Rosewood Hotels and Resorts begins the refreshing new year by embarking on a superior, holistic health and wellness journey at Asaya Hong Kong. The ultimate new urban wellness destination situated in the Rosewood brand’s home city of Hong Kong. Make self-change and transformation your utmost priority, you’ll find a nurturing and supportive environment at Asaya. Rosewood’s progressive wellness program can now be fully experienced across both a city hotel, with a focus on ongoing and holistic transformation, membership and community, and a remote resort, with an emphasis on retreats and cathartic programs.
We also recommend a visit to the Aroma and Tonic Ateliers that’s truly marvelous. You can choose your preferred ingredients and nourishing essential oils by Votary, prior to enjoying a full body exfoliation to promote circulation and cellular renewal, completed by an aroma massage. The Aroma Atelier by Asaya is priced at HKD $2,180 for 90 minutes of wonderful bliss.
We also loved our sessions with Terry Burge who is a Posture & Mobilisation specialists and working exclusively with Rosewood Hong Kong. He managed to find blockages and tension in our muscles but through a one hour session focused on uncovering physical and or emotional tension, we felt energised and only after a few days later did we feel the real results of our session. Through Spinal Mobilisation Therapy we not only learnt how pain can manifests in our body in hidden ways but how we don’t need to be carrying that around in our daily lives. For best results a few sessions would be useful and he’s also full of wonderful insight and happy to share tips and suggestions for better daily wellness habits. It was really an interesting session and great to see something like this available in Hong Kong. We also tried out their Sunday Riley facial, but stayed turned for next month for that review.
