Spa behandelingen

Nestling in the warm green of the West Sussex countryside, Ockenden Manor Spa has been designed to create a haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Purpose-built inside a 19th century walled garden, the contemporary airy structure contrasts and complements its neighbor, the Elizabethan Ockenden Manor, and shares it nine acres of parklands and gardens.

Ananda face therapy

Ananda means bliss in Sanskrit. The techniques used in this facial come from Shaman women in Mexico, who believe that the energy of light is deeply rejuvenating.

Working with marma points to open up the energy centers of the face allowing a blissful flow of energy into the body, this is a healing and reviving treatment that brings deep feelings of peace and wellbeing and a beautifully radiant skin.

Biorhythm ritual

This ritual is particularly suited to combat the effects of city life, frequent traveling, and flying, and those feeling chronically fatigued, stressed and depleted of energy. The natural flow of the body's biorhythm is closely linked to the body's magnetic energy field. This electrical magnetic field is made up of positive and negative ions.

Negative ions charge the body with energy, vitality, and a feeling of wellness. Positive ions deplete the body's energy resulting in feeling drained, tired, and stressed. The focus of this ritual is to restore the body's natural bio-rhythm and deeply relax the nervous system.

A powerful, energizing full body salt scrub kick starts the treatment, followed by a cocooning mud wrap containing high levels of minerals which, as they become warm, emit large amounts of negative ions, charging and restoring the body's bio-magnetic energy field. A soothing Kundalini back massage is then given to balance and relax the nervous system, the ritual then concludes with a facial marma point massage.

Ila Kundalini back treatment

Kundalini-female goddess of awareness in the form of a coiled snake is the dormant energy in the base of the spine, which, when awakened, travels up the spine to the third eye. This leads to increased energy and spiritual enlightenment. This treatment is a back massage that is deeply soothing, relaxing, and balancing to the whole nervous system thanks to the synergistic use of an exquisite essential oil blend used in combination with ancient massage techniques and chakra healing.

Isopod flotation

For complete tranquility and calm, nothing compares to an hour spent in our isopod flotation tank. Body temperature saltwater suspends you effortlessly, allowing every muscle total relaxation. Research shows that not only is it an invaluable injury rehabilitation aid, it relieves pain and boosts the immune system. A boon to meditation, its also proven to reduce stress, encourage endorphins, and promote mental clarity. One isopod flotation session is included in the price.


Focusing on one of the most neglected parts of our bodies, the feet. This reflexology zone massage uses your choice of REN or ila aromatherapy oils. It will help rebalance the body by working on reflex points in the feet which correspond to the rest of your body, leaving you relaxed and helping to restore lost energy.

The spa offers a wide range of treatments that you can choose from while you're in this retreat.
