After assessment of your lifestyle and key stressors, your goals will be discussed, followed by the recommendation of practical tools and techniques to better manage the effects of stress in your life. These strategies may help you to feel more in control of situations, feel calm, think clearly and cope better in times of stress.

The following holistic medicine modalities are available at ANDA Spa and Holistic Wellness Village @ The Crest Resort and Pool Villas Phuket:
    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
    Traditional Chinese Medicine is the contemporary version of China's more than 3,000 year old medical system originating in Taoist philosophy. This ancient tradition is rooted in the recognition of the healing power of nature and the rhythms and cycles of life to which we are all connected. It is a comprehensive theoretical system based on the knowledge that vibrant health on all dimensions is the direct manifestation of a life lived in harmony with the principles of nature. The cycles, rhythms, and principles of nature are thought to be fully expressed within the human body in the form of the Five Elements. Therapies and treatments used include well established techniques such as Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Nutrition, Chi Gong and forms of Chinese internal practices (breath, visualization, and movement) for cultivating chi or vital energy and directing it towards the healing of self and others. Acupuncture An ancient Oriental healing technique based on ancient knowledge and Taoist understanding of energy principles and anatomy. In Chinese Medicine energy is believed to flow along pathways called meridians, and it should flow in a free and unobstructed way, much like your bloodstream. If it does not and there is a blockage, then dis-ease may result.

    Initial Consultation

    Your consultation begins with diagnosis, using TCM techniques such as pulse and tongue assessment, to help determine the most appropriate treatment program. Our TCM doctor will then prescribe a series of services to suit your condition. This initial session also includes treatment.
    Acupuncture aims to restore the flow of vital energy in the body for healing and revitalization. Miniscule, hair-thin, sterile needles are used on specific points (acupuncture points) in order to re-establish the flow of energy, correct imbalances, restore health, and bring about enhanced states of well-being physically, emotionally, and mentally. Acupuncture facilitates and supports the body's innate ability to heal itself and preventatively, to maintain optimal levels of wellness and vitality.

    Acupuncture Facial Rejuvenation

    Based on the ancient wisdom of China and using the finest acupuncture needles, this therapy stimulates and tones the facial muscles as well as enhances circulation, thereby oxygenating and nourishing the tissues, plumping up the skin, and smoothing away wrinkles. A revitalizing and rejuvenating treatment for the face. For best results, a series of five treatments is recommended. This is a unique and holistic anti-aging treatment.

    Moxabustion

    Using herbal heat to gently heal, this ancient technique uses warm herbs on specific points and areas of the body to increase blood circulation and vital energy. Heated herbs may be used on specific areas of the body to enhance the healing of chronic injuries or more generally to enhance immunity, vitality, and overall health.

    Cupping

    An ancient healing technique used throughout Asia designed to release blockages and improve circulation in specific areas of the body (neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, thighs). Recommended where there is body stiffness, muscular pain, and where increased circulation is desired.

    Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage

    Based on ancient forms of therapeutic massage from China and knowledge of energy pathways and points, Tui Na uses deep pressure and rhythmic techniques to re-establish the flow of vital energy throughout the body. Tui Na incorporates osteopathic, chiropractic and physiotherapy understanding to effectively treat structural imbalances and energy blockages throughout the body. This treatment gradually kneads toxic residues loose from tissues and into the lymphatic system for disposal.

    Naturopathy and Naturopathic Medicine

    Naturopathy, sometimes referred to as Naturopathic Medicine draws on a wide array of natural healing intervention and diagnostic techniques to promote optimal health and to treat as well as prevent disease. Naturopathic Medicine combines healing traditions of ancient India, China, and Greece with Western Herbal Medicine, and modern scientific principles and technology. Naturopathic treatments include Herbal Medicine, Nutrition and Detoxification, Flower Essences and Homoeopathy.

    Wellness Consultation

    You may choose to see one of our Holistic Consultants to discuss your personal goals and select the best treatment program to optimise your stay. This can be a helpful signpost for you to explore the many healing modalities offered at ANDA Spa and Holistic Wellness Village @ The Crest Resort and Pool Villas Phuket. Follow up consultations are also available to review the progress of your program.

