Where to Get Your Wellness On

Christine Drinan, Founder


In the wellness theme, but this time, with all the frills possible, is a place anyone who is into health, should go at least once. Though we can (almost) guarantee that you’ll want to return again and again. If not for their real impact integrative health programs, it’s for you to sit in luxury at a wellness center for a few days. Here’s where to get your wellness on.

A Luxury Medical Wellness Center Retreat

SHA Wellness is the holistic wellness clinic, that you didn’t know that you needed in your life. It’s where the Type A without serious problems (we’re talking cancer, car accidents etc) come to fine tune or even overhaul their health. Think of it as a wellness center for “normal” people, where normal are CEOs, consultants, lawyers and anyone who works hard in life. That seems to be the common thread amongst the guests, who are high performers cut from the same cloth.

With these types of guests, expect that SHA is not a wellness light, have a few glasses of rose with lunch. Instead, it’s a real medical-grade center. People stay commonly for two weeks, or even a month or longer. Once guest on a recent visit was there for two months, to start his weight loss of 40+ pounds. The program is strict while also enjoyable. You feel in many ways like you’re in summer camp for adults, but with nicer rooms and excellent food.

A Typical Day

For those who like the variety, that’s your typical day at SHA. They keep you busy from about 8:00am until 7:00pm at night. Your job is wellness while you’re at SHA. Here’s a snapshot of what a typical Day 1 and Day 2 will look like on their weight loss program at SHA’s wellness center.

What Results to Expect

The results you get, depend on how dramatically different the routine at SHA is from your regular daily exercise and eating habits. If you survive on Shake Shack and evening steakhouse dinners for work, this will be a shock to your system. Mostly because there’s no meat, just occasional fish on the menu, and you have a personal trainer who holds you accountable. And you know what they say – weight loss is 80% of what you eat and 20% of what you do. You will see dramatic results if you don’t regularly eat well or exercise at this wellness center.

For those of you who don’t smoke, drink, eat meat and are on a clean diet, you may not see a big change on the scale. Your portions are healthier and optimized by a nutritionist so you’ll see a few excess pounds everyone can shed come off. But you’ll quickly learn that it’s not about the scale. You will have improved muscle mass, lose fat and you will feel healthier. Also you’ll look at food and mealtimes differently, and learn to savor each bite versus scarfing down your meal at your computer. The meals are interesting at SHA, in that you’re not encouraged to sit for three hours. Instead, it’s about mindful eating and not drinking. If you’re on any of the SHA programs, there is no alcohol, though for those not on a program, there’s vino to be had. But besides that, it’s almost impossible not to come to SHA and feel healthier both physically and mentally when you leave. That’s why most of the clients are repeat, year after year.
