Seasonal cuisine in Suzhou

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) incorporates meals based on seasonal produce as a way of improving gut health and nutrition. At Sangha Retreat by Octave Institute, just an hour-long train ride from Shanghai, the Seasonal Gut Management programme targets issues that often arise from an unhealthy digestive system, such as allergies, fatigue and a weak immune system. The three- or six-night retreat includes a consultation with a TCM doctor, an integrated wellness assessment, as well as healthy meals, cooking classes and guided meditation sessions.
