As our currently residing doctor of Naturopathy Dr Vihas Unni describes ‘the body is its greatest healer’. 

Doctor of Naturopathy and expert in Acupuncture, Yoga, and Prana (breath-work). Dr Vihas Unni uses his knowledge of the human body in helping clients tackle their physical body discomforts through the aforementioned methods of treatment. Through these authentic methods, the human body essentially starts to heal itself and also prevents further illnesses from infecting the body. 

He further incorporates authentic methods such as energy cleansing and meditating to help unblock the energy points/chakras of the physical body to help with the flow of energy better, thus preventing and protecting the body and mind. During his stay from September 2022 until February 2023, Dr Unni will be working closely with our spa team and open bookings for interested guests.
