The Earth Dog year is said to be one of action, requiring planning and energy in order to succeed. To celebrate Chinese New Year, which beings on 16 February 2018, Mandarin Oriental has launched the Year of the Earth Dog Spa Experience to ground and relax guests while rebalancing energy for both body and mind.
Available year-round at many of its spas globally, the treatment has been designed to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and ease pain and muscle tension during the year of the Earth Dog.
The 1hour, 20-minute Year of the Earth Dog Experience was inspired by the elongating, grounding yoga pose of the downward facing dog, and is designed to bring about a feeling of contentment, restoration and happiness.
Guests will be encouraged to connect with their core and feel grounded. The treatment utilizes the powerful effects of the Group’s bespoke Flourish Oil, which contains a blend of lemongrass, cardamom and coriander, to deliver an elongating, full body treatment, together with hot, healing stones, and a soothing abdominal massage; all designed to soften and release tension and revive the mind.
