TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM)
Acupuncture | Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine that treats patients with the insertion and manipulation of thin, solid needles in the body. Since its origins in Ancient China, acupuncture has been embedded in the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM. Its general theory is based on the premise that bodily functions are regulated by the flow of an energy-like entity called Qi (chi). Illness is caused by obstructed energy flow at certain points along the body’s meridians, or energy channels. Acupuncture therapy stimulates meridian flow and harmonizes the body’s energy to influence the health of both body and mind. It is very successful in treating neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, sciatica, hip pain, arthritis, sports injuries, anxiety, depression, insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine headaches, sinus problems, vertigo, asthma, acne, eczema, allergy, constipation, hypertension, menstrual and PMS problems, infertility, smoking addiction, alcohol dependence, detoxification, obesity and weight control…. to name a few. Francois, our resident acupuncture specialist, is always on hand to conduct individual health analyses and provide subsequent acupuncture treatments.
Or finger pressure therapy is a Japanese form of physiotherapy. The technique looks beyond specific pressure points, incorporating other methods such as stretching, breathing and rotating for a more whole-body approach to restoring energy balance, its roots are thousands of years old. The main concept behind shiatsu massage is that energy, Qu or Chi, circulates along channels or meridians in the body. When it flows freely, Chi brings fresh, positive yang energy while carrying away negative yin energy, keeping an individual physically, emotionally and spiritually well. It is believed that by manipulating pressure points along specific meridians and relaxing the body, practitioners of shiatsu can get energy back in balance and, therefore, treat numerous ailments.

Deep Tissue Treatment
Deep tissue treatment works by breaking down the adhesions of muscle, ligaments and tissue, so there is a better flow of blood and thus can alleviate the pain and restore normal movement. Deep Tissue massage is able to break up tissue from previous injuries, improve the blood flow so that nutrients and oxygen can nourish the tissue. Inflammation is caused by build up of toxins which block the blood flow. Being properly hydrated before your massage and drinking plenty of fluids after, is essential to a good treatment.Your muscles will feel sore immediately after the treatment which then goes away after a day. It is important to breathe deeply during the massage, to oxygenate the muscles. Do not plan any heavy activities after a treatment.

GUEST REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
Testimonials for Yoga, Detox & Wellness Retreats
Tessa O., the United Kingdom
If you’re looking for a complete break in beautiful surroundings, accompanied by very warm-hearted people, Navutu Dreams is the place for you. I spent a total of 7 days there and took part in the ‘Detox of the Mind’ programme, and Navutu Dreams became my refuge and my home for the entirety of my stay. From the first moment when my husband and I were greeted personally by Sarah, to the last when we said goodbye to the tuk-tuk driver who became my husband’s friend for the week, I felt cared for with genuine interest and attention. Many of the staff knew me by name and were always ready to help.The Wellness Programme itself was just what I had hoped it would be – a real tonic after busy times that helped me to explore and reconnect with what’s really important both to me and for me – guided and supported every step of the way by the lovely Louise, who I feel has now become a friend. Louise has a genuine gift for healing and is extremely knowledgeable in many areas of eastern philosophy, which apply to us all, and her approach is uniquely personal to her, which makes time spent with her all the more inviting to share. The 5-day programme consisted of group and personal yoga sessions, Pranayama meditation and energy healing, sound healing and a daily massage, not to mention the opportunity to talk and discuss whatever was pertinent to me at the time (without it turning into counselling).In summary, I can not express how grateful I feel to have been able to enjoy and learn from the time I spent at Navutu; if you feel able to arrive with your heart and mind open to all possibilities, I would highly recommend.
Angela G., The United KingdomI normally visit a yoga retreat in Thailand but I wanted to try something different this year so found Navutu online. When I arrived, I thought it would be ten days of yoga and spa treatments and some time to visit the temples nearby. What I got was something much deeper than that. Louise tailored my stay to suit me – we met on the first evening to discuss my wellness programme and it involved so much more than physical treatments and yoga. I have never done any holistic healing before but I opened my mind to the possibilities and what I got was incredible. Through breathing, meditation and yoga practice, as well as spiritual healing and using Louise’s expertise, I gained so much more than physical relaxation, I felt mentally relaxed too. Louise taught me some excellent practices that I have brought home to the UK to practice daily which is already helping me cope with the demands of everyday modern life. I would thoroughly recommend Navutu and particularly Louise’s wellness programmes.
Assia T., SingaporeI chose Navutu Dreams in Siem Reap for a yoga and wellness retreat. My expectations were fully met: from the friendly staff and beautiful grounds, to the clean room and delicious traditional food. I was most impressed with the yoga/ meditation teachers and spiritual advisors who led the yoga and wellness program. They were knowledgeable, personable and very helpful. Everything was well thought of and well organized. The resort’s traditional massage offerings are also exceptional. I would happily return for another visit to Navutu Dreams and architecturally breathtaking Siem Reap.
