Beachside Holistic Wellness
Looking ahead to the new year, many of us are in need of some TLC. The January opening of Hilton Head Health's newest facility is just the boost you need to start 2021 refreshed.
Unwind, reset and recharge at Hilton Head Health’s newest addition to their wellness estate: The Sweetgrass Inn.
A stroll along the beach at daybreak followed by a few rounds of aquatic circuit training and then a guided meditation — and that’s just before 10 a.m. At Hilton Head Health, the activities are as diverse as the clientele, who range from brides looking to shed a few pounds to C-suite execs needing to recharge. But they all have one goal in common: a search for wellness.
“We have a saying that we meet you where you are on your wellness journey,” says CEO Kevin Carter. “I came here as a guest myself needing to lose weight. This isn’t just a resort vacation; it’s truly a life-changing getaway.”
Changing your life takes time. Retreats start at three days, but most last for a few weeks. Some are designed to help participants with weight loss while others are just a chance to refresh and refocus. For each, the approach is holistic, emphasizing self-care for mind, body, and spirit.
That’s where the all-inclusive model helps. You can fill your days with fitness classes, expert-led wellness lectures, and outdoor recreation like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding off the eastern shore of Hilton Head Island. Then at mealtime, fill your plate with dishes featuring seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. The programs come with resort credit, too, good toward spa treatments, cooking classes, and one-on-one training…
The Sweetgrass Inn, slated to open in January, will feature 30 rooms, a community game room, and a porch lined with rocking chairs overlooking the pool deck. Its name is a nod to the sweetgrass baskets traditionally woven by the Gullah people of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
