The Times LUXX - How a spa visit eased one man's long COVID symptoms

03/09/2021, The Times LUXX, Nick Love

Film director Nick Love a spa sceptic visited SHA Wellness Clinic and returned a changed man.

"I am lying on a bed in a nappy in a sterile room as a stout woman, who in another life could be an Olympian, is heading for me with a pipe in her hand. Moments later the pipe is inside me and I am being flushed clean. I fear that, with one false move, the white room will turn a different colour.

I have suffered post-Covid symptoms for several months. Feeling genuinely worried that the constant fatigue, respiratory problems and relentless brain fog would never end, I decided to visit SHA Wellness Clinic in Spain to trial a new post-Covid programme that claims to be able to reboot the system. (A pipe in the arse – colonic irrigation to the uninformed – is one of the more familiar ways to cleanse and reset the body.)

Intensely sceptical but desperate, I signed up to the seven-day programme. I imagined it would be like one of those German madhouses where they starve you while you hangrily climb the walls with foul fast-breath. But the macrobiotic-inspired food at SHA – despite being calorie-restricted and free of salt, sugar and animals – was surprisingly tasty."


Healing Holidays can arrange a seven-night post-Covid programme at SHA from £3,549 per person sharing, including British Airways flights, transfers, full-board accommodation and treatments.
