Breaks which allow travellers to improve their wellbeing through holistic therapies – such as holidays to Thailand – are increasing in popularity as the credit crunch continues.

Travel expert Krissy Roe said that such breaks are no longer seen as something that only the very rich can afford and so they are becoming more common.

“Holistic holidays give you the chance to get away from it all and rejuvenate. There are more [such] holidays being offered out there. It’s not such a niche market anymore,” the responsibletravel.com spokesperson commented.

Indeed, separate research from the same organisation recently showed that the popularity of holistic and wellbeing holidays went up by 121 per cent during 2008 when compared with 2007.

Kate Moss is one celebrity who is likely to appreciate the benefits a holistic holiday can have – the supermodel recently spent her Christmas holidays at a spa in Thailand with her four-year-old daughter Lila Grace and her fiance Jamie Hince.
