Sedona Retreats for Renewal and Recovery after Narcissistic Abuse

Jump Start to Getting Yourself and Your Health Back

  • Do you feel exhausted after the supposed love of your life turned out to be a narcissist, sociopath, or psychopath?
  • Are you the scapegoat of your toxic family system?
  • Do your nerves feel fried after being lied to, emotionally, verbally and/or physical abused?

There are reasons for that. Aside from the soul crushing feelings of betrayal, rejection and abandonment, your system has gone into sympathetic fight or flight mode and become overly adrenalized. A person in this state is at high risk for many illnesses, including autoimmune disorders, cancer and gastrointestinal disorders in addition to PTSD, anxiety, depression and insomnia.

It is time to take a break and heal.

Physical recovery from narcissistic abuse can take a concerted effort. My hope is that you can get out of the thoughts in your head and back into your body.  Jump start your recovery with a break from your current location. Treat yourself to a good check up that includes medical diagnostic evaluation to see if hormones and nutrients are out of balance, acupuncture to bring your nervous system into a calm parasympathetic relaxation state, daily yoga and possible massages to calm and soothe you.

The ongoing trauma of narcissistic abuse sets one up for complex post-traumatic stress disorder. A nervous system with C-PTSD is fried and needs to be calmed.

The positive results you can achieve are a targeted nutritional plan with hormone balancing, modalities like acupuncture to calm the nervous system, a mental break in a new location to remap the brain, tools to deal with trauma, and a visit to a dynamic and beautiful city.

My goal is that your peace will be more restored, your nervous system will shift into a calmer state, you may have a new perspective, tools to keep a healthier balance, and a baseline of your health so you can know your current needs for nutrients and wellbeing so that you can be more physically ready to heal and have the strength to emotionally grieve and recover.

5 Day Retreats, can be individualized for your personal needs:

  • Day 1: Initial evaluation, lab work recommendations and acupuncture, Yoga
  • Day 2: Consultation and acupuncture,  Yoga, Possible Massage
  • Day 3:  Yoga
  • Day 4: Consultation and acupuncture,  Yoga, Possible Massage
  • Day 5: Consultation, acupuncture, and treatment plan, Yoga

What are you going to take away?

You will take away a thorough diagnostic workup, a calmer nervous system, tools and resources for healing, suggestions for diet, and perspective that only some distance can give.

If you are not able to travel to Sedona, Arizona for treatment, Dr. Rubiales is available for online skype consultations.

Dr. Laura Rubiales

Laura Rubiales, ND, LAc

Dr. Laura Rubiales has been a licensed practicing naturopathic physician and acupuncturist for over 20 years. She has noticed repeatedly that certain incidents, especially those related to loss and trauma, can change people’s physiology, predisposing them to illness, and as a solution created this retreat to transition people to a healthier more fulfilling life at times of stress, trauma and/or loss.

While pre-med in undergrad, Laura became frustrated with the limitations of conventional medicine.  This led her to study a more holistic approach to medicine. A graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr Rubiales has a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.

Cheryl Bailey, Yoga and Meditation Teacher

Searching for answers after facing several traumatic and life-altering events, Cheryl found a sense of purpose and meaning through the practice of yoga and meditation. Their teachings served as an anchor and healing modality, creating a deep and radical shift spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. This shift in perspective inspired her to create a space for sharing what she learned with others.

In 2018, she combined her love of academics with personal and spiritual growth and launched her venture as a Soulpreneur and founded Grit and Grace Meditation, LLC.  Her journey to living her best life is ongoing. Over the years her interests have expanded her practices to include Sound Healing, Reiki, and working with Crystals. One of her deepest passions is working with sound as vibrational medicine, knowing that sound promotes deep relaxation and has the power to create, move and shift energy. She practices what she preaches, as she believes her line of work is more than a source of income -- it’s her soul's purpose!

Cheryl’s dream of taking what was once a part-time side-hustle, is now a reality as she works full-time as a holistic practitioner in Sedona, Arizona.  To connect with her you can visit her website at

I met Dr. Rubiales through her recovering from narcissistic abuse program and continued on to receive acupuncture sessions with her. I felt that Dr. Rubiales was so compassionate and understanding when I was in one of the worst times of my life, and she made me feel like she really cared about my well being beyond our appointments.

In times of turmoil, I would highly recommend Dr. Rubiales and her program to help you with the support and help you need to recover.
