Sleep Enhancement

15th May 2012
The New Sleep Enhancement Wellness Program
Available from June 1st, the Sleep Enhancement program will be the newest addition to Kamalaya’s ten existing wellness programs.
Kamalaya co-founder Karina Stewart, doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, formulated the Sleep Enhancement program in response to a need from guests. “A high proportion of our guests mention sleep as an issue and concern in their lives – most are suffering from disruption to a healthy sleep cycle whether it is poor quality sleep, insufficient sleep or an inability to fall asleep. This program is a vital addition to our portfolio as we know sufficient quality sleep is a key ingredient to optimal wellness and vitality.”

The focus of the Sleep Enhancement program is to re-establish healthy and restful sleep while addressing sleep issues and imbalances, during a guest’s time at Kamalaya and also for the long term back home.

Sleep difficulties will be addressed through a combination of core treatments and therapies drawing from naturopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, massage therapy and mind-body balance. Treatments will incorporate Shirodhara, Royal Ayurvedic massage, acupuncture, yoga, herbal foot baths with foot massage, the addition of herbs & supplements as well as mentoring to deal with lifestyle factors and personal issues.

This program will be both a stand-alone program within the category of Healthy Living, as well as an add-on to some of Kamalaya’s other programs.
Sleeping issues can have a base in a range of different health imbalances. Various reasons for disturbance include; biochemical, physiological, lifestyle, dietary, psychological and emotional causes. An inadequate amount of sleep has been associated with higher risks of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and more recently colon cancer. Stanford University’s Sleep Laboratory Founder and Director Dr. William

Dement, says “Healthful sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most important factor in predicting longevity, more influential than diet, exercise or heredity.”

Depending on the cause it can take from days to months to re-establish a good sleep cycle. With the Sleep Enhancement program we hope to address as many factors as possible during a guest’s visit. Programs of various lengths will be available to choose from starting with a five night minimum.

Karina says “We have put together a powerful combination of tailored treatments, advice and remedies to combat sleep deprivation. This therapeutic and preventative program will address life’s stresses and strains as well as health imbalances which deplete sleep quality and impact an individual’s health”.

Kamalaya already offers recommendations for healthful sleep through dietary advice, an optimum sleeping environment (including pillow suggestions) and life mentoring, with the addition of this specific Sleep Enhancement program we are perfectly equipped to target poor quality sleep, a very real need and health concern for so many today.
