Wash away your worries with a little TLC
f you’ve been burning the candle at both ends lately, then how about treating yourself to a bit of TLC? At Seaham Hall in County Durham, for example, you can reinvigorate your body in the expansive Serenity spa. Inside you’ll find Oriental interiors that create an immediate bubble of calm – ensuring that all thoughts of home melt away before you even think about wading into the ozone-cleansed pool, or limbering up for an Iyengar yoga class.
Or perhaps Pilates is more your bag? If so, then how about trying a personal training session and 25-minute posture analysis at Ragdale Hall in Leicestershire? This rather splendid country house health spa is about more than just fancy beauty products (although they’ve got plenty of those, too). There’s an extensive treatment list to try out, and a team of hypnotherapy, acupuncture and Reiki experts on hand to help shape a new “you”.
Alternatively, if you’re feeling the need to completely detox, detune and reflect, then why not enrol on one of Fiona Arrigo’s detoxifying retreats.These one-on-one sessions take place in Fiona’s remote Somerset farm, and use a combination of massage, meditation, nutrition and yoga to help ease stress and gain new direction. Not only that but you get to relax in front of the farm’s open fires, too, with a housekeeper on hand to see to all your culinary needs. Now that definitely makes a change.
