Mandarin Oriental Bodrum partners with the Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic has partnered with the Mandarin Oriental Bodrum in Turkey on a wellness programme launching at the resort in January. 

The Mayo Clinic will take its popular Healthy Living Programme to the Mandarin Oriental Bodrum next year, with the programme offered at the property between January and April.

Programme options will range from single services and one-day experiences to five-day retreats. The US-based Mayo Clinic, which has five medical campuses across the United States, has set up the programme around three core pillars of wellness: physical activity, nutrition, and resiliency.

Jeremy McCarthy, group director of spa at the Mandarin Oriental, said: "In today’s ever-changing, fast-paced world, expert guidance on how to lead a healthier, more holistic life is the greatest investment one can make. We are delighted to be the first hotel group to collaborate with Mayo Clinic to offer programmes of this kind.”

Focused on preventative health and on helping clients live a more balanced and less stressful life, the programme entails a detailed health assessment by Mayo Clinic staff. The assessment includes stress, posture, body composition analysis and overall health, among other areas.

The five-day programme, tailored to the needs of each guest, includes fitness sessions, a choice of yoga, pilates and meditation classes, a selection of treatments at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum and healthy cuisine throughout.

The Mayo Clinic Wellness Weekend also comprises a health assessment, as well as a fitness class, a spa treatment and the use of the spa facilities. Single sessions include the Healthy Sleep and Stress Management sessions and The Neat Experience, focused on getting more movement into your everyday life.

Paul Limburg, medical director, Mayo Clinic Global Business Solutions, said: "We think this collaboration with Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum will provide their guests with a unique, useful, and relaxing way to learn about evidence-based wellness practices.”
