Six Senses launches Integrated Wellness programme

Six Senses hotels and resorts has launched an Integrated Wellness programme, offering guests individualised well-being solutions. 

The concept, which launched this week, is available at Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman, Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives, Six Senses Yao Noi in Thailand and Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal. 

The programme is also available at some of Six Senses partner spas, including the spas Puente Romano Resort & Spa in Marbella, the Al Bustan Palace in Oman, Soneva Kiri in Thailand and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives.

Cornerstones of the programme, the length of which can be adapted to the individual’s preference, includes nutrition, movement, sleep health, alternative therapies, spa treatments and yoga, mediation and mindfulness to help balance the nervous system.

The programme begins with a wellness screening, which includes the use of a finger oximeter - a device measuring how oxygenated a person’s blood is.

The test, in conjunction with information about the guest’s lifestyle and wellness goals and concerns, forms the basis of the personalised wellness programme.

The programme aims to address key health and wellbeing concerns, including stress, weight concerns, a weakened immune system, a lack of muscle tone and problems sleeping. A post-programme follow up consultation, to help guests implement the changes once they return home, is also included. 

Six Senses has worked with leading medical professionals on the programme, which has been two years in development. Experts involved in the creation of the programme include cardiac surgeon Steven Gundry, director of the International Heart and Lung Institute in Palm Springs, California, and the founder and director of The Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara.

Six Senses has also worked with clinical psychologist Michael J Breus, a diplomat of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine on the programme, as well as  Dr Mehmet Oz, a professor at the Department of Surgery at Columbia University and the director of the Cardiovascular Institute and the Complementary Medicine Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
