The Oktoberfest is over and winter sports season is about to start; the perfect time to do this ‘in between’ thing, that you’ve probably always wanted to do: Detox! Finally getting rid of all the bad stuff that’s been in there for so long. Cleanse your body, mind and soul and make this fresh and fruity reborn start.
So far I’ve never tried it, always hesitating to take that step and be soaked into this world of green juices, superfoods, therapies, self-healing powers, yoga and acupuncture while probably constantly craving for chocolate, coffee and ice-cream. Curious to find out more about it, I dived into this world of detox & spa hotels in Austria, Germany and South Tyrol. Must admit, quite tempting to try this major clean-up in these heavenly surroundings.
#1. Hotel Post Bezau, Bezau. Austria
Susanne Kaufmann is leading Hotel Post in Bezau into the fifth generation. Earlier she was intrigued by the effect of alpine flora of the Bregenz Forest in a modern way for beauty, health and wellbeing. Together with a team of pharmacists and dermatologists she developed her own product-line, with natural ingredients only and started the first Susanne Kaufmann Spa in Bezau, Bregenz Forest.
#2. VIVAMAYR Maria Wörth, Lake Wörthersee. Austria
VIVA MAYR is located on a charming small peninsula on the southern shores of beautiful Lake Wörthersee. The ideal setting for your spa according to modern FX Mayr Medicine.
#3. Ayurveda ParkSchlösschl, Traben/Trarbach. Germany
Everything is Ayurveda here. It’s the only 5-star luxury medical retreat in Europe which exclusively implements the Ayurvedic philosophy holistically.
#4. Lanserhof, Tegernsee. Germany
One of the most modern centers for health in Europe. Creating harmony for body and mind by using The LANS Med Concept, that’s based on Modern Mayr Medicine and the latest medical know-how.
#5. Adler Dolomiti, Val Gardena. South Tyrol
From modern western medicine to complementary and alternative healing methods, the ADLER MED medical competence centre has its own interdisciplinary team of doctors. They offer a variety of disciplines such as general medicine, laboratory medicine, aesthetic medicine, modern Mayr medicine, homeopathy, phytotherapy and dietology.
Obviously there is a lot more going on than detox and cleansing only. These spots are all selected by me, because of the total package they offer. You don’t necessarily have to participate in the health treatments. Simply enjoy the fine cuisine, superb spa facilities and fully equipped rooms, that’s more than fine too.
Go with the flow, relax & unwind….
