Amchara – The Spa to help you ‘change for good’

Some say that finding paradise in Europe is basically impossible but having heard of a little place of pure tranquility and goodness we are inclined to disagree.

Amchara have been supporting people’s wellbeing since 2010 with their unique functional health approach, designed to restore vitality and wellness to those seeking, ‘Change For Good’.

Rather than just popping off for a half hour massage as a treat, Amchara is more a place to go and reprogram, with experts on hand to help you get to the bottom of whatever is going on.

From the stunning palm tree lined limestone sanctuary, in the tranquil and sun bathed Mediterranean island of Gozo, you can embark on a tailor-made detox programme that combines functional medicine practices with, gentle exercise and education to transform your mind and body and in all likelihood, by the end, your soul.

It isn’t always easy to keep your head above water. We have work, family and emotional commitments and quite often, we put ourselves to the side. Amchara is about refocusing on YOU and working out what works best for your individual body and mind. It is ok to every now and then put yourself in pole position.

Whether it is quiet rest and relaxation that you’re after, or you want some help to re-programme unhealthy eating habits or to tackle a more serious health issue, Amchara’s expert and highly experienced health team are on hand to carefully and confidentially consult and guide you through your functional health detox journey.

At the core of Amchara’s functional health approach is a 3 stage process involving elimination, replenishment and education. Amchara provides food sensitivity blood tests and other functional medicine tests as well as colonic irrigation to help identify and support underlying issues. By conducting a thorough health screening with a qualified naturopath, Amchara creates personalised plans that meet your specific requirements – there is no one size fits all policy here.

Programmes can include juice fasting, raw food meals, soups, Paleolithic food or a combination of all four if that is what best suits the individual. This isn’t about ‘weight-loss’ but about working out how to be the healthiest you.

Everyone has their own health questionnaire screened by a medical doctor before they arrive to ensure best health outcomes.

The medical and naturopathic team carry a wealth of expertise and healthcare knowledge creating a safe and nurturing environment to rebalance your body and mind and get you on the right path to optimal health and wellbeing.

There is a lot to do at Amchara, so when you aren’t sipping on a fresh organic juice by the chlorine-free pool, reading in the herb garden or meditating in the state of the art yoga shala, you can partake in the array of optional facilities and activities on offer including: massage treatments, guided walks, sightseeing excursions, bicycle rides, swimming, yoga, meditation, infrared sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, nutritional and health talks and raw food cooking demonstrations. It can basically be as active or as relaxing as you want.

The magical and charming island of Gozo, is one of the safest, most peaceful and healing places to retreat to in Europe. People have been worshiping at the ancient temple of Ggantija for over 5500 years for the renewal and restoration of the soul. So you’re recharging in one of the most gorgeous places possible.

It is only a 3 hour flight from the UK and the perfect location to rest, recharge and instigate sustainable positive changes that will continue to improve your quality of life long after you fly home.
