The best detox retreats: UK and abroad
A tailored detox can reboot health, jump-start flagging energy levels and – for busy Londoners juggling the demands of work, family and social life – create the space to reconnect with who you are and what you want.
An effective detox and wellness programme can do all manner of things: from helping to reduce the symptoms of stress, which cause harmful chemicals to build up in the body; to relieving the workload of internal organs and assisting in weight management – the list goes on. Although strict nutritional detoxes cannot themselves be sustained indefinitely, they are a great way to set up good habits that, if continued, can lead to a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Below are eight of the best wellness retreats in the world, offering nutritional programmes to nourish body and soul, alongside holistic practices and healing therapies.
