According to a recent Spafinder Wellness 365 TM report, 20 percent of adults from North America have previously taken vacations focused on health and 62 percent more would like to.
Even more telling about the report is that an overwhelming majority of those who had taken health-centered vacation in the past, 96 percent, in fact, felt that their vacation experiences had a positive impact on their lives.
The following list includes five top U.S. wellness retreats you can easily travel to via a private jet charter.
