Emphasizing privacy, indulgence and health, a program called Maui Personal Spa Holidays is providing clients with personalized wellness vacations on the Valley Isle.
Each spa holiday begins with creation of a profile and nutritional assessment identifying a client’s needs, followed by the creation of an integrated program to achieve results, whether for rejuvenation, detox or weight management. Programs take place in the client’s private accommodations and include a wide selection of spa treatments, as well as traditional Asian and Ayurvedic therapies, yoga, Bindi Shirodhara, hot stone therapies and customized meal plans.
The program is a collaboration between chef Sabra Ricci, alternative medicine editor Cathy Wong and Tropical Villa Vacations.
“Maui Personal Spa Holidays is geared toward the person who desires privacy as well as physical and spiritual healing,” said Ricci. “We make it easy. Just choose your oceanfront estate, and we bring the spa and the cuisine to you.”
Ricci, a graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, has gained acclaim over the years for her detox cuisine. Her clientele ranges from Fortune 500 executives to Hollywood A-listers including Orlando Bloom, Courteney Cox, Julia Roberts, Tobey Maguire, Cher, Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy.
Wong is a licensed naturopathic doctor and nutritionist. She served as the co-author and consulting chef for a book called The Inside Out Diet, which features 50 of her nutritious recipes.
