Samahita Wellness Center Thailand

SAMAHITA WELLNESS CENTER

Herbal Steam Room: There are complimentary Steam Room Sessions daily from 6-8 pm

Close to the pool and with windows looking out to the beach is an herbal steam room, which uses a combination of thirty Thai herbs, plants, and spices. Here you can relax, detoxify, and rejuvenate yourself. With its special healing properties, we use Thai “Samonpi”, the herbal mixture, to be beneficial to the practice.

The best time for steam is later in the day, while enjoying the sunset and the early part of the night. To get the most out of it, you can alternate between dips in the sea or pool and five to ten minute sessions in the steam room.

Detox and Wellness at Samahita

The Detox & Wellness Center is housed at the heart of Samahita Retreat. It aims to guide you toward ‘Balanced Living’, through therapeutic

thaimassageand educational offerings. There are a number of holistic detox and wellness programs that can be added onto our Alchemy Tours retreat, and you can personalize these to to suit your needs and goals. Born out of a need to support the health & wellbeing of yoga practitioners, Samahita Wellness specializes in Ayurvedic as well as traditional Thai therapies.

The Wellness Center is the place where guests may seek holistic health advice, take a la carte therapies & workshops, purchase health products, browse through our Wellness Library or simply relax and enjoy a refreshing glass of cool, lemongrass tea.

The Detox Center is a hub of activity where all detox herbs, supplements, foods & juices are served. Detox guests come together here for the daily Detox Support Meeting (led by an experienced member of our Wellness Team) where they can meet fellow detoxers and share experiences. We invite you to spend time in our Detox & Wellness Center soaking up the warm, healing atmosphere and listening to the relaxing music while reading a book on wellbeing, enjoying a healing therapy or learning more about Balanced Living. We welcome you to enjoy Detox and wellness Thailand at our dedicated wellness resort.

At Samahita Wellness Detox Center we have taken every care to ensure that our treatment rooms provide the perfect space for relaxation. As is fitting for a yoga and wellness retreat, they are situated in tranquil surroundings, each room is well-appointed to take care of your every comfort, with music specially selected to enhance your experience. We have four treatment rooms both with natural air or with air con options, one detox treatment colon hydrotherapy room and one Far Infrared Sauna room.

Ayurveda Spa Therapy and Treatment

Samahita Retreat has a specially appointed room for Abhyanga and Shirodhara, which are Ayurveda treatments designed to bring all elements of your being into balance. This relaxing room houses the traditional Indian equipment used in our Ayurvedic healing treatments and is our Ayurvedic center. They take great care to ensure maximum comfort during your therapy session from soothing background music and lighting to ideal temperature. It really is a most soothing Ayurvedic Spa setting.

Colon Hydrotherapy

The Colon Hydrotherapy room offers a serene, therapeutic environment conducive to a healing treatment.  A comfortable, adjustable treatment couch, soothing music, qualified nurse plus experienced therapists and state of the art technology combine to create the perfect conditions for an effective Colon Hydrotherapy experience. Using the most advanced Colon Hydrotherapy equipment available on the market today, there are many unique, superior features to assure your comfort, hygiene and safety.

The Colon Hydrotherapy Equipment is operated and administered by a fully trained and qualified nurse with mild abdominal stimulation to encourage the movement. Additional abdominal massage therapy can be requested during the session by one of our therapists. Some of our detox programs and detox retreats include colon hydrotherapy in the package. Alternatively you can sign up for individual sessions.

Wellness Infrared Sauna Detox Therapy

Fitted with a number of Far Infrared heaters, the system emits Infrared energy which can be likened to the rays of the sun without the harmful UV element. Infrared radiant heat is absorbed directly by the body without having to heat the surrounding air, as with traditional saunas; the lower temperature of the Far Infrared sauna allows for more comfortable, longer session times and therefore deeper detoxification for detox wellness.

American research has shown that users of Far Infrared Saunas excrete up to 20% more toxins than users of conventional saunas. The toxins excreted in a Far Infrared Sauna therapy include cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid; these toxins are not released in sweat from normal exercise.

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy is an integral part of our Detox Programs and Wellness Spa Programs

The Finnish pine sauna comfortably accommodates two people so you can share a session with a friend or just relax with some soothing music while you sweat your toxins away as part of your detox therapy programs.

Guests are welcome to use the steam room at no charge; however, we do require that you sign up in advance. The best time to use our herbal steam room is later in the day, while enjoying the sunset and the early part of the night. To get the most out of it, you can alternate between dips in the sea or pool and five- to ten- minute sessions in the steam room.

Detoxifying Therapies

A Touch of Ayurveda (1-1.5 hours)

Ayurveda, ‘The Science of Life”, the ancient Indian system of Natural Healing that follows Nature’s Laws to achieve a balanced state of health. Applying our hand blended, natural Ayurvedic oil to balance Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas, in your choice of Swedish or Therapeutic massage. “A Touch of Ayurveda’ is a harmonizing treatment to bring equilibrium to your whole being whatever your constitution.

Therapeutic Massage (1-1.5 hours)

Our therapeutic massage is tailored to each individual’s needs, as well as promoting overall relaxation. You can discuss any concerns or areas of pain/tension with our therapist before the session begins. The sequence of massage will restore balance to body and mind. Extra attention will be paid to specific problem areas. This treatment is ideal for reducing muscular aches and pains, stress, anxiety and is for sports conditioning as well as relaxation.

