Top 10 Luxury Detox Retreats in Europe

The body has a remarkable ability to rid itself of toxins, however, in today’s world, this is becoming more and more compromised, resulting in both physical and mental health-related problems. A detox retreat can be a great motivation for change and, if you go to the right place, you will have experts on hand to supervise and ensure the most effective detox for you. We have lots of great places to go to detox and a range of choices on exactly how to detox. For some only a fully medically-supervised detox will do, so the Mayr clinics, who contract exclusively with Healing Holidays only, are just the ticket. For others, the ancient purging through Ayurveda is the only one that will do, and we have some exceptional places which offer this in Europe. You may also opt for a gentle route to detox through deep body cleansing - this will allow you to pause, to reset and to breathe deep, learning new habits that will help you both physically and mentally. Whichever of the best wellness retreats in Europe that you choose will leave you feeling lighter, brighter and energised. Go as deep or as gentle as you like, and be confident that you will receive the very finest & unbiased advice.
