2020 has been a year of uncertainty and tension for most, yet there’s a silver lining amid the chaos. Retreats and resorts prepare for post-COVID relief, meaning many new wellness programmes will be catered towards self-healing. Located on the west of metropolitan Shanghai, in culturally-rich Suzhou, SANGHA Retreat by Octave Institute is launching new immune-boosting programmes to regenerate the mind and body.
Founded by visionary Fred Tsao, SANGHA Retreat by Octave Institute is an integrated and immersive wellbeing sanctuary, located in China’s wellness destination, Suzhou. Combining east-meets-west elements in its principles and practices, the retreat strives to promote change and mindful learning in a holistic environment.
The newly-launched Immune Boosting Programmes are designed to meet the emotional and physical needs of individuals recovering from post-COVID stress. The retreat uses the power of touch, a cleansing diet, and natural elements like water, light, heat and sound to balance the energetic spirit with the body at its deepest levels. Guests can expect an in-depth evaluation of stress, sleep, nutrition, thought patterns and pollution and how to improve immunity. With the option of staying three nights or six nights, guests can indulge in the likes of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Aromatherapy Massage, Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Lymphatic Drainage, Personal Training, Pilates and more during their experience.
“We are witnessing the onset of a new era of consciousness and wellbeing. The force of evolution is always surprising, but humanity evolves in line with the challenges it faces. Without common beliefs, togetherness and collaboration, global sustainability cannot be realised. We need to recognise that we are each responsible for choosing a new direction. The alarm has rung. It is time to get up and live our truth, our nature, and our joy.” says Fred Tsao, Founder of SANGHA Reteat by Octave Institute.
All of SANGHA Retreat’s programmes include extensive assessments and lifestyle consultations, anti-inflammatory meals, and access to extensive hydrothermal facilities. There is also a ‘Daily Living Habits Calendar’ which offers the choice of up to nine daily complimentary workshops, which includes a range of wellness opportunities including mindful stress reduction, sleep coaching and sound healing to yoga, breathwork and an introduction to Huangdi Neijing.
SANGHA Retreat’s 3-night Immune Boost program starts from RMB 19,100 (USD2,677) for single occupancy or RMB 30,800 per couple (USD4,206).
