Serenity Escapes new mountain retreat holiday has all the right ingredients for a restorative getaway with Cryotherapy, meditation and yoga all included. Prices start from £999 per person for a three-night/four-day trip staying at the mountainside four-star Hotel Sliezsky Dom in a double room (with single occupancy and no single supplements) with flights from six UK airports (Heathrow, Stansted, Gatwick, Bristol, Liverpool and Edinburgh) and transfers, departing 4th October 2018 and 17th January 2019.

Cryotherapy, an extreme cold treatment that sees guests briefly plunged into an ice cold chamber, offers huge health benefits. Favoured by Victoria’s Secret models and celebrities such as Daniel Craig and Lindsay Lohan; it’s also popular with top footballers and athletes including Cristiano Ronaldo and Mo Farrah who use it as part of their regimes to speed recovery, reduce injuries, increase energy and improve sleep. The technology works by decreasing cell growth (cellular metabolism), inflammation and pain and by boosting cell survival. The -150°C treatment blast, reduces the skin temperature to around five degrees Celsius, triggering the release of endorphins and inducing the body’s natural pain relief system.
