The main reason people come to The Atsumi Retreat Healing Center in Thailand is to “Fast & Cleanse” their system of physical & emotional toxins that accumulate from modern stressful lifestyles. We strongly recommend a minimum of 4 days for any of our fasting programs. Guests have come to Atsumi for fasts of 4 to 35 days. Most of our guests stay at least 10 days.


The process is very simple, most guests do not experience any hunger, & report an amazing sense of wellbeing. Naturally you will lose weight, usually one kilo per day for men, & half a kilo per day for women. For those with little time or who want to “dip their toes in the water,” we also have four day programs.

While fasting & detoxing you are provided with all necessary herbs, cleansers, & naturally, a lot of water. The process is very simple & during this time you are instructed & supervised by experienced detox   staff.  It’s important to approach your Full Fasting experience with us in an informed & dedicated manner. When we receive your enquiry we will send you pre-fasting instructions in order to prepare your body correctly for Fasting, & to maximize the results you achieve at Atsumi.

Our full/juice fasting program is for healthy individuals. You cannot follow a full/juice fast program if you are in the high risk category (please refer to our full/juice fast contraindications). 


Full fasting or Juice Fasting is for those who wish to reduce inflammation and the related diseases including, potentially, heart disease and cancer – but is not directly for weight loss though this generally happens as a side-effect. The negative of the full fast is it can negatively affect thyroid hormones and raise cortisol (stress hormone) which then affect sex hormones so a person can rebound later. We would not recommend full/juice fast for those suffering health issues like adrenal fatigue (burnout syndrome), hypothyroidism, menstrual problems, blood sugar imbalances and of course any of the health issues outlined in our contraindications list. We strongly advise females under the age of 40, even if healthy, NOT to full fast for more than 10 days


The raw diet was developed for fat loss as a low calorie liver cleansing diet. We can generally only lose 1-2 kilo of fat per week which this diet does in most cases but may not reduce the water like the full fast so that is why the scales fall faster on full fast due to water. The diet also allows training which is critical to weight loss.

What else can I do to Cleanse and Detoxify my Body and Mind?


One of the foundations of healthy living and a body that functions well is ensuring our daily intake of water. We all need at least 2 litres of water every day, not counting tea or coffee. Water will help to prevent dehydration, headaches, tension, swelling or bloating and improve the overall quality of the skin. During your detox program we encourage you to drink as much water as possible, at least 4 litres to assist and speed up the removal of toxins. Purified water is provided in your rooms and available at water dispensers around the grounds.


Fibre, in the form of vegetables and grains, for example, is invaluable in cleansing the body.

Optimal foods include: leafy greens, carrots, baby sweetcorn, broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, and onions.

Dry brushing should always begin at the feet and move up the body, stroking towards the heart. It is an excellent way of stimulating and increasing circulation to help keep cellulite away. Dry brushing also stimulates muscle contraction improving blood and lymph flow, clears the pores, removes dead skin and stimulates sebum, which in turn helps to improve the texture and tone of the skin. After just a few days of following this regimen, the skin will appear smoother, softer and boast a natural radiant glow.


The skin is the largest organ and an excellent way for the body to release toxins. Exfoliating in firm circles, both large and small, all over the body opens and cleans the pores, energises and revitalises the skin and makes elimination unobstructed. We recommend that you exfoliate the skin gently every three days, you may choose to bring your own exfoliating cream with you, choose to create a natural blend using honey, salt and coconut oil or visit the Atsumi spa for a full body scrub.

Using essential oils is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of natural therapy. Essential oils are absorbed through the skin at molecular level, passing through the hair follicles and diffusing into the bloodstream and cellular fluids. Oils usually take between 20 minutes and several hours to be absorbed depending on how much body fat you hold. Oils can be used to relax or rejuvenate, to ease pains or relieve stress, to aid sleep, to help nausea and to calm the whole body and mind. For Aromatherapy lovers, try our Atsumi herbal compress massage.
