How European Wellness Holidays Improve Women’s Health
Women need to make time for their mental and physical well-being. Wellness holidays are a great way to unwind and improve your health. See how here.
Times are changing when it comes to healthcare.
The global health and wellness industry has grown to three times the size of the pharmaceutical industry.
What’s all the fuss about holistic healthcare and wellness?
Read on to find out about the health benefits of wellness holidays and what they have to offer you.
Why Choose Europe for Your Wellness Holidays?
Since the time of the ancient Romans and their hot spa baths, Europeans have embraced the idea of a holistic approach to wellness.
As such, Europe is at the forefront of the wellness industry. All the latest high-tech treatments are available at European wellness retreats.
Added to this you can indulge in ancient methods of holistic treatment that have been working wonders for centuries.
The European countryside provides a beautifully relaxing backdrop for wellness retreats year round.
The landscapes change from snowy winter wonderlands to the colourful hues of autumn, spring and summer – each one even better than the one before.
What’s more, wellness holidays in Europe easily translate into a sightseeing extravaganza of touristic activities, beach holidays or skiing trips.
These are some of the health benefits you can look forward to during your European wellness holiday.
1. Detox the Right Way
Most of us are familiar with detox diets which come in the form of abstaining from the foods we love for days on end. We’ve tried and we’ve failed.
Going the detox route on your own inevitably results in failure and frustration. The methods are hard to stick to and just don’t fit in with daily life.
Escaping to a beautiful European destination removes all the daily obstacles from a successful detox program. This leaves you free to focus on your wellbeing.
Wellness holidays provide the perfect scenario for a managed detox that is safe as well as effective.
Some of the benefits of a detox break include:
- Decreased toxins and heavy metals in the body
- Improved liver and digestive function
- Boosting your immune system
- Reduced susceptibility to allergies
A properly managed detoxification program in relaxed surroundings is far superior to any DIY you’ve ever tried. Also, it works the first time.
2. Stress Relief
No amount of anti-stress medication can compare to the wonderful benefits of just taking it easy on wellness holidays.
In addition, relaxing treatments and activities include walks, yoga, swimming, Tai chi, full body massages, breathing and mindfulness techniques.
Lowered stress levels reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. You will also be able to cope better with the curve balls that life throws at you.
3. Healthy Ageing and Preventative Care
Less stress helps you to avoid serious health issues which in turn means a longer lifespan.
Wellness holidays also offer treatments specifically aimed at helping you to grow old gracefully.
Specialized skin treatments, non-surgical facelifts, exfoliation, peels and personal skin care advice will help slow down your skin’s aging process.
4. Boost Your Confidence
Pampering therapies such as full body massages and facial treatments will have you looking and feeling like a million bucks in no time.
Manicures, pedicures and waxing treatments add the final touches to have you looking your best.
Taking care of your external appearance increases your confidence, which in turn improves your ability to succeed in life.
5. Sleep Therapy
During wellness holidays you will sleep peacefully and undisturbed in your luxurious surroundings. The day’s activities are bound to tire you out.
Professional sleep therapists can help to soothe away the ravages of existing sleep deprivation too.
These may include Reiki, massage, acupuncture, and reflexology.
Effective sleep helps your body to heal but it also regulates your blood sugar levels. This can spare you the agonies of heart disease, heart attacks, diabetes, and obesity.
6. Pain Relief
Physiotherapy, acupuncture, sports massages and reflexology are available at many wellness destinations. These can help to soothe the aches of old injuries and relieve strain.
During wellness holidays, expert therapists will know just the trick to relieve those nagging aches and pains.
They will also be able to tell you how to prevent these problems from cropping up in future with advice on posture and exercise.
A pain-free existence is within your reach without unhealthy painkillers or surgery.
Many recurring afflictions can be treated with corrective and preventative wellness measures.
7. Health and Fitness
During your wellness holiday, the days will be filled with energising activities that help to make you fitter at your pace.
Gentle walks, yoga, swimming, and Pilates, as well as boxing and circuit training, can inspire you to take up a new hobby when you return home.
The best part of exercise on a retreat is that it takes place in a secure and comfortable environment where your first efforts can take place in private.
Upon your return home, you will finally have the confidence to hit the gym.
Exercise is one of the most important ways to live longer and is good for every part of your body, including your mind.
8. Weight Loss and Healthy Eating Habits
Gone are the days when wellness holidays meant lettuce leaves and water at mealtimes.
Now you are treated to gourmet style, freshly-prepared meals which are guaranteed to smooth your path to weight loss.
Expert chefs and nutritionists will work with you to compile a healthy eating plan for everyday life. In that way, your whole family gets to benefit from your stay.
Like exercise, your diet affects every aspect of your existence. Losing excess weight decreases your chances of heart disease, stroke, and obesity-related cancer.
