Many guests find the We Care Spa grounds and detoxification facility are some of the best things about us. Not only is the landscaping lush, peaceful and filled with nature and interesting sculpture, but our architecture is an eclectic mix of the work of local artists and architects. Check out the Gallery to see photos of the grounds and buildings.
Spiritual Detoxification Happens with Healing Installations
Another unique facet of our detoxification spa is the healing installations that are a permanent part of the We Care Spa; they are not only unique and beautiful but they play an important role in the detoxification process and spiritual attunement we offer you. These installations are:

Exercise is a Daily Part of Your Detox Program; Our Specialized Equipment
At We Care Spa we have a customized approach to exercise with very specialized detox equipment to be used each day. Our detox specialized detox equipment (which is found all over the property)
has one goal in mind; that is DETOXIFCATION. Of course, we do want to create movement and exercise while you are juice fasting and cleansing but the KIND OF MOVEMENT is as important as burning calories or fat. Following we’ll explore where what and how our specialized equipment deepens your detoxification during the We Care Spa program. (Check out Maximizing Your Stay in the Program section of the website to learn how it all fits together.)
The Swing Machine
gives your lymphatic system the benefits of walking two miles while reclining and stimulating your circulatory system at the same time (without the spine-jarring effects of running or jogging)
The Rebounders (trampoline)
has an important detox effect on the lymph system as it flushes waste and carries nutrients into the cells.
The Jacuzzis (two of them)
relieves muscle tension while it soothes the whole being.
brings blood to the brain, face and neck.

Detoxing the Lymphatic System
We like this machine because of its profound effect on overall detoxification and in particular the lymphatic (we think of it as the vacuum cleaner of the body) and circulatory systems. The vibration of the platform "jiggles" the body up and down, back and forth creating a detoxifying pumping action that increases
movement and flow in these important systems. The bottom line: your detoxification and release is maximized with 10 minutes (2 times a day) on the VibraTrim (found in the yoga room and lounge areas).
Whole Body Vibration technology is used by people on the go who want to lose weight and get healthy... well-known sports teams, individuals, entertainers, medical / rehabilitation / therapeutic centers, universities, hotel spas & fitness facilities.
VibraTrim provides a resistance exercise workout that is proven to be effective in 10-minute sessions. The programs are designed to run a total of three minutes. This is an essential part of your detox and will increase your release during the colonics. The self-directed program will also last 10 minutes. It is highly recommended not to exceed 2 sessions or 20 minutes in any one continuous workout. Research has shown that whole body vibration builds muscle mass 1 to 2 times faster than conventional weight workouts.
The Swing Machine (also called Chi Machine)
We like this machine for its profound effect on the Lymphatic system in deepening the Detox. It is an amazing way to detox as you work out when you are fasting; it takes very little energy.
Here's what is said about this machine:
Swing machine offers the benefits of a good workout without the spine jarring effect of running or jogging. Only 15 minutes on the Chi machine is estimated to be equivalent to 90 minutes of walking in terms of body oxygenation.
The Chi Machine detoxifies by bringing motion brings blood circulation and oxygen to tissues and organs that have been deprived of oxygenation because of inactivity. It oxygenates every cell in the body, not just the targeted muscle areas of a conventional workout. Lactic acid is released without soreness and injuries may heal faster. This is great for people who are under stress either at work or at home. Only 4 minutes on the Chi Machine detoxifies and provides great relaxation, relief, and energy boost and is excellent for helping with stress management. It detoxifies, rejuvenates nerves and muscles, relieves tension in the back, neck and shoulders, and helps sharpen mental focus and increases productivity and morale with a sweatless, simple use that can be done during a short break. The Chi Machine has a calming effect and helps focus and realign mental and emotional turmoil.
Up And Down Motion Detoxifies
And Moves Lymphatic Fluids
The Trampolines are one of our favorite pieces and there are several throughout the property. Here’s what they have to say about the importance of the rebounder and its effect on detoxification and the lymph system:
The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Unlike blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products unable to detox properly and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as aging. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow and detoxification by 15 to 30 times.
