Zoe and Carey's detox goal is to create a weight loss retreat that is all about you, to enable you to let go of any emotional or physical weight that you have been carrying around, so you leave looking and feeling fantastic. As well as experiencing one-on-one weight loss therapy sessions using hypnotherapy and EFT therapy, we also teach you how to practice EFT therapy - a fantastic tool to help you keep the physical and emotional weight off for life. At our weight loss retreat Detox Center in Turkey we offer a true break from the routine and often chaotic rhythm of our busy lives.
How can detoxing help with weight loss and anti-ageing?
Here is one of the biggest shocks of all - toxins in the body make it hard to lose weight. If you have a weight problem of any kind then you need to reduce your body's toxic load. After years of exposure to toxins the body can no longer keep up with their elimination, so they get re-circulated back into the bloodstream, damage the liver and other organs. If your liver is not working well then your body's fat metabolism is not going to be working well either. If your digestion is poor then you might be carrying around several pounds (if not kilos) of impacted waste matter. All of this can leave you tired and sluggish and of course, much less able to fight off cellulite and the effects of ageing.
How can EFT therapy and Hypnotherapy help with weight loss?
Many of us tend to eat when we feel anxious, stressed, upset, lonely, empty, bored or nervous. For many people this behaviour stems from childhood and as any yo-yo dieter know' it's a difficult habit to break.
So, what can we do about it? A recent exciting breakthrough in complementary therapy is EFT therapy (Emotional Freedom Technique) a simple, gentle but highly effective therapy that often has immediate results.
EFT is a combination of Western talk based therapies and Eastern energy therapies like acupuncture. This combination of tapping and voicing of the statements works to clear the 'energy disruption' or 'emotional block' from your body's energy system, thus restoring your mind and body's balance which is essential for weight loss (both emotional and physical, cravings, anxiety etc.) Hypnotherapy for confidence and weight loss is fantastic for uncovering and clearing unhelpful and negative beliefs you may have around food (we are often told in childhood to 'finish everything on your plate') and replacing with new helpful supportive beliefs and increasing motivation to exercise and eat healthily.

Detox Programme Supporting Therapies
The Life Co detox Center offers supporting therapies such as yoga, meditation and steam bath are included in your detox program.
In addition, massage therapies are available and are a relaxing and pampering way to help your body remove toxins.
Yoga is an important aspect of our purification program. When we eliminate old poisons from our system, negative emotions are also released. Yoga is a powerful tool for bringing harmony and balance to the body on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
The morning Yoga practice is an important and very beneficial aspect of detoxing. During our Detox Program your body starts to release toxins quite rapidly. Yoga postures and breathing exercises accelerate the elimination of these toxins which may otherwise remain longer in the system resulting in side effects such as headaches, nausea and a general feeling of tiredness.
Meditation is a great way to connect with yourself, to just concentrate on what is, right here, right now. Meditation is not a process of self-forgetfulness and escape. It is discovering one's self in a state when the mind becomes free from your fears and worries. Meditation can induce a deep state of rest which encourages the repair and improved health of all cells and tissues of the body. Regular practice of meditation increases the ability to understand, memorize and retain knowledge.
Herbal Steam Bath & Turkish Bath
Using the herbal steam bath is one of the most efficient and pleasant ways to rid the body of toxic wastes thorough the skin and lungs. Highly aromatic medicinal herbs are added to the water of an ordinary steam room system to produce a therapeutic herbal steam that permeates both skin and lungs. This is also a form of aromatherapy, immersing your entire body in aromatic essence while inhaling hot damp vapor that carries the medicinal essences of the herbs deeply into your lungs where they quickly absorb into the bloodstream and circulate directly to every tissue of the body delivering their therapeutic powers to each and every cell. At the same time, the hot steam opens the pores and allows the herbal vapors to enter the skin to draw toxins out with the sweat and also cleanses the body from the inside and the outside providing a doubly detoxifying effect as well as very relaxing soothing experience. The Turkish Bath and Herbal Steam Bath are included in the detox program rates.
Using a trampoline (or rebounder) is a fun and effective way to support your detox. It increases breathing, blood and lymph circulation and promotes sweating, all which speed up the removal of toxins. The gravity and anti-gravity from jumping pure oxygen and nutrients into every cell of your body, while pressing out wastes. Jumping for 10 - 15 minutes is a great overall workout that exercises both the body and brain.
The inversion table is a relaxing tool that helps your body remove toxins. By lying upside down, blood and lymph circulation increase, bringing cleansing oxygen and nutrients and removing wastes from cells. It is also known to relieve back pain, muscle tension and stress.
In addition to the therapies included as part of the detox program, we offer flotation tanks and calming massages to support your detoxification. These therapies are used in spas and health centers around the world, and include traditional Far East and Turkish techniques.
Tranquility is essential for the detoxing process. Our detox center offers a flotation tank where you can relax in stillness. The floating tank is filled with 35°C salt water and eliminates gravity, bringing the floater close to an experience of total weightlessness.
Traditional Balinese Massage (oil)
Originating from Bali, this is a deep pressure massage using medium-depth strokes and pressure points to reach below the superficial muscle layers. This massage helps to balance the energy centers and improve integration of your internal systems. To complement the massage techniques, the blended oil has properties that help relieve muscular tension, improve and balance subtle energies for a heightened sense of well-being.
Traditional Thai Massage (no oil)
Thai massage works on the theory of intrinsic energy flow and energy balance to promote better health and healing processes. This massage concentrates on careful application of pressure to distribute energy, release blockages and stretch the muscles leaving the body relaxed, energetic and free from stiffness. Essentially, the effect is similar to a yoga workout that the therapist applies to you.
Aromatherapy Massage (oil)
This massage uses oils applied to the body in a combination of long and sweeping movements to stimulate circulation and kneading movements. This manipulates the deeper tissue of muscles and joints. Aromatherapy uses the fragrant essence of plants and flowers.
Chi - Bergamot / Ylang Ylang / Lavender / Jasmine / Cypress Tree / Geranium
Detox - Rosemary/ Lemon / Fennel
Relaxing - Ylang Ylang / Lavender / Rosemary
Revitalizing - Orange / Lemon Grass / Sweet Basil
Chi Nei Tsang (Abdominal Massage)
This internal organ massage works directly over the navel and surrounding abdominal areas where stress, tension and negative emotions accumulate. If this area is congested, the whole energy of the body is blocked, slowly weakening the internal organs and decreasing energy and vitality.
Shiatsu (no oil)
Shaitsu is an oriental therapy of physical and energy rebalance. It acts through pressure with thumbs, fingers and palms applied to determined areas and points of the human body. Among the diverse benefits of shiatsu is improved elasticity of the skin, better circulation and increased flexibility. Shiatsu also helps balance the digestive and nervous systems.
Reflexology is a therapy where pressure is applied to the feet or hands to treat a wide range of ailments and to promote psychological well-being and optimum health. The feet and hands are regarded as mirrors of the body and pressure on specific points (reflexes) treats corresponding areas of the body. Reflexology is holistic and treats each patient as an individual rather than a set of physical symptoms.
Traditional Turkish Bath Scrub & Foam Massage
Toxic wastes become very concentrated in perspiration and they can damage the skin as they pass through for excretion. Damage to skin may be prevented by soaking daily in a traditional Hamam.
Rooms: Mini-apartments, all on the beautifully landscaped site. Your home-from-home includes a TV, kitchenette, ionizer, hairdryer, fridge and safety deposit box. There is full use of internet for those that wish to stay in touch!
