Is a holistic retreat up your street?
It had been a very busy few months both at work and home and I was acutely aware of that tired feeling shortly after waking, the increased desire for sugar fixes during the day and my patience wearing a little thin and at the smaller things in life!
So a brief visit to the award winning health clinic, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz in Switzerland was most welcome - and it really did only take a couple of days to re-balance, rejuvenate and boost my energy levels.
It's a health and wellness resort in the most naturally stunning setting which is therapy for the senses in itself. Alpine mountains, bubbling streams and miles of green countryside, to soothe my soul.
My Spa Suite was a haven in itself, calming neutral colours with an abundance of luxurious detail from the Bose sound system, Swarskovski crystal chandeliers and an enormous bed with electronic settings for a firm, soft or medium mattress…..and of course my butler on call.
And then the treatments - specialising in water therapies using the natural mineral water from the surrounding mountains, which has healing and rejuvenating qualities. I spent fabulous times bathing in the cool and hot pools, Jacuzzis and steam rooms pre and post my bespoke Ayurvedic massages.
The therapists are second to none and obviously meticulously trained in the specialised treatments but more than that they are very intuitive and seemed to genuinely care that wellness was restored to my physical, mental and emotional state.
No surprise that I left feeling energised, calm and completely rejuvenated and ready to return to the real world! That after just 2 days, can you image what a week would do for me.
I'm already planning a visit for the new year!
