Experience beehive air therapy in the restorative and soothing atmosphere of our apitherapy house. Relax upon special ‘bee beds’ inside a uniquely constructed building. Then dream, meditate or chat with friends. View the apiary and woodland or browse the bookshelves. Honeybees create an impeccably clean and healthy environment inside a hive using the beneficial properties of wax, honey, propolis and more. The bee hive air permeates up through vents into the apitherapy house. It is relaxing, de-stressing, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, full of negative ions and deliciously fragrant. One can lie down on the beds and be entranced by the gentle hum and whispering of the honeybees below, at the same time benefitting from micro vibrations. The whole building is designed to enhance the finest quality of air. Breathing masks are available, being connected directly to the hives below the beds for more concentrated beehive air. People come to these experiences for many reasons: Simple relaxation and rest; as a remedy for an imbalance, ailment or concern; to share some meditative time; to immerse in the blessings of bees; with friends and fellowship with nature or simple soulful solitude. I like to consider this experience as a perfect mix of science and sorcery. Blending the medical benefits of this soothing apitherapy with magic, wonder and literally inspiration.
Chris Park I am a beekeeper on an organic farm in the Vale of the White Horse, UK. The bees here are kept in many different styles of hive from logs to long hives. I’m an expert in ancient beekeeping, a skep-maker, teacher, apitherapist and experimental skep beekeeper, lecturing and giving workshops within the U.K. at conferences, to beekeeping associations and special interest groups. I am also a writer, co founder and chairman of the Beekeeping History Trust. My wife Sushila is an experienced and qualified masseuse, and makes balms and soaps. We are passionate about keeping bees in ethical and healthy ways, without any treatments or chemicals, never feeding them sugar, allowing them to swarm, not clipping wings, always leaving them enough stores for the winter and so forth. We believe in the old saying ‘wherever there are bees, there
