A precise set of vocal and respiratory exercises helps to dissolve tensions, unblock the diaphragm and allow the breath to flow. Taught through private sessions, courses and intensives, this therapy harnesses the power of the voice to restore equilibrium to every part of our being. Expect to find new forms of expression as you release trauma and stress, clear inner blockages and harmonise mind and body.

A fusion of osteopathy, Thai massage and intuitive dance, Wùo Taï is a body treatment like no other.

Holistic healer and physiotherapist Nathalie Varlet studied with Wùo Taï founder Roland Combes and is the first to offer this treatment in Ibiza. Sessions have a soothing, meditative quality, like a gentle tranced dance as you lay back on the mat. Alongside her work with Wùo Taï, Nathalie also offers customised sessions that draw on a wide range of therapies for rebalancing and deep emotional release.
