The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui is introducing new treatments to stimulate the flow of the body’s energies, reawaken the spirit, and nourish the soul. The new treatments use products by ila, 100 percent natural and free of man-made chemicals, containing a rare level of energy achieved by sourcing directly from the local producers who farm and harvest the raw ingredients in harmony with nature. The ingredients are carefully chosen according to their inherent capacity for positive energy, purity and life force, as well as their healing properties.
Ingredients used in the new ila Spa treatments include damascene rose, harvested from a single source in the foothills of the Himalayas; argan oil, wild-grown and cold-pressed from the fruits of ancient indigenous argan trees; and Himalayan salt crystals, formed 250 million years ago and mined from deep within the mountains. The new treatments, including signature rituals, massages, facials, body scrubs and body wraps are currently available at the Spa.
Couple’s Connection – This spa ritual, designed to bring couples closer, focuses on the head, water and crown chakras to connect mind, body and spirit. Using exquisite natural oils of jasmine to stimulate the flow of love, rose to promote deep love, and orange blossom to uplift the soul with higher energy, the treatment imparts feelings of deep relaxation through sensuous lymphatic drainage and gentle chakra healing, culminating in the pouring of warm oil over the third eye to restore and relax every sense. Side by side, couples receive a full-body scrub, chakra-healing techniques, and body and facial marma massage to open the energy fields and harmonise mind, body and spirit.
Bio-Rhythm Restoring Ritual – The perfect jetlag recovery treatment, the Bio-Rhythm Restoring Ritual aims to rebalance the body’s natural bio-rhythms and deeply relax the nervous system. A mineral-rich Energy Scrub and Bio-energy Mud Wrap help to charge and restore the body’s bio-magnetic energy field through the release of negative ions. A Kundalini Back Massage using warm poultices and chakra-balancing techniques follows to relax and balance the nervous system. The ritual concludes with a gentle rose oil marma point facial massage to stimulate the flow of energy.
Kundalini Back Massage – Kundalini, the female goddess of awareness believed to take the form of a coiled snake, is the dormant energy in the base of the spine. When awakened, this dormant energy travels up the spine to the third eye, increasing energy and spiritual enlightenment. The Kundalini back massage uses a blend of neroli, cardamom, jasmine and patchouli essential oils, combined with ancient massage techniques, chakra healing and Himalayan salt and herb poultices, deeply soothing, relaxing and balancing the whole of the body’s nervous system.
Ku Nye Massage – This Tibetan massage uses a blend of five essential oils to balance and purify each of the body’s five elements, restoring a harmonious flow of energy and vitality. Hot Himalayan salt poultices infused with marigold and lavender soothe and energise the body’s meridian energy channels, with specific attention being paid to the back, chest and legs.
