Clove and citrus peel extract in the oil protect against a range of bacterial cells and viruses

Anantara gives massages an immune-boosting edge Anantara has created a signature massage oil to support the body’s defence system which its rolling out across its 40 spas as they reopen. The new oil can be incorporated into Anantara’s signature massages and contains clove oil, bitter orange peel extract, eucalyptus oil and rosemary. Both clove oil and the orange extract are claimed to protect against a wide range of bacterial cells, fungi and viruses. Meanwhile eucalyptus and rosemary oil include natural inflammatory properties and immune system boosters which aid in creating white blood cells that combat pathogens and disease. On creating the oil Zoe Wall, group director of MSpa, the corporate division of spa and wellness for Anantara, says: “Even during closure, our guests’ wellbeing was at the forefront of our minds and we took some time

during lockdown to reflect on what we could do to show that we’re just as serious about their health as they are. While our guests will still want to relax with a massage, our new signature massage oil gives an extra boost.”

Sha reopened in late July Daily therapeutic treatments are prescribed

Sha teams up with NASA and Harvard

Optimising health at Sangha Retreat

Spanish medi-wellness facility, Sha Wellness Clinic, collaborated with NASA and Harvard to create new programmes and treatments for its reopening on 22 July. It’s combining medical treatments and natural therapies to “restore and stimulate the body’s natural immunity, with the goal of enabling the body to be in the best condition for defeating threats to health and wellbeing.” The dedicated immune-boosting regime forms just one part of Sha’s signature seven-day, €4,000 (US$4,480, £3,574) Rebalance programme and begins with an initial immunotherapy consultation, lymph system profile, viral profile and energy health consultation. Participants then undergo two sessions of infrared heat therapy, an optimal electromagnetic balance session and an ozone therapy session.

Looking at how people are equipped to combat disease and how they can strengthen their immune system is the key to a new programme at the integrative wellness destination, Sangha Retreat by Octave Institute, in China. Wellness and lifestyle consultations, along with scientific tests – ranging from assessing posture to checking metabolic function – determine the strength of defence systems, both physically and mentally. Following this, a range of daily prescribed therapeutic treatments, alongside a customised nutrition plan, will be selected. Services could include TCM and aromatherapy massages, acupuncture

and use of infrared, along with PT, pilates and aquatic stretching sessions to relax and detoxify the body, allowing it to enter a rejuvenation phase. Founder Fred Tsao says: “The purpose of the institute is to introduce a new cycle of living that achieves mind, body and spiritual wellness. We’re now witnessing the onset of a new era of consciousness and wellbeing.” Sangha’s three-night programme starts from CNY19,100 (£2,195, US$2,689, €2,458) per person and the six-night experience has a starting price of CNY32,700 (£3,757, US$4,605, €4,209) per person. l ●●Read more: http://lei.sr/W2k0q
