“I felt like an entire team was involved in my overall health. I didn’t have to repeat aspects of my life. Each staff member generally knew my profile and story, which allowed them to more deeply engage with my health.”
“Pure Rejuvenation gave me space to rejuvenate and calm down. I also got some wonderful take home practices that I hope to do my whole life.”
“Ayurvedic approaches are not new to me, but the Pure Rejuv retreat has refocused me. My necessary physical and emotional routines have been jumpstarted.”
“The massage was one of the best I’ve ever had, and I’ve been getting massages for over 30 years. I felt – and still feel – wonderful after the massage. She addressed my specific needs, and was therapeutic, relaxing, and wonderful.”
