Programs & Retreats

Essentially, we’re committed to supporting the body’s natural propensity to restore itself. Our collective aim is to encourage the vital energy everyone possesses, to replenish mind, body and spirit.
Mindfulness is fundamental to this process. Stress may be defined as the inability to choose your thoughts. For our bodies, this translates into having trouble letting go. Allow us to show you how. We offer numerous alternatives that can assist you to unburden yourself. You’ll soon detect a new spring in your step! Every individual who comes to The Hydro is looking to find some form of relief or rejuvenation.
To achieve the desired result, we always start with a thorough consultation. Once we have established exactly what our guests are looking for – be it stress-relief, a weight-loss program, or just a thorough physical cleanse,  we have a number of highly effective therapies or treatment options to consider.

At the Hydro, we have several professional therapists, experts in their field, who can address deeper conditions and get you on the road to wellness.
