Wellness Retreat, Andalucia Spain May 2024
Immerse Yourself In Ancient Wisdom 6-11th May 2024
Harness the power of Chinese medical wisdom - rest, restore and revitalise with me, in the magical mountains of Andalucia, Spain
Rest, Restore, Revitalise
Join me, Jo Darling, Chinese medicine practitioner to rest, restore and revitalise in the magical mountains, 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.
‘This experience has been more than I could ever have hoped for.
I’ve loved every moment and I’ve learnt so, so much. Huge gratitude to Jo for her energy, wisdom and compassion. Organising the retreat, looking after us with such deep care and sharing her incredible knowledge with clarity and humour.
Jo, you’re an extraordinary human. We all hugely appreciate the extra miles you went to make this such a fabulous experience for us all.'

''Unique and quirky with a focus on comfort, beauty and being at one with nature,
Surrounded by fresh running spring water, pure mountain air and warm Spanish sunshine.’'
Harnessing The Power of The Chinese Clock
Chinese medicine has such a beautiful way of looking at life and health. It takes its inspiration from observing nature. In ancient China health practitioners observed health and dis-ease and the self-regulating nature of the organs. These medics distilled their observations into what we call today the 'Chinese Clock'.
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. You'll learn tools and techniques to help you live and breathe the framework and optimise your wellbeing.
