Wellness for Women
Using Chinese Reflexology

Friday June 22nd – Monday June 25th or
Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th July

Chateau Ardilleux, France

Cristal-Arôme Wellness Workshops & Retreats invites you to Chateau Ardilleux in the Poitou-Charentes region of France to enjoy a weekend of rest, relaxation, gourmet dining & the opportunity to discover & use the healing power of Chinese Reflexology to improve your health & well-being.  


Chinese reflexology is a form of foot massage based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine which improves the flow of energy in the body & so brings the body back into balance.  In doing so a variety of symptoms can be alleviated, & health & well-being is optimised.  


During this Wellness for Women using Chinese Reflexology weekend retreat you will learn a simple 10 minute foot massage routine specially devised for women, & for their personal use, to alleviate specific symptoms & health issues that can affect women of all ages.


Our team of professional therapists will be on hand to offer you holistic treatments of your choice during the weekend - Indian head massage, Aromatherapy massage, Swedish massage, reflexology & crystal therapy treatments. And of course there will be free time to spend as you wish – maybe take a dip in the heated pool, a leisurely walk in the beautiful parkland gardens of the Chateau, a bicycle ride around some local country lanes or just bask in the Summer sunshine – the choice is yours!  


And of course chef, chocolatier & owner Corinne who has a great passion for cooking, will be serving mouth-watering meals throughout the weekend made from fresh produce from her kitchen garden & local producers. You’ll also be able to sample & purchase her to-die-for handmade chocolates!
