Do-it-yourself options

It’s easy enough to plan and book a health and wellness vacation. You could book yourself into an ashram in India, book a spa treatment at your local beauty or sports clinic, find a local masseuse for regular visits or better still organize your own home spa treatment. You don’t need a lot of equipment and there are plenty of books that can help you work out what you have to do. For example a simple steam bath can be perfected by placing your head over a bowl of hot water with a few aromatic herbs thrown in.

Another home treatment could be a luxury bath with candles and aromatic scents, putting on a facial mask made from natural ingredients, doing your own detox diet or even trying out new healthy meals with friends.
