Makes it pleasant 10/14/2010

I am not a writer and English is my second language so this will not be complete as I usually need time to write things up. I was somewhat skeptical, not about the colonic itself, but being a registered nurse, I was more concerned with sanitary practices than I was with the procedure. I must say that Robin displayed a great deal of knowledge with infection prevention and sanitation. As far as how I feel today, I really feel great, not just physically but mentally (psychologically). I feel energized and do not feel the inertia which I have been feeling for awhile. I do not have the constant anger which I seem to harbor and for the last week, I have not fought with my husband. Everything he says or does usually aggravates the living hell out of me and he is the same towards me – now he is most agreeable and more tolerable – that is what all that poison removed from our bodies did. Removed the poison from our heads also. As far as the procedure – Robin makes it pleasant so it is not as bad as having an enema. The olive oil and lemon juice is an experience that I would not want to repeat – Yuk! However, the cleansing effect was indescribably mind and body lifting. The food – even the liquid ones were delicious. The solid food I tasted today – I can learn to eat forever. Thank you, Robin, and all your staff. I feel great but I know I have many other body problems to treat and I will soon return. more

Expertise and kindness 10/8/2010

Thank you for a very splendid week. All kinds of portals are open! I came here with diagnosed gallbladder problems and recommended surgery, and chose to try your flush before submitting to the knife. Your process met and exceeded my expectations – to dump my stones, do good for other organs, and participate in a health-inducing experience rather than surrender to unconsciously handing over body parts. Thank you for much more than this – to learn about and experience live food, vastly enjoy my fellow guests, delight in the wisdom and humor of Robin, and benefit from all your expertise and kindness. more

Wonderful experience 10/6/2010

Coming to the Annapurna was like coming home--upon entering I was part of the family. A wise family who gently shared their wisdom and then respected me enough to allow me time to process it. All the services were deep-long and thorough. I had never had colon hydrotherapy before. Robin made me completely relaxed and immediately I felt the benefits flowing into me (excuse the pun). I already know this will become my seasonal retreat for rest and rejuvenation. I take home lots of tips to bring healing into my life, and I know because of my stay here my life will be a healthier one. Thank you, Robin, Judy and Claire--the food, environment, services and fun here have been a wonderful experience all around. more

Have a loving heart 10/1/2010

Thanksgiving has passed and I am preparing to do another gallbladder cleanse before company begins to arrive again. I want to express my sincere thanks to you and your staff for the great kindness, encouragement and expertise you showed me during my first cleanse. You have a loving heart, Robin, and it was very easy to see that fame and fortune is not your primary motivation. Thank you for working me into your schedule and being willing to give me a chance long distance. You should have seen those beautiful gallstones! May you be blessed by God for your passion for others. more

Nourish and heal 9/27/2010

I arrived at the Annapurna on a Sunday afternoon - exhausted and emotionally drained. I did not really know what to expect, since my schedule leading up to this moment had been so frenetic and stressful that I did not even have the time to research and schedule my own healing retreat! The arrangements were made by my husband, John, who found the Annapurna on the internet and talked with Robin on the phone. "She is going to help you," he said. "Let her." After six consecutive days of healing, embraced in the loving and kind arms of Robin and Ciela, and with the camaraderie and support of the other residents of the household - some of whom were going through the same process - I now feel like the self I used to be before the stress of the past year. The colon hydrotherapy and the gallbladder flush were difficult, but worth it. My body feels younger, stronger and healthier, and my mind infinitely clearer. Exposure to a week of live, organic, fresh food was a reminder of why we put food in our body in the first place - to nourish and heal us. more

Excellent new dietary habits 9/22/2010

I wanted to let you know that things have been going well since my visits to the Annapurna. Some of the many benefits noticed since enjoying your highly skilled and individualized attention include improved clarity of vision, relief from dry eyes, a more supple and flexible lower back region, more open and relaxed breathing, and greater energy level. Experiencing your ability to restore the body to its natural, healthful state where self-healing is able to occur was invaluable. I have also incorporated excellent new dietary habits and greater self awareness into my daily routines as a result of my stay. Best of luck to you and your team. more

Amazing change. 9/20/2010

I came to the Annapurna Center for Self-Healing with my wife, to give her "support" while she was getting a gallbladder cleanse ("support" meaning I'd hold her hand and encourage her, maybe do some of the yoga stuff with her, but mostly stay in our room and catch up on work). But Annapurna's Director, Robin, convinced me (over my intense misgivings) that it would be better - no essential - for me to participate fully with Patti. And she was right. (She always is.) The experience brought us closer and deepened our relationship. And those words are completely inadequate to express what happened; only those who have experienced it can know. An unexpected side-effect was the amazing change in my own health. I am literally, a new man. Just as the Center's program produced better communication on many levels, with my wife, it also resulted in better comunication between me and my body - an awareness I'd never had before of just what my body is trying to tell me. more

