Slow Beauty, Thai-style

Posted in HEALTH + WELLBEING By Maggie O' Sullivan

We’re all well versed in the joys and benefits of Slow Food. But did you know that Slow Beauty is a thing, too?Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa, on Thailand’s Pak Nampran Bay, certainly does. In its book, Slow or SLOW is an an acronym for a Sustainable, Local, Organic and Wellness cosmetics philosophy. The resort already offers farm-to-fork cuisine; now it has a farm-to-facial approach to wellness, too, using completely natural and organic ingredients in its Ayurah Spa.Over 25 varieties of herbs, fruits and vegetables such as ginger, lemongrass, mint and ylang ylang, grown on the resort’s own organic farm, are used to create bespoke spa products and aromatherapy selections. All ingredients are GMO-free and made without any parabens or petrochemicals, ensuring a totally natural spa experience designed to heal, relax and rejuvenate.Performed by Aleenta Hua Hin’s highly trained team of massage experts, health practitioners, yoga masters, reflexologists and healers, the SLOW inspired spa treatments include the Ayurah Natural Facial, which uses Aleenta’s ancient beauty ritual of natural herbs and vegetables to re-energise the skin.Also available are healing massage therapies to encourage blood circulation and improve muscle tone, body polish treatments to deeply exfoliate the skin with salts and plant-based oils, as well as authentic Thai healing treatments using steamed Thai herbal pouches directly from the resorts on-site farm. Here, guests are invited to discover how Thai herbs can enhance their mind, body and spirit as ancient therapies are combined with contemporary practices.

Spas have always been pretty slow in the unhurried sense. Now they are Slow, too.
