Personalized for every guest and keeping in mind all the factors that affect immunity, like seasonal changes, personal hygiene and nutritional habits, these wellness programmes are unifying in their approach and aim to achieve optimal health for the guests.
Available at Aman’s resorts worldwide, we list some interesting programmes.
Harnessing the healing powers of the Ayurveda in the tranquil Amanbagh, a Mughal era hunting lodge, the Ayurveda Immune Support Retreat focuses on inner balance and longevity of good health. The resident Ayurveda physician offers a private consultation with the guest on the day of arrival. After that, the programme entails yoga sessions with a trained in-house yoga instructor, immune-boosting shots and herbal teas, morning walks, Ayurveda spa treatments like a special herbal oil massage called abhyanga. Available from March 12 to December 20, 2020, this retreat includes healthy and delicious meals prepared from the fresh local produce grown in Amanbagh’s sprawling two acres organic vegetable garden.
The Holistic Immune Support Retreat, available year-round, can be accessed at Amanera, Dominican Republic; Amanemu, Japan; and Amanjena, Marrakech. Apart from the yoga and meditation sessions and herbal juices, this programme has special 90-minute balancing facial and feet reflexology treatment. The highlight of the Holistic Immune Support Retreat is the waning moon ritual. The waning moon is considered the time to let go of any distressing emotional imbalances and build a strong immune response system. Guests are offered an herbal tea made of guanábana and limoncillo, followed by a mint-ocean salt exfoliation treatment. Placing medicinal cataplasms or poultices on abdomen and a facial drainage massage using Lariman stone additionally help in relieving stress and bolstering immunity.
The Amanemu, Japan includes the traditional Toji Bathing while the Amanjena, Marrakech boasts a marble Hammam where all the special treatments take place.
With spectacular views of the glistening Tokyo skyline, the 2,500 square meters of spa at Aman Tokyo offers the perfect escape to all its guests right in the middle of bustling urban life. The specially designed Ginger Tea journey is a unique feature of the New Immune Support Spa Treatments, where the guest is enveloped in wrap made of Japanese pepper and the warm ginger tea is smoothly poured over the body. It results in relieving stress from the tightened muscles. Followed by a relaxing full body massage with pepper oil and herbal ball compress, the treatment aids in amplifying immunity. Available year-round, guests can also opt for acupuncture and Shiatsu.