what a success 9/16/2010

I discovered her Annapurna Center through a friend and came for some colonics with an eye towards a possible gall bladder flush. Whooooooee! The colonics alone are worth the price of admission. What a joy it is to watch years and years of accumulated and toxic buildup and parasites get washed out of your life for good. I decided to make changes in my travel plans and stay the full week and try the gall bladder flush. It was the best decision I've made in a long time. A person doing this therapy needs to have a certain amount of dedication, because the process can be a little uncomfortable and tiring as things get loosened up inside. I stuck with Robin, though, as she ushered me through the ins and outs of it rather like a mother hen. And what a success it was. We watched as stones, stones, stones and more stones traveled down the pipe and out. The actual release brought this dry eyed guy to tears as I realized the sorrow of having carried them for so long with all their harmful effects, and the joy of release and cleanliness inside. more

truly nurtured 9/9/2010

I am so thankful for the privilege of getting to know you and participate in a five-day cleanse at the Annapurna. I came in feeling good and left feeling great! I felt so cared for and nurtured by all of you during the process. We really appreciated the late night delivery of ginger tea to our room, was that ever good. more

healing, and Indeed detoxifying 9/2/2010

I found my stay there healing and, indeed, detoxifying. The food was fabulous, the staff solicitous and the additional treatments (massage, colonics, sauna) were helpful in assisting my system to carry out the natural cleansing that occurs with a raw-food liquid diet. more

continue the cleansing process 8/24/2010

I need no more encouragement than this to continue the cleansing process at Annapurna. I can also see no reason to go back to eating cooked food. Not only do I feel it has no nourishment, but it is toxic to my body. Thank you all at Annapurna for helping me to improve the quality of my life. more

tremendously improved 8/24/2010

I have been totally amazed at the improvement in my symptoms. My fatigue issues have greatly reduced. The numbness in my legs has totally gone away. The vision in my left eye is a little better – but amazingly the vision in my right eye is tremendously improved. I can almost read with it. It is almost as if layers are being removed from the eye that previously blocked my sight. more

positive result 8/20/2010

I came to Annapurna in support of my partner and went through the gallbladder flush. I feel good – the flush is hard work for a positive result. Thank you for your kindness and support. more

Thanks for all your help 8/17/2010

I want to thank you for encouraging my husband and me to do the two week "Life Foods" fast. Within the first three days on the fast our bodies started cleansing. The food was delicious and satisfying. We enjoyed learning and doing the yoga asanas you taught us. We both feel better and more confident about our self care to prevent colds and flu in the future. I love the new feeling of soundness. Thanks for all your help and encouragement. more

I feel Great 8/17/2010

For anyone truly interested in their quality of life and excellent health, and in contributing this wonderful energy to the rest of the world, this is the place to be. Robin, thank you so very much for these wonderful two days. I feel great and am excited that I now have a real sanctuary to return to for re-vitalization, re-awakening. We could not have found a better place to regain our complete sense of our health, romance (our goal), and surprising companionship with you and your talented staff. more

Making it an annual routine 8/13/2010

I found my experience at the Annapurna to be profound. I made the decision to do the week long flush because I had been under an extreme amount of stress over the past few years and was feeling depleted of energy and enthusiasm. I know that stress can create toxins that are stored in the body. But I had no idea the results I would find. In five days I felt as if I had regained the energy I had twenty years ago. I felt calm and optimistic. I had been concerned about not having energy during the process of the flush. As I was still needing to be working throughout the week I anticipated that I would be more tired than usual, but I was delighted at the fact that I had plenty of energy during the whole week. I plan on making it an annual routine, as I feel it will add to my overall health and well being tremendously. more

wow 8/13/2010

Ever since I completed the liver-gall bladder cleanse at the Annapurna Inn, I've been waiting to hear back from my allopathic primary care provider on how this process had affected his view of my health. I finally received his results today. For months he had been trying to convince me to take medications to lower these number. I resisted, hoping to find an alternative. I'm glad I waited. Before the cleanse, my blood pressure was 145/96 and my LDL cholesterol was 168. As a result of the colonics and liver-gall bladder cleanse, my blood pressure is now 120/83 and my LDL cholesterol is 130. My primary care physician still doesn't understand how this was possible, especially in such a short time, but the numbers don't lie. All he could do was scratch his head. more

Service is supurb 8/9/2010

We loved our stay: This is a very wonderful Spa and healing retreat. I reccomend this to everyone. Service is supurb. The grounds are lovely. I really ejoy the view. more

  • The Scene
    What was once a vegan B&B has evolved into a day spa for people who are committed to a healthy lifestyle. This Victorian home was built by a man named Captain Seawell, and there are still six rooms available. But the emphasis these days is on therapy and education, not breakfast and accommodation.

    The Details
    Guests who stay here come for Annapurna's "healing retreats." Treatments on offer range from aromatherapy and therapeutic massage to reflexology, gall bladder flushes and colon hydrotherapy. Guests can stay in a private room with its own bath or a shared room with a shared bathroom. All rooms are cleaned using ecologically sound products and a special water vacuum cleaner intended to remove allergens from the air. A relaxing soak takes on new meaning in the meditation tub. Additional treats include a dry sauna, solarium, Turkish steam bath, yoga room and massage studio.