Swedish Massage (1-1.5 hours)

This unique massage will melt away your tension leaving you feeling fresh and energized.

Sabai Massage (1 hour)

“Sabai” means “comfort” or “relax” in Thai. Our Sabai massage concentrates on pressure points along the spine and back to relieve tension, rebalance your nervous system and improve circulation.

Traditional Thai Massage (1-1.5 hours)

Originated in India, traditional Thai massage combines the art of thumb, elbow and palm pressure with full yoga stretches and along the meridian lines. It is unique in its energetic and physical reputation based on Ayurveda and yoga. Optional Herbal Compress.

Foot Reflexology Massage (1 hour)

This ancient method of healing is based on the theory that every organ, muscle and gland of your body is reflected in the ‘reflex points’ of your feet. The foot is divided into reflex points which are massaged during the treatment to clear the energy channels of the body, improving circulation and relieving tension. Optional Thai Herbal Compress.

Abhyanga

Abhyanga is a therapy that involves applying ayurvedic medicated oil to the body with a light to medium touch. Different from a regular massage, the oil is applied for its therapeutic benefits including grounding, relaxing and softening the muscles, ligaments and connective tissue. The heated oil causes the tissues to release built up toxins. Repeated applications of oil dissolves the sticky toxins, which build up in the tissues, and helps to revive the metabolism and reopen the channels, removing obstructions in the tissues. Abhyanga is one of the best treatments for balancing Vata dosha.

Galvanic Facial Treatment

Combine our relaxing facial massage with Nu Skin Galvanic treatment. This device uses a low level galvanic (electric) current to facilitate the transport of key ingredients into your skin for improved cleansing, hydration, circulation, and radiance.

The pre-treatment facial gels contain TEA Cocoyl Glutamate to purify your skin and allow your pores to breathe and soothing extracts of marigold, sea kelp, and vanilla. The treatment facial gels contain magnesium to promote cellular energy, arginine (amino acid) to facilitate recovery from stress. Aspartate (proteinogenic amino acids) helps to naturally balance your skin’s PH and pure vitamin E to help moisturize, condition and provide antioxidant protection.

Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage

This ancient Chinese holistic treatment focuses on “internal organ chi transformation”. Chi Nei Tsang literally means “working the energy of the internal organs”. This frees the blockages in the abdomen and guides the healing energy through the entire body, by massaging a series of points in the navel area with deep, soft and gentle touches. This detoxifying massage is excellent for those who have digestive and constipation problems, back pain and stress. It is particularly recommended on the days prior to and following a Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment.

Bali Yoga Retreat Testimonials

Our time at Soulshine was reinvigorating, almost transformative. I can’t imagine a more beautiful place – it’s like a slice if Eden. Everywhere you turn there was a new scene of lush beauty. And the staff was so great, you can’t help being happy just being there. The trip into Ubud is quick and cheap but going back to Soulshine was like going back to an oasis, removed from the entertaining bustle of Ubud. Walking down the long path from the road along the gurgling stream, passing by local fishermen, a local batik artist’s workshop and small tiered rice field and finally passing through the two yellow flags marking the beginning of Soulshine was like coming home to a place I didn’t know I was missing. Go. You won’t regret it.
Dr Lon, Chicago, January 2013

Soulshine grounds are stunning, set in the rice paddy fields with the most friendly staff I have encountered. No reason to go to any other restaurants in Ubud, the restaurant they have on site has divine dishes that will satisfy anyone (also caters to those with special dietary needs!)

balifunstufftodoThe yoga studio is set on the top floor of the main building and is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. The views are stunning from there and you can feel a light breeze passing through … you feel you’re in heaven. They also have high quality yoga equipment on site for use!
Nicole, LA, Stayed October 2012, traveled solo

My first introduction to Indonesia could not have been more sublime. As a yoga retreat center, we were surrounded by the most beautiful nature could offer. The staff of soulshine is warm and gracious.We were treated to breakfast with our yoga package of gorgeous fruits and other yummy delectables every morning. As much as I ate, you would think I should have gained more weight…but instead became leaner by the end of the retreat, partly due to the yoga and I’m convinced due to the freshness and preparation of the meals.
Genie, San Francisco, November 2012, traveled solo

“Imagine a place so beautiful and mystical. A place where lush vegetation and fields of rice patties fill the mountainous landscape. A place where everyone walking around is smiling from ear to ear. Food so incredibly fresh and delicious that you can’t wait until the next meal. That was my Bali and staying at Soulshine was even more of a slice of heaven. I couldn’t have imagined a more serene environment. Everywhere I turned there was a new scene of lush beauty, whether looking out of my cozy bedroom, the open air yoga room or lounging by the infinity pool, I was constantly seeing and breathing in the tropical environment. Wayan, Agung and the staff were so friendly and accommodating, from the first ginger mint smoothie to dinner with Agung and his family, I felt as if we were all lifelong friends and I was staying at their home. Bali was the most invigorating and transforming trip I had ever been on…it’s no wonder I lost track of time and worries, or as they say in Bali, “Kin Kin.” I already can’t wait until I go back.”
