Six Senses Spas Introduces Resident Ayurvedic and Specialist Practitioners in Maldives

Six Senses Spas at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Gili in the Maldives have taken their holistic wellness programmes to a higher level with the introduction of resident Ayurvedic medical doctors at both locations, plus a certified resident naturopath at Soneva Fushi.

A comprehensive lifestyle consultation with the resident certified practitioners provides guests with tailor-made programmes to achieve better health - extending to their daily diet, routine and surrounding environment.

According to Ayurveda we each inherit a unique composition of three 'doshas' or elements. At both Soneva Fushi and Soneva Gili, in the idyllic location of the Maldives, the resident Ayurveda Doctor determines guest's constitution or 'dosha' type. The fully trained Doctors, who are also accredited General Practitioners, advise guests regarding the most suitable Ayurvedic programme or lifestyle programme to suit their individual needs in order to rejuvenate, restore balance, build immunity and encourage natural healing.

Consultations with Soneva Fushi's internationally trained and certified naturopath and homoeopath focus on current ill-health and long term health issues or concerns. Programmes include classical homoeopathy, herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, and dietary and lifestyle advice including live cooking demonstrations aimed to inspire guests to make healthier food choices in life. Remedies and dietary adjustments are subscribed by the certified naturopath from the spa dispensary to support and enhance the body's own healing capacity.

Healthy cuisine is created to compliment each holistic wellness programme utilising the freshest produce from the region and freshly picked fruit and vegetables from each resort's organic gardens. Additionally, each programme is supported by daily sensory spa journeys and wellness activities such as yoga and meditation - ensuring a positive impact to the guests' wellbeing.
