Detox Retreat Testimonials
At the end of each detox retreat, some of our clients are keen to share their experiences.
Many are striking, some are emotional, but all are authentic and unscripted.
All of these video testimonials are recorded at the end of their week's stay with us.
As well as these recorded reviews, many prefer to write their experiences rather than speak them (cameras can be so intimidating), so the previous years of written testimonials can be seen following this links below
You can also find us with a healthy set of reviews on tripadvisor by following this link.
