Mind – Carla Lindstrom
De-stress and be more mindful for the year ahead with Carina Lindstrom as she takes residency at Anantara Dhigu Resort and Anantara Kihavah Villas, offering subtle energy healing modalities, both ancient and modern. One of Carla’s three signature treatments is Deep Relax Body & Mind; a powerful but light touch technique that allows the mind to settle into a deep relaxed Theta state. Slow brain wave movements and a combination of energy and intuitive healing lead to improved clarity of mind and mind-body connection that can empower you to see your life differently and create a healthier view of your life, body and changes you can make.
Coach, Entrepreneur, Facilitator and Intuitive Healer, Carina Lindstrom will be at Anantara Dhigu Resort from 22 January to 23 February, and Anantara Kihavah Villas from 23 February to March 22.
