Ayurvedic rituals inspire Thalgo’s new Mer des Indes treatment and retail line

Thalgo has formulated a new five-step spa treatment and retail range in collaboration with Ayurvedic specialist Nordine Meguelatti.

Marian Harvey, Thalgo’s UK managing director, explained the principles underpinning the treatment.

“The new Mer Des Indes ritual draws on Ayurvedic practices already well known within spa circles,” she says, “namely Abhyanga and Shirodhara via a head and body massage, along with the science of Marmas and Marmatherapy.”

Marmatherapy is an Ayurvedic massage technique that works on points of energy blockage at junctions between muscles, tendons, bones and nerves.

The treatment journey includes a warming hand and purification ritual, a head massage, exfoliating scrub and a harmonisation massage inspired by Marmatherapy. Stretching manoeuvres from Hatha yoga and musical frequencies to relax the mind are also incorporated.

To conclude, guests are gently rocked and stretched by therapists before enjoying a soothing cup of herbal tea.

Thalgo has also created four retail body products to help guests continue the rituals of Ayurveda following the treatment.

The range includes a Ginger Exfoliating Scrub, Soothing Massage Oil, Aromatic Shower Oil and Moisturising Silky Balm, each of which is infused with a marine complex of Indian red algae and coriander, sage and cypress.
