Festive, Wellness and Island Time in the Maldives
It is the time of the year when New Year's resolutions come to our minds, demanding a 'new year, new me' action plan. While we believe that wellness, self-care and, most of all, self-love should never be just a new year's resolution, our wellness team has a few new additions to their extensive offering in stock for all those who want to explore a new side of wellness.
Energy healing, singing bowl meditation and dry massage therapies are just the beginning, as guests can meet and consult with different wellness practitioners based in the resort during the festive season and the first few months of 2023.
Joao Santos, a highly regarded Bangkok and London-trained international wellness consultant and professional dry masseur, performs integrated therapies and specialises in deep tissue/sports massage and foot reflexology. Dry massage incorporates a fusion of East and West methods, including energy balancing, Tui Na and Thai stretching techniques. Residency dates: 18th December 2022 – 31st January 2023.
Reiki master, physical therapist and advanced energy healing practitioner Rajeshwari Amol Nerukar has 20 years of experience and will offer guests Chakra healing and balancing to harmonise energy centres. Rajeshwari can use her skills to work on 107 energy points throughout the body to release toxins and relieve stress and tension, in addition to the 6000-year-old technique of Tibetan singing bowl sound therapy as a path to regeneration. Rajeshwari can also work with guests on more in-depth 3-day journeys covering energy enhancement, muscle relief and a sleep regulator programme.
