Knowledgeable experience with well trained employees! H.D – Germany

Yes, I am satisfied with SHA. It is a good place for detoxing & weight loss! mr Waleed, Kuwait

It was a great and wonderful experience, giving me both rest and new energies and all this combined with a more than welcome but not "hard to get" weight loss. Elisabeth, Austria

I returned home safe and sound and above all very happy from SHA Wellness Clinic! I even found more than I expected at SHA and I am very impressed! It was a journey to myself, where I got to know lovely people and learned a lot. It was so nice that I will definitely go back and thus we remain in contact! One should perhaps point out that for some programs it might be better to reserve additional treatments in advance: for example, the foot reflexology massage. This treatment is so popular that there is a waiting list. Thank you so much for everything!!!!!!

I had a fantastic time at SHA, it was definitely the right choice. I arrived at SHA feeling depleted of energy, very tired, sluggish and carrying extra weight. I left feeling rejuvenated, full of energy and lighter. What makes SHA so exceptional is the staff. They put 100% into everything they do, from the waiting staff, to the guest relations, nursing etc. The people make it what it is.
