I attended my first Reset Button in April 2017 and have been planning my return since. Everything about the retreat was wonderful. The professional team were friendly, welcoming and approachable and I learnt so much from them. I made simple dietary changes that literally changed my life.
On arrival I instantly felt a million miles away. Just spending a night in this location would be relaxing in itself – so it’s really something special when you are being pampered and looked after too!
I’d not done any meditation before but Jess was very easy to follow and all the sessions were enjoyable, even though I found it a bit difficult to stop my mind from wandering back to thinking about work and home. I loved the hiking, especially the mindful walk Jess took us on.
So many aspects of my life came up in my nutrition consultation, I do eat well, controlled, take in the veggies and like the odd supplement here and there, but what surprised me most was the effect the retreat had on my skin. For years, I have had a skin condition,

There were daily drop in mindfulness sessions which helped me to kick start my own, very much needed practice again. As well as an informative introductory talk, there was also a mindful walk which I really enjoyed. Listening to the birds and cowbells really helped me to decompress and tune into the moment - something I struggle with on a daily basis.

I came away with so much, from sleep meditation practises to help ease nocturnal anxiety, to a list of suggested supplements from the nutritionist to help with various ailments, I definitely felt reset. I realised it’s not about being perfect, but about doing little things every day,
The aim of the Reset Button retreats is to create the perfect environment for guests to relax while learning how to get back to the very best version of themselves. It is not a ‘fast fix’ but more a long-term reset, putting everyone back onto track creating realistic goals and teaching easily implementable ways to improve well-being.

I have more energy, less bloating, and my excema has totally cleared up despite being a health professional washing my hands repeatedly though out the day. Occasionally I break the diet at home out of convenience but that's fine. I really notice the difference in my digestive system and energy levels when I do, which encourages me to plan my meals and not lapse too often.
I've been a huge coffee drinker for years. I was averaging about 6 cups a day. I couldn't manage anything until I'd had my caffiene hit and really relied on it for getting me through the day.
Being at the retreat gave me the chance to kick the habit in the best possible way - you don't feel caffeine deprived when you are sitting by a gorgeous pool soaking up the sun while everything is being done for you. The food was delicious - it certainly has inspired me to eat more healthily. Obviously it's a lot easier when you have a chef there doing it for you every meal!
I was a bit nervous about going alone, but quickly it felt like being away with friends and I loved our chats round the fire at night.
All in all a great few days, I came home full of energy, and I still feel more energised than I did before I went - and that's without my 6 coffees a day! Would love to do it again.
I loved the house because it allowed you to be close to nature which is very grounding. Just taking in the wonderful view and hearing the birds tweet was relaxing. Since the retreat I have made some changes that I plan to continue, after my nutrition consultation with Claudia I have cut out diary. I’m noticing a difference with my Rosacea so I’m going to keep this up. I’m also continuing with meditation and mindfulness practice and having a good dose of this whilst away really helped. I definitely feel more mindful of my food choices too. I really enjoyed sitting on the sofas and chatting to the therapists – all sorts of topics, health and life chats, food tips etc. I feel inspired to continue with the healthy eating and exercise vibe and the retreat has definitely put me back on track. Thank you!
For me the Spring Clean Retreat at Reset Button felt like going back to your 'core' - reminding yourself of your breathing and being in the moment with the mindfulness meditation, really tasting all the food without any salt, sugars etc., getting in touch with your body with a therapeutic massage and exercise. Excellent combination! I highly recommend it to people who want a break and a change from the rat race! It Re-Set me!

The moment I stepped into the old Spanish masia and was greeted by the Reset Button team the craziness of London life felt a million miles away. We were treated to delicious healthy food, lots of helpful advice from Claudia the RB nutritionist, pilates and yoga classes which were tailored to suit all levels plus the calm and reflectiveness of mindfulness therapy not to mention Nunu's wonderful massage. I came home feeling refreshed and rested and inspired to carry on with the healthy eating, mindfulness and pilates. Ten days later I am still going strong and feel amazing. This really is what it says on the tin - a break to reset our hectic lives with a fantastic group of people who made it so easy and fun.
