We show you three ways to carry out your wellness travel plans in Samui!
Packed with a myriad of must-dos, to-dos and will-dos, our daily routine often involves no fair amount of rush and bustle. Therefore, when it comes to taking a well-deserved travel break, it is time to hit the ‘pause’ button on your personal remote control, and to embark on a vacation that allows you to slow down, smell the roses and to recharge yourself fully before resuming your usual routine.
There are several ways in which we can unwind and rejuvenate ourselves. You may decide to relieve your daily stresses by engaging in phyical activities, or by undergoing a cleansing detox diet. Proponents of holistic healing systems will tell you that you that the mind and body are intertwined – you cannot heal the body without healing the mind.
