The fast pace of modern life is affecting everyone. It is not just the stress but also decades of unhealthy lifestyles and bad eating habits that are causing so many health problems in the lives of so many people. More and more we are now considering detox as an option to lose weight, improve the functions of the body and thus gain energy and counter painful and debilitating ailments. There are several ways to detoxify our bodies including buying detox kits, seeing health practitioners, detoxing at home or going for detox retreats.
Detox retreats are the best option for most people. They are staffed by people that can offer expert help as they are run by dedicated teams with years of experience in treating clients form all types of countries, lifestyles and backgrounds. Thailand’s northern city of Chiang Mai offers an escape from the whirlwind pace of life. This is one of the places you should certainly add to your bucket list for a vacation if only for its wonderful location in the foothills of the Himalayas and its variety of flora, fauna, cultural and other attractions and activities. However, on top of all that there is a rich history of natural treatments and holistic approaches to wellbeing here. It is no surprise, therefore, to find many health resorts offering some of the best detox programs in the world. The trick is to find the right one for your needs.
Here are a few things to look for in a detox resort in Chiang Mai so you can shortlist the right one.
- The charges of the retreat often depend on the facility itself. A team of good professionals can run less expensive detox resorts if the focus is not necessarily on frills but on the quality of healthcare and wellness. There are spas that only focus on pampering you and there are detox resorts that focus on health and wellness. Adding in spa therapies to a detox program certainly can add value to the treatment but make sure you choose the right spa that offers the experience you are looking for.
- Look for detox resorts that also focus on a complete holistic approach to health and not just its physical attributes. If you are depressed and going through a phase of mental stress, therapists that are focused on the mind as well as the body may help you clear those emotional issues better and give you the support you need. You can then continue living a more healthy and enjoyable life when you leave the retreat.
- Resorts with inexperienced therapists and those that see a high turnover in staff will probably not be able to offering the best and most effective health and wellness programs. Inexperienced detox therapists might deprive you of getting the holistic attention you would have received from an expert. The levels of ability and experience varies and you should look for the best. Choosing a detox resort that has staff who have been there for some time may be the pointer to better service, advice and treatment.
Many reputed detox resorts now offer fantastic packages to help meet the ever-growing demand for good health by preventative therapies and better lifestyle choices. Considering the points raised here will certainly help you in choosing exactly what you need. Above all else look for reviews and take advice from people that have actually been there and have direct experience.
