What’s Queenly?

It's rare to find a retreat that pivots on a detox but also offers lots of options for different kinds of tastes and health issues. You'll be clearing body, mind and emotions all at once.

What’s Lowly?

You will need to block out a whole week for only three actual days detox, as each retreat starts on a Monday at 4pm and finishes on a Friday 10am, though you will need this extra time anyway to nurture yourself before and after.

Retreat Activities


All Platinum Healing retreats pivot on a juice detox programme with supplements, herbs and cleansing formulas included. You'll also have daily yoga classes, one group meditation session, one group NLP and life coaching workshop, one silent meditation day, and daily educational talks. There are then extra therapies and sessions on offer to help you deal with any issues.

There is a morning fitness class at 7am, followed by two yoga classes, starting at 7.30am. The first is advanced and lasts an hour, followed immediately by an intermediate/beginner session that’s also an hour. Everyone is welcome to attend both, one or neither. There is also an afternoon meditation class and a 6pm yoga class OR workshop as scheduled. The classes cater for beginners and more advanced yogis and are a perfect complement to the programme. Mats are provided and props are provided.

Guided walks in the countryside, are available private and fitness sessions can be booked in advance. A rebounder and a large trampoline is available for guests to use during the detox process.

Each morning while guests enjoy their juice at the dining table you’ll have an educational talk covering topics on juicing, fasting and kitchen equipment. On most evenings you also have the option of watching an educational film about juicing or similar while you drink your electrolyte broth.

One evening towards the end of each retreat guests have an hour’s group session on NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and life coaching. You set goals and fill in a wheel of life chart so you can leave the retreat with a clear focus.

Those new to detoxing can go for the dedicated Juice Detox & Yoga Retreat for a quick, effective way to detoxify the body and awaken its powerful cleansing and healing abilities, helping you to prevent illness, restore health, balance emotions and prolong life. You'll find a cleanse gives you renewed appreciation for the little things and a curbing of desire. A smoothie of avocado, blueberries, spinach and coconut water on the last morning might taste like the elixir of life on newly honed tastebuds.

Experienced detoxers who regularly juice at home and have already adopted a healthier lifestyle can opt for the Green Juice Cleanse, which starts at home with a pre-cleanse before the retreat itself. You'll drinking copious amounts of chlorophyll rich green juices to boost your energy levels, aid immunity and weight loss, fight the ageing process, improve alertness, and give your skin, nails and hair a healthy glow. This detox can help, amongst other things, those suffering with candida, Type 2 Diabetes, sugar addiction and hormone imbalance.

Or try an Inner Child Retreat, on which you'll experience various Inner Child Healing techniques, which aim to unearth and resolve childhood wounds that might show up in many negative ways such addiction, anxiety, depression or self-doubt.

Insider Tips

Pack plenty of warm clothes that can be layered – detoxing does funny things to your body temperature. Walking boots and waterproofs and a are essential if you want to get out and about – which we’d highly recommend. Cabin fever and the detox grumps are curable with a good dose of fresh air.

There is wifi for retreat-goers who need to keep in touch, although it’s really not encouraged and there is the option to give loved ones an emergency phone number, freeing you to turn off all phones and ipads and enjoy the calm that comes with a digital detox too.

When to Go

Come during the Spring and Summer to enjoy the rural peace at both locations, or drop in for a Winter retreat for a boost to your immunity.

Shared places

A large yoga and fitness barn with gym equipment is available, along with a juice bar and treatment studio. There’s also a cinema barn, sauna and relaxation area for enjoying time between classes and treatments. A games room, rebounder and trampoline are also available to retreat guests.

Shared places

Other spaces:

You’ll have use of private gardens with patios, courtyards and terraces, where you can enjoy stunning views and the roaming alpacas and peacocks. There’s an outdoor fire pit, seating areas and private parking spaces too.

