The Geo Spa at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi is expanding its nurturing embrace with a new Mother-to-be Ritual: a harmonising treatment that draws on the energies of the UNESCO Geopark to bring tranquillity, balance and contentment to both mother and baby.
Developed in conjunction with British “beyond organic” wellness brand ila, the 90-minute therapy combines the most supportive blend of ingredients to evoke a state of oneness with nature, baby and body.
Free from essential oils – to ensure utmost safety – it combines regenerative rosehip seed oil and vitamin E-rich argan oil with a soothing trilogy of lavender, geranium and rose. An herb poultice massage gently replenishes dry skin, removes excess fluid and relieves aches, while an optional blackcurrant seed, honey and Himalayan salt body scrub adds lustre. Specific musical mantras (Ganesh, Gayatri and Tara) bring light, love and maternal energy.
Further benefits of the ritual include: relief of muscle cramps and spasms, especially in the lower back, neck, hips and legs; increase in blood and lymph circulation to help reduce swelling; enhanced pliability of the skin and underlying tissue; reduction of the stress experienced by weight-bearing joints; preparation of the body for labour; and physical and emotional support for the mother-to-be or new mother.
“Mothers-to-be – and breastfeeding new mothers – can be quite limited in terms of treatments that are both safe and beneficial, at a time when their body is going through huge changes,” comments The Geo Spa’s Director Stephanie Cherbakow. “This beautiful ritual is carefully and caringly designed to be both indulgent and nourishing – and The Geo Spa’s spectacular backdrop really enhances the therapeutic benefits.”
Inspired by the healing benefits of Mother Nature, The Geo Spa draws from the energy, elements and life force of the surrounding UNESCO Geopark. The dramatic spa complex features six “floating” pavilions encircled by water, enveloped by towering cliffs, and enriched by natural resources and local therapeutic traditions. Meaning “Mother Earth” and her flow of healing energy’ ila is the perfect partner, championing pure ingredients, natural processes and sustainable practices in a skin and spa range that is as ethical as it is effective.
