The Lanna Ritual incorporates holistic traditions that have been passed down through the generations in Thailand. The treatment begins with a cleansing herbal foot bath, followed by a refreshing mint spray. For the full body massage, healing northern Thai plai massage oil is combined with Thai, Burmese and Chinese massage techniques to free energy blockages and enhances overall wellbeing, ending with a mini pressure point facial treatment to stimulate the circulation, relax muscles and rejuvenate vitality. The spa guest then awakens gently to the soothing sound of a singing bowl, leading into an inner healing ritual to conclude this distinctive spa experience. The guest washes their hands in a bowl of flowers and herbs to clear negative energy and makes a wish by writing their name on a golden heart shaped Bodhi leaf, which symbolises love, peace and wisdom, to hang on a temple tree or at home. To conclude the treatment, guest is invited to relax after their treatment with a ginger tea.

Another treatment to experience is Thai Herbal Compress treatment or Luk Pra Kob. This treatment has been used in Traditional Thai Medicine for over 400 years. To make the compress, a combination of healing herbs such as ginger, tamarind, lemongrass and shikakai is bundled together in accordance with ancient recipes, steamed and placed directly on the skin to soothe muscular aches and swelling. The steaming process releases essential oils with aromatherapy, which aid to improve many common ailment such as headaches, colds and allergies. Compresses are also used for pain alleviation, inflammation, skin diseases and system detoxification.
