Established in 2012 in De Waterkant Village, we were first a day retreat in a beautiful 4-storey Georgian House for people to pop by and spend the day having healing and nurturing therapies and relaxing on the roof terrace in between. 

We have since evolved and are now a Holistic Wellness Centre specialising  in Life Transformation. 

My Urban Retreat in Sea Point, Cape Town is here to help you bring you and your life back into balance using a range of holistic and well-being therapies for mind, body & soul.

There is something for everyone. We are non-denominational so all are welcome from any background.

There isn’t anything we do or practice that interferes with anyones faith. We only promote happiness and encourage you to make that choice.

We are here to help & guide you with any challenging life issues you may face or just to gently help bring the vitality back into your life through these self development and healing methods…

Let us be your sanctuary in the city!


Our main focus is using Traditional Master Reiki energy healing (Usui) for a range of human discomforts on many levels including Emotional, Physical, Spiritual & Environmental.

Based on Chinese Medicine principles, Shiatsu Acupressure helps to relieve stress in the neck, shoulder and back and unblock energy trapped in points in the meridian system and is also a great way to detox the body. Essentially, it’s acupuncture without needles.

Our other therapy using a blend of Eastern and Western concepts is Touch For Health Kinesiology™ using Chiropractic, Meridian Lines, Chinese Medicine Elements and Acupressure points with muscle testing helps your body talk to tell us what it needs.  

We offer a range of well-being classes which are designed around the chakra energy system.

These 30minute classes include meditation, mindfulness. unlocking creativity, connecting with nature, finding your inner peace, de-stressing, releasing negativity and finding a healthy life equilibrium that you are comfortable with.


We are now feeling the very special energy at the foot of Lions Head in Bantry Bay.

We have done a full circle around the Signal Hill & Lions head over the years! 

Lion’s Head is a very sacred place next to Table Mountain, which is the Star Chakra of the world.. a cosmic gateway to the Universe with many powerful vortexes in it’s presence. 

That with the beautiful grounding forces of Mother Nature all around makes this one special place to be. 

Charmaine Haig, Owner of My Urban Retreat came back from a 2month trip from the Sacred Valley in Peru (July/Aug 2019) where she learnt much more about working with the Earth Energies, Power Animals, Sound Ceremonies & Soul Retrieval amongst other new & exciting practices.

Shamanic Healing Practice does not need to include plant medicine but one can still work with the energy of the medicinal plants without actually taking them.

We are looking forward to our new beginning as we work more with this energy in your sessions, classes and workshops. 

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Go Well!
