Description

I invite you to join me on a wonderful 2-day sylvotherapy and spa retreat in the beautiful Vosges Mountains in France. Through direct contact with trees and nature, sylvotherapy will bring a deep inner calm into your life.

Constant pressure at work, long hard days and a every-day struggles bring a lot of stress into our lives. Sylvotherapy helps us manage different levels of stress and tension and takes us to a peaceful state of mind, improving our well-being.

Together with a forest bath, we recommend a spa treatment for all pathologies related to stress, like intestinal disorders, joint pain and generalized physical weakness, like burn-out or fibromyalgia.

During these unique forest baths and spa treatments, fully immersed in the heart of the preserved forests of the Massif des Vosges, you will find the  time to reconnect with yourself and rebalance your body and nervous system thoroughly. We will also enjoy a full digital disconnection during these days: television, computer, mobile phone and internet will be off for the duration of the stay.

In the morning, we will take a forest bath with adapted hikes and light physical exercises. The direct contact with the energy of plants and trees of the Vosges forest will help us energize our body and invigorate our spirit. The natural beauty, quietness and solitude of this beautiful location will take you back to your inner center and peace.

On the second day, we will enjoy a relaxing bath in traditional natural thermal waters, discovered by the Romans more than 2000 years ago. You will also have the option to enjoy an hydromassage bath or a great back massage, among other options.

Tant de bienfaits... Dame Nature nous protège et nous offre sa beauté. Eric nous guide et distille son savoir sur les Vosges et sa flore ; et les arbres diffusent leurs phytoncides! Tous nos sens sont en éveil! Le temps s'arrête! Le groupe est porteur, soutenant, bienveillant et drôle (Merci à chacun d'entre eux!). Un enchantement à s'offrir : cela fait un bien fou! (Et en plus, les Bleus ont gagné!)

Super week-end! Eric est un guide parfait! Il est passionné et c'est très intéressant de l'écouter parler des arbres, de la forêt et de ses bienfaits. La rando, en elle-même ne présente pas trop de difficulté, d'autant qu'Eric fait tout pour que le rythme de marche incite à observer et profiter du calme de la forêt.

Prendre le temps de regarder et d'écouter la Nature durant un week-end "bain de forêt". Ces instants ont été merveilleux et m'ont permis de me ressourcer. Merci Éric pour ton accompagnement durant cette belle promenade. Meilleurs souvenirs à l'équipe du 14 juillet 2018.

Mon enterrement de vie de jeune fille a été fantastique... J'ai adoré... Je n'aurais pas pu rêver mieux... Même dans mes rêves, je n'osais pas espérer cela. Eric a été trop sympa. Il nous a fait découvrir les Vosges, toutes les petites et les grandes choses de la nature, il a cuisiné à merveille à base de produits locaux, j'ai eu droit à un massage que je n'oublierai jamais (couchée dans la forêt, avec un rayon de soleil pour me réchauffer et une vue magnifique, toutes les copines assises autour)... Je crois qu'il a aussi du bien rigoler... En tout cas, on est toutes rentrées super enthousiastes, et je pense que c'était peut-être le premier week-end d'une longue série. On est déjà partantes pour refaire ce genre d'expérience dans un an.

Had an amaaaazing snowshoeing trip in Les Vosges with Eric on 18-19 Feb 2017. The whole experience was way beyond expectations. Every single aspect of the trip was just simply perfect - wouldn't change a single thing. Eric's knowledge of the region, its history, wild life, mountain life and technical expertise were great, really felt safe and well guided, plus Eric was really caring and checking out everyone in the group. Besides, group was fun and really interesting, we shared some very nice moments during the walk. We also had a chance to taste local food specialties, seated in the open air at a refuge, feet in the snow....Paradise! The region's landscapes are wonderful ; it was a fantastic two-day escape out of city life - definitely to be done again as soon as possible ! Thanks again Eric!

Superbe week-end de rando raquette avec un guide passionné, attentif aux autres, hyper compétent et amoureux de la nature et de ses bienfaits. Le week-end rando est également devenu un week-end gastronomique avec un pique-nique d'anthologie composé de produits locaux excellents. Le mot d'ordre de ce week-end: profitons de la vie et de la nature ! L'organisation du trek était également impeccable. Merci Éric pour ces purs moments de bonheur! JF

Regarder, admirer, observer, contempler, respirer, savourer la vie qui nous entoure devrait être ce qui nous anime à chaque instant. Si cela ne peut être le cas à chaque seconde, sachez le faire alors le temps d un week end, d un jour, d une heure.... Et qui de mieux pour vous accompagner dans cette démarche qu une personne passionnée par cette vie et cet amour du partage. Merci à toi Eric et à bientôt.
