Six Senses Spa
Posted: 13 April 2016
The 'Integrated Wellness' approach offered by Six Senses creates superb spa experiences, enabling relaxation and reinvigoration for guests. The available programmes are varied and can be tailored to every individual, because as acknowledged by Spa Vice President, Anna Bjurstam, no two people are the same. Each guest will receive the best possible treatment for their personal needs, thanks to accurate and scientific methods. Six Senses Spas are taking the challenge of forming an integrated wellness approach with commitment and expertise, utilising the excellent knowledge and insights of some of the world’s best doctors. Highly qualified practitioners then skilfully apply this expertise through outstanding treatments. The approach intelligently applies Eastern methods and traditions to meet the results-orientated needs of Western influences. In a fast-paced and often stressful world, guests will find the ideal relaxation techniques to unwind and vastly improve their wellbeing.
Guests will be enlightened regarding balanced nutrition, healthy sleeping patterns and a variation of high and low intensity exercises. The treatments are holistic, including yoga, meditation, alternative therapies and mindfulness. Guests will not only reap the benefits of these superb programmes at the spa itself, but will take away irreplaceable knowledge and in-depth guidance regarding their health and wellbeing. The overall aim is for guests to take ownership of their health, whilst experiencing sensations of fulfilment and joy as they do so. The integrated wellness programmes are available at a number of our featured hotels: Zighy Bay in Oman, Laamu in the Maldives, Yao Noi in Vietnam, Douro Valley in Portugal, Puente Romano Beach Resort and Spa in Spain, and Soneva Kiri in Thailand and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. Al Bustan Palace, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Oman now also features a Six Senses Spa.
Meditation can form a key part of the spa experience, with research showing that regular practice helps engender greater clarity and emotional positivity, and helps create a calmer way of seeing true natural beauty. Meditation encourages and nourishes this positive and focussed state of mind, and can result in transformative and profound effects, possibly leading to a fresh understanding of life and the world around us. The Eastern influences are shown in particular through incorporated Tibetan approaches. These centuries-old traditions promote happiness, health longevity and balance between body and mind.
Two of our expert Travel Consultants have recently returned from a fabulous two-night trip to Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal, where they experienced first-hand a taster of the unique benefits of this innovative, personalised programme of spa treatments, fitness and wellness activities. Augmented by lifestyle and nutritional advice, tailored from an intensive screening programme that analyses key physiological bio markers, and in-depth discussions to further assist in providing the very best programme for each individual, our travel experts had a superb time and would highly recommend anyone to experience the programme for themself. Honed by two years of research and Six Senses Spas' collaboration with some of the world's leading, highly respected doctors and wellness professionals, the programmes are conducted at some of the world's most beautiful luxury hotels and resorts, allowing guests to also enjoy stunning accommodation, excellent cuisine, superb facilities and superlative five star service whilst enjoying the benefits of the Six Senses Integrated Wellness programme in stunning surroundings.
