About The Place Retreats

Located in Seminyak, on the west coast of Bali, The Place Retreats is a private sanctuary, a hidden oasis where guests come to Recover, Revive and Renew themselves. Upon entering the lush island retreat centre, you will be supported, guided and nurtured by expert practitioners of psychotherapy, meditation, yoga and bodywork.

Since opening in 2015, The Place Retreats has earned a reputation for excellence of service and clinical success stories.

Beyond Wellness

The approach of The Place Retreat is heavily focussed on the connection between the Heart and the Mind. When this connection is lost or strained, people can become lost, anxious, depressed, or even numb. By uniting the heart and mind we open up powerful pathways to healing, recovery and the formation of new, healthy beliefs, patterns and habits.

We achieve this through an intensive combination of psychotherapy, daily Kundalini & Yin Yoga, meditation, hypnotherapy and wellness treatments such as cranio-sacral therapy, acupuncture and massage. These practices work in synergy to relax the nervous system, calm the mind and create the internal space needed for recovery of the true self.

You will learn physical, emotional and psychological techniques that will help you to help yourself, so that you can start afresh, completely renewed, becoming the person you were meant to be.

Treating the Root Cause

The true power behind the therapeutic programme of The Place Retreats lies in treating the root causes of mental and emotional suffering. Each of us carries within us our past traumas that lead to things like anxiety, depression, eating disorders, stress, emptiness and the variety of ways we numb ourselves to this pain.

At The Place, we have created a safe and compassionate environment where it is possible for the individual to look back on their traumas, to deconstruct them from a position of strength, and ultimately come to terms and let them go.

You will be totally free of all responsibilities. Meals, transport and activities are all catered for by our staff, giving you the time and space that you need to focus on yourself being able to let go of the stressful everyday life, finding true guidance for new directions.
