    Our Water Healing sessions are conducted in our purpose built Watsu hydrotherapy pool, the first one of its kind in Hong Kong and an exclusive experience of Fivelements.

    Water Healing Journey

    90 min 2.400
    Begin with guided breathing and relaxation before stepping into the pool, inviting a deeper process of trust and surrender once in the water. Setting healing intentions for the session, consider the pool as a sacred space dedicated to your healing and blossoming of your spirit. As you glide seamlessly through the water, let yourself go as the therapist follows subtle cues from your body and breathing to guide the session and your graceful unfolding. If you are naturally at home in the water, take the opportunity for underwater submersions, entering a dream-like state and the sensation of freedom, lightness and the exhilaration of flying through space.

    The Art of Mindfulness with Michael

    45 min 1.280

    Mindfulness is a moving meditation that can be applied in every moment. It is the easiest to integrate and find immediate benefits in daily life. Beginning with awareness of the breath and the senses we become more present and appreciative of the simple things in life. As our practice deepens we traverse more subtle realms of thoughts and emotions. Acknowledging our moment by moment experience without judgement, we create a space for unconditional love for ourselves and others.

Subtle awareness, yogic breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques reveal peace and train us in the art of contentment.

    Yoga as Medicine with Michael

    75 min 1.450

    Treat your health condition with a yogic prescription of postures, breathing, relaxation, meditation, and purification techniques. Over thousands of years yogis have developed techniques for health, longevity, and peace of mind. Postures, breathing, relaxation, meditation, and purification techniques combine to alleviate some of our most common health problems today. Yoga is a unique health treatment, because it focuses both on removing the health complaint as well as the underlying imbalances in lifestyle that cause or contribute to the problem. A yogic prescription emphasises one’s own responsibility for health and the power to heal with the relevant tools. All stress-related conditions can be dramatically improved with the right application of yoga.

    Prana Shakti

    60 min 1.380
    Rest while you recharge your life force energy through light touch and meditative guidance.

    Prana is one of the invisible aspects of our being, or niskala in Balinese understanding, yet it is the vital life-sustaining energy of the body. Prana Shakti encourages health by stimulating the subtle energies of the body. With light touch or hands above the body, the therapist clears stagnant energy and fills depleted energy to help with fatigue, headaches, digestion, wound healing, even mental fog and emotional unrest.
    Begin by entering a trance-like state through a guided meditation and breathing. As the therapist’s hands pass above your body you may feel sensation of relief and spaciousness. As hands rest comfortably on your body, experience warmth and even tingling spreading into your body to accelerate the body’s natural healing power. Emerge from a sensation of floating into a newfound clarity, peace, and power.

    Dan Tien Rejuvenation

    90 min 1.680
    Gentle abdominal massage to detoxify and revitalise the digestive system

    Vibrant health depends on the vital power in the abdomen, the lower dan tien, where the healthy flow of blood and chi creates robust health. When the dan tien is weakened through neglect, emotional stress, poor diet, tension, toxins and stagnant energy, our vitality and mood are greatly compromised. Based on the centuries old Chinese practice of Chi Nei Tsang (Taoist internal organ massage), Dan Tien Rejuvenation combines gentle massage and energy work to increase circulation to the abdominal organs, detoxifying, cleansing and invigorating the entire digestive tract and energetic system. Gentle massage releases muscular knots hidden in the belly, resulting in freedom and lightness in the body as well as mental clarity and emotional ease. This treatment is a must for those suffering poor digestion, wind, constipation, irritable bowel, heartburn, or fatigue.

    Please attend the session on an empty stomach, at least 2 hours after a meal. When possible, we recommend a series of 3 treatments for the most profound results.
