Bespoke Paths Reconnect Retreat at Heckfield Place
For those looking to recalibrate in style, it doesn’t get better than Heckfield Place’s four-day retreats. Tailored to your individual goals and needs, ‘Bespoke Paths’ offers a totally immersive experience that gives you the time and space needed to let your body fully heal itself. Led by The Bothy’s Wellbeing Curator, the retreat will help you tap into the natural rhythm of the earth and find yourself in the process.
Before you even arrive at Heckfield, you’ll have a thorough assessment of both your body and mind to help guide your individual programme. Once the ecopsychologist has connected with you, they’ll make a totally bespoke plan for you that will look a little something like this:
Day 1 – Settling in
You’ll meet the Wellbeing Curator and check into your exquisite room before enjoying a tour of The Bothy. The first session is designed to slow your nervous system and help set your intentions ahead of the coming days. You’ll end your day with a meal at either Marle or Hearth.
Day 2 – Grounding
Connecting with the natural world will be the order of the day and you’ll start with a naturopathic assessment and therapies designed to work alongside your circadian rhythms. After breakfast at Marle you’ll enjoy a 90 minute nature walk in the grounds.
This grounding start to the day is followed by a 135 minute treatment such as an abdominal massage or reflex zone therapy, designed to reinvigorate your energy pathways.
Lunch is prepared with your microbiome health in mind and can be taken in the beautiful surrounds of the estate’s sun room. After enjoying the plant-based delicacies, it’s back to The Bothy for use of the world-class facilities before dinner at Marle.
Day 3 – Active rebalancing
The benefits of cold water and time in nature cannot be underestimated, which is why day three starts with a woodland walk and cold water immersion to reduce inflammation, benefit mental health and increase circulation.
This invigorating start to the day is followed by a luxurious 90 minute radical botany facial to improve the skin’s tone, plumpness and radiance. Unlike any facial you’ve had before, it also includes advanced myofascial release, acupressure, craniosacral holds and breathwork designed to centre and energise more than just the skin.
Day three also includes a 20 minute osteopathy session with Benjamin Pluke M. Ost. His expert touch enhances blood flow and nerve supply to the tissues to activate your individual healing system. And, just as before, you’ll enjoy meals in the sun room, Marle and Hearth and use of The Bothy’s incredible facilities.
Day 4 – Contemplation and integration
After breakfast and checkout, it’s back to The Bothy for a 90 minute nature therapy session with Master Practitioner Amy Steadman (MSc) which combines traditional coaching and therapy methods with time in nature.
Your farewell lunch will be hosted by the Master Curator and offers a chance to reflect on your transformative journey. After you leave Heckfield Place you’ll also have a one-week follow up consultation to discuss progress and intention.
The Bespoke Paths Retreat is individually curated, so the above is just an idea of the kind of treatments and sessions you might enjoy.
