Visiting Practitioners play an integral part in the wellness offerings at Six Senses. We’re delighted to welcome back these passionate therapists and wellness consultants who bring boundless energy to our resorts for the summer season.

Sommai Phokamnerd is originally from Thailand. He studied acupuncture in Malaysia and Tibetan singing bowls in Nepal. He is a yoga and qi gong instructor, as well as being an experienced therapist for many years.

  • Tibetan singing bowls produce an exceptional and powerful sound with vibration that results in curative and healthy effects along with spiritual transformation.
  • Crystal Chakra Balancing involves placing crystal and Himalayan stones on each energy center, combined with Reiki and chakra balancing techniques to create openings for life energy to flow.
  • Working on your meridians (energy lines), the techniques in Royal Thai Meridians follow muscular-tendon lines, applying pressure in varied intensity to release stiffness and tension, improve circulation and increase energy flow.
  • Slimming Detox combines Chinese cupping and slimming massage techniques which reduce cellulite, tighten and tone muscles, break down fat and aid the release of  toxins, which are drained by the lymphatic system.
