Wellness RetreatsWith Jo Darling
Rest, Restore, Revitalise
Chinese medicine has such a beautiful way of looking at life and health, taking its inspiration from nature. My retreats are created to harness the power of this ancient wisdom immersed in stunning natural locations in the UK and overseas.
Using my wealth of Chinese medical knowledge I curate your days to ensure you are effortlessly living in line with the available energy of the day and season. During our time together you’ll receive acupuncture, healing qi gong (simple guided meditation) plus I’ll share my passion for Yang Sheng (Chinese Medical self care) giving you the tools to take home and continue your journey.
Leave your retreat rested, restored and revitalised ready to spread the ripple of your new found energy into your life back home.
I don’t think I have the words to articulate how amazing and important this week has been for me. I’ve loved every moment and I’ve learned so so much. Just wow. The experience has been more than I could ever have hoped for. Huge gratitude to Jo for her energy, wisdom and compassion organising the retreat, looking after us all with such deep care and sharing her incredible knowledge with clarity and humour

Wellness Retreat May '24 Andalucian Mountains, Spain
Rest, restore and revitalise in the magical mountains, caves waterfalls and sunshine of Andalucia, Spain.
During our time together I’ll introduce you to the theory of the ‘Chinese Clock’ which explains that each organ has peak energy at a specific time of day. I’ll show you how to harness this energy to optimise your wellbeing.
We’ll live and breathe the concept through a series of workshops, gentle movement practices and acupuncture treatments to help you take care of yourself. With lots of spare time in between to enjoy the wonderful food, sunshine, pool and caves of our magical luxury retreat.
