Health & COVID 19
The tranquil and relaxing setting of Balcary Bay provides an ideal setting for Health and Wellness services. Health talks, Yoga Classes and naturopathic therapeutics are planned for 2021 with “immunity boosting” traditional Finnish Sauna, Infra Red Sauna and Steam Aromatherapy log cabin planned for 2021/22.
We implement government guidelines on mitigation of viral transmission to protect both guests and staff. As with all respiratory infections, maintaining fresh air in the building is most important in minimising transmission risk. We therefore promote good airflow in the common rooms including a log fire in the main lounge which draws fresh airflow. Our bedrooms have windows that open and no part of the building has recycled air from air-conditioners. Although Galloway has had a historically low infection rate, we reserve the right to temperature check staff daily, as well as arriving guests, should new significant outbreaks emerge.
During the year we will post activities including Yoga for beginners and Intermediates, Health talks on Health Promoting Diets and on Successful Weight Loss. For more tailored one on one sessions we offer Health Retreat Programmes during less busy times of year.
