Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group Encourages Digital Wellness

March 23, 2020 Health and Wellness No Comments Email Email

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group introduces the Digital Wellness Escape, a luxurious retreat designed to encourage guests to embark on a digital escape from constant connectivity and focus on their wellbeing.

“A lot of the value of a spa experience comes from simply disconnecting from technology and experiencing time for yourself in silence,” said Jeremy McCarthy, Group Spa Director for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. “During this stressful time of the year, we want to create a space where people can press the pause button and have some time to think, meditate, or just take a break from being inundated with noise.”

Guests are encouraged to come alone or to bring a loved one with whom they would like to share an experience of silent connection. This is also the perfect time to take advantage of the Group’s Digital Wellness initiative. This provides guests with access to a range of wellness advice and activities designed to help them disconnect from technology. Mandarin Oriental has developed a number of tips and guidelines that can help establish personal boundaries on the use of technology, clear mental chatter and establish a healthy, digitally balanced lifestyle.

For those who wish to immerse themselves more fully, a Digital Wellness Escape can be booked at all of the Group’s spas. This 1 hour 20-minute experience focuses on grounding both body and mind through the power of human touch and is designed to provide a calming and peaceful respite from the outside world and the stress of repetitive movements.

“Wellness experts agree that silence, and the absence of incessant digital noise, is key to our health and wellbeing,” said Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO of the Global Wellness Institute.

The Spa treatment commences with a foot steam using

ancient shungite stones that absorb negative energy, anxiety and depression. During this, guests can choose to learn to prepare their own organic face mask with ingredients such as oatmeal, yogurt and mocha or simply enjoy the silence.

With a focus on grounding both the body and mind, the face mask is applied and the massage experience then concentrates on the head, eyes, neck, shoulders and back to provide a calming and peaceful respite to alleviate the stress of the outside world.

Before and after the treatment, guests are invited to the spa lounge to enjoy a range of non-digital activities such as Jenga, Rubik’s cubes and mindful colouring or to relax and meditate. Guests are presented with a Mandarin Oriental Power Protein Smoothie to recharge and homecare booklet featuring wellness tips and advice as a reminder on the importance of taking time for reflection.

“In today’s fast-paced and technology-charged society, the new norm is to always be connected. This constant distraction interrupts focus; concentration and social settings and we created this programme to support our guests with finding a healthier balance in their daily lives” said Spa Director Karen Aleksich.
