Amanpuri – home to the flagship Aman Spa in Phuket, Thailand – is expanding its offerings with the introduction of integrative medical services and 'intensive wellness immersions' at its new Holistic Wellness Centre.

Amanpuri is the brand’s first resort to provide medical services. These are run within the new facilities of its Holistic Wellness Centre by a certified medical team from the health and sports resort Thanyapura.

Amanpuri’s integrative medical services fall broadly into three categories: anti-ageing and preventive medicine, aesthetic, and sport performance. The medical team works alongside, and complements the treatments of, Aman’s experts in ancient healing techniques and alternative therapies.

An open-minded holistic ethos combines with state-of-the-art technology in Amanpuri’s quest to boost guests’ health and wellbeing.

Guests who embark on medical therapies at Amanpuri will first be assessed by a fully qualified doctor during a comprehensive diagnostic consultation. This might include a live blood analysis, food intolerance/micronutrient blood tests, performance blood tests, a heavy-metal OligoScan, and urine indican testing.

Analysis of all test results, plus in-depth discussions regarding lifestyle and personal goals, might lead to the prescription of specific medical treatments as part of a bespoke wellness programme that also includes a personalised nutrition plan created by Amanpuri’s naturopaths and experienced raw/vegan chefs.

All prescribed medical treatments at Amanpuri will be conducted and overseen by Thanyapura Director Dr Narinthorn Surasinthorn and his specialist team of medical doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, nutritionist, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners and Ayurvedic physicians.

Medical services offered will include: Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Infusion Therapy; Chelation injections; Nebido and Genotropin hormone injections; a personalised supplement plan; colon hydrotherapy; cryotherapy; CoolSculpting; physiotherapy; High Intensity Laser (HIL) therapy; radiofrequency therapy; ultrasound therapy; red-light therapy; non-invasive High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) facials; Botox injections; chemical peel; and cosmetic acupuncture.

TCM services will include Traditional Herbal Medicine; Traditional Acupuncture; Acu-Laser Therapy, Moxibustion and Cupping, while Ayurvedic therapies will range from a four-handed Abhyanga oil massage to Shirodhara (the gentle pouring of warm oil onto the forehead and over the scalp).

DNA Lifestyle Genetic Analysis and Basic Wellness Gene Tests will also be available.

All of these services will be complemented by the Wellness Centre’s holistic spa services, with massages, facials, body wraps and body polishes that utilise Aman’s recently launched, all-natural skincare products.

Amanpuri is also the first Aman to provide Intensive Wellness Immersions – individual programmes with prescribed medical treatments tailored to an individual’s needs. These minimum five-night plans deepen and expand on the resort’s existing three-night Original Wellness Immersions, which launched in 2016.

The new Intensive Wellness Immersions aim to present results-oriented, personalised programmes to guests who wish to dedicate their time at Amanpuri to achieving specific wellness goals. Employing tools in both the medical and therapeutic wellness repertoires, Intensive Immersions are designed not merely to enhance a guest’s stay but to be its purpose.

The Intensive Wellness Immersions offer different ‘pathways’: Mindfulness & Stress Management is exclusively an Original Immersion; Weight Management & Transformation and Detox & Cleansing are offered as both Original and Intensive Immersions; Sports Recovery & Rehabilitation and Rejuvenation & Optimal Wellbeing are exclusively Intensive Immersions.

All Immersions include daily spa treatments, private movement classes, specialist therapies and comprehensive nutritional plans. Understanding that not everyone has the time to dedicate to an in-depth Immersion, Amanpuri also offers two shorter experiences: a two-day Wellness Discovery programme designed for individuals concerned by the state of their health and/or in need of a lifestyle reboot, and a one-day Wellness Introduction programme, which accommodates guests who are intrigued by the Immersion concept, or those who are travelling with companion/s and are keen to add a wellness aspect to their holiday without committing to a longer Immersion.

Aman’s Wellness Concierges connect with guests before they arrive to guide them through the different choices available and assist in selecting the wellness experience best suited to their needs. Whether by phone or over email, these health professionals can explain the different programs in detail and answer specific questions, ensuring that guests choose a pathway that delivers their desired outcomes.

As well as medical services, the Amanpuri Holistic Wellness Centre will continue to offer specialist health and beauty treatments alongside energy healing. Options include cranial sacral therapy, mind training, Chi Nei Tsang, connective tissue massage, reconnective healing and lymphatic drainage massage, among many others.

Amanpuri’s Wellness Menu also features an extensive array of practices to strengthen the connection between body and mind, from mindfulness coaching and guided meditation, to Tai Chi and Qigong.

Situated at the heart of the property, the Amanpuri Holistic Wellness Centre has, in addition to the new medical services, a 12-suite Aman Spa with infrared saunas, hydrotherapy areas and a finishing salon.

There is also a two-storey hilltop fitness centre with Pilates studio, Muay Thai studio with boxing ring, yoga pavilions, glass-walled gym and juice bar.

The new Amanpuri Holistic Wellness Centre has been a core part of a wider six-month renovation at the resort, which saw six pools added to guest pavilions, a new Beach Bar and facilities for children and young adults, as well as a complete refurbishment of the spa and fitness facilities.
