Health and Wellness Retreat

Mandarin Oriental Canouan
St. Vicent & Granadines

Health and Wellness Retreat with Traditional Chinese Medicine Techniques
December 7, 2020 to January 17, 2021.

Canouan Island, also known as “Turtle Island”, offers natural beauty, untouched beaches, calm seas and gentle breezes. Tailor-made to relax and recharge your batteries: physical, mental and spiritual.

Within the scope of traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Rui Pedro Loureiro, at the invitation of the Mandarin Oriental Canouan Spa, created several programs for a health and wellness retreat, with the aim of providing his guests with a vacation concept totally focused on the same. With daily acupuncture sessions, combined with healthy eating and leisure activities, you will better enjoy a vacation that will help you recover more quickly the energy and health lost in this unusual year.

Treatments of the Health and Wellness Retreat:

Acupuncture treatments include making a consultation to survey the patient's complete, general and detailed health history, considering their lifestyle, helping to formulate an appropriate treatment plan. The diagnosis focuses individually on the disease and the symptoms presented.

In this specific case, Dr. Rui Loureiro has a set of programs prepared for short stays of 3, 5, 7 and 14 days in order to give his patients quick results during these periods. Of these programs we highlight:

  • Readjust the biological clock for those who suffer from sleep problems.
  • Digestive system for those who have reflux problems, gastritis or slow digestions.
  • Pain management for those suffering from chronic or acute pain and who are looking for a different solution to an old problem.
  • Anxiety and stress.
  • Regeneration and energy for those who are constantly tired.

And in the 14-day programs we have weight loss, localized fat, cellulite and “healthy aging”.

In this retreat, it will also be possible to stop smoking using Dr. Rui Loureiro's exclusive method in a simple, easy and effective way.

Quitting smoking is hard work to do alone, given that abstinence causes an imbalance in the nervous system and often leads to the failure of those who try alone.

In this case, Dr. Rui Loureiro will help patients with a proven and effective auricular therapy to help stop smoking by minimizing cravings and calming the nervous system. Gentle electrical stimulation is performed on the outside of both ears, like ear acupuncture, without the use of needles. The average success rate for this treatment is between 85%-90% and there is no need for patches, nicotine lozenges or tablets.

In addition to treating the psychological and therapeutic part, there are also aesthetic treatments such as holistic facial rejuvenation, which involves doing cosmetic acupuncture for wrinkles and sagging. Likewise, acupuncture is performed to treat cellulite, helping the body to look and feel younger, rejuvenated and revitalized.

In the last few decades, genetics has made incredible advances that allow us to evaluate practically all of our genes. In this health and well-being retreat, Dr. Rui Loureiro also decided to bring the epigenetic hair test to the guests of Mandarin Oriental Canouan. This method provides information about your levels of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, fatty acids, antioxidants and environmental contaminants, analyzing the 15 most common vitamins, 23 main groups of antioxidants, 16 daily minerals, 115 dietary restrictions, food additives, all 23 amino acids and omega 3, 6 and 9.

Epigenetic testing provides lifestyle and dietary recommendations to optimize your patients' health.

Acupuncture and Epigenetics

During these days, the essential thing is to provide well-being with the most current diagnostic techniques and with the integrative and complementary therapies that are acupuncture and epigenetics. The program is 100% personalized and adapted after an assessment of the patient's health status.

Patients have the right to pamper themselves during their stay at the Mandarin Oriental's Spa, performing some activities dedicated to them. The program can be requested at the time of booking or on arrival. In the initial consultation, your health condition will be evaluated and the best strategy to be adopted so that you can have a “healthy vacation” in the best possible way and think about 100% will be suggested.

A way to dedicate yourself to your health and well-being in the paradise of the crystal clear waters of the island of Canouan. Detoxify your body, re-energize, achieve stress relief, reset your biological clock, sleep better, balance your emotions and eliminate pain.
