Known for unparalleled luxury, the award-winning Talise Ottoman Spa has launched a wellness programme with a difference this November. The “Love Yourself At Every Stage” initiative focuses on treatments and therapies which are suitable for those touched by cancer and survivors, allowing them to enjoy 360-degree relaxation along with the pampering facilities at the world-leading Talise Ottoman Spa.
“For those touched by cancer and survivors, it’s important that all facials, massages and treatments are adapted for their specific needs and delivered by experienced therapists, whether they have just been diagnosed, or are in remission”, explains Talise Ottoman Spa Director, Afrah Hamdy. “We are proud to have trained wellness professionals who are now equipped to perform these special treatments safely, effectively and provide specialised care to those touched by cancer for their body, mind, and spirit, and to help them de-stress and feel better”. She added.
The Talise Ottoman Spa therapists have undergone intensive training directly with Julie Bach, the founder of the Wellness for Cancer (Training Board) from the US, and are all certified to offer special treatments including massages for those who have undergone surgery, have an open wound or lymph node sensitivities. Speaking about her work, she said, “Historically many spas didn’t want the responsibility, nor the reliability of cancer and I can think of no greater purpose for my life than teaching compassion to our industry and stewarding peace to individuals who are suffering.”
The internationally recognised wellness expert has launched similar pioneering projects around the world, and trained professionals at spas and wellness centres internationally on the needs of those touched by cancer and survivors. Julie and her team consult with cancer centres, oncology specialists, integrative medicine experts, and wellness specialists to establish treatments, including facials, massages and yoga.
“Across the board wellness has become increasingly important to our guests and as part of our strategy, we are focused on developing innovative health and fitness collaborations that enhance the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray experience. We want all of our guests, no matter what their situation, to enjoy our spa and wellness treatments and this programme is designed to help those affected by cancer to love themselves at every stage. As with all our spa programmes at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the new treatments are available for both in-house guests and members of the public,” said Mahmoud Sakr, the General Manager of Jumeirah Zabeel Saray.
Talise Ottoman Spa has launched a Twilight menu, which opens its grand oak doors for 24hours during weekends. A newly refined membership package is also comings soon which will encompass access to our gym, spa, infinity pool, pristine private beach as well many additional benefits, including food & beverage offerings.
