Holistic therapy and yoga holidays ‘more popular now’

Stressed out British people are increasingly turning towards holidays on which they can indulge in holistic treatments such as aromatherapy.

This is according to Krissy Roe of responsibletravel.com, who said that the credit crunch and fears of problems at work are leading people to seek trips on which they can really chill out – and a spa in a far-off country just fits the bill.

“Holistic holidays give you the chance to get away from it all and rejuvenate. There are more [such] holidays being offered out there. It’s not such a niche market anymore,” she commented, adding that they are no longer just for the rich and famous.

Figures released recently by the same organisation back up Ms Roe’s comments – interest in holistic and wellbeing holidays went up by 121 per cent from 2007 to 2008.

Kate Moss is one familiar face who recently enjoyed a relaxing spa break in Thailand.

The supermodel, who turned 35 this week, enjoyed Christmas at a luxury resort in the south Asian country with her daughter and fiance.

Meanwhile, one guest who is apparently enjoying her holiday a little too much is Amy Winehouse.

The singer is currently in St Lucia and has infuriated other guests with her loud behaviour and allegedly drunken antics, various newspapers have reported.
