Holistic or Swedish Massage:

Pampering and relaxing, this massage uses traditional Swedish techniques to release tension, toxins and blocked energy in muscles and soft tissue. An oil-based massage often using aromatic essential oils with additional calming properties.

Remedial or Deep Tissue Massage:

Using a variety of expert techniques to work with chronic tension, pain and injury in the body. An effective massage that brings more relief and ease after the session. Not a pampered experience during!

Healing Massage:

A combination of healing and swedish holistic massage to meet your body, mind and soul where they need restoration, relaxation and healing. Deeply nourishing and restorative.

Internal Family System (IFS):

Healing from the inside out. Helpful for anyone suffering from any symptoms of dis-ease such as chronic pain, relationship issues, disordered behaviour, sleep disruption, anxiety, depression, shame and more.

This evidence-based practice engages our Self-energy and directs it inwards to where we are in need via somatic awareness, engaged connection and a specific healing method of relating.

In IFS we discover where within us we are holding the parts that feel unwell. We find the protective parts that work so hard, for so long, to keep us together throughout our lives. We release our parts from the burdens they have been struggling to carry for us for too long and restore a healthy wholeness within.

Healing past pain and trauma brings us a restored sense of well-being to mind, body and spirit. Our bodies relax, our spirit blossoms and we feel at ease.

We become the ones we have been waiting for, and in the process, I believe, make the world a better place.

Chakra Reading & Energy work:

Chakra Reading on Karuna Detox Retreats

This reading maps the 12 chakras along the front and back of the body, using a pendulum. Each chakra is responsible for a different area of our self and our life – we have a chakra centre for health, sexuality, responsibility, connection, profession, service to the world, etc… Shoshana reads the energy pattern of your chakras, reveals energetic habits and highlights areas of strength and of weakness. She will teach you energetic exercises to support your connection and strengthening of your weak chakras and how to nourish your whole energy system.

Systemic and Family Constellation:

Family and Systemic Constellation sessionSystemic or family constellations is deeply therapeutic work that can reveal and harmonise areas of conflict in our lives.

Often used to explore options around pivotal life choices, gain insight in stuck areas,  stimulate healing around challenging relationships in the family or at work, and bring healing to difficult personal events.

These sessions take place on a one-to-one basis using self-representation to reveal hidden dynamics in the relational field. The representation, and therefore expression, of the hidden dynamics which are normally felt, but not seen or openly acknowledged, has great healing power. It enables us to gain insight and can stimulate a process of finding balance and harmony within the difficulty.

The work is based on the healing power of ‘acknowledging what is’ of Family Constellations, as developed by Burt Hellinger.

Deep Balance Shiatsu Massage:

Shiatsu is a Japanese deep tissue massage. It uses stretches and pressure to harmonise and rebalance the body’s energy, through meridians and acupressure points. You will feel like you have had a workout done for you while you relax! Your massage is done on a special futon, wear comfy clothing.

Colon Detox & Abdominal Massage:

Colon and abdominal massage work with the internal organs, meridians and pressure points of the colon and abdomen. Effective in releasing mucoid plaque and blockages, and improves colonic irrigation eliminations.

Double Detox / Acupuncture:

Detox Auricular (ear) acupuncture is a powerful method of supporting detoxification and addiction control. This therapy induces relaxation and enhances the release of toxins. Ear acupuncture is very popular in drug and alcohol rehabilitation due to these effects. The ‘Double Detox’ treatment includes half hour of ear acupuncture and half an hour of colon & abdominal massage and is perfectly honed to assist the release of toxins from the body.

Myofascia Release:

Clear the chatter of the mind, rest the body and release accumulated tensions. Releasing deep seated tension in the fascia of the body can give rise to deep relaxation, activation of the ‘rest and digest’ parasympathetic nervous system and relief from chronic pain. Our fascia system protects all organs by enveloping them and when the fascia becomes tense (due to accident or other damage) and dehydrated this tension radiates into the surroundings. By relaxing the fascia it can release it’s tension and regain is spongy softer holding nature, returning the body back to a sense of wellbeing, calm and safety.


Deeply relaxing and releasing foot massage. The soles of our feet contain a map of the whole body, by massaging the pressure points on the soles, the whole body is treated. Improves, circulation, oxygenation and immunity and is recommended for bowel and menstrual/ hormonal conditions.
