How long should my healing holiday be?
If you already have an idea of the trip you'd like to do, then you just have to think about how long it makes sense to go for.
When simply maintaining or boosting general health, there is no fixed recommended duration. A typical healthy short break can be anything from 2 – 4 nights whereas longer healing getaways can last at least 3-4 weeks, so it’s up to you!
When treating specific health issues, such as psoriasis or arthritis, the spa doctors tend to recommend a specific length of time (usually at least 2 weeks) to see any long-lasting results. This will vary depending on the severity of the illness and the type of therapy. In these cases, we really recommend following the advised length of stay for positive results.
