Lives Transformed at Hills and Ranges Private:

“I went into Hills & Ranges Private a very, very broken woman with no faith - completely alone and isolated. And I was a different person when I completed the program. I felt alive for probably the first time in my life. I felt like the most authentic version of myself when I completed my stay… I’m not only a more present partner, I’m a more present mother, daughter and friend.”
- RACQUEL, Former Hils & Ranges Private Client
“I would do anything I could to truly pass on the message that there is possibility for change. There is an opportunity for a better life than what you’re currently living, no matter what your circumstances are… no matter what the extent of your addiction is, there is help.”
- JOSH, Former Client of Hills and Ranges Private

Developed by our team of counsellors and clinicians, the 5i® Recovery Process draws upon the globally recognised principles of the best abstinence based programs and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, combining them into a five-module process that can be effectively applied to anyone’s life - no matter the severity of their addiction.

Our HARP Day Spa provides a range of Therapeutic Massages to help our clients relieve stress, anxiety and pain and find a sense of calmness to better reconnect during their recovery at HARP. 

Reduces Pain and Agitation:
- Therapeutic massage helps relieve pain by interrupting or overwhelming the nerves that report pain in injured tissue, called nociceptors. 

Relieves Anxiety and Sleep Problems:
- Chronic stress can weaken the immune system, create mood disturbances, and affect sleep. Massage therapy lowers cortisol levels, helping you sleep better and feel less anxious. 

Incredibly Calming and Relaxing:
- Therapeutic Massage promotes relaxation by decreasing heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing stress hormones.

Promotes Feel-good Hormones:
- Research has shown that massage therapy increases dopamine and serotonin levels by 30%.

When we strengthen the logical and emotional areas of our brain through mindfulness practices, we become more aware of and attuned to our emotions. Mindfulness practices help us to develop a “wise mind.” This is a state of balance and equanimity that allows us to see, accept and respond appropriately to our emotions. As a result, we have more control over our thoughts and actions. This can help us avoid acting impulsively and making decisions out of fear or anger.
