- Created: 31 October 2018 31 October 2018
With so many retreats to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which retreats are truly authentic. Here at Health and Fitness Travel we have spent years trying, testing and researching all kinds of wellness escapes from Ayurvedic and mindfulness to yoga and digital detox to decipher which retreats are the most trustworthy. Thankfully, we can assure our clients that during any one of our healthy holidays, they will have the time to rest, focus on themselves and release any built-up stress causing mental exhaustion. Under the guidance of highly trained wellness experts, guests can feel assured that they will leave their holiday with the mental clarity and sense of purpose they’ve been searching for. So, without further ado, here are 6 authentic wellness retreats that are loved and trusted by us.
For Anxiety: Life Reset at SHA Wellness Clinic
If you suffer from anxiety, then you are no stranger to feelings of unease such as worry or fear. On the Life Reset programme, experience an emotional healing retreat that will attend to your personal needs so that you can recover your lost vitality with a medical approach that has earned the spa its status as one of the best in the world. You will be introduced to the programme with a series of consultations and medical examinations which will help to see if your mental struggles are perhaps linked to something more biological. Through these tests, the clinic can assess how best to help you clear your mind so that you can feel calm, stress-free and ready to make for some long-lasting changes.

For Anger Management: Awareness at Amanpuri
If you’re feeling discouraged and unable to cope with your anger, then the Awareness programme at Amanpuri in Thailand is the retreat for you. Employing a range of anti-stress techniques including meditation, mind training and Reiki, it’s a fantastic de-stress retreat that helps to relax your mind by encouraging you to focus on the sensations of your body. The practice of mindfulness for example encourages you to focus on the present and zoom in on sensations such as breath which offers a proven technique to employ when you feel as though your anger might get the better of you.
