Meet the Healers

Here at Retreat tv, we have had an incredibly positive response to The Retreat. Lot of you are asking “I want to go”! “Where was the Retreat”? The Retreat is currently not one facility and was filmed across numerous locations, using our own professional therapy team. We can therefore not endorse or recommend any one of these locations.

In the near future, we hope to run Retreats and workshops with the Therapy team and will keep you posted on these future events. In the meantime if you have any questions or are interested in some of the individual modalities you have seen on the show, or you are looking for general well being advise, please do not hesitate to contact myself, or any of the individual Therapists directly.

Emerging ‘a new man’, he returned to the UK to put together the show, which would allow others to experience the benefits whilst documenting their experiences. Whilst on his Retreat, he trained in Reiki healing and offers healing and life coaching sessions.
