Trish Duke: Slower-paced tours.

YANCHEP physio Trish Duke has seen the need for holidays that are specially designed for people with physical challenges.

She said this could |include arthritis, cancer, diabetes, visual impairment, strokes, cardiac and respiratory issues or “just mature travellers who don’t want to be rushed from place to place”.

“Over the years, I have sympathised with patients who were unsure about travelling and treated those who came back after a holiday worse for wear,” she said. “Adventurous people still want to travel and see the world but often get to a point when they struggle to keep up with regular, fast-paced tours or feel vulnerable travelling alone.”

Ms Duke has designed slower-paced escorted tours with “minimal steps, walking, standing, slopes or rough ground”.

She takes 10-day tours to the Holy Land in the Middle East, where she has travelled extensively for more than 10 years and loves the “amazing archaeology, history, stunning scenery, diverse cultures and religions”.

“As a foodie, the locally produced food is so fresh it almost jumps off the plate,” she said.

She also escorts 14-day tours at the Dead Sea in |Israel.

“Research and history tells us that Dead Sea treatments are greatly beneficial to people with any type of arthritis, psoriasis, vitiligo or respiratory complaints,” Ms Duke said.

“The free Dead Sea treatments consist of sunlight plus rich minerals in the mud, salt water and |atmosphere that deeply penetrate into your body.

“Being the lowest place on Earth, the harmful UVA rays can’t reach there so you can soak up the goodness of the sun without burning.

“It’s a unique healing environment, as well as a stunning destination.”
