Research has undeniably supported the beneficial role exercise plays in recovery from mental health challenges, chronic stress, and substance misuse or addiction.

At The Banyans Health and Wellness, tailored physical health therapies are incorporated into each program to help you recalibrate the physical aspects of your body’s health and wellbeing.

Exercise physiology

Our physical health team is lead by an exercise physiologist, who designs individual exercise plans for each guest at The Banyans. Your plan will take into account your current level of physical fitness, mobility, flexibility, and other existing conditions. Body measurements (such as lean muscle mass and percentage of body fat) are taken at the beginning and end of your program to track your progress.

Yoga therapy

Our qualified yoga therapist has been practising yoga therapy for more than 20 years. At The Banyans, yoga is designed to help guests achieve a more peaceful, balanced state of mind and body. Yoga has been shown to help the body rebalance, and improve alertness, muscle tone, core strength, flexibility, and stamina. Guests are encouraged to engage in yoga practice three times a week while at The Banyans.

Massage therapy

The Banyans is proud to partner with massage therapists at Stephanie’s Spa to provide guests with a relaxing and therapeutic experience. As the health benefits of massage exceed just pain and stress relief, it forms a part of the wellness plan developed for each guest of The Banyans.
