The pandemic has left many people battered and bruised, both mentally and physically. BodyHoliday St. Lucia, recently voted the best spa in the Caribbean and amongst the top 10 worldwide by Conde Nast Travellers’ readers, has the perfect antidote: four new programmes to address the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic; be it anxiety and stress from lockdown, relationship issues, work fatigue or physical effects of the virus, the experts at the Wellness Centre will kickstart guests’ journeys to optimising their lives during this challenging time.
The following programmes have been designed to complement the BodyHoliday experience, focusing on the guests’ unique goals.
1. Wellness Rehabilitation Programme:
A 360-degree programme has been designed as a journey for those seeking restoration and rehabilitation after a tumultuous year of 2020. Guests will have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in all aspects of the four pillars of wellbeing that incorporate relaxation, fitness, holistic nutrition (for mind, body and soul) and restoration.
Guests will have dedicated consultations with a single practitioner to guide them through their highly personalised programme, from pre-arrival to arrival, mid-programme check-in and post-departure to maximise long-term results. Activities and treatments include everything from ocean swimming and bike rides, through to personal box fit, pilates, tai chi, meditation, Ayurvedic treatments, chanting, Bhutanese healing and osteopathy; all dependent on the guest’s goals.
The programme can be undertaken for 5, 7, 14 or 21 day retreats and costs from $325 USD per person, with savings of up to 25%.
2. COVID Convalescence Programme:
This specially designed, non-medical programme is unique for the growing number of people who are Covid recoverees, many of whom will have been asymptomatic or had the virus in a mild form. The programme targets and strengthens the respiratory system to aid recovery and general respiratory health.
This fully immersive programme is supported throughout by the world-class dedicated practitioner team. As well as guiding guests throughout the journey, they will also receive a pre-arrival online consultation, an alignment consultation on arrival and a departure consultation.
Recommended as a 5 days retreat plan, with treatments including meditation, yoga and Reiki through to Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), hypnotherapy and osteopathy. Cost: $800 USD per person.
3. Boost Your Immunity Programme:
A focus on prevention over cure, this programme looks at ways to boost immunity, focusing on mental wellbeing, nutrition and fitness, including holistic metaphysical approaches. As well as helping with the impact of the current pandemic, this will also benefit those preparing for endurance fitness events and optimal wellbeing.
With a foundation on restoration, fitness and holistic nutrition, this is a 5 day programme including a pre-arrival and departure consultation. Cost: $800 USD per person.
4. Corporate Wellbeing Programme:
With the ever-increasing stresses of everyday life, this programme is designed for corporate executives who are burnt out and immensely challenged by the impact of the downturn in the economy during 2020. This programme curates personalised packages with a strong focus on mental wellbeing and can be offered on an individual basis or collectively for colleagues to experience together.
This is the perfect solution for companies to ensure their executives wellbeing is rebalanced and restored in 2021 and group retreats can also be arranged to help teams reconnect after a year of disconnection and zoom meetings.
This is a 5 days retreat where guests will have a programme specific to them discussed during their pre-arrival consultation combining nine different elements based around fitness, holistic nutrition and restoration. The programme completes by discussing the long-term continuation through a departure consultation and de-brief. Costs: $800 USD per person.
