Healing Through Water

A private retreat offered Memorial Day through Labor Day

At Shou Sugi Ban House, water is our inspiration, teacher and healer. Reflecting our close proximity to the ocean, water influences our philosophy and wellness offerings, as the existence of life, in all forms, is supported by the presence of water. 

Water is both preventative and curative. It’s an element with medicinal and therapeutic qualities that can support us through drinking, soaking or fully immersing. Throughout time, water has been the source of purification as well as an agent for curing ailments, improving joint flexibility and decreasing inflammation throughout the body. 

Through the elemental power of water, embrace change and find more space to soften and flow. Daily breakfast and a morning movement class as well as private hydrotherapy, aquatic fitness, a beach meditation and an ocean plunge are included in this retreat program for integrated healing of the mind, body and spirit.

Beneficial for any level of health, and especially recommended for soothing muscle and joint pain, physical or mental stress and any sleep-related issues.
