True to its name, manoyana or journey of the mind in Sanskrit, is a treatment that is not just restricted to the physical aspect. It takes the mind on a blissful journey establishing an equipoise between body, mind and spirit. The program begins with our yoga expert sharing meditation know-hows, breathing techniques and yoga nidra (or yogic sleep) to help wind down to a tranquil pace. As the mind slows down, and the body drifts into a calm state of balance, a head and body massage is followed by the gentle pouring of warm herbal oil on the third-eye chakra to ensure progressive deep relaxation.
As the name suggests, this treatment invokes all of the senses and taps into the mind of a person, instilling a deep state of bliss and total relaxation. It can be the perfect antidote to our busy lives, and is best enjoyed when there is the luxury of time at hand.

Chiang Mai Samunprai
Explore the wisdom of Traditional Thai medicine, which incorporates the best of wellness practices of the ancient ‘mon’ and ‘khmer’ people, T’ai medicine, and traditional Indian and Chinese healthcare systems. This invigorating ritual involves a sequence of carefully chosen remedies designed to re-establish or maintain the harmony of body and mind.
A stimulating Samunprai herbal poultice application is followed by a healing oriental fusion therapy focusing on the ‘Zen channels’ in the body such as tendons, ligaments, nerves and circulatory vessels leaving you relaxed and revitalized. The traditional Thai Herbal Compress is a heated muslin parcel of aromatic herbs and spices or the Samunprai used for centuries throughout Thailand to relieve tired and weary bodies and minds. Kafir lime and lemon grass, along with a bouquet of healing spices offer an uplifting treatment. The heat from the compress carries the herbal essences and essential oils deep into the skin, underlying tissues and organs. It brings about a deep sensation of comfort and warmth whilst stimulating the body to detoxify and heal itself.
Legend has it that ancient warriors in Thailand returned home to their families and were eased back into an energized state of physical fitness again by their wives who used this wellness technique.
