"Burnout" - generally described as a state of emotional, mental and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress - became a real issue in the 20th century and continues to be a problem for many today. To help clients break out of the vicious cycle, luxury Italian health resort Alpina Dolomites has created a "Burnout Prevention Retreat", which can be booked between 14 October and 11 November 2012.
If you feel any of the classic signs of burnout, such as feeling drained all the time, an increase in niggling illnesses, de-motivation, feelings of failure and helplessness, procrastination, taking out your frustrations on others and loneliness, this retreat is for you. It will help you get your life back on track, recharging and recalibrating both body and mind.
The setting for the retreat could not be more impressive. Alpina Dolomites is located on the Alpe di Siusi, Europe's most beautiful and largest high-altitude plateau, where the air is so pure and pristine, guests feel the health benefits as soon as they arrive.
The retreat is led by Dr Petra Müller-Rupprecht, a specialist in psychosomatic medicine, psycho-analysis and homeopathy, who has been helping to guide clients through challenging times for over 20 years. Each client receives a personally-tailored plan for the duration of their stay, with treatments and activities taking place in the hotel's designer spa and medical centre as well as out in the spectacular nature that surrounds the hotel.
The main components of each plan include:
• Personal Coaching
• Holistic treatments
• Homeopathic support
• Indoor fitness (Gym Work, Water Aerobics, Yoga, Pilates)
• Outdoor fitness (Hiking in the Dolomites, Nordic Walking, Mountain Biking) Revitalizing and detoxifying food.
