For an alternative holiday in the heart of Devon
We offer a variety of therapies here at Hideaway Camping. There is limited availability on these so please contact us in advance. It is a perfect setting in which to relax and unwind and focus on your wellbeing.
All treatments are for one hour and cost £30 (half price for children under 16).
If the weather is good, you can enjoy a Reiki treatment in the woods, benefiting from the healing energies of nature all around you.
Below is an explanation of the therapies that we offer and their benefits.
Reflexology is a therapy based on the discovery that there are reflex points on the feet and hands which correspond to organs, systems and structures within the entire body. The feet can be seen as a map of the body and, by using special pressure techniques to stimulate the points on the feet, imbalances can be both detected and effectively treated to restore balance and wellbeing. Reflexology improves circulation of blood and lymph, helping to nourish cells and eliminate waste from the body. It induces a state of relaxation and helps to counteract the negative effects of stress as well as being used to treat all sorts of minor and chronic health conditions.
Reiki is a hands-on healing technique, one of the most ancient healing methods known to mankind. It may have originated in Tibet and was re-discovered in the nineteenth century by a Japanese monk called Dr Mikao Usui. It is a natural and simple healing method which allows you to absorb more life force energy and balance the energies in your body. Reiki not only promotes your physical wellbeing but also has a positive effect on your emotional and spiritual equilibrium. Each person’s experience of Reiki is unique to them, but there are some common sensations such as heat, tingling, cool patches or energy moving around the body. Most people will feel an immediate sense of peace and tranquility as the relaxing and soothing energy helps to melt away stresses and tension. After the treatment many people feel relaxed, refreshed, clearer and more content in themselves.
Massage positively affects our health and wellbeing through relaxation of the mind and the muscles. It relaxes tight and tense muscles and helps to relieve aches and pains. It improves circulation and supports the immune system by removing impurities and toxins. Massage also helps to increase joint mobility and improve muscle tone, and it releases endorphins which help to relieve pain and make us feel good.
At Hideaway Camping we can also offer double massages for you and your partner.
Shamanic healing is thought to be one of the oldest healing practices, stretching back thousands of years and linking to indigenous cultures across the globe. Essentially an energy-based therapy, shamanism is rooted in the belief that everything has an energy and that, sometimes, work needs to be done to bring things back into balance. Typically, the shamanic practitioner sees health issues as being connected to the loss of energy, or power, and will work to balance these issues, often seeking to return lost energy, remove negativity and return the client to wholeness.
" I was lucky enough to indulge in Hideaway's therapy room. It is tucked away in a tranquil cornerof the siteand felt like a million miles away. Amy's knowledge of all the different therapies was amazing and she reccomended therapies based on my ailments. Her magic hands massaged away any aches and pains and the mixture of reflexology and reiki even managed tomake me fall asleep! Amy has a wonderful calm aura that allows you to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet away from the kiddies. I would highly reccomend indulgin in one of her treatments, you won't regret it! I enjoyed it so much I also booked my husband in for a treatment and he still says it was the best massage he'sever had. I was also pleasantly surprised at the value for money her treatments were and I'm already planning the next treatments for next years camping trip." H. Amos
