This month, Four Seasons Hotel Doha invites guests to experience the extensive healing benefits of Dien Chan reflexology and acupuncture from traditional Chinese medicine practitioner Alex Scrimgeour.

Developed in Vietnam, the Dien Chan reflexology treatment begins with a short consultation to identify key health issues in order to personalise each treatment and create the most powerful change. Each treatment is tailoured to the individual and brings calmness and harmony to both mind and body.

According to Senior Director of Spa & Wellness Center, Ori Evapudan:

Based on a recognition that the face is deeply connected to many aspects of our health, these treatments help map out these connections and harness them for healing and rejuvenation. We are passionate about continuing to deliver bespoke experiences that reinvigorate our guest’s relationship with their skin.

In addition to the many potent healing and beauty enhancing effects including facial rejuvenation to create a natural face lift, guests can also benefit from enhanced quality of sleep as well as the ability to combat back or neck pain, migraines, stress, poor digestion and hormonal imbalance. The treatment also improves the overall complexion by releasing tension to increase facial tone, lustre and brightness.

The wellness treatments that will be performed by Alex at the Spa & Wellness Center will include Dien Chan facial reflexology, Full body reflexology and Acupuncture which will be available exclusively from 15 to 30 September.
