The word ‘tipi’ comes from the Lakota language and is made up of two elements: thi, which means ‘to dwell in’ and pi, which means ‘they dwell’.
No temporary structure is more beautiful, more comfortable, more robust or more practical. The tipi is strong enough to withstand fierce storms and is capable of being a comfortable home all year round and we will definitely be making it a permanent spring/summer structure, so that our patients can truly enjoy the beauty of our surroundings.
We have our very own tipi here at PROMIS Hay Farm, situated next to our camp fire; patients can relax by the evening fire and take shelter in the relaxing tipi complete with comfy cushions.
Patients will also be enjoying the tipi for relaxing sessions of acupuncture, shiatsu massage and hot stones, making the whole experience completely tranquil.
