Naturopathy - 50 mins
The body is a complex organism with the innate ability to heal itself when we learn to listen and respond to its needs. The naturopathic approach seeks to ﬁnd the causes of any symptoms and with enough support and a reduction of the underlying stress, the body will naturally seek to cure itself. Naturopaths use herbs, homeopathy, ﬂower remedies, nutritional supplements, lifestyle correction, exercise, detoxiﬁcation and nutrition to guide you back on track.
Naturopath + Iridology & Zinc Testing - 50 mins
Iridology is the art and science of analysing the colour and structure of the iris to determine tissue integrity throughout the body, thereby gaining valuable health information regarding strengths and weaknesses throughout your entire body system. Zinc testing aids in identifying possible deﬁciencies which impact the proper functioning of the immune and digestive systems, control of diabetes, reduction of stress levels and an increased rate of healing for acne and wounds.
Naturopathy & Biocommunication - 80 mins
This comprehensive consultation combines naturopathic science and the advanced technology of biocommunication. This diagnostic technology uses a specialised non—invasive, stimulus-response exchange to understand on a deep physiological level what your body is saying. Your consultation also includes Iridology and Zinc testing. All the analytical data provides input for the Naturopath’s assessment which informs the lifestyle advice, herbal or nutritional medicine prescriptions given to the client.
InBody Composition Analyser - 5 mins
The InBody 570 machine measures and analyses an individual’s body composition in terms of water, fat, protein, muscle, bone mineral and much more. Testing and printed results are obtained in less than 2 minutes providing a comprehensive breakdown of how/ where you are holding weight. The scan also determines the weight of lean muscle mass in each limb to see if there is a postural imbalance to address. It reports your level of body fat and skeletal muscle mass/girth measurements so you can understand how your diet, lifestyle and training regime are inﬂuencing your overall body composition. Follow up takes place in a group workshop to aid in understanding the results and possible avenues to take to address each area.

A Personalised PT Program
To help you get the most out of your session with one of our trainers, please see all of the focus areas below.
Personalised PT Program Focus Areas
For guests wanting to improve heart/lung health and efﬁciency, this style of session is designed to safely extend the participants ability to perform physical work. Best summarised as a “huff and puff workout”, our trainers will use a variety of training apparatus and techniques to improve your aerobic efﬁciency.
Movement for Optimum Health & Ageing
With an emphasis on functional health, this style of session looks at both the muscular—skeletal system as well as the neuro-muscular system. Addressing age-related concerns, such as joint disorders, osteoporosis, balance, as well as physical strength capabilities, the focus is on integrating stability, strength, range of movement and cardiovascular modalities.
Strength & Resistance
Through the use of traditional machine-based apparatus, free weights, and body weight exercises along with current resistance training tools such as power bands, kettle bells or suspension trainers, this style of session is all about shaping up and tightening up. Learn the latest training techniques and tools that provide the best strength-based outcomes.
Flexibility & Mobility
At Elysia Wellness Retreat our trainers see this as one of the most under—rated components of physical health. At the foundation of much chronic pain and postural imbalance is a lack of range of movement in associated joints and/or underlying dominances within the body. The emphasis of this style of session is on alleviating stiffness, soreness, tightness and imbalances.
Water—based Training & Rehabilitation
Not just for the swimmers, this style of training has the unique feature of being non weight bearing as an advantage over other modalities. Taking the load off the joints frees up the rest of the body to extend itself. The inherent resistance of water to movement aids in the development of cardiovascular ﬁtness, strength, stability and range of movement in a supportive physical environment.
