Discover a new pathway of health, happiness and fulfilment with Soneva Soul, a new transformative wellness concept from Soneva. By Bayar Jain
Launched at the end of 2021, Soneva Soul unites science and innovation to reconnect the mind, body, and soul. This new transformative wellness concept by Soneva aims to support every aspect of life: rest and recovery; healing illness; improving physical or mental performance; or simply indulging and relaxing in exquisite surrounds at Soneva Soul’s new island wellness centres at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani.
The intuitive therapies here—each of which can be personalised for individualistic wellness journeys—harness traditional wellness practices like Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and herbalism. On the other hand, innovative treatments are informed by latest diagnostics and therapeutic biomodulation, such targeted vitamin therapies, cryotherapy, platelet-rich plasma, ozone therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In each, a team of resident therapists and global network of wellness specialists guide the way.
Wellness Experts at Soneva Soul
These in-house therapists also bring with them a menu of treatments drawn from their personal healing heritages. These include rituals like Ibu Secret, a full body energy massage by therapist Canca who seeks inspiration from her mother’s healing hands to nurture and rebalance the body and eliminate toxins; or a Tok Sen massage by Piyada, a traditional northern Thai massage, which uses wooden mallets and pegs to hammer tension away.
Additionally, the permanent Soneva Soul team is complimented by an ever-changing calendar of residencies from visiting wellness specialists. Each of these experts are chosen for their vast experience across a rainbow of wellness practices, healing therapies and spirituality. Think Reiki, body work, and osteopathy, to name a few. Those looking for an experiential functional gym-based fitness can opt for movement programmes led by master fitness trainers. On the other hand, yoga and mindfulness masters lead individual and group sessions to help re-ground and reconnect, while specialist sleep programmes help unlock the secrets of a healthier night’s rest.
