Wellness in Brussels

So spa, so good!

Serendip, ancient name of Sri Lanka, is the origin of the word serendipity, which means ‘to make fortunate and unexpected discoveries guided by your inner wisdom and your intuitions.’

OK, so far so good. And it gets better - on 12 December 2012 at 12:12, wellness centre Serendip Spa, at Brussels’ Place Stephanie, unveiled its new look and feel in the wake of recently being taken over by long-time customers.

Detox in beautiful Biarritz

If anyone’s body and looks need a kickstart after the festive season then it’s those of our editor Tony Mallett. Here, he talks to the owner of a brilliant detox centre in sunny Biarritz

So, the annual excesses of Christmas and New Year have been left behind – or have they? The pounding even the most restrained of us give our bodies over the festive period, allied with the extra stress, and often followed by the January ‘blues’, will all show on the outside. As for the least restrained of us, such as this writer, well the mirror has a cover over it till March. Whether we mean to or not, during December many of us get toxed-up to the max and head back to our jobs and daily routine in January thinking: ‘Well, maybe a sauna and a new haircut will perk me up’. They might well do that but, let’s face it, they’re rarely enough. Hit-and-miss resolutions aside, the early part of the year is the perfect time to cleanse the body and a full detox in expert hands and gorgeous, uplifting surroundings will drastically alter the way you look and feel for the better in just a few days.
