Full details of this prize

Experience a globally renowned Detox programme at SHA Wellness Clinic, a pioneer of integrated medical and holistic wellness and one of the world’s leading health and well-being centers, courtesy of Healing Holidays. Finding sanctuary within Spain’s Sierra Helada Natural Park and the Bay of Altea, lucky winners will be treated to SHA’s signature Detox Programme, which is renowned for its transformative effects, cleansing the body of toxins (accumulated from poor diet, high stress levels and exposure to pollution, as well as excessive amounts of coffee and alcohol) and ascertaining the body’s level of oxidative stress. To address this, lucky prize-winners will be treated to a seven-night programme, which pivots on SHA’s 360-Degree Method: combining natural therapies with expert medical and nutritional consultations and pioneering treatments. Highlight techniques used to aid the detox process include: cryotherapy sessions, lymphatic drainage, traditional Chinese medicine, seaweed wraps and ginger therapeutic compression sessions.

Guests will also have access to two pioneering treatments from SHA’s Cognitive Development Unit, led by Dr. Bruno Ribeiro, including Transcranial Current Stimulation and Brain Photobiomodulation treatments. These pioneering, painless and non-invasive cognitive stimulation therapies focused on cognitive empowerment to treat neurological and psychological diseases such as depression and anxiety, as well as high stress levels. During their stay, guests will also have access to SHA’s Hydrotherapy Circuit (complete with sauna, Roman baths, Turkish baths, cold plunge pool, hydrotherapy pool, lap lane, foot baths, bithermal showers, ice fountain and therapeutic water jets) and group activities from SHA’s Healthy Living Academy (including talks, holistic activities, training and physical conditioning sessions, walks and healthy cooking classes).

Accommodation at the resort

To top the prize off, winners will be accommodated in one of the sleek and sophisticated SHA Residences, offering them the SHA experience in total luxury. The SHA Residences draw on the principles of Feng Shui and were sustainably designed with technologies that actively contribute to guests’ wellbeing and include a private garden, terrace and glass infinity pool.

The Feng Shui is impeccable
