is wholistic, and we view the entire person which includes the body, mind and spirit.
Our objective is your health restoration
Our services range from single therapies to residential programmes. Whether you're seeking advice on how to begin a changed lifestyle, assistance with overcoming a health condition, support during your ongoing journey, a place to come aside and rest awhile, or an opportunity for learning and development, we have something for you.
We run day clinics which operate from Sunday to Thursday. At the day clinics you can receive a number of therapies or health consultation. Therapies that are offered are colonic hydrotherapy, deep tissue massages, nutrition consultation, muscular skeletal functional testing and rebalancing, poultices and other therapies that do not require overnight stays.
The health consultation involves assessments such as blood pressure, pulse, weight, visceral fat, body fat percentage, height, peak flow, etc but also Body Chemistry Analysis. Body Chemistry Analysis is a non-invasive test that utilises fresh samples of urine and saliva. There are seven tests in total, six of which are conducted on the urine sample (these include: total carbohydrate, pH, conductivity, cell debris, nitrate nitrogen and ammonia nitrogen). The last is a test of the saliva pH.
Provisional results are given at the consultation but a detailed lifestyle protocol providing guidance on how to improve your
health is tailored for you to follow. This is emailed to
you and a hard copy will be posted to you.
After you receive the protocol you are
welcomed to ring to discuss any aspect it.
In order to achieve readings that reflect your current health its important that you do not change your lifestyle before being tested.
The best samples of urine (about 100mls) and saliva (teaspoon) are taken first thing in the morning, on rising.
Make sure that you have had nothing to eat 2 hours before obtaining your urine and saliva samples. Do not drink for 30 minutes prior to obtaining the sample.
Continue to take any medications prescribed to you or that you would usually take. Continue to follow your usual daily patterns and eat, drink and exercising as usual. This will reveal your true results.
The health consultation will take 1 -2 hours. Appointments are available Sunday to Thursday.

Our residential programmes are the cornerstone of our operation. We understand that in case of sickness, the body often needs a complete rest; the mind needs space and time to refocus and regenerate. We aim to provide a calm, supporting environment, where you can take time away from the demands on everyday life, and give yourself a place to breathe and to heal.
We currently have two types of residential programmes, and they run for either seven days, or ten days. We also give the option of tailor-making your stay, so you can choose the length of time best suited for your schedule.
Our distinctive 'Restore to Health' residential programmes are specifically designed to assist those who are combating various health challenges
Our lighter 'Refresh' packages are perfect for those looking to recharge their bodies and boost their health to another level.
Residential Programme Description
Your stay at Manna House starts on Sunday with a plant based lunch, prepared from the freshest ingredients sourced locally and some from our two acre garden and cooked in our kitchen. On this first day you will have a private consultation with our health consultants and a programme tailored according to your personal needs. Sunday afternoon you will attend an introductory lecture outlining the activities for the next few days. In the evening you will savour the freshly made vegetable broth and then return to your room to drift off to sleep.
Monday begins early with health checks and morning meditational. After this, you will commence the detox or cleansing programme. You will be treated to your first juice of the day, after which various freshly-made juices will be served every few hours. Following juices, the day continues with walking, a health conference, and then the health presentation starts. Here you will learn about various processes of the body and how the body possesses amazing techniques to recover from sickness, given the correct opportunities.
According to your specific health needs and personalised health plan, you will have various therapies administered, such as hydrotherapy treatments, poultices, massages, and further assessments. There is time to relax, take a walk, do some leisurely gardening or simply read and meditate. By the evening you will be ready for a nutritious warm broth, and enjoy an enlightening meditational worship before bedtime remedies. After this you can happily retire for your much needed sleep.
The next few days of the programme is much like the first day, where you will participate in the juice feast, enjoy therapies classes and meditational worship sessions, also practical demonstration. There is also time between these activities where you can pursue activities – or non-activities – of your own choosing.
The amount of days you enjoy your 'juice feast' is dependent on your detoxing progress. When we see steady improvement, you are ready to transition from delightful juice to plant-based meals.
On the morning your juicing ends, there will be a more vigorous early morning walk, followed by a breakfast of lightly steamed vegetables other delights. This is followed by more interesting health presentations, more relaxing and cleansing therapies, and then another mouth-watering wholesome lunch. The rest of the your time progresses fairly much the same – days of enjoyable exercise, informative lectures, practical demonstrations, soothing therapies, fun activities and scrumptious plant-based meals. The array of these dishes includes chickpea waffles, raw bircher muesli, millet and barley loaf, pinto bean bake, pecan meatballs, puy shepherds pie, potatoes wedges, fresh salads, lasagnes, and other filling and palette-pleasing repasts.
On the penultimate evening we join together to celebrate your graduation from the Restore to Health programme with a keynote motivational speaker, certificate and photos to remind you of your achievement.
On the morning of departure, you will enjoy a hearty and delicious breakfast. Your very last health presentation ' The Journey Continues' is a time to reflect on the last few days and what you achieved and make key decisions about the changes you will commit to once leaving Manna House. Departure is usually between 11 and 11.30am.
Most people find themselves experiencing ambivalent emotions – they look forward to getting home and sharing their new knowledge and energy, but at the same time are sad to be leaving such a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Each guest leaves with new friendships and memories that often call them back for return stays!
