Kamalaya, a Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa
on Koh Samui, Thailand, has launched a Sleep Enhancement program.
The focus of the Sleep Enhancement program is to
re-establish healthy and restful sleep while addressing sleep
issues and imbalances.
Sleep difficulties will be addressed
through a combination of core treatments and therapies drawing
from naturopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, massage therapy
and mind-body balance.
Treatments will incorporate Shirodhara,
Royal Ayurvedic massage, acupuncture, yoga, herbal foot baths with
foot massage, the addition of herbs & supplements as well as
mentoring to deal with lifestyle factors and personal issues.
This program will be both a stand-alone program
within the category of Healthy Living, as well as an add-on to
some of Kamalaya’s other programs.
Kamalaya co-founder Karina Stewart, doctor of
Traditional Chinese Medicine, formulated the Sleep Enhancement
program in response to a need from guests. “A high proportion of
our guests mention sleep as an issue and concern in their lives –
most are suffering from disruption to a healthy sleep cycle
whether it is poor quality sleep, insufficient sleep or an
inability to fall asleep. This program is a vital addition to our
portfolio as we know sufficient quality sleep is a key ingredient
to optimal wellness and vitality,” Ms. Stewart said.
Sleeping issues can have a base in a range of
different health imbalances. Various reasons for disturbance
include; biochemical, physiological, lifestyle, dietary,
psychological and emotional causes. An inadequate amount of sleep
has been associated with higher risks of obesity, heart disease,
diabetes and more recently colon cancer.
Sleep Laboratory Founder and Director Dr. William Dement, said,
“Healthful sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most
important factor in predicting longevity, more influential than
diet, exercise or heredity.”
Depending on the cause it can take from days to
months to re-establish a good sleep cycle. With the Sleep
Enhancement program the resort is hoping to address as many factors as possible
during a guest’s visit. Programs of various lengths are
available to choose from starting with a five-night minimum.
“We have put together a powerful
combination of tailored treatments, advice and remedies to combat
sleep deprivation. This therapeutic and preventative program will
address life’s stresses and strains as well as health imbalances
which deplete sleep quality and impact an individual’s health,”
added Ms. Stewart.
A five-night stay at Kamalaya with 5-night Sleep
programme starts from A$2,763.67.
