The Brookhaven Retreat Campus
The property at Brookhaven is nestled on a naturally beautiful 48-acre site secluded in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains. The grounds are superbly landscaped, adding to the tranquility and serenity that is needed to make the journey of introspection and self understanding. The ability to stroll though the woods or by the creek, or to jog along the walking paths will allow you to find a quite place to mediate. Each season has a beauty of it's own at Brookhaven, which experiences none of the extremes in weather. The grounds include a ropes course, ball park, nature trails, and stabling for our four Tennessee Walkers. Team building exercises with your program companions teach you many things about yourself and your relationships with others.
Our client rooms and common areas are furnished and decorated to provide a homey, comfortable healing environment.
Physical Fitness & Bodywork
Physical fitness promotes emotional and mental wellness and a variety of approaches are adopted to assist those that have allowed this to fall to the wayside, also those that already know this has been essential to their lifestyle. Onsite we have a range of fitness programs which can include walking, core exercises, stretching, dancing, Pilates training. Off site there is weight training, cardiovascular training and indoor swimming. A range of other specialized classes are available seasonally.
Holistic bodywork services , including acupuncture, reflexology, massage, salon and spa therapy are available off site. These types of services can be very useful for pain management issues.
Meal times are an essential part of each day as self nourishing is part of self loving. Emotional eating or not eating has become one of the clear indicators that our clients have felt disconnected from themselves.
Our Kitchen team work to produce a spa cuisine that will tempt those that have lost interest in food and assist those that have stopped caring what they eat. The kitchen team work with the dietician and menu consultants to provide stimulating food that recreates the interest in clean food and redirects from comfort eating to life cleansing eating. There is very careful preparation that takes place using market fresh foods with emphasis on seasonal approaches. Any specific dietary needs can be discussed with the dietician and lead chef .
A variety of beverages and snacks are available continuously.
