Visit our new small Establishment – the Bee Therapy Lodge.

A real unique experience
A gentle touch of nature

Close to the Centre you find our Apiary “Bee Wise”. Here the Bee race of the region – Apis mellifera scutellata is happily thriving.
Here you can also enter into a small house which offers a home for some Bee colonies, but also the opportunity for visitors to make the experience with Apitherapy.

Resting or sleeping with Bees is an ancient way of treating oneself with Bees help.
As a kind of therapy it has different names: Bee therapy, sleeping above Bee hives, sleeping with Bees, sleeping on hive stove benches or simply Bee beds, ulleotherapy or uleterapia in Russia.
And it is more known in East Europe, especially Ukraine, also in China, Japan, Korea and Canada.

” I confess I could not resist and decided to try all the deligths of sleeping with bees. I lie on the hive and felt microvibration. It was a feeling that something like buzzing wires slightly pushes in the back.
Then I got dizzy from the smell of lime, buckwheat, propolis and I fell asleep. I slept for ten minutes, bit it felt like after a full night’s rest.
All accumulated fatigue over a week was gone. Problems receded into the backround.”
(Vladimir Megre from Russia, after a visit at one beekeeper who sleeps all summer with the Bees)

How could resting above some Bee Hives be a therapy?

There are a few factors combined which helps the human body:
– It’s the micro vibration created inside the Hive
This vibration is created by Bees fanning their wings above the
cells in order to evaporate the moisture from the nectar and to
create matured honey.
For the person placed above the hive it is like a light vibro-
massage which acts positively on the nervous, circulatory and
muscular system, inducing a state of self healing and balance.
– It’s breathing clean ionized air coming form the Hive
Clean and healthy air comes through a fine mesh on top of the
hives. It is said, that most microbes in bronchi and lungs are
killed during ten minutes of inhalation.
– It’s the aroma therapy created by the extracts of multiple
plants, mostly medicinal, that the Bees collect while foraging for
nectar and pollen.
The aromas of the nectar brought by the Bees, the smell of
honey and propolis, all create a special atmosphere, also
inducing the process of falling asleep.
– It’s the Bees buzzing sound which creates a state of relaxation
and triggers the self healing frequencies of the body.
Bee Therapy can help with:
– Respiratory disorders like: Asthma, Allergies a. o.
– Chronic headache
– High blood pressure
– Joint pain
– Insomnia
– Stress and depression

What’s the procedure?
Sleeping with Bees is recommended to people of all age.
In the southern hemisphere the Therapy can take place from September to the end of May, when the Bees are active.
The resting period on the Bee bed should be at least 1 hour, but there is nothing wrong, if a patient sleeps for longer.
A course consists of 10 sessions for positive effects on the whole body.

In properly constructed Bee Therapy Houses the natural behaviour of the Bees is not disturbed and people are protected from being stung.
Contraindications: Individual intolerance to Bees and Bee products. Mental disorders, exacerbation of chronic diseases.
