Amidst the magical landscape of the Spanish nature park Sierra Helada lies the SHA Wellness Clinic. An extraordinary paradise at the service of health, beauty and well-being. Here the thousand-year-old techniques of the Orient combine with the innovative discoveries of Western medicine to form a harmonious unit.
The SHA Wellness Clinic is an impressive sight. This applies both to its wonderful location near the picturesque town of Altea, with a view of the coast of Albir, as well as to its unusual design. With this residence the architect Carlos Gilardi has created a fascinating and graceful complex. A wonderful idyll, perfect for holistic revitalisation.
The SHA Wellness Clinic was born from the personal experience of Alfredo Bataller Parietti, who had suffered from many health problems that had affected his quality of life for many years. While facing a worrying diagnosis, he was lucky enough to meet a doctor who was a leading expert in nutrition and natural therapies. Having experienced the organism’s auto-healing power through these natural therapies and a healthy diet, Mr. Bataller decided to look into the origin and magnitude of this knowledge. Mr. Bataller created his dream of building a unique place, where ancient eastern techniques would be fused with the latest western medical advances with the aim being to benefit health, well-being and beauty: the SHA Wellness Clinic.
Who does not dream of feeling more active, healthier, more balanced and younger? This dream comes true at the SHA Wellness Clinic. SHA methods are based on the view that every illness is the result of an imbalance between body and soul – and is treatable through activation of self-healing energies. Guests undergo a medical check-up on arrival to determine their individual nutritional and health programme. Acupuncture, shiatsu, yoga, chi-kung, tai-chi, watsu, physiotherapy, reflexology, moxibustion and reiki, are some of the therapies SHA Wellness Clinic offers.
Macrobiotic diet has helped thousands of people to discover a simple and natural way to rebuild their health after a serious illness. All this is achieved by modern nutritional research, which includes the collected wisdom over thousands of years in countries where people enjoy the longest life in the world. The modern macrobiotic offers a wide variety of dishes, tailored to individual needs. They are prepared by top chefs of the haute cuisine.
The healthy aging treatments do not promise eternal youth. The purpose of the Healthy-Aging Area is to slow down the aging process and reactivate the potential for health in each and every person. The professionals, after performing some tests prior to the consultation, recommend a personalized treatment stimulating and reconstructing, in a natural manner, the different processes and metabolic systems of your body. They put the greatest scientific advances at your service in order to prevent premature ageing and gain quality of life. In addition, SHA’s Aesthetic medicine area offers some of the most advanced techniques, which prove results following extensive research works of investigation and are endorsed by major international scientific societies. These are treatments bound by the SHA philosophy: minimally invasive and with excellent results, permitting an immediate return to normal activities.
A healthier life, weight reduction or smoking cessation are just some of the numerous possibilities of the program. Success does not, of course, start from now on. For each program one should take at least one week, perfect is a 14-day stay. The guests of the SHA Wellness Clinic experience and learn a completely new lifestyle - a physical, psychological and spiritual metamorphosis.
