Sofie and her visit to the Océano Hotel
I am Sofie from Belgium (49 years). I have already been on wellness vacations, but this was detox and wellness together, a great combination! I had never done a detox treatment before and I had no experience with this at all. I think my health is very important, and I have a busy lifestyle. Furthermore, I have a slow bowel movement pattern, and it is known that bowel movements that remain in your body for a long time are actually "poisoned" - "toxic". I wanted to try this Mayr detox cure at the Océano Hotel in Tenerife, on one hand to clean my intestines on the other hand to relax.
Also for me this was the first time that I went alone on holiday, which I found quite scary. A friend of mine wanted to go, but at the end could not join me. Furthermore, I found it quite pricey, so I had high expectations. It feels like you (eg, a working mother) are egoistic, if you decide to do something like that alone. But I can only say that it was "very selfish" in a good way...
I enjoyed being helped in the decision process by the ladies of SIS. I received a lot of information by mail and it certainly convinced me to take the final step and book it.
The Océano Hotel was great! Friendly staff, very involved too. The doctors are there for you, but also the personal coach, the osteopath etc ... It is really a total package that you get, and everyone "cares" for you in all areas. The hotel is beautifully situated, overlooking (a wild - bustling) sea from the room, and the restaurant. The diet is adjusted according to your wishes (in my case, it was really not the intention for me to lose weight, I have a bit underweight, but really “to detox” without losing weight, and that is really taken into account). Have long walks, participated in the yoga, several times osteopath appointments to get my neck loose, delicious facial and pedicure, I enjoyed the swimming pool and sauna, but certainly also the peace ...
Also the regularity and structure that are brought into your day is a nice guide. You can easily adjust appointments and change to any other wishes. You can make there lovely walks, and go jogging in a beautiful surrounding.
I came home very well rested, with well-functioning intestines. My neck muscles were loose!
Since then I do daily yoga at home, and I have enrolled in a yoga club in the neighborhood. My intestines are still okay.
I also had a kind of wake-up call, I watched my busy life from a distance, and when I got home it was quite a big adjustment to go back to work at this speed. But after much thought I decided to keep this workload on hold for a while. Despite that fact, I do get up fifteen minutes earlier for my morning yoga, and insist that I have a lunch break. I also pay more attention to my sleep ...
Also with respect to our family I have noticed from a distance, and especially when I came back that there are quite a lot of tensions at home, tensions that demand a lot of energy, make me tired, and probably also stick to my neck. We are now working on this with our family. So, not without impact.
I can recommend the Mayr detox cure to anyone who seeks peace and quiet and puts his health first. Especially for people with a slow intestinal transit.
I have only been able to go for 1 week, and that is too short. Two weeks is definitely better. I have met people there who stay 4 to 6 weeks, I think that is quite long for myself (by the way, it is not possible with the work), but anyway 1 week is better than nothing, and I have done everything what I before had in mind!
