A new sports program at Lefay Dolomiti

The luxurious ecological resort and spa, Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti in Italy. It has launched a new “Active & Balance” program that combines restorative outdoor mountain activities with spa treatments based on the five movements of classical Chinese medicine. Created by the Lefay Scientific Committee, the program uses the natural landscape around the resort as an open-air spa to enhance physical and mental well-being.

The complex is located in the Adamello Brenta National Park, a protected area of valleys, lakes, forests and glaciers. Each morning, guests take part in a variety of activities in the pure mountain air, accompanied by experienced mountain guides, followed by spa treatments and energy-balancing activities each afternoon. They visit the five different “paths” in the 5,000 square meter Lefay Spa World, each designed to target the five elements of classical Chinese medicine and the season and energies they represent. The program is designed to detoxify and rebalance energy flow and restore the body’s vital functions.

Using the innovative Lefay Wellness method, which integrates the principles of classical Chinese medicine with Western scientific research, the new five-night program begins with a medical examination with a spa doctor to assess energetic imbalances that could be leading to a physical disorder. This is followed by an acupuncture session, a fitness consultation and the prescription of a personalized medicinal tea.

Green Dragon Day: Representing spring and aimed at restoring feelings of restlessness, Green Dragon Day begins with a guided forest bathing session. This simple method of breathing deeply among the trees is designed to bring a sense of calm. The Green Dragon path in the spa includes a medium-temperature bio-sauna scented with rosemary and orange, as well as a sensory waterfall. Guests will enjoy an energetic Green Dragon massage that follows the energy lines linked to the liver and gallbladder in particular, while relaxing muscles and stretching meridians.

Red Phoenix Day: The Red Phoenix embodies summer and high energy, with therapies to help anxiety and sleep disorders. The day begins with a brisk guided cardio walk, followed by a Red Phoenix energy massage that acts on the energy lines corresponding to the heart. During the massage, olive oil scented with lavender, neroli or verbena essential oils is used to bring a sense of renewed energy. The Red Phoenix Path in the spa is a dry zone with hot Finnish saunas, cold baths and scents of lavender and passion flower. Here, guests can experience sauna stretching that uses gentle movements, heat, essential oils and breathing exercises to relieve tension, soothe muscles and eliminate toxins.

White Tiger Day: The White Tiger represents autumn and a time of reflection. The outdoor activity consists of guided meditation and breathing in the valley, followed by a White Tiger energy massage to balance the various energy points, with the aim of relaxing and increasing the body’s vitality. Eucalyptus and thyme essential oils are used during the massage. The day also includes a yoga session and time in the White Tiger area of the spa, which is a humid zone with high levels of steam and scents of mallow and blackcurrant.

Black Tortoise Day: The Black Tortoise represents winter, a time of hibernation to refocus and replenish energy. After a stroll along the river valley, guests will enjoy a Black Turtle massage to nourish the body and rebalance energy lines. A sense of calm is created in the spa’s Black Turtle Path with sessions in the saltwater lake and salt grotto, as well as a mud body scrub.

The Centre: The Centre is the heart of the spa and the place where all paths meet. A large hot tub is located here, offering mountain views and lemon scents. Guests will enjoy an energetic facial massage using essential oils to illuminate the skin and relax facial muscles. After that, they can choose to revisit the path that spoke to them most.

The Active and Balance program concludes with a final check-up and targeted recommendations for maintaining well-being at home.

Prices for the Active and Balance program start from 3,250 euros per person, based on two people sharing a Prestige junior suite for five nights, full board (excluding drinks) at the Dolomia restaurant, and include all program spa treatments.
