The ultimate
relaxation
experience.

Science-based therapies for mind and body well-being, inside a real Mongolian yurt right in the heart of Halifax.

Relaxation therapy yurt in Halifax

An authentic traditional setting.

Yurts are the traditional tiny homes of the nomadic peoples of central Asia. We transported a real Mongolian handmade yurt to Nova Scotia, where it was reassembled inside the Halifax Professional Centre. It’s the perfect space for you to experience real relaxation.

Therapy for stress

The healing power of sound.

Inside the yurt, our custom-built sound therapy bed melts away tension in minutes as gentle sound waves soothe your whole body. Sound healing is a safe and healthy way to feel relaxed, improve sleep, and boost brain function and creativity. It’s natural and feels great!

Energy healing Nova Scotia

The key to a healthy mind and body.

Most people experience some amount of daily stress. Over time, that can drain your energy and weaken your immune system. Our therapies combine traditional healing arts with modern neuroscience to help you be your best. And the positive post-yurt vibes can last for days.

What happens in The Healing Yurt?

While you relax comfortably on the sound therapy bed, natural therapies work behind the scenes to make your mind and body feel relaxed and recharged:

Vibroacoustic Sound

Waves of sound from the sound therapy bed are felt as gentle vibrations in the body. This calms the central nervous system and stimulates the production of feel-good neurochemicals (dopamine and endorphins) in the brain. It may also reduce symptoms of illness and disease, according to a US National Institutes of Health study.

Far-Infrared Heat

A layer of warmed natural jade and clay stones in the sound therapy bed gently warms the body and increases blood circulation to the extremities. This relaxes and soothes tense muscles, and gives the sensation of floating in space. Medical studies indicate far-infrared heat may also increase antioxidants in the blood, improving immune function.

Curated Aroma

Relax with the subtle scent of wood-based aromatherapy oils in the air. But our aroma does more than just smell wonderful. We've specifically selected natural aromatic oils that have a calming effect on the mind while purifying the air. Research in Japan suggests the naturally-occurring substances in our aroma may even help boost the immune system.

Relaxation Audio

Tune into relaxation with high-definition 24-bit audio played through Bose noise-cancelling headphones. Choose from our own exclusive scientifically designed audio programmes, including relaxation training, healing music, guided imagery, and advanced brain-boosting meditation techniques.
