Call Cindy at 503 658-5646 the Wellness Tourism Specialist at C.P. Trips for your next wellness vacation/holiday - a wellness travel experience powered by a wellness-focused intention. This is typically self-directed with the traveler setting your own timetable and schedule. This will include: a Wellness Retreat, a guided, intention-driven,multi-day program with a set or semi-set schedule, and hosted by one or more facilitators.
- This program may include learning and lifestyle workshops - such as meditation and healthy eating, as well as fitness activities such as yoga, nature walks, hiking.
- A smaller facility with accommodations and hospitality services and where the primary purpose is to provide programs and experiences for the wellness traveler. The facility may have fewer wellness activities, services and facilities than a wellness resort.
Today the emphasis in the wellness tourism industry has been taken off the spa aspect, because, while a spa can be an important part of a wellness vacation, it is not absolutely necessary, It depends on individual preference. The Wellness today is more holistic, encompassing our emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual needs. Wellness is achieving our full potential and embraces mental and physical wellbeing as well as the wellness of our environment.
