Feel the benefits of Fijian well-being

by posted in WELLNESS

Indulge in a Fijian specialty treatment at Six Senses Spa Fiji, including a Fijian Bobo Massage with warm poultices of herbs picked from the spa’s garden. 90 minutes of bliss. Dribbling allowed.

If there’s one thing we know how to do in Fiji, it is to relax. Even our deeptissue massages are much less ouchy than other types, as you’ll discover during a Fijian Bobo (pronounced bon-bo) Massage. This treatment increases circulation, releases toxins and eases muscle tension by combining firm massage techniques with local oil blends and warm poultices of herbs picked from the spa’s garden and applied to specific areas of concern.

Looking for a treatment with a twist? Our Fijian play on a hot stone massage is a Heated Lava Shell Massage. This unique 90-minute healing massage uses warmed shells and exotic oils to release tension, boost circulation, reduce swelling and balance the entire body and mind. The heat helps penetrate muscle ligaments and soft tissue on a deeper level, while the shells target specific problem areas.

The Blissful Marma Massage is one of the best reasons we know of to get horizontal. It uses long and firm flowing movements of varying pressure to eliminate stress-related tension, while marma therapy and chakra balancing align vital energy centers. Enriching oils with powerful active benefits are applied to balance the heart chakra and enhance overall well-being.

What makes the massage oils and poultices in Fiji so special? They use locally-sourced natural ingredients, such as nut and coconut oil, herbs and flower extracts. Using these oils gives the added benefit of hydrating and nourishing the skin while directing antioxidants, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids in areas of the skin where it needs it the most. What’s more, the aromas of the oils and herbs help put you in a deep state of relaxation. This embodies the Six Senses philosophy that well-being is linked to the calm and rejuvenating benefits of nature.

Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Six Senses Spa Fiji is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional village. You enter it via stepping stones leading to the welcome lounge where you’ll find the Consultation Room, Nail Bar, Alchemy Bar and retail collection. There are also four treatment bures, fitness center, jungle gym and yoga and meditation pavilion.
