SENSORY AWAKENING AT BAROS MALDIVES’ SERENITY SPA

28 March 2022 | All Blogs, Destination, Experience

Designed in harmony with nature, Serenity Spa is a haven of relaxation, a sanctuary hidden in the billowing Baros trees and invites guests to a sense-soothing journey. The treatment selections build on advanced western wisdom as well as wellness rituals that celebrate mother earth and her connection with life.

A highlight of the Serenity Spa offering is the product range and massage ceremonies developed by TheraNaka, a skin and wellness brand from Africa which focuses on using only the finest natural ingredients while honouring the environment.

The history of the Marula tree that grows wild across sub-Saharan Africa goes back thousands of years. It is a celebrated tree in Zulu culture and is known as the “Marriage Tree” as it is believed that those who marry beneath its branches will enjoy vitality and fertility all their days. There has also long been an African myth about the Marula fruit intoxicating elephants.

Today, Marula oil is known as Africa’s miracle moisturising oil and it features in Serenity Spas’  ninety-minute TheraNaka Awakening Massage.  The combination of breathing techniques with mesmerising rhythmic massage awakens the senses and revitalises the body.

The forty-five minute TheraNaka Vigour Back Massage features a blend of circulation-boosting essential oils of rosemary, pine and black pepper. Rosemary was considered sacred by ancient Greeks, Arabs and Romans, who used it to improve memory, as incense and as a reminder of the circle of life. Black pepper is known to reduce stress and anxiety and pine is known to have anti-inflammatory effects. Combined with a deep-tissue massage, this fragrant fusion soothes muscle pain. A refreshing gel containing extracts of Bladderwrack, Chamomile, Sea Minerals, Rooibos, Camphor, and Menthol is applied after the massage, leaving your entire body tingling with invigorated vitality.

The rhythmic beat of African dance inspires the TheraNaka East African Wood Massage which blends light stretching techniques, acupressure and the use of wooden instruments to soothe and restore. Warm olive and shea butter is drizzled onto the skin to nourish and heal.

Shea butter has been used as a therapeutic skin care lotion for centuries, dating back to ancient Egypt, where it was allegedly beloved by Cleopatra, Queen of Sheba and Nefertiti.

From heavenly aromas to botanical purity these unique massages offer a sense-soothing safari, replicating the earthy scents and the awe-inspiring wonder of the African continent.
