Many people spend hours a day hunched over a desk, staring at a computer screen or phone. This can lead to poor posture and various health problems, such as neck pain, back pain and headaches. That is why Chiva-Som has created a posture improvement programme where you can learn posture improvement exercises. Located in Hua Hin, Thailand, our retreat is also a great opportunity for you to unwind and relax amidst lush gardens, and soak in the ocean views to reconnect with yourself and find equilibrium away from work.
Our Optimal Performance Retreat is designed to help you correct your posture and alleviate the pain caused by hours of sitting with poor posture. Our team of experienced professionals, that include physiotherapists and fitness experts, have created this retreat to guide you on how to improve your posture.
Our programme begins with an assessment by our Physiotherapisst, who will evaluate your posture and take note of any pain you may be experiencing. From here, our team will create a personalised plan that includes posture improvement exercises and other techniques to correct any imbalances or weaknesses in your body.
You can choose to focus on a variety of goals during your retreat. Besides posture improvement, we can focus on pain management, recovery and rehabilitation or physical fitness development. These factors are often related to one another, and programmes that work on your posture will also have a positive effect on other areas. Improving your posture can help alleviate pain and reduce tightness in your muscles, naturally promoting mobility.

Treatments & Activities
During your stay with us, you will have a chance to try a number of treatments and activities conducted by our health and fitness experts. We have many treatments and activities for you to choose from, including:
Deep Tissue Massage
This massage focuses on targeting your body's muscles, scar tissue and fibrous connective tissue. The goal is to release accumulated tension, blockages, and knots caused by long periods of sitting with poor posture. Our massage therapists seek to enhance blood circulation and break down small scars that may have formed between the muscle fibres. This type of massage can help increase your flexibility and reduce pain and tension. We recommend this massage particularly if you have stress which tends to gather in the shoulder area.
The Neurac® treatment is a distinctive therapy designed to address acute and chronic pain, neuromuscular dysfunction and musculoskeletal disorders. This approach uses three-dimensional suspensions to enhance muscle function and re-establish pain-free movement patterns. By combining manual suspension therapy with specialised movement assessment techniques, the Neurac® Method aims to address the underlying causes of discomfort and help our patients achieve long-lasting results.
We have 54 rooms and suites that each offer picturesque views of our lush gardens or the ocean. The Patchouli, Jasmine, Champaka, Golden Bo, and Leelawadee suites are each uniquely designed with calming earth tones and traditional Thai decor. Our suites come with various features, including separate living areas, extended terraces, and direct access to the swimming pool. The Leelawadee Suite is the largest and most exclusive, with a spacious living area and a jacuzzi on the terrace.
At Chiva-Som, our goal is to help you continue living life positively and comfortably long after your retreat. Our experts will impart posture improvement exercises you can continue practising after you leave. We look forward to guiding you towards a better way of living with our posture improvement programme in Thailand.
