The purpose of our retreats is to create a personalized experience that helps people embrace our holistic approach. 

Over a few days, you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals, where we will explore and apply practical strategies to cope with chronic pain (such as physical discomfort, emotional stress, anxiety, and more).

This experience is designed as a safe space away from home.

Once you return, you will have gained enough practice and experience to continue making the necessary changes we have worked on together.

We believe that guidance and personal growth are powerful tools that can bring about meaningful change when utilized effectively.

Our Happy Clients!


Julie is the best massage therapist on the planet!! I’ve had massages on a regular basis for 30 years and Julie is hands down my favorite therapist of all time.



Cardiff, CA


My journey through chronic pain (emotional and physical) has been long and tedious. Philippe was able to help me change. From the way I was thinking to the way I was moving.



Carlsbad, CA


When Philippe stroked the Tibetan bowl, my mind calmed down right away. I was simply following the sound. This was the only presence in my mind at that time.

Chronic Pain Coaching

Philippe's primary objective is to assist individuals in managing pain using a combination of hands-on therapy, self-care strategies, body awareness, and mindfulness techniques.

Having extensively studied both Western and Eastern methodologies, Philippe brings a holistic approach to his practice. His key therapeutic tools include Integrative Massage, Myofascial Release, Structural Integration (informed by Rolfing principles), Orthopedic Massage, Postural Integration, and Practical Meditation.

These diverse healing modalities are particularly beneficial for individuals with conditions such as Lordosis, Scoliosis, Kyphosis, Lower Back Pain, Neck Pain, Degenerative Disc Disease, and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Drawing on his personal experience of self-care and rehabilitation following various injuries (including strains, sprains, a knee injury, and a serious back injury which led to chronic pain), Philippe undertook training in Orthopedic and Structural Massage, Bodywork and Pain Neuro-Education.

Further enhancing his holistic approach, Philippe is a certified Holistic Health Practitioner, a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, and a Chronic Pain Coach.
