About

Achievable. Practical. Sustainable.

Glastonbury Tor is considered the Heart Chakra of the world and draws those seeking healing and enlightenment from all corners of the globe. The closest retreat to the Tor itself, Torside Health & Wellness offers guests a unique and unparalleled location to rejuvenate and focus on their health and wellness in this luxurious and uplifting environment.   

Torside's south-facing grounds range from formal borders to wildlife ponds, woodland and kitchen gardens. The diversity of the gardens bring many aspects of interest throughout each season and offer visitors the chance to surround themselves with the healing strength of nature all year round.  

The Retreat is tailored to a single visitor in order to provide the most tranquil experience and the most personal, bespoke care.  We offer in-depth health analysis to design a protocol in line with your health goals. A broad spectrum of treatments are available to you on site and a wellness plan will be developed for you going forward. Guests will leave revived, positive and empowered with a clear understanding of their health and wellness requirements, having begun their journey to better health and vitality. It is a place for those eager to embark on their path to better health and willing to dedicate themselves to that task. The aim is to empower you with understanding and give you the tools to better manage your health and wellness practically and permanently in the most beneficial way to you. The team at Torside recognise that embarking on your journey to better health is not always easy and are here to support and guide you. This is an ideal retreat for those who have struggled to find solutions to on-going health concerns and would like to learn more about how to help themselves to thrive again in a natural and achievable way. This is also a retreat for those interested in natural and holistic therapies but keen to apply them in a pragmatic way.  

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Identify. Understand. Empower. 

At Torside Health & Wellness we believe that your health is as individual to you as you are. We treat holistically, that is to say we treat you as a whole. Because of this, we address all of your symptoms and trace them all back to the root cause. Once that is identified, the path to healing can begin. This philosophy means that your experience at the retreat will be personalised to you, taking into account not only your health but also your lifestyle, diet, personality, trauma history and so on. Director Pia Barratt likes to get to know her clients well and will have an in depth discussion with you in order to ensure the most beneficial programme is developed for you. 

 

Example Programme

The Cleanse

Health issues very often arise from a build up of toxicity in the body. Regular cleansing is essential for health and body maintenance. The foundation of all of our programmes is a cleanse protocol. We tailor the cleanse to your needs so that you get the most from your detox as well as the right support and guidance. We use Kinesiology and Nutritional Assessments to advise what is best for you. All cleanses are assisted with colon hydrotherapy, massage, saunas, rebounding and hot/cold therapy. Ice baths are also available.  

We build packages around our cleanse protocols to address your health needs. In this way we can address many issues including the following:

Digestive Health (addressing intolerances and gut balance)

Detoxification (liver and bowel focus)

Emotional Wellbeing (anxiety and depression management)

Hormone Rebalancing (including fertility, menopause)

Reset and Revive (addressing stress and energy levels)

Strength & Fitness (for those wishing to achieve better results)

Weight Loss (practical and long-lasting solutions)

Trauma and Grief Recovery (releasing damaging emotions from the physical body and mind)
