The Sanctuary Wellness Center in Berryville, Virginia is a place to reclaim balance in mind, body and/or spirit.  Along with other holistic providers in our area, we are creating a Wellness Destination for healthy and stress free retreats. The Shenandoah Valley boasts some of the finest farms, vineyards, antiques, music and the arts, along with abundant outdoor recreation of the Appalachian Trail and the Shenandoah River that surrounds us in peaceful beauty.  The Holy Cross Abbey offers silent retreats on its magnificent grounds.  Quaint bed and breakfasts are all around, and plenty of farm to table dining is here to enjoy. Come experience all the rejuvenating opportunities that are just an hours drive from the Washington-Baltimore area.








The mission of The Sanctuary is to bring preventative and restorative health and wellness solutions to everybody (and every body!) who gathers here. We seek to provide individual and group learning opportunities that can enable clients to lead balanced lives in good health, peace, ease, vitality & joy.
