Lately I have realised that I have strayed from the original intention for this blog. My plan for this blog was to provide information from my experience of solo travel and spa reviews to women.
To fix this, I am going to back track a little bit, and discuss the spa adventures from 2018, that I forgot to mention in 2018.
SHA Wellness Clinic in Alacante, Spain was my first Spa wellness centre experience. This was diving in at the deep end!
The SHA method integrates natural therapies and nutrition with Western medicine. The specialise in preventive medicine, genetics and anti-aging. The fusion of these therapies enhances the positive impact for the client.
I booked a 4-day discovery course and learned a lot of how a well a facility like this can work and provide its patrons. My room was a suite of huge proportions that included a living area, bedroom, two baths a walk-in closet. I also had a large patio with mountain and ocean views. The room was bliss.
Each day the room was refreshed with bottles of drinking water, teas and fruit. Every evening there was a card with supportive poetry included with my turn down service.
There are many different programs to choose from. Fitness and diet, weight loss, detox and life-resets are a few of the programs they have on offer.
Upon arrival, one visits with a program specialist, who arranges the treatments. They discuss your goals and what you need to do to achieve them. I went into the clinic with no set goals other than to chill and enjoy myself, which is exactly what I did.
I had some lovely treatments. The one I remember most vividly was a combination salt scrub, and mud wrap. I was then confined inside a floatation device. It was hot, uncomfortable and I could not escape. When time was up, I was then taken out and power washed, naked, by a man with a hose. While this was mucho embarrassing, my skin afterward was amazing!
You also meet with a doctor, who takes your vitals and determines that you are a safe candidate for the programs.
While at that meeting, you choose which diet you would like to follow. The food was beautifully prepared, served to you by the same person each day. This person knew which menu you had signed up for and would know what you should or should not be eating. Meals were at an assigned time each day, taking the stress of planning out of the equation.
I loved my time at SHA Wellness Clinic and would go back for a longer program. As I was there for four days I focused on my treatments and did not have the opportunity to explore the area.
