SPAIN FASTING DETOX RETREATS
Designed to Cleanse Your Body, Clear Your Mind, and Create Your Lifestyle.
We’re heading to Spain this summer!
Palma de Mallorca | June 8-15, July 6-13, August 3-10
The stresses of modern day living, unhealthy diets, environmental toxicity overburdening of chemicals in your system, unprocessed emotions and trauma, overwhelmed and over scheduled with little or no self care can cause major imbalances within your body, mind and spirit leading to a whole variety of symptoms and conditions that effect your quality of life.
Our Spain fasting detox retreats are a way of loving, respecting and appreciating your body by assisting it into a balanced state where it is supported to do what it is naturally designed to do – which is heal itself! This not only affects your physical body but your ‘whole self’ and therefore becomes a fantastic tool for deeply transforming the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of your health as well.
“The vitality, clarity, freedom and joy you feel after a fasting detox is simply unparalleled to anything else I have experienced during my time in the health and wellness industry. It has changed my life beyond what I could ever have imagined. During the last 8 years it has been an honour and a privilege to witness 1000’s of people transforming their own state of health and wellbeing during this retreat offering and I feel incredibly lucky I get to share this space with exceptional human beings. If you are ready and truly wanting to feel better in every way possible, to stand in your fullest potential, then come to Mallorca and let my team and I guide you back to radiance”

EXAMPLE DAILY RETREAT SCHEDULE
Subject to change.
Our Spain fasting detox retreats are a way of loving, respecting and appreciating your body by assisting it into a balanced state where it is supported to do what it is naturally designed to do – which is heal itself!
Guests arrive in the afternoon, with personal intake consultations starting from approx. 2pm onwards. After guests have settled into their rooms we have a group retreat orientation in the afternoon where guests connect and retreat hosts deliver all that encompasses the retreat experience ahead.
We start the day with a gentle yoga class, and then an education workshop on the digestive system. A guided mediation class in the afternoon slows guests down further before we show an informative documentary in the evening. Day two is about slowing the body down and getting familiar with the daily detox process.
We typically begin day three with a light mat class, exploring and specifically working with the organs. After some private sessions and massages we finish the day with an educational doco and/or an open discussion on to uncover the real underlying reasons you have found yourself on retreat. Another blissful day in detox land
The day starts with another yoga class and then a great Nutrition workshop in the middle of the day. Lots of private sessions typically happening, as we go deeper into your personal process – and for those without private sessions there is plenty of time to relax with a book poolside in the afternoon, before been guided into a deeper relaxation during the evening guided meditation.
The morning exercise class is typically about getting back into your bodies and nature, with an embodied and conscious walk. Today we’ll head off site to explore the island and a signature spa experience to support the detox process! We’ll return in the afternoon to some ‘homework’ and reflection for tomorrow’s workshop.
Yoga kicks off the day and then we roll straight into a Understanding Your Emotions workshop – focusing on your self-awareness and all that is the unique you. A down day for guests to reflect on the process, continue with private session work, and check in that we are on track with what you set out to achieve.
Another deeper yoga class this morning, as the body increases in flexibility and function from previous classes and the detox experience. Then we have a “post-retreat” workshop where we explore Self-care and personal support networks, and always a great chance for food Q&A and practical recipe ideas for post-retreat eating! The afternoon is spent preparing the body for the liver flush drink in the evening and a fire ceremony to close the detox process.
Today is all about celebrating the experience with breaking-fast! We will break-fast at around 8:30am giving the group a chance to reflect and share their experience before finishing the retreat experience and checking out by 10am.
Son Sion retreat finca sits on a vast piece of private land with an expansive traditional Mediterranean garden, a luxurious pool; an incredible yoga sala; and beautifully finished bedrooms. The exquisite setting just outside the little picturesque Spanish village of Porreres sets the perfect scene for a transformational personal health and healing journey.

“This is the place to go if you want to do a serious results driven [program]. They have thought of everything and had the skill and compassion to address everything. This has been a huge turning point and awareness and I am so grateful. You are A++.”
“The Natural Instinct Healing team are 100% committed to making an impact and supporting their clients to live to their full potential! They are an amazing group of health professionals with a true passion for creating healthy lifestyles.”
“When I came to the retreat I was feeling completely burnt out, both physically and emotionally. I got to a point where I thought to myself, I can’t go on like this!! After completing the 7 day fast I can honestly say I feel 110% better. I have my old energy back, I am excited to get back to work and get back into my fitness and I have new goals to work towards. I also feel so much clearer in my mind and have acquired a heap of new skills and knowledge to help me through whatever lies ahead.”
“I came here on the brink of breakdown searching for breakthrough without the tools to get there. I was lost in my head, overwhelmed with fear and dread and out of touch with my feelings and spirit. I was welcomed like a friend had arrived, nurtured, and fed well. Then the work began and through the process, I re-found myself. By fasting, guided meditation, one on one sessions, classes, I found clarity, presence and a plan. I feel like I’ve been given a clean slate to start again with all the support I need to thrive. I am forever grateful.”

