Who's it For ?

These unique health retreats in Thailand are for those who are debilitated by cranial pain. It may be that medication isn’t helping and your life is becoming unbearable. Your stress levels will no doubt by high and unmanageable too. These cranial stress relief retreats aim to release tension and stress, allowing you to feel at ease and able to learn new coping techniques at home. 

Chiva-Som Stress Relief retreats have been designed in answer to the increasing number of migraine and life disrupting headaches recorded by guests. In a digitally connected world, it’s difficult to switch off and find peace away from a screen. Hormonal imbalances can also play their part in cranial pain, which can be totally debilitating.

Chiva Som have introduced a minimum stay of ten nights on this luxury health retreat, to allow time for healing to take place. You’ll begin your cranial stress relief vacation with an initial Health and Wellness consultation, which can include a full physical analysis and skin consultation if desired. From this, your personal health program will be developed and this will include private and group work, as well as a nutritional plan. During your stay, you have access to all daily, group fitness classes, of which there are eight per day. You also have the use of the steam, sauna and Jacuzzi which are heavenly. You have a restorative Spa treatment every day of your stay and, in addition to this, holistic therapies and physiotherapy during the course of your holiday. As with all our suggested wellness programs, length of stay can vary and here we outline a ten-night stay, recommended by Chiva-Som.

During these ten-night Stress Relief holidays you will experience acupuncture, Bio-feedback Stress Management, a Holistic Health treatment, such as Craniosacral therapy or Reiki, Ayurvedic Shirodara, where warm, medicated oil is poured over the forehead and back, neck and shoulder massage. By completing a program of meditation and exercises to promote cranio-myofascial muscle relaxation, you can experience real relief from pain and learn how to maintain a pain free life at home.