    Wellness Follow-up Consultation

    Many of our scheduled wellness programs include a follow-up consultation. If you are doing a scheduled program of fewer than 7 days or a customised program, you may choose to see one of our Holistic Consultants to review the progress of your program.

    Naturopathic Consultation

    During a naturopathic consultation the practitioner looks at the person as a "whole" by reviewing signs and symptoms of all body systems, lifestyle and a brief review of diet. Treatment may include an individualised liquid herbal extract preparation, nutritional supplements and ways to optimise diet and lifestyle may be discussed.

    Iridology

    The science of iridology offers a non-intrusive insight into your mental and physical make-up and genetic predispositions – basically the 'blueprint' with which you were born. The therapist examines the iris and interprets your physical, mental and emotional tendencies, and then makes specific nutritional recommendations for health optimisation. Iridology can be very helpful as a diagnostic tool for those who take a proactive approach to good health.

    Homeopathy

    Based on the principle 'Let Like be Cured with Like', homeopathy uses minute doses of a substance to stimulate the body's vital force. This gentle yet powerful ancient healing art allows the body to balance and heal itself instead of fighting or suppressing symptoms. Prescribing a constitutional or 'complete' remedy can bring profound changes in acute or chronic ailments of a physical, mental or emotional nature. Physical, mental, and emotional thoughts and feelings are discussed including fears, dreams, and aggravating and ameliorating factors. Acute or 'first-aid' homeopathic prescriptions are also available. These are easy to use, and safe and effective for children, the elderly, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and even animals. They are also safe to use with other medications or herbal preparations.

    Nutritional Guidance

    Healthy eating is an integral part of Naturopathy. The naturopath will discuss your nutritional goals and look at current dietary patterns. Beneficial for people who already follow a 'healthy diet' as this session gives plenty of easy to implement take home advice, and takes an educational look at how foods work in the body. Individualised nutrition advice will be provided for any specific health conditions. ANDA Spa and Holistic Wellness Village @ The Crest Resort and Pool Villas Phuket emphasises wholesome food, as dietary habits play an important role in preventative and curative aspects of health. Nutrition plays a major role in restoring and maintaining health by supplying necessary nutrients to body cells for energy production, tissue repair, hormone production, and proper organ function.

    Flower Remedies

    Flower essences were used in Ancient Egypt as well as India, Asia, Europe, South America, and by the Australian Aborigines. This system was rediscovered and popularised eighty years ago in England by the work of Dr Edward Bach. Flower essences work quickly and deeply, addressing psychological, spiritual, and physical states relevant to today, to bring about harmony.

    When emotional balance is restored by the flower essences, true healing can occur. Dr Bach suggested that physical illness was actually a message from our higher self calling for a change in our mental outlook and way of living. Positive qualities that reside deep inside us are brought forth, and emotional blocks are removed by the essences. Their activation allows us to replace fear with courage, insecurity with self-confidence, and hatred with love, renewing your passion for life. During a flower remedy consultation your emotional and physical state will be discussed, allowing the practitioner to design a remedy formulated specifically to meet your needs.

    Far Infrared Sauna

    Far Infrared therapy provides deeply penetrating heat while maintaining a comfortable air temperature of 32-45 degrees Celsius. Use of far infrared sauna has many therapeutic benefits; it stimulates circulation, increases metabolism and burning of calories, and promotes detoxification to purify the body. This includes a possible reduction of heavy metal accumulation. Far Infrared therapy deep cleanses skin for a youthful appearance, reduces cellulite, and slows the ageing process because it promotes skin cell regeneration and unburdens the body of toxins. Various skin conditions may be treated and joint or muscular inflammation reduced. The Far Infrared Sauna promotes deep muscle relaxation to vanish tension and stress and a feeling of well-being is achieved. Please arrive at Wellness Reception with sufficient time before this treatment to drink the necessary water for hydration purposes.

