What is a Detox Spa Retreat?

Spa Index Detox Spas and ProgramsA Detox Spa or Retreat is a facility which has developed and encourages guests to follow either a “Detox Diet” or dietary plan (e.g., unprocessed or raw food, or the juice of fruits and vegetables only, or vegetarian diets, typically all with the elimination of sugar, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol) which the facility’s directors believe will have detoxifying effects.  Detox Spas often offer colon hydrotherapy (colonics) and/or hydrotherapy to aid in a “body cleanse.”©    Tip: We believe great care, advance study, and medical advice from a physician should be undertaken by guests before considering following a Detox Diet for any period of time.
