A Bespoke Recovery Retreat
Britain’s leading transformational retreat provider, Fiona Arrigo of The Arrigo Programme, announces the launch of The Arrigo ‘Long COVID’ Healing Programme, based on the Biodynamic principles of care and restoring health.
Created in response to the recent demand from those struggling with the insidious after-effects of COVID-19, where most show a variety of symptoms which have not yet responded to treatment, this bespoke programme allows individuals the time and space to drop into deep rest, recuperate and be nurtured. It helps build resilience and inner strength and to process feelings and recover.
The 7, 14 or 21-day highly personalised, one-on-one recovery programme includes a range of elements from psychological support and immune system balancing to breath and lung strengthening techniques. All treatments are designed to remove stress, tension and unresolved issues by identifying and understanding the underlying causes of stress and trauma to encourage healing.
Each treatment protocol is carefully selected by world-renowned and much-loved psychotherapist Fiona Arrigo, who is profoundly intuitive. Specific therapeutic modalities may include:
- Tibetan Pulsing
- Energy Work
- Trauma Release Work (TRE)
- Yin Yoga
- Medical Herbalism
- Infrared sauna treatments
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Meditation and Breathwork
A core part of the process is Biodynamic Medicine (BM) with the Clinical Director at The Arrigo Programme - Mary Molloy. This enables deep work with trauma through the gut, heart and brain. BM is a mind-body, non-pharmaceutical therapeutic approach, which includes biodynamic psychology and psychotherapy to assist with healing from the effects of trauma.
In conjunction, the team work in partnership with Bodhimaya - led by founder Cornelius O’Shaughnessy – to provide a pioneering programme for mind and body rejuvenation: testing and addressing potential imbalances using a Functional Medicine approach to optimise immune function and recovery.
Prior to the residential programme, individuals undergo an extensive medical and an initial series of consultations in London, which are curated for each participant by Fiona. These include: Functional Medicine tests with Bodhimaya or Dr Lucie Wilk, expert Nutrition and Naturopathy with Tea Novo, Homeopathy assessment and clinical psychotherapy with 5tconsulting ltd – Gaylin Tudhope or psychiatric assessment with London Psychiatry Clinic – Dr Alberto Perusa, Dr Nagore Benito and Dr Srinivas Lanka.
Individual retreats take place in your own self-contained and private country accommodation in rural Somerset.
The Arrigo ‘Long COVID’ Healing Programme starts at £2,500 per day (minimum 7 day stay). The recommended duration for the residential Arrigo ‘Long COVID’ Healing Programme is two weeks with the options of 7, 14 or 21-day programmes.
