Anassa was born out of a dream to create sanctuary from our busy lives to transform, heal and feel inspired. We help you unlock the physical, mental & emotional blockages that prevent you from reaching full vitality and optimal health, guiding you back to a state of flow.
Qualified Integrative Medical practitioner and psychiatrist, Dr.Siobhan Dawson and Corporate Visionary Megan Abbott, host immersive retreats and workshops in idyllic locations in and around Cape Town.
We combine insights from Neuroscience and Functional medicine with evidenced-based healing practices. Cocooned in nature and spa like facilities, we support your discovery through gentle detox; resetting the nervous system; movement medicine; sound bathing; deep inquiry & playfulness.
In our demanding, over connected lives, we can lose perspective and our sense of inner happiness and meaning. Anassa inspires to tap into your innate resources, empowering you to master your life.
Anassa’s Getaway Retreats are hosted at the idyllic Angala Hotel which is nestled in the Franschhoek/Stellenbosch winelands of South Africa. Encapsulated by mountains and rich biodiversity, the peace is only splintered with bird song. Angala offers our clients the perfect respite to unwind, reflect, heal & rebalance.
Angala’s 5-star facilities include an Eco pool naturally filtered by medicinal plants; an infrared sauna & steam room for deep detoxification; a heated Ozone swimming pool for cell rejuvenation and a cold plunge pool.
The luxurious rooms offer indoor and outdoor showers; small private gardens and some of the latest amenities. This is the ideal hideaway from your busy life.
An in-house chef personalises a nutritious menu plan for the retreats. This completes the enriching and holistic mind-body-soul experience offered by Anassa.

In all the years that I have seen psychiatrist ( and there have been plenty) not one has ever come up with suggestions on how I can improve my way of life from every angle. Thank you Dr Dawson for taking a remarkable interest in me . – Dr BG
