The Best Health Retreats for Weight Loss and Detoxing
Two things come hand in hand with our healthy holidays – the opportunity to lose weight on holiday and detox on holiday. Our body is the reflection of our lifestyle and, increasingly, our day to day lives are becoming more and more sedentary. The ease of the 21st Century is creating a laze of the human form and, in turn, this wreaks havoc with our weight management ideals.
We’ve selected the best health retreats to break away from the daily grind of immobility, stress and toxic foods. With these carefully crafted programmes you can start shedding those unwanted pounds, detoxifying the body, and generally paving the way for new habits and a new you. Embarking on one of our wellness retreats will leave you refreshed, reshaped, and revitalised.
