I’m #blessed that I’m often sent to trial these weird and wonderful new treatments through work so I appreciate that they’re not for the faint-hearted or budget-conscious (a week at VivaMayr involves a flight and will set you back at least £1,500), which is why I’m welcoming the arrival of a new wellness centre with open arms.
I will do absolutely anything in my quest for better wellness. I’ve tested Limitless-style nootropics to enhance my cognitive function, trialled the A-list’s favourite exercise classes, popped every (legal) pill and supplement under the sun and even spent a week at elusive health retreat, VivaMayr.
BelleCell, which literally means beautiful cell, is a dedicated clinic for health, wellbeing and beauty that’s just opened up in London, giving regular people access to the treatments previously reserved for the rich, famous and those ‘in the know’. The centre incorporates genetic and scientific lifestyle testing and procedures, offers personalised regenerative programmes and performance optimisation to help you achieve optimal wellness.
All programmes are tailored to your personal biology and are created with molecular wellness in mind to give your cells just what they need. This is the future of health, right here on our doorstep. The team promise to help visitors reach peak performance by fine tuning their bodies to perform at their best mentally and physically through a combination of science, technology, nutrition, performance, oxygen therapies and biohacking techniques.
Hidden in an unassuming courtyard behind the Ritz, I descend the spiral staircase to BelleCell and momentarily feel like an extra in a James Bond film. The futuristic furniture, blue lighting and immaculately-dressed staff is super boujee and I immediately feel ‘well’. Ah, the placebo effect.
