FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CONSULT

(Value of $500 USD for 2 individual sessions )


What Is Functional Medicine?

Drawing on Eastern and Western medicine, expert practitioners guide you to health and longevity through practical, personalized prevention and solution. Functional medicine providers spend time listening to you and gathering your medical history. We use this information to identify the root cause(s) of the illness, including triggers such as poor nutrition, stress, toxins, allergens, genetics, and your microbiome (the bacteria living in and on your body).

Once we identify the triggers, we can customize a healthy living plan for you. Your plan will address many aspects of your life, from physical needs, including nutrition, exercise, and sleep, to mental and emotional stressors related to social, work, and community life.

The foundation of functional medicine is the use of food as first-line therapy. The right nutrition, combined with lifestyle and behavioral interventions, will help you take charge of your health.

DAILY YOGA SESSIONS

(Value of $200 USD for 7 group sessions)

Immerse yourself in a daily practice of hatha yoga to maintain body and mind balance. Relieve stress, tension and muscle stiffness, and keep the body strong, centered, powerful and flexible, while learning to quiet the mind.

This program is ideal for complete yoga novices looking for an alternative and enjoyable body and mind practice who wish to develop an understanding of how the body engages in each posture and enhance the body’s natural intuition.

Group Yoga
Meditating by the Pool

MEDITATION SESSIONS

(Value of $200 USD for 7 group sessions)

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.

The Lamrim takes us step-by-step through carefully crafted meditations so we can purposefully nourish the qualities in our mind that lead to our happiness and reduce our painful thoughts and feelings. For example, some of the meditations help us enhance our self-confidence, empathy, or contentment. Others aid us in overcoming distractions, anger, or depression.

.

In this class, we will go one-by-one through the Lamrim, drawing out how we can personally use these meditations and create our own meditation practice. There will be a special emphasis on the art of meditation and how to really make our meditations effective.

MOBILITY AND STRENGTH TRAINING

(Value of $ 200 USD for 7 group lessons)

Our workouts combine high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and strength training to develop endurance and muscle all in one. Your body gets an aerobic workout to improve your heart health and endurance, coupled with strength training to build muscle, promote fat loss, and increase your metabolic rate. Our formula is as effacious as it gets.


HIIT alternates short bursts of intense exercise with recovery periods of rest or light activity, like sprinting for 30 seconds then walking for 30 seconds. These spurts of intensity cause your heart rate to go up and down in quick succession, which can boost heart health by lowering your blood pressure and resting heart rate and improving your oxygen capacity and circulation. This also encourages major calorie burn, sometimes as much as 700 to 1,000 calories per class. Your body has to work hard to replenish depleted oxygen from all that heart-pumping HIIT, which means extra calorie and fat burn after the workout.


Our strength training builds muscle through bodyweight exercises, resistance band drills, and weight lifting, says Lemere. Since classes are tailored to specific parts of your body, the strength-training sections might focus on arms and abs, chest and back, or lower body. And weight training benefits more than just your muscles: It can also burn fat, boost your metabolism, and strengthen your bones.


As a part of our wellness offering you get 1 personazlied workout session a day + a group stretch and mobility session a day

 

Monday - Arms & Abs

Tuesday - Full Body (Lower Focus)

Wednesday - Chest, Back & Abs

Thursday - Abs & Ass

Friday - Total Body

Saturday - Full Body (Upper Focus)

REIKEI.jpg

REIKI SESSIONS

(Value of $ 250 for 3 reiki sessions)

Reiki is a form of healing that involves the practitioner channeling positive energy into the patient’s body through gentle touch. The aim is to restore a general sense of wellbeing, aiming to cleanse the mind and body, to revive the senses, and achieve greater happiness and health.

We are so glad to be fusing this modality into your upcoming retreat. Support Your Life Change or Transition

Think of reiki as one of your best friends who is a great listener and with whom you share your deepest secrets. Your friend’s healing energy is gentle, yet powerful, and goes where it is needed. You may receive an answer or a nudge into a new direction that you were not expecting. Whether it is a loss of a loved one or a relationship, a recent job offer, or move to a new location, reiki eases all into harmony with grace.


Heal the Past, Present, or Future

Traditional rules of time and space don’t always apply in energy healing. Reiki can present the tools needed to repair past hurt. It can assist you in forgiving, and help you move forward with confidence. The present time is all we truly have, and reiki guides you to engage fully in this very moment. If there is concern about the future, distance healing can be sent to improve upcoming events.

Delight in Ultimate Relaxation

A reassuring massage for the soul. A warm shower of unconditional love and healing light. When we rest, we can be our best! In a yoga and reiki retreat, the Reiki offers deep relaxation and can help rid the body and mind of stress and worry. When we surrender to relaxation, the mind becomes calm and thoughts are crystal clear.

Boost Your Creativity in a Reiki Retreat.

Spending time in nature during our yoga and reiki retreat will release the chatter of the mind. Reiki can get your creative juices flowing, and bring about fresh and exciting concepts. The subtle energy helps to seal ideas, and offer ways to bring them to fruition. Reiki came to me during a very stressful time, and later brought about a transformation that encouraged me to dedicate my life to helping others. I have witnessed it guide people into the best versions of themselves.

PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULT SESSIONS AND CBT

As a part of your retreat, you will have CBT sessions with a Psychologist as well as Biofeedback sessions. Biofeedback sessions help make you more aware of your stress triggers and pick up on the signs of this within your body and deal with these feelings before they go any further. Therapies such as this help make us more self-aware, instead of letting anxiety or bad thoughts snowball and become out of control, you can put techniques in place to combat them early on, and slowly minimize their frequency over time.
 

The small size of our retreats allows our Psychologists to create custom treatment plans. These are crafted for each client’s unique mental health needs and goals. The tailored treatment plan results from a thorough intake process.

 

During this meeting, you will review your past mental health and health history with the clinician. This, plus the use of screening tools, helps provide a wealth of details that help form the treatment plan. From this data, they will arrive at a diagnosis, and then design a plan that is unique to your needs.

Types of Evidence-Based Therapies

Mental health treatment uses therapy as the basis for bringing about relief and change. Examples of those used at the mental health retreat include:

 

CBT - CBT helps you make core changes in the way you respond to a stressor or trigger. You are taught how to take a pause, to reshape your thoughts, and to take constructive action.

 

DBT - DBT focuses on four areas. These are emotion regulation, to live in the moment, to improve relationships, and to manage stress.

 

Interpersonal Therapy - These sessions teach new related techniques. You learn how to resolve conflicts, and how to communicate better.

 

Psychodynamic Therapy - This therapy delves into childhood where old pain points still affect your present quality of life.

 

Exposure Therapy - If you have a history of trauma, this type of therapy will help to reduce the impact of the traumatic memories.

 

Therapy sessions are available in both a one-on-one setting or a group setting. If meds will help reduce the symptoms they will be prescribed as part of the treatment plan.

IV THERAPY

(Value of $250 for 1 IV session)

NUTRIENT INFUSION BOOSTERS

When undergoing an IV vitamin treatment, clients receive a liquid mixture of vitamins and minerals through a small tube inserted into a vein. This allows the nutrients to be absorbed quickly and directly into the bloodstream, a method that produces higher levels of the vitamins and minerals in your body than your regular intake from food or supplements. Several factors affect our body’s ability to absorb nutrients in the stomach. Factors include age, metabolism, health status, genetics, interactions with other goods we consume, and the chemical and physical makeup of the nutritional supplement or food. 

 

Enjoy our IV infusion therapy on day 1 of your retreat to target a variety of wellness needs by replenishing hydration, aiding recovery from jet lag, restoring vitamin & nutrient levels, refreshing your cosmetic appearance, and revitalizing your overall wellbeing. Also, signature vitamin and nutrient booster shot injections are also offered and designed to prolong energy, assist with natural metabolic weight loss, promote overall wellness, and give you the extra physical power you crave during your fitness routines, intimate life, or career.

All IV therapies are offered by a fully trained MD, in collaboration with the Vitality Medical Clinic

IM SHOTS

Intramuscular vitamin injections administered directly into the muscle are more effective than oral vitamins alone due to increased absorption. Including vitamins in any wellness regimen will help to promote balance, rejuvenation, and vibrancy.

 

Vitamin shots are a great way to get yourself back on track. Vitamin absorption through the bloodstream can be more efficiently utilized by the body, whether by injection into a muscle or infusion directly into the bloodstream. Absorption through your digestive system, while also very effective is slower and often requires a more frequent dosage. VIVA Wellness offers all three options—IM Vitamin Injections, IV Vitamin Infusions, and Vitamin Supplements.

 

Some of our more popular IM Vitamin Shots:

Vitamin B12: Energy metabolism, mood, and blood health

B-Complex: energy, stress, metabolism, and immune support

Weight-Loss Support: essential B vitamins plus fat-burning amino acids

Weight-Loss Support Plus: Maximum strength lipotropic amino acids and B vitamins

Glutathione: brightens skin, promotes collagen, detoxifies liver, and strengthens hair, skin, and nails.

Vitamin D3: bone, joint, cardiovascular, and metabolism health.

 

Vitamin injections can help to support your overall health and wellness journey.

FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY

(Value of $300 for 3 Stretch sessions)

FST is a form of table-based assisted stretching that focuses on the fascia and joint capsule to achieve optimal strength, flexibility, pain relief and performance. It is a pain-free method of stretching, typically performed on a massage table, that can provide almost instant results.

 

Here are some of the main benefits of FST:

 

Pain Reduction

Problems with your fascia can cause you actual physical pain. The tightness in your fascia can encourage unnatural motions or postures that increase your odds of minor injuries and unwanted pressure on your nervous system. Those minor injuries, in turn, can encourage even more unnatural motions.

 

Improve Circulation

Lingering tightness or tension anywhere in your body decreases circulation. By reducing tightness and tension, FST improves blood flow. It helps speed up recovery from exercise by allowing more blood to reach your muscles faster, which improves toxin removal. It improves overall energy by allowing more oxygen to reach your muscles and organs. That additional oxygen can also improve your mental clarity.

 

Rehab

People often seek sports medicine, surgery, massage, or stretching to rehab an injury or break up scar tissue, which can be painful. Injuries and the surgeries that repair many of them can damage or distort the fascia. Once that happens, it can further limit your range of motion by making movement painful. Fascial stretch therapy can help loosen or realign the fascia. This helps restore mobility, one of the key goals of physical therapy. Of course, stretch therapy can’t replace PT, but it can complement some of the activities associated with it.

 

Weight Loss

FST doesn’t result in weight loss directly, however it does help facilitate the physical activities that lead to weight loss.