Here you will find our most commonly asked questions – just click on the “+” sign to expand the answers. Please let us know if your query has not been answered below, and we will happily respond to your specific requests.
1. Are the retreats supervised by qualified health professionals?
Yes. We provide constant support to our clients and have Western qualified retreat hosts, qualified practitioners in Natural Medicine, Naturopathy and Nutrition; who work closely with our clients to achieve their personal goals. Our team have over 15 years combined experience specifically working with fasting and detox clients, and extensive additional experience offering a diverse range of natural health modalities to our clients throughout our retreats.
2. I'm on medication(s), can I still join a detox program?
If joining our fasting detox program we will need to know specific details around what medication and dosage, for what condition, so as to ensure our program will not be contraindicative to your healing journey. Rarely have one of our programs not been suitable for a client based on their medication intake. During your initial intake on day one of the program, one of our qualified Naturopaths assess your overall health history and discuss with you what time of day will be best for you to continue taking your medication. You will not be asked to stop taking your medication.
The absorption of most medications through the liver is roughly 2-4 hours. It can take longer (4-8 hours) depending on the drug and its route of absorption – in these instances your medication will need to be taken at night at 8-9pm (approx. 4 hours after your last detox-bentonite clay shake). Then it has 8-10 hours of absorption throughout the night.
Our Naturopaths can prescribe additional system support (herbal, homeopathic, etc) that will support you during the detox. We have a variety of serotonergic herbs that will enhance and support the absorption and pharmacodynamics certain medications. Typical medications will be absorbed provided there is a 2-4 hour ‘time window’ away from the detox-bentonite clay shakes. This question is asked a lot and is always a big concern for guests that are taking a few different medications, so we understand your concerns.
The colonics and enemas are only able to remove what is in the colon. By the time a medication has been processed by the liver, the renal system and the stomach, it is only the excipients of the tablet left in the colon to be removed. Excipients are the fillers, binders, chemicals and powders that make up the tablet. The active medication is already absorbed and the body excretes the residue of the tablet. As always the details outlined above are our opinion based on experience, and no substitute for professional advice from your local doctor, health professional, etc.
3. I have a specific condition and/or disease. How do I know if a retreat will be suitable for me?
Please ensure you mention your condition and/or disease in as much detail as possible within your initial enquiry to us. We will respond with questions to clarify the status, severity, and nature of the condition. From there we can provide you with our qualified health opinion.
4. Do you treat guests with a history of substance abuse / addictions?
People from all walks of life join us, for all different reasons – but please note we are not a ‘substance’ detox centre for guests with addictions and a history of substance abuse e.g. alcohol, amphetamines, heroin, marijuana, etc. We will be happy to recommend alternative options for these guests – one which is particularly well regarded in Bali. If you have been clean (absolutely no use of any substances aside from tobacco) for an extended period (12+ months) and would like to discuss joining us as a further extension of your cleansing journey please do so. We just need to check in with you around your sobriety and a couple of unique questions so as to ensure we can deliver on our promise of supporting you through a transformative process.
5. When should I arrive to Mallorca for my retreat?
For guests arriving by air, we recommend planning for a flight arriving at Palma de Mallorca airport by 1pm. Guests hoping to carpool with a taxi could then possibly leave together from the airport around 1:30pm, so as to keep your expenses to a minimum. Closer to the retreat start date we will reach out to confirm this for those interested. Transfers to Son Sion are guests’ responsibility.
FINAL DAY: On Saturday 15th of June guests will ‘break’ the fast (woohoo!) at approx. 8:30am, finishing everything up by approx. 9:30am and checking out prior to 10am. So for guests flying out on the 15th we recommend flights no earlier than 12pm for European flights (and 1pm for international flights).
GUESTS DRIVING: For guests arriving by car the Son Sion is approx. 30 minutes from the airport, and 2km outside of Porreres. Closer to the start date we will share specific directions to Son Sion.
6. What should I bring to Mallorca?
Please note we encourage you to purchase all non-chemical products for your retreat. This can include facial and hair care products, toothpaste, etc.
Please also find below a list of things we recommend to bring along:
- Swim wear for pool and/or beach excursion
- Beach towel
