Amatara Wellness Resort has joined with Bangkok Hospital Phuket’s Brain Health Institute to bring a world first in integrative health care. The brain health enhancement programme is a highly personalised and industry-leading programme that combines the highest level of preventative health care integrated with a luxury wellness vacation. The programme centres on the health and longevity of the most vital organ: the brain. Dr Prattana Punnakitikashem, Managing Director, Amatara Wellness Resort explains:“It is recommended for any adult seeking to understand from a personalised, integrative medical standpoint that lifestyle practices, sleep hygiene and diet are most beneficial to the brain. This includes preservation of cognition, circulation, memory, motor function and many other aspects needed for a healthy central nervous system. The programme helps to suggest ways to enhance and preserve brain health and prevent the decline of function over time.”The focus of the programme is on Alzheimer’s prevention and is highly recommended for three groups of people: Those with a family history of the disease, for the purposes of early intervention; anyone wishing to improve or maintain their brain health and cognition and take conscious steps against age-related cognitive decline; and individuals whose daily life includes a lot of stress or long working hours.The brain health enhancement programme begins within the comfortable setting of the Brain Health Institute, where an evidence-based approach is taken to understanding the patient’s health status. Over 2 nights and 3 days, patients are guided by a team of medical professionals through a series of tests and medical treatments. Between tests, patients can enjoy nutritionally personalised meals, one-on-one exercise, meditation and stress management, as well as accommodation specifically designed for high quality sleep and relaxation. Personal assistants are assigned to support and guide the patient throughout. The stay at the Brain Institute is followed by 5 nights at Amatara Wellness Resort. The partnership between the Brain Institute and Amatara means that patients can be sure that the interventions, dietary plan and exercise that have been recommended are seamlessly integrated into the resort stay, all within the luxurious wellness retreat setting of Amatara. Each room at Amatara, located in Cape Panwa, Phuket, enjoys majestic views of the Andaman Sea.
