15 DAYS 

This retreat has a minimum duration of 15 days and can be extended up to 20, 25 or 30 days.
Levels: Initiate and Intermediate

Are you tired of following complex diets and nutrition plans with fast results promises to lose/gain weight and still can’t get the intended results?

At Quintinha do Mar we believe that weigh oscillations may not have a direct and exclusive connection with the nutritional capacity of the food we eat. To gain or lose weight is also a reflexion of the way we relate with the act of eating itself and the food energy.

Anxiety, emptiness and lack of self-esteem are emotional factors that may determine a feeding compulsion. The individual seeks to fill a void or compensate an area of his life that’s out of balance, by eating big amounts of food in a short amount of time.


Conscious Kitchen – The importance of the food energy

“The best medicine is not the cure but the one that prevents the disease.”

The prevention of diseases depends in the maintenance of balance of yin and yang, of the energetic relations between flavours, of the food and associated organs.


“It is necessary to know the properties and actions of every food, in the flavour point of view, in the action over each organ and in the action over each body meridian. It is equally necessary to know how to mix ingredients in order to avoid contrary effects.”

Sichieri, R. 

In our detox program we use the directives of the energy dietetic (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to diagnose** and establish a protocol** that looks at probable causes and takes care of the individual as a whole (emotional, physical, mental, … causes).

This program is an invitation to transform all your Bodies.

Physical and energetic body: Through the synergy of food, exercises and physical activities;

Emotional body: Traumatic events identification and resignification;

Mental body: Reprogramming thoughts and limiting beliefs.


By the end of 15 days we may observe positive changes. This program will give you the necessary support and impulse for you to implement healthier habits in your routine and who knows change your life completely.

You may choose to extend the presential program or participate in our online follow-up.

*The definition of which organs are in excess or deficiency, and the definition of the protocol to fortify and tone the involved organs, is obtained by the therapist from the diagnosis structured by the Five Elements Theory (Traditional Chinese Medicine).


What is detox?

As the name says it’s a detox, a purification, a cleanse, a sanitation of body, mind and emotions. Besides the cleanse we are going to have the chance to nourish your body.


Did you know that… The simpler the recipes the more nourishment to the body?


The less ingredients the body must process, the simpler the digestion, the easier will be the absorption of nutrients, allowing the digestive system to rest and, consequently, accelerate the vital regeneration of the body.

The simpler the food, the clearer our thoughts and the better prepared we’ll be to understand the subtleties of life.

How does it work?

As soon as we receive the reservation amount, we’ll send a survey meant to gather your personal data and medical history information.


On the day of the arrival we’ll have a circle with a brief introduction and preparation for the detox.


On the second day of the retreat you have an diagnostic appointment with our Traditional Chinese Medicine therapist and Naturopath – Rita Antão. After the evaluation a fully personalized detox and food plan will be designed following the orientations from the principles of the Traditional Chinese Medicine.


During the retreat detox tea, soups, juices/milkshakes or solid healthy food can be served according to your diet plan. All meals are free from dairy, sugar and gluten. Stimulating and inflammatory drinks will not be served: coffee, alcohol and sugar.


During the retreat you may further deepen your work through different proposed detoxifying practices or integrative therapies.


In the end of the retreat we’ll have a circle to close and integrate. You will also have at your disposal a food plan for a month and we’ll be available by email to answer any doubts (Follow-up).

What our Guest say   Learn More+


The practice of Yoga, with its postures (asanas), and its techniques (pranayamas), the different meditations and relaxation techniques (Nidra) seeks to bring an improvement on the quality of life and a harmony between the different bodies (physical, emotional and mental). It helps us to ground ourselves, relax, detox and expand, not only the body. It expands our consciousness and changes the way we see the world.


“The perfection of Yoga is to be exactly as we Are.”


Yoga at Quintinha do Mar offers a diversified range of possibilities, in the practice, that may be achieved by anyone, independent of their physical condition.


Day after day, and as we develop the connection with Yoga, the practices adapt, either to the moment as to the needs of the group, and it can be quiet or more dynamic.


The purpose is always self-knowledge, presence and full connection with your Being and with everything that surrounds you.


Qi Gong & Tai Chi Ch’uan

Taijiwuxigong is a Chinese self-healing system, simple and powerful, based in Qi Gong (Chi Kung) and Taiji (Tai Chi Ch’uan) founded by the great master Dr. Shen Hongxun.


This system uses several synchronized exercises, static and dynamic postures, combined with breathing techniques, sound and mental concentration that may be executed standing or lying down.


This practice fits everyone and may be adapted to all ages and health conditions.


The main objectives are to detox / purify the body, the energetic system and the emotions, promoting health, rejuvenation, joy and vitality.


It’s an opportunity to unleash your inner potential and discover a new way to look at yourself and to the world.

The activities take place indoors with the proper distance and weather permitting, preferably outdoors. If you prefer, meals can be served individually.


At this time of the year and due to the proximity of the sea, it can be quite cold in Quintinha do Mar. It is important to know that  we have a sustainable view on the use of energy and that is why heating (fireplace) takes place in the common rooms: living room activities, meals, etc. We do not use air conditioning.
