Earth Energies Sanctuary in New Zealand is a wellness retreat designed to bring about balance of body, mind and soul, set within 200 acres of stunning natural landscape, ideal for seclusion, relaxation and experiencing nature. The sanctuary features a secluded, private, 2-bedroom cabin where guests can enjoy spectacular, awe-inspiring 360-degree views.
The Earth Energies Sanctuary is located on a 200-acre farm in New Zealand
During their stay, guests can be assured of total privacy and seclusion, as the nearest residence is more than 800 meters away from the cabin. Earth Energies offers self-catered or chef-prepared meals, as well as access to deep relaxation therapies that help release stress and anxiety and induce better sleep.
The Earth Energies offers a powerful combination of deep relaxation therapies designed to bring clients to an alpha or even deeper theta brainwave state, thus restoring balance essential for optimum relaxation, creativity, insight, and mindfulness.
