La Blanque is a residential well-being retreat located in a beautiful 19th century Maison de Maître, 35 minutes from Toulouse, France.
Our retreat is nestled in the foothills of the vineyards surrounding the historic wine growing region of Gaillac, a town founded in the second century.
Although rural, the retreat is just five minutes from the three medieval villages of Salvagnac, Lisle-sur-Tarn and Rabastens.
Rod Capps and Irena-Marie Makowska arrived in France eight years ago to create their dream, a healing and well-being retreat.
After training as a clinical hypnotherapist, Irena-Marie has helped clients overcome phobias, weight loss, stress, pain and depression - to name a few. Comments Irena-Marie: "Each of us is capable of creating our own vision of what we would like to achieve. I love seeing clients realise their full potential".
Clinical hypnotherapy is about going into a state of deep relaxation and communicating with your subconscious mind – the part of your brain where habits, behaviours and beliefs are stored. By working with the subconscious you can create change, so that new beliefs, behaviour and habits can be adopted. The power of the mind is endless.

La Blanque Well-being Retreat offers a unique environment for individuals with very different needs. Some come to relax and rejuvenate, others to improve their health and well-being, or perhaps change the negative situations and patterns of their life...
"We all suffer from a degree of stress, however if we are not coping, or have not dealt with the core issue, this could manifest into physical and emotional dis-ease, such as anxiety, physical pain, sleeping and eating disorders, IBS and so on", comments Rod. "Our objective is for you to leave with renewed hope, feeling rejuvenated and relaxed."
The personalised programmes include one-to-one hypnotherapy, group sessions, meditation, massage, reflexology, facial, Pilates etc. There is ample free time to relax, swim, hike and explore local villages and markets.
