But what is detoxing? Particularly in the winter months you can feel lethargic, your hair and nails can look dull and lifeless and you can feel as though you want to crawl into a hole and hibernate. This feeling can be due to a lack of vitamins and an excess of toxins in the body. The body naturally cleanses the body of toxins but it can be aided by a "spring clean" every so often. Following a detox programme will help you feel more in harmony with, and more in control of, your body, give you an energy boost, and can help you on the way to sustainable weightloss. Detox programmes can vary greatly in extremity, from versions which consist only of consuming water and fresh fruit juices, to versions which simply cut out foods high in fats, salt and sugar, as well as meat, dairy, wheat, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods. Through adding cleansing and firming massages and packs to your detox nutrition plan, you will be well on your way to a lighter, happier, cleansed you! However, if this all seems a bit too much like hard work, you could always combine a detox programme with a luxury spa holiday…
The Adler Thermae Spa Resort in the heart of Tuscany is the perfect place to detox and enjoy a relaxing, culturally rich holiday. The Adler Spa Resorts have developed their own "Adler Balance" concept which aims to rebalance body and mind through the implementation of the 5 "Stepping Stones". Diagnosis, special treatments, diet, inner wellbeing and exercise ensure body and mind are well cared for, cleansed and re-energised.
The highly professional staff will accompany you as you make your way over the five stepping stones with a variety of treatments and training sessions. Every programme begins and ends with a medical check-up to specify exactly how to treat your individual needs. A nutrition plan will be put together for you to follow for the duration of your stay and will be complemented by natural food supplements. To further aid the flushing out of toxins, you will be treated with massages, footbaths, and algae packs as well as treatments to cleanse the digestive system. All spa treatments use Adler Spa Organic Cosmetics which are made only from 100% natural products, contain no preservatives or chemical dyes, and are particularly gentle on the skin. To complete your luxurious detox programme you will take part in breathing and meditation classes, as well as one-on-one training sessions to bring greater harmony between body, mind and soul.
With treatments and classes taking approximately 3 hours a day, you will still have plenty of time to immerse yourself in the thermal waters, spa, Tuscan culture, and to simply recover from the stress and excitement of the festive season. So what are you waiting for? Escape to the beautiful countryside of Tuscany and cleanse, purify and re-energise yourself for the perfect start to 2010!