    Colon Hydrotherapy

    Colon Hydrotherapy is a key treatment in any detoxification program, using warm water to gently cleanse the entire bowel. Colon hydrotherapy aids in the removal of plaque and waste matter which may have accumulated over many years creating blockages and sluggishness of our digestive system. Removal of this plaque allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently, setting you up for better future health. The benefits of detoxification and cleansing can be seen in an increased metabolism, the relief of digestive disorders such as constipation, and the improvement of any aliment that responds to treatment of sluggish liver including headaches, fatigue, irritability, skin conditions and many allergies. Cleansing the bowel is also said to bring clarity of mind.

    Using state of the art international equipment that is safe and hygienic, Colon Hydrotherapy is performed by a highly trained nurse or medical therapist. A series of 3-5 treatments may be required for the full cleanse. A herbal implant may be prescribed for you during this treatment as appropriate for maximum treatment benefits. Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage is recommended before each session for best results. Please see Wellness Reception for further information on Colon hydrotherapy treatment including preparation and after care.

Bio resonance harmonises the body's energy and stimulates meridian pathways where energy seems depleted. Therapeutically, it helps to boost energy and performance, increase metabolism for weight loss, improve circulation and regulate blood pressure. Bio resonance stimulates healing and reduces pain. It is used to improve digestion and enhance detoxification, to stimulate the immune system, and to increase wellbeing by promoting restful sleep and relaxation.

    Additional information about Detox

    Why Detox?

    Every day we are exposed to external toxins from our environment and internal toxins produced as the by product of our digestive and metabolic processes. Toxic and unwanted inorganic chemicals are found in our foods, water and air in the form of fertilizers, pesticides, heavy metals and other pollutants. Working in climate controlled environments is a source of airborne microorganisms and debris and home and work environments expose us to paint and carpet fumes. Everything from plastic containers to dry cleaned clothes to skin and hair care products and cosmetics bombard our bodies with unwanted pollutants. All of these fall in the category of environmental toxins.

    Our bodies also produce unwanted substances as the normal by product of our digestion and metabolism. In addition to this, we can accumulate waste products of any infectious microorganisms living in our bodies. If our body has the proper nutrition in sufficient quantities to provide a healthy biochemistry and if the organs of elimination and detoxification are functioning at optimal levels, our body is able to eliminate these unwanted substances safely and efficiently through cellular processes via the main organs of detoxification; skin, bowels, liver, kidneys and lungs. This manifests as elimination through perspiration, bowel elimination, urination and respiration. However, if the body is producing and taking in more toxins than it can safely eliminate, a state of chronic toxicity may occur.

    Most chronic illnesses are the result of a combination of factors. The main contributing factors, however, can be attributed to the presence of unwanted substances in the body or the lack of needed substances in the body and, in many cases, a combination of both of these factors. When the body has been overburdened with exogenous (external) and endogenous (internal) toxic substances for a prolonged period of time, it loses its capacity to detoxify at the same rate that toxins are being produced and ingested. It is under these unnatural conditions that we begin to manifest symptoms of being overloaded with toxicity and our organs are weakened. It is thought by many natural health professionals that this prolonged state of toxicity undermines organ and cellular function and is the underlying cause of many chronic diseases.

    The presence of unwanted substances in the body is a very common root of illness. The process of eliminating unwanted substances from the body at the cellular level addresses and corrects this imbalance. However, for effective detoxification it is essential to provide the body with the necessary dietary substances so that the body can perform this important and natural function. This is exactly what we will be doing on the program.

    "Detoxification" refers to the body's ability to neutralize and safely eliminate harmful chemicals within the body. The detoxification program is designed to enhance the body's innate ability to handle toxins. While it is unrealistic and virtually impossible to eliminate external toxins completely, the body can be unburdened and supported in its natural function of detoxification so that it is better able to cope with the daily stresses of modern life and thereby establish a higher level of health.

    Detoxification has a beneficial effect on most chronic illnesses because it has an impact on almost all systems of the body: cardiovascular, nervous, immune, respiratory, reproductive, gastrointestinal, urinary, skin, musculoskeletal and endocrine.
    - Improve your energy levels- Increase metabolism- Enhance weight loss- Restore your digestive system- Cleanse your liver and colon- Balance your hormones- Boost your immunity.
