Wellness holidays are becoming more popular compared to traditional sightseeing & shopping holidays as people are recognizing the importance of taking care of their health as our society becomes more stressed, more polluted & our bodies suffer and become more susceptible to diseases.
Feeling stressed, tired, lethargic or in need of some pampering & rejuvenation? Then consider taking a wellness holiday for your next break. Wellness holidays such as Detox holidays, Spa Holidays & Yoga Holidays are becoming more popular than your traditional sightseeing & shopping holidays as people are starting to recognize the importance of taking care of themselves both mentally & physically especially as our society becomes more stressed, more polluted & our bodies suffer & become more susceptible to diseases such as H1N1.
Due to the effects of modernization our environment has become increasingly polluted with toxins and harmful substances. The air we breathe is polluted with emissions from cars, factories and cigarette smoke, the food we ingest is becoming more processed containing additives & chemicals, household & personal care products more often than not contain toxic chemicals.
The colon is like the natural sewerage system of your body and if these toxins in the colon build up over time, they putrefy, ferment and are absorbed through the porous walls into your bloodstream. These toxins can overload the organs of the body which can cause the gradual weakening of our immunity system leading to sickness, disease and accelerated aging. Symptoms such as weight gain, lack of energy, constipation/diarrhea, protruding abdomen, fatigue, allergies, and poor digestion could be signs that there are too much toxins in the body.
One thing we can do to help rid our body of these damaging substances and improve our immunity system is to undergo regular detoxification cleansing monthly, quarterly or yearly by simply taking a Detox holiday. A Detox holiday usually ranges from as little as 3 days to up to 14 days depending on individual preference. Detox holidays program vary from a juice fasting program to a raw foods program to a program where light meals are served. They usually consist of colon hydrotherapy or colema sessions, supplements, massages, yoga classes & broth soups providing a very comprehensive program to help the body cleanse itself. The key to a Detox program is to cleanse the colon & this can be done either through a self-administered colema or a colon hydrotherapy session whereby a gentle flow of water is used to flush the colon to remove built up toxins and intestinal “plague” facilitating a healthier colon and digestive system.
The benefits of a Detox are plenty such as weight loss, clearer & more radiant skin, improved blood circulation, increased metabolism, healthier digestion, regularity of bowel movements & improved energy levels. A Detox Holiday is definitely one where you will go away feeling that you have done something good for your body and your health!
Spa holidays provide a time for you to relax, pamper & re-energize yourself with massages, body treatments & healthy spa cuisine, an experience that will leave you feeling & looking renewed & revitalized. Due to our work schedule we hardly take the time to treat our bodies nicely or just relax. By going on a spa holiday you will be able to indulge yourself in a wide array of massages, facial treatments, body wraps & scrubs to give your body the attention it deserves. You will be spoilt for choice with the array of treatments out there such as Ayurvedic Treatments, Balinese Treatments, Thai Massages, Massages or treatments involving chocolate, gold, wine and even massages using jade pieces.
As more and more people realize the benefits of yoga affecting the body physically, mentally & emotionally yoga holidays are becoming popular where one can go on a holiday & yet continue practicing their yoga. These holidays are not just limited to yogis but also to the general beginner and usually comprise of 2 classes of yoga a day, spa cuisine meals, massages combined with some sightseeing or time on the beach.
