Italian Hospitality Collection’s award-winning Fonteverde Spa, Tuscany, has today announced the introduction of an exclusive range of eastern-inspired treatments designed by its resident spa guru, Dipu.
The collection of six signature treatments offers an incredible wellness experience, fusing the healing properties of ancient Eastern medicine with the restorative benefits of thermal water from the resort’s natural hot springs.
Drawing on over two decades of experience, Dipu tailors the treatments and the duration of the session according to each guest’s unique physical and mental condition, helping them to regain a deep sense of well-being and energy.
38°C thermal water is incorporated into each and every therapy, minimising gravity and warming the muscles to allow for a greater effect on the body.
The signature treatments, which tackle a variety of issues from stress and anxiety to physical pain and tension, include:
- Dhara €150, up to 90 minutes
A traditional ayurvedic therapy, this deeply-relaxing massage sees the therapist slowly and continuously slide a unique blend of oils into the centre of the client’s forehead, relieving tension and stimulating pressure points to create a deep sense of pleasure and rejuvenation.
- Reflexology Pada €120, up to 90 minutes
A foot massage with an effect on the entire body. During this treatment the therapist applies pressure to the acupressure and reflexology pressure points in the feet, which correspond to the body’s various organs and systems. Reflexology has known health benefits and can decrease anxiety, improve headaches, enhance wellbeing and even complement cancer treatment.
- Dipu Five Senses Massage €320, up to 90 minutes
A multiple phase treatment including a facial peel using a special blend of aromatherapy and essential oils, a hydromassage bath perfumed with healing ayurvedic plants, an anxiety-busting Shiatsu massage, acupressure therapy and a Shirodhara technique involving the gentle pouring of aromatherapy oil over the forehead.
Dipu has always been fascinated by the human body and puts great passion and energy into his work. Specialising in Ayurvedic massage, a skill he first learnt in India, Dipu also offers Shiatsu, Namikitis, Chinese Zu techniques.
