Spa Treatments by Blood Type



Angie Thien for "Why in Spa"
March 16, 2011

Are you a hunter?


Is life all about goals?  Do you see yourself as a strong leader?  If you are more creative and independent, you just might be a nomad.  But if life is about harmony, and affection then you're probably a cultivator.  


If this sounds familiar then perhaps you've heard about Japan and Taiwan's craze for personality profiling by blood type, or the Blood Type Diet made popular by Dr. Peter J D'Adamo.  Hunters are type O's, Cultivators A's, and Nomads are B's.  A new comer into the scene is Blood Type Spa Therapies, and the first to bring this concept to Bangkok is Spa Athéneé at Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel.


From the four major blood groups (A, B, AB, and O) special oils and techniques are used to help boost your immune system and repress weaknesses.  The oils are designed to holistically enhance your health using fresh herbs, spices, fruits, and finely ground gemstones in a special blend that the spa calls Immunetra

Spa Athéneé has different menus for men and women (Monsieur and Madamme respectively.)  The Monsieur menu focuses on using red wine, with Golf Revival (THB 3,900++), and Cryotherapie Age Defying Facial (THB 2,900++) while the Madamme menu uses white lotus treatments with options like Post Shopping Therapy (THB 3,900++), Cheers! Pre Party Elegance (THB 2,900++), and more.  Both include Blood Type Therapies in the form of massages, exfoliations, and wraps.


So what is a typical blood type spa treatment like?  At welcome, you will get a Blood Group Consultation while sipping water lily tea.  If you have a special blood type outside of the usual ABO, the therapist may allow you to select between predetermined oils.  You will then be escorted to a private treatment room where a rose petal footbath awaits, using red wine milk and a lotus salt scrub.  The therapist will then guide you through your treatment depending on what you've chosen (massage, scrub, or wrap.)  The blood type massages are similar to a muscle relaxing oil massage, using both long and short strokes the weed out daily tension in problem areas like the back, shoulders, and legs.  Techniques differ by blood type, and whether or you are male or female.  


Win a Spa Treatment!  Want to try out Spa Athéneé courtesy of W5 Magazine and Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel?  Write us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and tell us what the special oil blend used in the Blood Type therapy is called. Contest ends March 28th, 2011.  Correct answers will be included in a lucky draw, and winners will be announced in our March 29th newsletter!
