Atmanjai Detox Center | Health And Wellness Retreat In Phuket

Not too long ago, “diet” used to be a word known only by people who consider themselves overweight, and “fasting” was no more than a religious term.  Well, things have suddenly taken a different turn because “detox” and “wellness” is sort of the “in” thing among health buffs nowadays… and more and more people seem to be a health buff now too!

Lately, people who are passionate about getting fit and healthy have realized the value of eating healthy as an absolute necessity to a healthy lifestyle.  They also no longer raise their eyebrows at the idea of regularly fasting (not eating solid food for a specific period of time) as an important part of detox.

 

Fasting And Detoxing

Fasting helps the body flush out toxins (which we all have in our bodies, no matter how healthy we think we are!) more effectively since all the vital organs that play an important role in waste elimination can focus on doing the job during a fast.  There are actually several different types of fasting.  The strictest type of fast, of course, is where you only take in water during the fasting period.  Some people might add vitamin supplements during such a fast.  A more moderate version of fasting (and therefore, more popular) is juice fasting or what others refer to as “juice cleansing” where no solid food is taken in, but fruit and vegetable juices are acceptable.

It is highly recommended that regular detox – whether it involves any type of fasting or not – be done at least once a year, and ideally once every three months (quarterly).

Simple detox efforts can be done by any individual at home without the supervision of a detox expert.  However, if you’re interested in a more intensive detoxification for a more thorough cleansing of your body, it’s best to handle it at detox facilities (such as The Farm At San Benito in Lipa City, Batangas in the Philippines).

Here in Phuket, Thailand, when you say detox, there’s only one place that veteran “detoxers” swear by – Atmanjai Detox Center.

 

Atmanjai Detox and Wellness Center

The Atmanjai Detox Center, located within Friendship Beach Waterfront Resort along Rawai Beach in Phuket, is technically the resort’s spa facility.  However, in actuality, it is more than just a spa.  Atmanjai happens to be the only part of the resort where one can fully experience healing, cleansing, pampering and some much sought-after quietude.

Atmanjai is also the primary reason Big Daddy brought our family here to Phuket on a “working vacation”.  This facility offers an Insulin Free Program for people with Type 2 Diabetes designed to wean patients off insulin and/or other diabetes medication in as little as 28 days.  So far, their program boasts a 100% success rate!

*More about the details of Big Daddy’s Insulin Free Program and what his day-to-day Atmanjai schedule is like on another post.

Atmanjai is being managed by Michael Massey, an expatriate from New Zealand who has been living in Thailand for many years.  He just recently married a Thai national who also works with him in running the facility.

DO NOT UNDER ESTIMATE! These trampolines are not merely for li’l kids’ amusement. They actually play a very important role in flushing out toxins from your body!

Atmanjai may not look so grandiose in terms of appearance but Big Daddy’s feeling (so far) is that – as far as detox programs go – theirs are some of the most intensive and effective detox programs available anywhere in the world.

The common reasons that clients from all over the world travel to Atmanjai for are:

• Feeling run down
• Wanting a “re-set” or “kick-start”
• Exhausted / fatigued from over-work
• Weight problems
• Needing time-out
• Low Energy
• Stiffness & Soreness
• Heart Disease

Atmanjai currently offers four (4) Detox Programs (click on the link for a more detailed description of each program):

  • Energy Reset – this program is a popular choice for business owners and corporate executives; it’s a mildly-demanding type of program that aims to correct the balance in the body by experiencing the full effects of detox while still enabling the client to relax and enjoy his vacation
  • Eat Well – perfect for first time detoxers who have just started on their path to learning more about health and making better food choices; this is the only program choice for those who want to detoxify minus the fasting
  • Ultra Cleanse – is an intense program most suitable for the experienced detoxers and fasters or for those who are confident and committed enough to take on not just the physical, but the mental and emotional challenges that usually come with a deep, comprehensive cleansing
  • Insulin Free – this is the only program specifically targeted for Type 2 Diabetes patients, to help get them off their dependence on insulin and other medications

Atmanjai Detoxers gather around this place everyday at 7am for their clay shakes and apple cider vinegar shots

All programs include a daily massage session, a yoga session, Thai Herbal Steam, cleansing herbs, cleansing shakes (that contain psyllium, bentonite clay and magnesium oxide), wheat grass shots and acai berry shots. Some programs will also incorporate raw breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as healthy smoothies, into the daily schedule.  Additional treatments or therapies specific only to your program of choice may also be added.

Each detoxer has to make his own drink. Here’s Big Daddy giving us a li’l smile as he makes his morning drink.

Atmanjai clients come away from their detox program not only feeling healthier than they have in years, but also feeling like part of a whole new family.  The staff of Atmanjai diligently and very closely monitor the progress of each detox patient, while making sure that each one follows his or her daily schedule of activities and treatments.  It is this kind of accountability and dedication that is detrimental to the success of a program.  When one is on detox, it is much harder than it all looks.  Self-control, discipline, perseverance and optimism are all going to be put to the test.  The Atmanjai staff is very much aware of how tough the process is for their clients and is there to support each one every step of the way until its completion.  So, at Atmanjai, you wouldn’t feel like you’re just “a piece of meat with a number on it”, so to speak, but one whom they really care about and sincerely want to help get back on the right track (healthwise) again.

As for the Atmanjai clients, they develop a really good relationship with the staff as the staff takes a genuine attitude of caring and concern for their progress on their detox program, and they develop a sense of camaraderie with other fellow detox patients as they face and overcome their detox challenges together.
