About Jo

Jo FoleyFor over a quarter of a century, Jo has been visiting and reviewing Spas, Sanctuaries and Wellness Centres on four continents and has written about the associated health issues for publications as varied as the Financial Times, Conde Nast Traveller, Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar, the Sunday Telegraph, Woman& Home, the Daily Mail, the Times and InStyle.  Always informative and often irreverent, she is remorseless in her assessment of those practitioners who can truly cure and those who merely con.

She has observed as Fat Farms have morphed into Pleasure Palaces and Health Centres into Holistic Hideaways. She has experienced rather more than her fair share of ayurvedic retreats in India, Traditional Chinese Medicine programmes, Hay Baths in Austria, Inca inspired Temezcal sweat lodges in Mexico, Native American Hopi Candle therapy in Arizona, Thai massages, Balinese baths, thalassotherapy hosings in France, mud treatments in Morocco, detoxes in Italy,  hammams throughout the Middle East and experienced spa offerings from Land’s End to John O’Groats in the United Kingdom.

Jo Foley has also published several beauty and spa books and has consulted for hotels and spa groups globally.