Sustenance

Each retreat pivots around a detox programme, on which you’ll be served three fresh organic, juices each day using green, root and other alkalizing fruits and vegetables with a spoonful of psyllium husk to keep your system moving. They are 80% vegetable to 20% fruit, to keep sugar to a minimum. You’ll also get a shot of milk thistle to help support the liver, a shot of wheatgrass or aloe vera, a cup of hot water and cider vinegar to help with cleansing, and as much water and herbal tea as you can drink.

 

Platinum Healing detox retreat englandA raw food snack pack is available in the afternoon for those really climbing the walls and in the evening a comforting mug of vegetable broth serves as supper. The lack of fibre gives the body an opportunity to stop digesting and focus on detoxing and regenerating. On the last evening you’ll break the fast with a plate of fresh vegetables and at the end of the retreat you’ll be given probiotics to help your gut cope with the changes. There’s also a Pukka tea station where you can top up on some herbal hot stuff at anytime.

I was diagnosed as having Thygeson superficial punctate keratitis (TSPK) in 2008. TSPK is a chronic disease, lasting years to decades. Multiple, whitish gray, intraepithelial corneal lesions, with minimal to no conjunctival involvement, are trademark characteristics of the disease.

Symptoms include discomfort such as burning or irritation, foreign body sensation, mild degrees of tearing, and photophobia (light sensitivity). There are occasional minor decreases in visual acuity.

At its worst I wouldn’t go out, especially in the sun. This would cause problems with everyday life. I always wore sunglasses in any weather as would lessen the discomfort with light. Air conditioning would dry them out and they would be very sore. They would water and would start to close, sometimes I had to fight to keep them open it was, at times, extremely debilitating. I would have eye drops and use a humidifier at night. As its uncommon, it was hard for people to understand and take seriously especially at work.

I went to Platinum Healing retreat in September 2015. It never crossed my mind that this would help let alone make it disappear! And that’s exactly what happened.

We had juices made from organic fruit and veggies and learnt about nutrition and what should go into our bodies to support our whole system.

On day 3 we went out for a foraging walk and I suddenly realised that I wasn’t aware of any sensation, in fact I wasn’t aware of feeling my eyes at all when I always had been. I took my sunglasses off and had no reaction to the light. I cannot express my elation when I realised what had happened. I was so relieved and felt so incredibly happy.

I had a hospital appointment at the eye clinic the last day of the retreat. When I went, the Doctor looked at my eyes through a lamp and confirmed that there wasn’t any sign of any lesions (previous trip in June I had 7/8 lesions in each eye) the doctor discharged me!

This has made a huge difference to my everyday life and I couldn’t be more grateful to Platinum healing.

My eyes look better and I’ve received comments on how open and bright they look.

I cannot recommend this retreat enough and all the information they give you regarding health and nutrition.

I love them and am forever grateful.

I attended the Platinum Healing Retreat in Arundel from 4th to 8th February 2019 for the sole purpose of stopping smoking. I had tried Alan Carr’s sessions four times, hypnotherapy and acupuncture, to no avail. I was doubtful that the Stop Smoking programme would work and asked for assurance, given that I had smoked for around 50 years. I was informed that they had people succeed that have smoked since they were young teenagers for 40-50 years. I had one hypnotherapy session and one acupuncture session on 5th February and the second hypnotherapy session the following day. With no more programmes booked I spent much of Thursday away, visiting Arundel Cathedral and Littlehampton beach in the interesting company of two fellow guests.

The Stop Smoking programme completely failed for me. I returned home and immediately started smoking again. For me this programme was a very expensive waste of time and money. I shared a room with a very likeable woman but it didn’t work out well because I apparently snored and disrupted her sleep which troubled me of course. I spent the following night sleeping on the sofa in the downstairs lounge. This upset her and she persuaded me, against my own inclination, to spend the following two nights not sleeping at all well in our shared room, listening to the permanently dripping shower. My trolley bag was heavy because of all the items we were advised to bring, including a large bulky throw which proved to be unnecessary. The detox, yoga and talks were sadly wasted on me. I could have bought a juicer and changed my eating habits myself.
