Welcome to the first macrobiotic clinic in the world! At the Mediterranean Albir Beach in the middle of the Serra Gelada Mountains, there exists a natural retreat called the Sha Wellness Clinic where the old oriental practices blend with the cutting-edge western ways for ensuring personal welfare. The owner Alberto Bataller made this one for sharing the priceless philosophy of the macrobiotics for health benefits. He believes that when spirit, mind, and body are in synchronization, it brings health as well as happiness only after which one can realize its true potential.
At the Sha Wellness Clinic, the guests souls, body, and mind are thoroughly cherished via the therapeutic pools, plummeting waters, dedicated zones of relaxation, and the healing forces of natural therapies including the most impactful modern macrobiotic elements of nutrition. All these are organized by some of the most prominent world leaders along with modern macrobiotic expert named Michio Kushi. He is the Chair of the World Federation of Natural Alternative Medicine, the father of modern macrobiotics, and Director of Natural Therapies here. Among the therapies, there exists a myriad of options like acupuncture, yoga, Tai Chai, shiatsu, qigong/chi kung, physiotherapy, reflexology, watsu, laughter therapy, Reiki, and moxibustion.
The Sha Wellness Clinic is famous also for its dedication in the field of healthy ageing. Here, you can really slow down the pace of your ageing process. Check out for the Sleep and Tobacco units here where a mix of old as well as modern techniques makes you attain a great success. The clinic is divided into the Metodo SHA, the aesthetic medicine unit, and the anti-ageing medicine unit. The first one prefers a blend of macrobiotic cuisine and natural therapies, while second one focuses on the advanced techniques for anti-aging treatments. The last one lays emphasis on non-invasive treatments for optimum wellness.
The complex of Sha Wellness Clinic holds five independent edifices of amazing patterns linked via the walkways as well as bridges. Overall, in these buildings, there are some 93 suites of different sizes. Guests love the spacious pools, Zen gardens offering many relaxation zones, waterfalls, and Mediterranean as well as tropical gardens where the art of living fulfills the clinic’s aim. In a room where I stayed, there was a wonderful bathroom equipped with the L`Occitane products, TV, a comfortable bed, Internet, and an airy terrace offering some breathtaking vistas.
Coming to its cuisine, expect the healthiest one! It goes without saying that the cuisine is organic as well as macrobiotic. Thanks to Pablo Montoro who is the Chef using a range of organic products as per the instructions given by the medicine and nutritional therapists, which makes the meal a far effective source of health. I specially loved apple crunch and biscuit crumbs.
