Tailored to meet guests’ individual wellbeing needs, Amanemu’s bespoke Immersions are restorative journeys to wellness, incorporating private movement and specialist therapy sessions, spa treatments and complete nutritional support. Lasting a minimum of three days, each is developed to achieve defined personal goals, to promote an enduring sense of inner peace, and to encourage profound, meaningful change in lifestyle and outlook.
Mindfulness & Stress Management – The world moves fast, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the pace. Amanemu allows guests to make time for slowness, stillness and recalibration. This Immersion is designed to guide participants towards inner peace, equipping them with the skills necessary to reduce stress and anxiety in everyday life, sending them home happier, calmer and more centred.
Detox & Cleansing – Both physical and emotional wellbeing can be powerfully influenced by the health of the gut. Formulated exclusively to sustain the physiological and emotional equilibrium of the individual guest, Amanemu’s Detox & Cleansing Immersion focuses on improving the metabolic and digestive systems, using a bespoke combination of movement, nutrition, spa treatments and hot-spring therapy to detox the body, cleanse the mind and achieve lasting balance between the two.
Recovery & Recuperation – The mineral-rich hot springs on site make Amanemu the ideal destination for those seeking to recuperate and reenergise. A daily programme of water therapy in the resort’s onsen baths forms the basis of this Immersion, which, although targeted to guests who are recovering from illness or injury, is also suited to participants seeking to optimise their overall wellbeing.
Beauty & Slow-Ageing – Built on the principle that the signs of ageing are closely connected to overall health, Amanemu’s Beauty & Slow-Ageing Immersion aims to slow the signs of ageing by improving wellness from within, leaving individuals looking and feeling beautiful both inside and out. Drawing on a range of time-tested Japanese wellbeing practices, the programme is individually designed to relax the mind, strengthen the body, and reinvigorate the spirit.
Wellness from water – Japan has understood the healing power of mineral bathing since the days of the shogunate, when samurai would use onsen to restore their health and recover from the rigours of battle. As well as aiding in recovery from fatigue and injury and relieving pain, onsen bathing is effective in improving general wellbeing. Today, participants in Amanemu’s Immersions enjoy the same restorative benefits as the samurai, with all programmes incorporating sessions in the spa’s mineral-rich baths.
Herbal healing – Traditional Chinese Medicine travelled to Japan in the 4th century, and since then has evolved and adapted to become the herb-based healing practice Kampo. Like many ancient holistic systems, the discipline emphasises the importance of attaining balance between body and mind, with plant-derived cures and therapies at its heart. Amanemu’s Immersion programmes and spa treatments incorporate expert-blended Kampo formulations to achieve specific wellbeing goals.
A sacred setting – Ago Bay and the region surrounding Amanemu has been a place of pilgrimage and purification throughout history. Revered Shinto shrines abound in Ise, and further away, the Kumano Kodo pilgrim paths weave through the ancient forest. For centuries, people have come here both for the spiritual resonance of the setting and the mind-stilling natural beauty of the bay, its mountains, islands and greenery.
