Summer 2017. Obonjan Island, Croatia.
This summer, I spent 2 weeks as part of The Zen Den at Obonjan, doing the nail thing and enjoying what the island had to offer.
Already in it's second summer, Obonjan is set up for a 10 week long programme of wellness and music. There are never more than 500 guests on the island.
It's tiny. It's beautiful. It's a trip to make as active or as relaxing as you want.
The Zen Den is made up of therapists from around the world, each specialising in their field.
I tried a few treatments for myself :)
Jade concentrates on holistic and deep tissue massage therapy.
Enjoying a massage next to the sea, listening to the sound of waves and crickets... can't be bad. Experience her massage for yourself the next time you're in London minus the crickets.... Click here for Jade's website
Charlotte practices eastern medicine and offers acupuncture.
I tried this for the first time and loved it so much I kept going back. We had a thorough consultation before Charlotte came up with a treatment plan. 5 element acupuncture is the way to go. I'm Fire (Friends of mine don't seem to be surprised by this... :) Check out her instagram @acu_east
Shauna is a hypo-therapist, usually based in New York.
If you're ever lucky enough to go... book in with her! It was almost like a guided meditation that left me feeling floaty. It's great to try new things with an open mind and enjoy the experience. Afterwards, I spent time with myself by the harbour, watching the sun set, taking it all in. Therapy at its best. Check out her instagram @thewishcraft
All of this plus...
Afternoon dips in the crystal clear sea
Cocktails at the harbour
Live music in the forest...
Can't wait for next year :)
So until next summer comes around... find me on the 5th floor at my Berlin based studio <3
