Sha Wellness Clinic's latest programme targets those suffering with long-term symptoms of COVID-19 – a syndrome clinically referred to as long-COVID.

The minimum seven-night retreat at Sha’s flagship in Alicante has been developed to treat persistent symptoms and help guests return to full health.

The most common symptoms associated with long-COVID are fatigue, headaches, attention deficit, muscle weakness, loss of smell or taste, poor mental health and sleeping difficulties.

Clinical examples are now showing that, if left untreated, some of these symptoms can spiral into more serious health problems.

As the virus doesn’t affect everyone in the same way, the package takes an integrated approach and is coordinated by multiple specialists.

Participants pay a baseline fee of €2,600 (£2,257, US$3,141) for seven days, which includes an initial health assessment by an internal medicine specialist and diagnostic testing to determine biological damage caused by COVID-19.

Guests also receive nutritional profiling and support, free access to Sha’s activity schedule and a moxibustion session or Chinese medicine consultation and acupuncture.

Following the initial assessment, the medical team then prescribes guests with an extra tailored treatment package – for an additional fee – which best addresses their individual long-term effects.

These include:

  • Thrombosis – €550 (£478, US$665)
  • Urological issues – €700 (£608, US$846)
  • Cognitive impairment – €1,050 (£912, US$1,269)
  • Heart disorders – €550 (£478, US$665)
  • Long-term psychological effects – €900 (£781, US$1,088)
  • Immune deficiencies – €900 (£781, US$1,088)
  • Respiratory problems – €550 (£478, US$665)
  • Musculoskeletal issues – €650 (£564, US$786).

Sha’s intention is to act on guests’ deficiencies at a physical, immunological, respiratory, cognitive, digestive or emotional level.

Throughout all packages, Sha’s team is relying on leading medical and wellness therapies such as IV laser therapy, cryotherapy, stem cell treatments, reflexology, Watsu and isometric training.

“The final objective is not only to alleviate long-term effects but also to prevent others with greater repercussions,” explained Dr Vicente Mera, head of the programme.

“We want to strengthen the person so they can enjoy their life to the fullest, both physically and emotionally.”
