“Veechi put me at ease in her very first session – far from being a stranger, a new friendship appeared out of nowhere. I opened up so much that I barely remember being so honest even to ‘myself’ – yet she made me feel protected. I left with a sense of being completely happy after having emptied myself completely. A ‘butterfly’ – that’s how I would describe her spirit and her personality, and this is the essence that she brings to each session. She makes me connect with my non-judgmental, childlike, free spirited side. I always turn to her as my friend and healer.”

“I spent a magical week with Annie and her team on her magnificent deep cleansing detox retreat. I couldn’t have asked for a greater birthday present. Not only did I cleanse my body with the amazing juices, almond milk and nutritious broth Annie and her team prepared freshly everyday, but I also reconnected with my own desires, ambitions and dreams. It is such a privilege in today’s charged lifestyle to be able to take time out, walk in nature, challenge body and mind and to listen to your inner voice. I can only praise Annie for her gentle approach and the absolute peace she embodies. This retreat should be a definite bucket list item for anyone who needs to realign themselves and who desires to find the beginning of their journey.”
