Guests at Naupaka Spa & Wellness Centre at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina (Kapolei, HI) can now take part in a multi-sensory virtual reality wellness experience thanks to The Vessel, which features mixed reality innovation with therapeutic technology.

As part of a new partnership with Sensync, an immersive wellness company founded by Adam Gazzaley, Ph.D., and Alex Theory, Ph.D., The Vessel helps guests reset their brains with a host of customized journeys: Deep Space, Kairos, Ocean Cove, Zen Garden, Quantum Oneness, Crystal Cave, Lost Jungle, and Floating Clouds. Designed to relax and restore the mind, the experiences—Relax ($75, 20 minutes), Restore ($75, 20 minutes), and Full Spectrum ($135, 40 minutes)—allow guests to take a virtual journey into nature. Integrating aromatherapy, sound and music therapy, vibroacoustic stimulation, visual virtual reality, biofeedback and neurofeedback, meditation practices, and more, The Vessel helps spa-goers improve attention, reduce stress, and enhance their moods.

“The Sensync Vessel is unique in that it transports the brain and engages multiple senses, allowing guests to experience a deeper journey,” says director of spa Amanda Schmiege. “As wellness continually redefines itself, we can expect more of these types of modalities to emerge, and our team is delighted to offer this one-of-a-kind experience to our guests.”
