Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of applying pressure by creating a vacuum on the skin to dispel stagnant blood and lymph nodes, thereby improving Qi flow. Cupping is commonly used to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis. Cupping also is used on the back, neck, shoulder and for other musculoskeletal conditions. Cupping therapy is also used to open the conduits in the body through which energy flows, called meridians. There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the length of the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the best way of opening those meridians. Cupping aids tissues to release toxins, activates the skin and lymphatic system, clears colon blockages and stretch marks, and activates and clears veins, arteries and capillaries. Navutu’s T.C.M. specialist administers all procedures after a thorough evaluation/consultation.
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.
It is a transformational breath work practice, focusing on activating a full diaphragmatic breath to awakem the sacred heart and realign all bodies. The practice reconnects the individual with their inner selves. By consciously breathing in joy, light, and bliss, painful memories and negative beliefs are released and integrated at the cellular and subconscious levels. This unique treatment – that can last up to 2.5 hours – will leave a lasting feeling of interconnectedness and reconnection.
It is an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound, specifically Crystal and Tibetan bowls to help reduce stress, uplift consciousness and create a sense of deep peace.
|Sound Bath Healing||60 mins||$65.00++|
It is a form of energy work using pranic healing that helps to increase, control and direct the universal life force or prana to give the client a more balanced and overall sense of well-being.

|Chakra Balancing Session||60 mins||$65.00++|
Reiki is a subtle energy healing system developed in Japan utilizing a quiet, direct touch of your body to channel Qi. This vital energy is channeled to support the body’s natural ability to heal.

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.
I 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.
I 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.
