The Secret Garden Spa at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui is located on the third-largest Thai island, Koh Samui, which is part of an archipelago of more than 60 islands off Thailand’s east coast. Just a 45-minute flight from Bangkok, the island’s white sand, swaying coconut palms and calm waters help maintains its away-from-it-all charm. At the Secret Garden Spa, you can relax and submit to the healing powers of expert therapists, trained by a renowned master healer in Thai techniques. Guided by energies and intuition, the massage therapists use a combination of acupressure, trigger point therapy, hands-on healing, and soft and deep tissue massage called intuitive therapy.
Studies have shown positive effects of massage therapy to relieve stress, anxiety, and pain.
The therapy takes its own flow and rhythm as the Spa’s experts suggest an oil- or non-oil-based experience, depending on the areas of concern. Offering deep relaxation and relieving pain, this massage works miracles on lifestyle problems such as frozen shoulder, back ache, neck pain and more. A steam is recommended at the beginning of the treatment to help relieve toxins from the body.
After the experience, the expert healers will share tips and secrets that will allow guests to start afresh in their journey of well-being.
The spa offers a variety of treatments including the signature Secret Garden, a special Thai massage which uses the healing powers of native herbs. The process combines a blend of acupressure and warm compresses to eases lingering aches and tight muscles. Each compress is filled with a unique mix of medicinal plants and spices – tamarind leaves, turmeric, lemongrass and more. Finally, a full body oil massage eliminates any remaining stress.
For the beach lover, there’s also the Secret Beach treatment, exquisitely performed at the secluded beach spa beneath shady palm trees with a selection of natural treatments accompanied by the soothing sound of the waves.
