Science at the spa

September 21, 2021 - Relaxing hydrotherapy, mood-boosting LED chromotherapy, rejuvenating Cryotherapy and on-demand fitness training are all creating a buzz at Six Senses Spa Douro Valley. Plus, last spaces are available at our WiseMotion Retreat from November 1 to 4.

  • News 3 Sept

We’ve known for a while that one-size-fits-all wellness solutions don’t work. Thanks to the latest science and technology – and our leading experts in their field – the spa just got a whole lot more personal at Six Senses Spa Douro Valley.

An initial wellness check-in that uses the latest biofeedback tools to prescribe your bespoke wellness plan and custom nutrition advice. An action-packed fitness session you can follow on demand. Wellness Days to rev up your brain, your immunity and your purpose. And a four-day WiseMotion retreat to improve mental and physical well-being with movement, meditation, and neuroscience. Here are just some of the highlights at our beautifully renovated 19th-century manor house, which we think you’ll agree is a perfect setting for rural relaxation.

Take to the water

Tap into the healing powers of water in the indoor pool while immersing in the floor-to-ceiling garden views and resetting the mind with underwater sound therapy. Let your tension bubble away with the massage jets and focus on the changing colors of the LED chromotherapy lights.

Recover like a pro

Cryotherapy is a full-body rejuvenator that is lauded for shortening recovery times following a workout while revamping your metabolism and slowing the aging process. What’s not to love?

Train on your time

In the exercise studio, there’s a new floor-to-ceiling mirror that doubles as a screen to stream dance classes including Zumba and Salsa, from across the world, live and on-demand through our partnership with Wexer. Get your feel-good endorphins pumping through your bloodstream to your own beat and on your own time frame!

Get hands on

At the interactive Alchemy Bar, you can create your own scrubs and masks from herbs, fruits and spices grown in our gardens. Our senses and preferences change over time, so this is a great way to concoct a potion that smells and feels just right for where you’re at right now.

Taste the wine

No more food-fearing, deprivation fat farms! Six Senses Douro Valley is set among vine-covered rolling hills so kudos to our sommeliers for their list of organic and biodynamic wines, which you can sip while having your nails done.

Reduce irritation

Tackle specific health issues through a bespoke consultation with our qualified practitioner Marta Gomes, who specializes in therapeutic massage, lymphatic drainage, individual Pilates classes, and visceral manipulation therapy. The latter uses very gentle techniques to help your organs release and move more optimally. Once normal movement has been restored, the blood supply will improve along with the root cause of any pain.

For more information, please email Marta Gomes at marta@martagomessaude.pt

Spend four transformative days with Dr. Hanna Poikonen

The WiseMotion method is based around four workshops: Long-lasting Stress Relief; Emotions, Intelligence, and the Plastic Brain; Optimal Brain Functions for Creativity and Innovation; and Mental Clarity and the Brain in Concentration. These form a series to understand the brain processes of cognition, emotion, and rest. It was developed by Dr. Hanna Poikonen, a neuroscientist, dancer and movement specialist.

Hanna is bringing her vast skills and experience to Six Senses Douro Valley from November 1 to 4, 2021.