The lymph fluid moves through channels called "vessels" that are filled with one way valves, so the lymph always moves in the same direction. The main lymph vessels run up the legs, up the arms and up the torso. This is why the vertical up and down movement of rebounding is so effective to pump the lymph and enhance the effects of the We Care Detoxification Spa.
Rebounding For Detoxification And Immune System Benefits
The rebounding motion stimulates all internal organs, moves the cerebral-spinal fluid, and is beneficial for the intestines. Many immune cells such as T-lymphocytes and macrophages are self-propelled through amebic action. These cells contain molecules identical to those in muscle tissue. All cells in the body become stronger in response to the increased "G force" during rebounding, and this cellular exercise results in the self-propelled immune cells being up to 5 times more active. These immune cells are responsible for detoxifying and eating viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells, so it is good that they be active. Jumping on a mini-trampoline directly strengthens the immune system, so it's a big deal!
There are two jacuzzis on the property (located by the Gazebo and the colony), using them to relax and de stress is a must. Here's what they say about this form of hydrotherapy:
Hydrotherapy is equally helpful for relaxing and soothing an important aspect of our detoxification spa anti-aging program. A jacuzzi or whirlpool promotes a feeling of well-being through the circulation of warm water and the gentle massaging action of the bubbles. This can relieve tension, muscle soreness and stiffness. A sauna or steam room helps to detox the body through promoting perspiration. The perspiration, which is caused by the use of steam and heat, causes detoxification through the elimination of waste products from the body and the skin.
People have always recognized the importance of this vital element to our livelihood, health and well-being. Whether strengthening or soothing, cleansing or detoxing, hydrotherapy is one of the most elemental paths towards a healthy lifestyle.
The open pyramid is located by the Gazebo and has healing properties all its own. We have placed a bench under the pinnacle for meditation.
Balance Pranic Energy During Meditation
Here’s what is said about the power of the pyramid in healing:
Healing Properties – Although no guarantees can be given that a pyramid can heal anyone, it does seem to have helped many people throughout the ages. It is also known to keep food fresh longer, energise water - seems to mummify food/water to keep them fresh. We have also found that ailing plants often to come to life, while cats and dogs love to sit and sleep in pyramids. In ancient times sick people would often sleep overnight in pyramids as part of their healing process.
Why these special powers?
Dense Pranic Energy – One solution could be due to the pyramid shape attracting and consolidating what is known as pranic energy, into a balanced area of prana. When someone enters the pyramid it constantly tries to keep its own energy field in balance and in doing so, can sometimes help to balance and release blockages, a kind of detoxification on a spirit level, in our subtle energy fields (auras and chakra's).
Pranic energy (sometimes known as Chi as used in Tai-Chi) is the universal energy that we all need to maintain our health. Our chakra's (energy centres), which are like spirals, spin clockwise to draw in healthy prana and spin anti-clockwise to exhale damaged prana. The prana is then circulated to all parts of our body to vitalise and maintain good health.
The pyramid also seems to channel energy from its apex to the ground, in a similar manner that healers channel energies through their hands, and it creates a protective space that is also good for meditation and relaxation.
They're found in the Yoga room and they are an important tool in your fasting and detoxification process. Dr Bernard Jensen had some important things to say about the slant board and its effect on your well-being.
Slanting for Brains and Beauty
Not only is the slant board good for your brain but it can also make you more you look younger and more beautiful too. Lying on a slant board will give you more color to your face and will bring your complexion back to normal quicker; think of it as a kind of anti-aging tonic. Beauty facials are given while the person is lying on a slant board. This causes the blood to rush to the face and neck and this extra blood, combined with the effects of the massage makes the facial more beneficial.
Forcing blood into the head and neck areas can also help to eliminate wrinkles. Even the scalp benefits; hair thickens, gets healthier, and may even grow faster. We've even heard stories of bald people growing real hair again.
"I attribute the great success of my healing work to the fact that I definitely recognize that the brain must be fed properly. Slanting board exercises are absolutely necessary to regain perfect health" - Dr. Bernard Jensen
