Nuad Bo-Rarn is authentic northern style rejuvenating Thai massage, a dynamic, therapeutic and relaxing holistic massage combining stretching, acupressure and touch. The healing power of Thai massage is rooted in tradition and goes back 2500 years to the time of Budda. Every part of the body is given full attention. By working in a variety of positions, on acupressure points and ‘sen’ energy lines, those who suffer from knee and ancle pain, frozen shoulder and other ailments will benefit from the calming and relaxing Nuad Bo-Rarn massage workshop. Others will find the deeply therapeutic massage sessions rejuvenating, calming and a gentle release from the pressures of everyday life.
Daniel, your workshop host trained in Chang Mai under one of Thailand’s most recognised masters, Chongkhol Settakorn. Find out more on his website.
Le Prieuré is a stunning 13th/14th century fortified house in the tiny rural hamlet of Pressigny, about 30 minutes from Poitiers airport. The stone house sits in walled gardens and has six bedrooms in the main house and two in La Tour, a newer 15th century addition!
Arrive at le Prieuré on Friday night. Enjoy a delicious, healthy dinner cooked by your hostess or our renowned chef with your fellow participants and then relax around the firepit with a drink in the candlelit walled garden, enjoying the remarkably clear skies and the sight of the white owls circling the church and garden.
Your bed awaits! Crisp cotton sheets in a lovely bedroom overlooking the garden in this stunning 14th century Priory. With a choice of four poster beds, half testers and silk draped beds, the cosy mattress toppers, wooden shutters and the gentle ambience in this quiet, rural village all help to create the perfect ambience for a perfect night’s sleep.
