Extreme Wellness retreat at Maruia Hot Springs


Do you feel tired, stressed or disconnected from your own body?

Next month our sister spring — Maruia Hot Springs — is holding a one-of-a-kind wellness retreat that is sure to put the spring back into your step, plus a whole lot more.

Hosted by co-owner and wellness expert Professor Marc Cohen (aka Dr Marc), guests will be led on a six-day, five-night journey through Extreme Bathing® and Adventure Bathing® that will leave them feeling intensely human and abundantly alive. The experience will include forest bathing, sauna bathing, adventure bathing and, of course, bathing in Maruia’s geothermal pools against a stunning backdrop of mountains and river valleys.

In this retreat you will:

• Expand your experience of comfort, relaxation and joy and explore the edge of your comfort zone.
• Access the deep inner-well of your being and hack into your biological operating system though focused breathing, activity and relaxation sessions.
• Discover lifestyle tweaks to overcome pain, inflammation and procrastination.
• Practice mastery over your mind and body, and gain confidence you can perform feats you thought impossible.
• Transform your world through bathing and simple lifestyle practices that build resilience and self-confidence and foster extreme wellness.
