If a nig­gling sport in­jury, in­som­nia or stress is hav­ing a neg­a­tive im­pact on your workout, don’t let a fear of med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als block re­cov­ery. A new wave of in­no­va­tive and im­mer­sive re­hab pro­grammes now fo­cus on men. To bring back your A-game faster than you can say “squat”, here are three to con­sider.

Sleep pat­tern prob­lems Em­ploy­ing nighttime tech­nol­ogy to track sleep and breath­ing pat­terns, and qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als to an­a­lyse nu­tri­tion, stress, psy­cho­log­i­cal and gen­eral health, the SHA Wellness Clinic’s week­long sleep re­cov­ery course will iden­tify then treat un­der­ly­ing causes of sleep loss. Caf­feine and al­co­hol are banned, while di­ag­nos­tic tech­niques work in tan­dem with acupunc­ture, med­i­ta­tion, mas­sage and re­flex­ol­ogy. The lo­ca­tion isn’t bad ei­ther, near the coast in Ali­cante, Spain. shawell­ness­clinic.com

Gut health If you’ve fallen into bad eating habits and feel run­down, con­sider a di­ges­tive sys­tem re-boot. The Lanser­hof Lans med­i­cal spa at the foot of Aus­tria’s Patscherkofel Moun­tain is a longterm prac­ti­tioner of the Lans Med con­cept (be­liev­ing an over­worked di­ges­tive sys­tem weak­ens the im­mune sys­tem and saps en­ergy). A com­plete gas­troin­testi­nal di­ag­no­sis is made be­fore for­mu­lat­ing a be­spoke, holis­tic treat­ment scheme. Fa­cil­i­ties include a bath house and sauna, in­door/out­door salt water pool and a med­i­cal cold cham­ber. lanser­hof.com
