|Spa – Luxury and wellbeing
The Conte Max does not just offer the comfort of any other yacht; we have developed a concept of cruise which combines the regenerative wellbeing inspired by such a breathtaking location as the Maldives with a rather unique concept of on-board wellbeing, represented by a small SPA specialising in Ayurvedic treatments. A masseur is always on board who is joined by an Italian doctor for special cruises dedicated to Ayurvedic medicine.
The word Ayurveda means life science and has been considered to be a medical practice since time immemorial.
This ancient therapy, dating back over 6,000 years, will purify you from the toxins which are obstructing your energy channels, while natural oil- and herb-based massage will relax both your mind and your body.
The oils are prepared fresh each day with years-old dedication and experience, using herbs and ingredients from the ancient Ayurvedic culture and are then applied to all the body for the Marma Point Massage, the best-known treatment. For about one hour the masseur’s hands caresses each part of the body rubbing muscles and joints with light pressure of varying intensity. This healing massage invigorates and regenerates the immune system giving a pleasurable sensation of strength and energy combined with a state of inner calm.
Our guests will also be able to enjoy treatments against cellulite, compresses and face packs, and treatments against back and joint aches with 100% natural therapies in the totally unusual environment that is a boat in the middle of the sea. According to Ayurveda, beauty treatments for the body are extremely important for the general wellbeing of the whole organism and are considered to be some sort of external cleansing to be carried out following purification.
For this reason the preparations on board are not limited to massage oils and mixes for beauty treatments, but also include purifying infusions of leaves and natural roots mixed according to the therapeutic requirements of those who wish to take advantage of this chance to get rid of the toxins accumulated through a wrong or unsuitable diet. After a few days of total relaxation time slows down and even psychological tensions become a memory which will completely disappear when watching the wonderful sunsets while practising the Pranayama, the yogic breathing technique which allows one to regain balance of energy and relax the mind.
