COMPLEMENTARY & HEALING THERAPIES

A WORLD OF CHOICE

Integrated Holistic Therapies

The Istana practice is holistic and integrated. Each component of your therapy program works in harmony with the others and they will all bring benefit to your healing process. To meet your unique needs we will select from a range of Eastern and Western evidence-based therapies to restore your body, mind and soul to a state of grace and calm.

Through the application of truly holistic programs, we have achieved extraordinary results in the treatment of depression, anxiety and substance dependence.

Massage Therapy

There is no shortage of massage therapists in Bali, both local and Western practitioners. However, we only use the best and most highly qualified therapists on the island. If you are agreeable we will schedule a daily massage in your program.

Apart from the otherworldly feeling of a good massage, there are more benefits:

  • Stimulated blood flow
  • Relieved muscle¬†tension
  • Lowered psychological stress

Reflexology

Reflexology is another blissful form of bodywork that involves applying pressure to the hands, feet, arms and lower legs to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body areas.

At the very least reflexology is fantastically relaxing and a great way to alleviate stress. For many, it lifts their mood and soothes body pains.

Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture is one of the most popular traditional Chinese practices and is widely accepted in the West as an effective component of the holistic treatment model. Most of our clients experience positive results from acupuncture, and some have experienced impressive improvements for ailments that they had all but given up on.

Acupuncture is often used for the treatment of:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia

Acupuncture has been tremendously helpful as an adjunct to detoxification treatment.

Naturopathy

Naturopathy emphasises harmony with nature in the restoration and support for the inherent natural healing systems of your body.
It assists in:

  • Achieving optimum health and strengthening constitutional weaknesses using herbal medicine and nutrition
  • Strengthening and cleansing parts of your body that may be damaged/compromised from long-term consumption of toxins
  • Increasing your energy levels
  • Helping you reach a more functional level of well-being and will give you the optimal nutritional support for a healthy and sustained recovery.

You will have an initial naturopathic consultation which involves a detailed interview identifying particular areas where you need support and strengthening. Through the use of specific herbs, nutrients and foods your optimum health and well-being can be regained.

Physiotherapy

Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care our physiotherapists can assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.

Physiotherapy can help repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve the overall quality of your life.
