Boutique Corporate Tour Back Updated offers Well-being Travel with heart

Delivering luxury wellness journeys at a slower travel pace, providing lasting rejuvenation, relational connection and inspiration.

As the world begins to recover from the traumatic effects of COVID-19, a new US-based wellness tour operator has entered the scene: Return Refreshed. This women-owned business, based in Northeast Florida, offers small-group wellness tours and retreats that combine rejuvenation and mindful exploration with the intention that guests return home refreshed.

Exploration, relaxation and inner reflection are the main priorities of Return Refreshed, whose core values ​​are DELIGHT, DISCOVER, REJUVENATE. “During the first few days of traveling to a new place, your mind and senses are opened up in a way that doesn’t often happen in everyday life,” says owner and CEO Erica Pollock. “You notice new smells, new sites, a new environment, with fresh eyes. We take advantage of this opening of the senses, to sublimate the inner journey that we find in your travel experience. We provide you with the space and guidance to look within and begin to find balance and refreshment. The self-discoveries you make along the way are now associated with happy travel memories, which reinforce and deepen the lasting effects.

Examples of some of the wellness practices guests can experience on a Return Refreshed journey are shinrin-yoku (a Japanese wellness practice that roughly translates to “forest bathing”), subconscious coaching (also known as hypnosis), Christian contemplation and yoga. Guests explore what Pollock calls the “global wisdoms of tranquility” – words and wellness practices that exist in parts of the world, which many American travelers have yet to fully explore.

“Often we don’t even have an English word for these beautiful concepts from other countries,” says Pollock, who has a background in applied linguistics. “To understand them better, a deeper dive into the culture is needed, and we have a lot of fun with that!

Adopting a slow-travel perspective that says no to FOMO, Pollock says, “We usually choose off-the-beaten-track locations with lots of natural beauty, anywhere in the world. French alpine mineral springs. Japanese national parks and onsens (public hot spring baths). The Sierras of California. And more.

“These days, savvy travelers are avoiding the most visited tourist stops and seeking a more authentic travel experience.” She adds, “If we can take you somewhere you’ve never heard of, away from the hustle and bustle, then we know we’re doing something right. We know you’ll be more likely to mix with the locals, soak up the cultural and natural rhythms of a place, and have the space and time to look within for your own growth as well. Organized especially for busy professionals who already value and prioritize wellness, each group is accompanied by a wellness expert, such as a yoga instructor, subconscious coach, or forest and nature therapy guide. Guests benefit from mindful exploration, local wellness experiences, and unique insights from each wellness expert.

Collaborative corporate retreats and incentive trips are also available through Return Refreshed, helping companies prioritize employee wellbeing and team building.
