Six Senses Home Office, Bangkok – 12 December 2013:
We are delighted to announce that Gopal Govindasamy has joined Six Senses Spa at the Pacific City Club as the Spa & Wellness Director. Gopal brings more than eleven years’ experience in alternative medicine and yogic science to the private club in Bangkok.
Gopal Govindasamy was born and raised in a multi-cultural village in the state of Tamil Nadu in South India, where his traditional herbalist grandfather worked as the village health guru. It came as no surprise therefore that a naturopathic path beckoned.
“I like to follow natural healing pathways which promote wellness without harming the body, so I started learning about naturopathy, acupuncture, yoga and nutrition, and it made so much sense. These gentle therapies address the underlying problem, rather than masking over it, and help people to feel better for the long term with no adverse side effects. I’ve met people who have been helped by these practices when no other western medicine has worked, and on a more personal level they’ve enabled me to improve my own health as well as that of my own family.”
Putting his money where his mouth is, quite literally eating by example, Gopal never pays a visit to the doctor, instead treating himself simply by eating the right food to rectify imbalances.
Previously Gopal worked in JCI-accredited Saad Specialist Hospital in Saudi Arabia for two years and Anantara Si-Kao and Anantara Phuket Resort and Spa in Thailand from 2008 to 2011. He received his Bachelor Degree from M.G.R. Medical University and a Master Degree from Madurai Kamaraj University, both in India.
Offering four unique and results oriented programmes; detox, de-stress, weight loss and quit smoking, Gopal has become renowned as an outgoing naturopathic consultant with a passion for his specialist health fields that takes personal health to a whole new level. He never tires of teaching clients about healthy lifestyle, body detoxification and food - explaining how to eat, what to eat, when to eat and how to combine.
“I take a detailed health history of the client, then based on their individual body needs, I advise treatments as well as healthy lifestyle tips. The majority of my clients are happy to have learnt more about how to take their health into their own hands and therefore follow the wellness 360-degree concept even when they return home. It is truly an enriching and rewarding experience to see how people have turned their lives around through my natural teachings!”
Six Senses Spa is very pleased to offer a complimentary Naturopathic consultation in order to encourage everyone to embrace a healthy lifestyle. Gopal will also provide wellness consultations, offering lifestyle and dietary advice to improve health, energy levels and peace of mind with a more natural lifestyle.
