Find your essence by using traditional and modern techniques, blending “forcing” with “letting go.” A search for the perfect inner balance to be achieved in small steps through the practice of Yoga, Bioenergetics and techniques of body manipulation. A program for everyone in the unique setting of Erikoussa, the island of heather. A place where mass tourism is banned and where you can enjoy the reflections of the sometimes emerald green, sometimes blue, crystal-clear sea water surrounded by the intense green of centennial cypress trees and the lighter green of olive, mastic, arbutus trees and all sorts of Mediterranean shrub. Above all, the sound of cicadas.
This is what the Acantha Boutique Hotel provides, a magical place where we will not need anything else but our will to “letting ourselves go” and observing curiously and consciously what happens inside and around us. Even because any small change can have a positive impact for us by improving the quality of our daily lives. Remember that “a thousand-mile journey begins with a single step.”
The goals of the wellness program designed by the Acantha Boutique Hotel for its guests are to change their internal clock for raising awareness of their potentiality, to improve the quality of their sleep and to achieve a beneficial state of rest.
Samule Ruggeri will lead this program for inner balance; he is an expert of Shiatsu techniques and yoga disciplines he has mastered after a long training course at the “Kavalyadhama Institute”, the Government Research and Teaching Institute, in India, a country where he has improved his knowledge of Ayurveda medicine and techniques. Martina Astengo will join Samuel; she graduated in Naturopathy at the Riza Institute of Psychosomatic Medicine, where she specialized in the reading of the body and in bioenergy techniques, to which she adds a twenty-year experience in the art of beauty, sport, anti-stress and Thai massage as well as expertise in foot reflexology.
Our advice is to start your stay with a private session in order to help you in recalibrating your mind and body and defining your needs to reach the desired wellness.
