SHA Wellness Clinic

SHA Wellness Clinic

Spain, Europe

Hidden away in Spain’s Sierra Helada Mountains, this strikingly-cool minimalist jewel is considered one of the best medical spas in Europe. SHA was the brainchild of Alfredo Bataller Parietti; his vision was to open a clinic that could treat major illnesses with a perfect fusion of natural ancient Eastern philosophy and advanced cutting-edge Western techniques, alongside a healthy nutrition diet. 

There is a huge array of tailored programmes on offer as part of Sha’s Wellness Clinic, from Detox and Sleep Recovery to Fitness and Weight Loss. Each programme can help you to discover a healthy new lifestyle focused on improving your wellbeing through a series of natural therapies, healthy nutrition and a personalised fitness plan.

The clinic is home to various wellness units including the Sha Anti-Ageing medicine unit, designed to delay the ageing process and improve overall health. Other units include the Revitalising Medicine Cognitive Function Stimulation unit and the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine unit.

This is the European home of healthy nutrition (a diet focused largely on organic whole grains and vegetables), so expect healthy-eating throughout your stay. However, that’s not to say you won’t enjoy it. Chef Pablo Montoro (who trained at legendary restaurant El Bulli) ensures that dishes such as tuna tataki on mushroom risotto and chocolate cake sweetened with rice syrup, are as delicious as they are nutritious. You can even take classes in healthy nutrition cooking.


The Shamadi diet is based on the healing power of nature, accessed directly through food. Modern healthy nutrition dishes feature Mediterranean and Japanese fusion cuisine, prepared using the finest organic ingredients. Wherever possible, organic and locally grown seasonal foods are used at SHA.


SHA Wellness Clinic offers an impressive range of activities both within the resort and in the surrounding area to help make your time spent here even more rewarding. Take in the scenic beauty of the area with a cruise along the Guadalest reservoir, a bicycle ride along El Albir and Altea, or even opt for a helicopter tour along the coast if you’re feeling extra extravagant.

For those looking for something a little more active, there are plenty of options available to please you also. Perhaps opt for some water sports and go diving in the bay of Altea or jet-skiing on Jávea beach, or keep your feet planted firmly on land with a round of golf at one of the many golf courses in the area.

While many of these activities will incur an additional charge, there is also a wide range of SHA Wellness Academy Activities including talks, yoga, tai chi, walks, healthy cookery classes that are usually included in your programme.
