
There is no right or wrong or good or bad, but there is the noble middle way, a central idea in both medical systems, which avoids long lasting extremes in our nutritional behaviour, our life guidance and mental states. Physically, this middle refers to the stomach and the spleen, which from a Chinese perspective are responsible for the formation of energy (Qi) from food and our general health. In Ayurveda one speaks of Agni, the digestive fire in the gastrointestinal tract. A strong middle allows you to feel healthy, strong, grounded.
In intimate and luxurious settings, Escapada offers an empowering space to explore that central idea of strengthening the middle in order to live a simple yet truly fulfilling life.
