The Science of Sleep at Four Seasons Hotels Thailand
Guests have always said that they somehow seem to sleep better in a Four Seasons bed, but with all of the stresses of modern life a great night’s sleep can still be an elusive thing. The Spa teams at
Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the world’s greatest cities is incompatible with a relaxing night’s sleep. The Sweet Dream Remedy at the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok has been carefully created to ensure that, even in the heart of the energetic city, some well-deserved sleep is guaranteed. An indulgent soak with a blend of naturally occurring therapeutic Moor mud, containing a high level of humic acid and botanical ingredients to alleviate the discomfort of stiff and sore muscles, and calming lavender essential oil begins this journey into slumber. A deeply relaxing full-body massage follows with a soothing blend of Moroccan geranium, patchouli, Moroccan cedarwood and organic Madagascar ylang ylang oils to rebalance the body, soothe the mind and calm the soul for the perfect night’s sleep.
Designed to help guests drift off into deep and blissful sleep, the Spa Suite Dreams Escape is performed in a Spa Suite or in the privacy of the guest room, just perfect for falling into bed straight afterwards. The treatment begins with a relaxing full-body massage using long soothing strokes, kneading, stretching techniques and acupressure point manipulation to melt away tension and stress. A scalp massage follows with the application of virgin coconut oil and a deep conditioning mask to nourish the hair and scalp, followed by a hand and foot massage to release blocked energy and improve blood circulation. A pure relaxation bath soak with oils of vetiver, petitgrain and apricot completes the ritual, having a calming and grounding effect on the body, leading to deep, restful sleep.
There are few dreamier destinations than the bamboo jungles of the Golden Triangle, but sometimes all the excitement of learning how to ride elephants makes sleep a little difficult to grasp – and counting elephants doesn’t seem to help. The Mekong Meditation is guaranteed to lull even the most over-excited newly-qualified mahout into deep relaxation and even deeper sleep. Tender muscle manipulations allow the body and mind to relax completely, and when coupled with circular stroke motions help to restore balance. Thai herbal oils release therapeutic properties into the skin to dissolve muscle tension as the mind drifts away, setting the stage for the perfect night’s sleep.
The ultimate treatment to let guests drift away into soothing slumbers, the Divine Night Ritual takes place at night at the Spa, beginning the moment those first steps are taken onto the moonlit walkway, surrounded by the mysteries of the night and the sounds of the jungle. The power of therapeutic touch transports to a world of harmony where sensual ancient massage techniques are applied using a blend of warm coconut oil and flower of ylang ylang essential oil. Energy centres are balanced through sound-healing techniques using Tibetan singing bowls, and healing crystals energize the Swadhisthana chakra, associated with sexuality and relationships. The ritual concludes with a private romantic bath treatment, either surrounded by the forest in an outdoor hot tub at the Spa, or in the relaxing retreat of the guests’ own villa.
