Considered one of the best medical spas in Europe, the SHA Wellness Clinic aims to improve and maintain guests’ mental and physical wellbeing by blending ancient Eastern philosophies with contemporary Western techniques. Most of its day-long programmes include a serving of healthy gourmet food alongside various treatments. The Renovating Day programme includes a shiatsu or reiki massage, a pure oxygen session, a revitalising wrap and a session in its hydrotherapy area, in the Turkish bath or bithermal showers. There is a choice of traditional Chinese therapies, including acupuncture; or spa-goers can focus on a specific area such as cellulite – eliminating the skin’s orange-peel appearance with ultrasound or presotherapy.
