The award-winning Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will introduce bespoke signature spa therapies, together with a product and home care range at many of its luxury hotel spas worldwide, from June 2009.
Mandarin Oriental’s Signature Spa Therapies:
Mandarin Oriental’s Signature Spa Therapies have been devised to address guests’ increasing desire for simple, effective and authentic spa experiences, which can be extended to one’s home. Developed in consultation with specialists in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and master aromatherapists, each signature therapy consists
of a relaxing, hands-on body massage ritual that combines the powerful effects of oriental meridian massage with the therapeutic benefits of custom-blended essential oils, created uniquely for Mandarin Oriental.
Each treatment begins with a private therapist consultation in order to determine each individual’s personal and current state of well-being. The treatment and oils are then tailored to each guest in order to leave the body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony. Guests are also provided with nutritional and exercise guidance, in order to extend the beneficial effects of the program at home. “Mandarin Oriental’s unique signature spa experience and product range provides our guests with a luxurious, sensory and therapeutic experience, and extends the Group’s holistic, personalized approach to wellness far beyond the four walls of its spas,” said Group Director of Spa, Andrew Gibson.
Signature Product Line:
Mandarin Oriental’s signature product line has been developed specifically for the Group by the award-winning UK based company, Aromatherapy Associates. Each aromatherapy-based product has been created according to the oriental principles of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Bringing together the purest plant and flower oils from east and west, the blends reflect the unique balancing properties of each of the elements. From the stimulating influence of earth to the releasing force of wood, each blend lends its own restorative effect depending on the needs of the individual. The product range incorporates body and bath oils matched to each of the five elements, as well as a generic body scrub, body wash and body lotion. All contain natural ingredients and are paraben free, and have been blended by a master blender to Mandarin Oriental’s specifications. The products, which include a range of candles and travel-size oils, will be available for purchase at Mandarin Oriental spas, so that guests can continue using specific blends at home.
