    "I Jenny, was here on a three week journey and I was able to lose 9.2Kg and 94cms off my body – with injuries! I convinced my friend Chantel to join me on the last week as I was so happy with my success and the program. Gwen, before I came to your retreat I tried all kinds of diets, went to all kinds of gyms with different trainers and some high profile experts even a doctor (who wanted me to have lap band surgery at age 23) and never got results. Although I worked hard followed their diets and listened to my trainers nothing came off. I was told it was my fault for not working hard enough and accused of eating too much bad foods. I felt horrible. When I came here you took me to get a live and dry bloods done and everything started to make sense, I needed to support my body and restore the wellness of my body, my body was carrying a lot of fluid, not all fat as I was told. You taught me to work with my body and not against it, you set me up on a program to burn fat and eliminate the excess fluid I was carrying due to congested lymphatic system and finally I was able to get unbelievable results! I want to thank you for helping me through this journey, the information and the training has been invaluable and I will continue working on everything I have learnt from you. Thank you again."


    "I Chantel, also found it so invaluable and motivating that I’m estatic I made the spur of the moment decision to join Jenny on this amazing journey. In six days I lost 2.5kg and 44cm and gained an abundance of energy even with a rolled ankle. I have tried every diet out there, worked hard at the gym (which I now know I had no clue what I was doing) and always had zero-to-pitiful results. My health declined and so did my self esteem. I made a vow to myself this year that it would be my year (which it has) and this topped it off! I cannot thank you enough for all the information and training and support. I will now be able to move forward in my life with all positive energy and know in the future when I graduate as a registered nurse, I’II actually look like a health advocate, I will be the pocket rocket of the ward! thank you again, I have regained my motivation self confidence and self love that I’ve lost the last few years."

    "I wish most sincerly, to say, Thank you Gwen for all you have done for me. There are so many things I’d like to say, though I have tears flowing as I write. My precious ten days have been much much more rewarding on so many different levels than any of the health and wellness retreats I’ve atteended (these include the finest in our beautiful country). Thank you to your talented team of Hayden, Robyn, Sarah, John, Solomon and Joanne. Thank you dearest Gwen, for this opportunity to turn my health and wellbeing onto the right track."

    "Thank you Gwen, for teaching me the importance of eating right food for my body and when to eat. Your talks and guidance were always full of enthusiasm. What a dynamo you are. Your passion for teaching people about food and general well being is evident in everything you do. Thank you Jo, What an assest you are to Gwen. “You were my go to girl”. Your friendship, long talks and openess about your own past issues made me feel welcome and confident in the program. You are inspirational and someone to look up to. Thank you Robyn and Hayden, Both great trainers, always friendly, on time, know when to push to keep us going to achieve the results. Thank you chefs John and Solomon, Both great personalities and always very willing to talk food and share! Both turned out some awesome dishes – as did Gwen. I made some new friends and what else can I say except..keep on keeping on Chi of Life"

    "I am a insulin dependent diabetic during my stay I was amazed I was able to reduce my insulin from 100 to 25 units and now back at home I am holding good on 25 units insulin and got weighed yesterday have lost yet again, now 104.2 kl. You would not believe how far I am walking, everyone is stunned, shocked and amazed. I am even going to go back into the garden today to pull some weeds. My doctor Phil would be over the moon, I have not yet seen my Doctors because when I stopped to think about it I know that the first question they will ask is if I will be able to maintain it when I am doing this under my own steam. I am gathering proof that no one will be able to dispute, your program at Chi of Life works! Heather continues to lose weight slowly but she has certainly lost inches and says she has never felt better, looks very much brighter and people are commenting on this to her. Ken is also losing weight and just loves the food and is very supportive of both of us. My Grandchildren are over the moon with our results. They say they have got their Grandma back"

    "Although I knew I would lose weight here, that was not my primary reason for coming. I needed to detox my body!! I was in a very depressed and unhealthly place in my life and it could not go on. One of the reasons I chose Chi of Life was because of the availability of a NLP therapist (I know how powerful this kind of therapy is as I have used it before, studied it, certified in it). All the people that are available to you here, be it chiropractor, trainers, doctor, live blood analyst, massuer, whoever, all have one thing in common beautiful giving spirits. Everyone wants the best for you. It is a testament to Gwen's philosophy and program that Chi attracts such people. Trust the program, trust Gwen, give yourself a chance. After three weeks my body is feeling great my head is unmuddled and I feel better than I have in the last 15 years. Thank you Gwen and Co. for saving my life."
