Pioneering and transformative wellness destination, Chiva-Som in Hua Hin, Thailand, has perfected the art of healthy long-term weight management.
Its Sustainable Weight Management retreat can be enjoyed with special rates during the summer “green season” until 30th September 2023.
Chiva-Som’s unique Sustainable Weight Management programme is designed for individuals who struggle with weight, particularly those who have “yo-yo” dieted in the past. Yo-yo dieting is frustrating and unhealthy: The repeated weight loss/gain cycle can increase the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
The Chiva-Som approach to weight loss involves long-term diet and lifestyle changes to ensure sustainability. It begins with a consultation and blood testing to identify any obstacles to weight loss, such as insulin resistance. A team of health and wellness consultants, chefs, trainers, and therapists then works with each guest during their stay and beyond to devise a highly personalised detox, diet, and exercise plan.
Most importantly, the programme provides guests with the knowledge and understanding needed to continue living a healthy lifestyle back at home, including calorie control and healthier food choices, different types of exercise and efficacy, and managing stress and, therefore, stress behaviours such as overeating.
Guests wishing to embark on the Sustainable Weight Management Retreat may benefit from current green season offers available until 30th September. These include a wellness credit of THB 1,000++ (approx. GBP25) per person per night which can be used towards treatments of their choice.
In addition, guests staying 10 nights or more will enjoy a complimentary Vital Genomic Test valued at THB 30,000++ (approx. GBP675). This elevates each weight management programme to an even more individualised level, with the ideal diet and exercise regimen drawn up based on the guest’s unique genetic makeup.
To enhance the optimal personalised experience for guests, Chiva-Som recently appointed a new in-house physician, Dr Thanikarn Supanich. Trained as an MD at one of Thailand’s most prestigious medical schools, Dr Thanikarn’s personal interest in wellness led her to specialise in nutrition, detoxification, and anti-ageing and regenerative medicine.
Until her appointment at Chiva-Som, she served at Thailand’s Preventive Medicine Institute for public health.
“Chiva-Som is known worldwide for its unique approach to wellness that combines the world’s healing traditions with modern medicine. Its philosophy of balancing mind, body and spirit aligns perfectly with my ethos of prevention through healthy living, and I am honoured to join its team of experts from many disciplines”, says Dr Thanikarn of her appointment.
Dr Thanikarn will oversee the genomic testing programme and work closely with Chiva-Som’s director of research and development to constantly innovate the brand’s offering and maintain its position as the world’s leading wellness pioneer.
