"Celebrating Natural Wellness"

We invite you, our guest, to hide away at TanahTara ...
soak in the solitude and tranquility of this serene natural haven,
allow yourself to reconnect with nature and
fully nurture the well-being of your mind, body and spirit ...

with Forest Bathing/'Shinrin-Yoku' – where you walk into a forest, breathe deeply and open all your senses. Then hug the trees.
The Japanese healing practice of shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) is not only relaxing, it’s restorative, with a host of benefits that include a boosted immune system, improved mood, lowered blood pressure and reduced stress ...

to enjoying Waterfalls, Hot Springs, Indigenous Herbal Treatments, Fresh Juice Bars ...

Besides Nature, one of our Wellness Resources is Terry - the originator of Terry Touch.

A muscle restoration therapy perfected through giving thousands of treatments.
When we strain and injure ourselves, we ignore and over-ride the 'factory settings' we were born with that dictate correct postural, growth and muscular functions.
This leads to back, neck and joint pain.
Pain is also a result of misusing our bodies, mainly through bad posture, but also from the twists and strains we suffer as part of normal living.
Using just one finger, Terry restores muscles to their 'original settings' to give safe, gentle relief from pain.
This allows the body to heal itself.
Massage is not a part of the treatment. There is no manipulation, cracking or crunching.
Terry uses a range of other natural hands-on therapies as required.
He was also trained in Dorn Therapy by Barbara Simon, who studied under Dieter Dorn in Germany.
Terry gives treatments, introductory classes and workshops in a number of countries.
