Banyan Tree Spa – Marina Bay Sands
We all love a world class spa. What do we need to know about yours?
Banyan Tree Spa seeks to offer guests a Sanctuary for the Senses – a place for physical, mental and spiritual renewal. As one of the pioneer oriental spas in Asia, the treatments focus on an exotic blend of ancient health and time-honoured beauty practices. All Banyan Tree Spas focus on a non-clinical and holistic approach based on Asian therapies and emphasises on a “high-touch, low-tech‟ approach that celebrates the human touch and the use of natural herbs and spices.
This philosophy is cascaded to all therapists who undergo training at the Banyan Tree Spa Academy. Each therapist goes through over 650 hours of theory and practical training encompassing all areas of spa therapy, including the human anatomy, important pressure points, modern and traditional massage techniques, facial applications, properties of various herbs and spices and service standards. In order to maintain the service standards and consistency, all therapists have to go through an annual assessment after completion of their training.
