The Hormone Panel – For a full body rebalance:

Guests looking to level out their hormones levels which may be out of balance and in need of a reset after the challenging and stressful past years of the pandemic can do so at RAKxa with the special Hormone Panel treatment. RAKxa’s professional team of doctors can recommend extensive lifestyle changes, supplements and for an even more in-depth rebalance; bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be explored.

Bioidentical hormone replacement uses man-made hormones that are very similar to the hormones produced by the human body thereby matching guests own hormones such as DHEA, oestrogen, testosterone, and progestogens. Women especially can relate to hormones being out of sync due to several factors such as stress, irritability, and cravings from the effects of menstrual cycle and menopause, so this treatment is perfect to leave guests feeling refreshed, anew, and stable. These bioidentical hormones are more natural and match the chemical structure of the ones produced by guests own bodies.

Empowering Female Transformative Experience – For a youthful uplift
