Functional medicine expert Mark Hyman, a senior advisor in the field for the Cleveland Clinic, has created a programme for RoseBar – the longevity club at Six Senses Ibiza.

He says: “This programme empowers individuals to take control of their health span, not just their lifespan, through cutting-edge practices and personalised guidance.”

Launching in April and available year-round, the seven-day Young Forever Detox programme will offer insights into Hyman’s Young Forever methodology of optimising health in collaboration with RoseBar’s own practitioners and modalities such as IV nutrition, cryotherapy and saunas.

It’s been designed to leave individuals feeling lighter, more energetic and younger and will include:

• Daily movement, meditation and spiritual practices

• Advanced longevity practices such as hormesis therapies and ozone, hyperbaric oxygen and hypoxia treatments

• And an anti-inflammatory, detox diet supported with supplements

Hyman, who’s also the chief medical officer at RoseBar, will lead digital seminars and then on 6-12 May will host a retreat in person.

Location: RoseBar Club at Six Senses Ibiza, Spain

Duration: Seven days

Cost: Starts at €4,800 (US$5,192, £4,106)

Spa haven unleashes scream therapy

Scream therapy is said to offer a cathartic outlet to release pent-up emotions and stress by letting out resounding, uninhibited cries in a therapeutic environment.

Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa in the UK has taken inspiration from this to create a new half-day journey. The experience includes a self-guided scream session on the estate grounds, a 55-minute face or body treatment and 4 hours’ access to spa facilities.

Lorela Movileano, spa manager, says: “While our spa offers relaxing treatments, there are moments when a more unconventional approach is called for. Within our sprawling 400 acres of private woodland, we’ve curated a haven where our guests can unapologetically release pent-up emotions.”

Location: Armathwaite Hall, Keswick, UK

Duration: Half a day

Cost: Weekdays £125 (US$157, €146), weekends £135 (US$170, €158)

Schloss Elmau taps into passion for dance

Dancing has a long history at the Bavarian destination spa and hotel Schloss Elmau. Johannes Muller – founder and philosopher – created the retreat as a sanctuary where guests could become aware of the true essence of their being by listening or dancing to classical music or gazing at the beauty of nature.

For 2024, the team is celebrating the art of dance with a new five-day retreat. Guests can immerse themselves in Schloss Elmau’s wellness facilities by day and join guided dance classes at night, ranging from the tango to the waltz.

The celebration of dance extends post-class with live bands or DJ sets where guests can come together and socialise.

Location: Schloss Elmau, Krün, Germany

Duration: Five days

Cost: €2,680 (US$178, £141) based on two people sharing
