Vidanta is renowned for its exquisitely beautiful courses, but even the most spectacular natural beauty can become background to the noise in your head. And sometimes you may be more in the mood for a treatment than a training session—especially if they’re not mutually exclusive. Enter the Vidanta Golfer Therapeutic Massage: one of a series of exciting new treatments developed by Spatium to enable focus without strain in the mind as well as the body.
Spatium Wellness director Svetlana Nadírova points out that the golf swing, however familiar a movement, is fundamentally an intense, one-sided event that can tire and limit the muscles over time. The Golfer Therapeutic Massage offers a comprehensive treatment combining the precision and pressure of traditional massage, with focused stretches, an herbal compress on specific acupressure points, hot stone placement, and aromatherapy relaxation, resulting in a one-of-a-kind experience that lets you start your game long before you select a club.
More than a basic massage, this treatment offers healing recovery and performance enhancement, whether you’re looking for post-play restoration or pre-conditioning. Therapists focus on relaxing the main muscle groups relevant to play—the back, hamstrings, hip flexors, shoulders, forearms, and wrists–to improve flexibility, and build necessary power.
It’s said that the brain behaves like a muscle. In the past five years, use of essential oils and positive thinking as golf aids has increased considerably, empowering golfers to better overcome the odd bad shot and reduce overall stress. Incorporating aromatherapy into its arsenal, Spatium uses a special essential oil blend called—wait for it—“True Score,” expressly formulated to encourage that relaxed-yet-plugged-in state that typically accompanies your best work. Combined with a host of other techniques, aromatherapy offers an all-natural source of mental clarity and boosted confidence.
Will positive, mindful play reduce your handicap? It couldn’t hurt. In fact, it’ll likely feel fantastic. Contact your concierge on your next visit to Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta to schedule this unique treatment.
