Menopause is a natural phenomenon that every woman experiences as she ages. It is a time of significant hormonal and social changes that affect not only physical health, but also the emotional well-being of a woman. Wellness destination The Farm at San Benito has taken a holistic approach to menopausal health with a new range of programmes and services that cater to the specific needs of peri/menopausal, menopausal, and post-menopausal women.
The programme is designed to help women achieve optimal health and well-being by addressing the underlying causes of health issues. The program is conducted by internationally-trained integrative doctors supported by licensed health professionals.
The programme includes vegan meals that are low glycemic yet high in nutrients, helping to boost the body’s natural defences, and nutritional juices. A consultation with the property’s nutritionist aims to assess the individual’s food intake and lifestyle history in order to formulate a sustainable meal plan that suits her individual needs.
In addition, the retreat includes a holistic health consultation, which explores the individual’s state of well-being, while cellular health screening fosters a deeper appreciation of the working of the body at a cellular level. This is an educational experience that uses one’s blood as seen live under a dark field microscope to give a glimpse of what’s happening inside the body. Other treatments include a vital test for heavy metals, minerals and vitamins; a 60-minute Personalised Kidney Cleansing; a 30-minute Liver Compress; a 45-minute Empress Facial; a 60-minute Acupuncture Session; and a 30-minute Dolphin Neurostim. The retreat also includes a 90-minute personalized Hilot Lakambini, a traditional Filipino massage that helps to restore balance and harmony to the body.
