BAA ATOLL, REPUBLIC OF MALDIVES – Renowned wellness consultant and personal trainer Domingos Folgado returns to Vakkaru Maldives for another residency from 23 March to 18 April, covering the Easter and Spring break. With a loyal following of repeat guests at the resort, Domingos is highly regarded for his exceptional treatments and personal training sessions customised to each guest’s individual needs.

Moving from the soles of the feet to the crown of your head, this tailored treatment combines premium aromatherapy oils with ancient techniques to deeply heal your mind, body, and soul.
Muscle Release Massage
Using warm aromatherapy oil and deep tissue techniques to relax muscles, drain the lymphatic system, increase circulation, and improve energy levels, this treatment is customised to your preferences and combined with a healing music playlist to relax the brain.
Himalayan Salt Stone Massage
This therapeutic massage uses salt stones to decrease stress levels and increase relaxation, which can alleviate anxiety and promote deeper, rejuvenating sleep.
Mind Body Massage
This tailored dynamic massage therapy uses cranial balance, trigger point therapy, breath work, vagus nerve stimulation, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to help alleviate frozen shoulder, sciatic pain, neck pain, and facial paralysis, among others.
European Swedish Massage
Designed to invigorate the body and promote better overall health using techniques such as percussion, kneading, vibration, tapping, and rolling, this treatment is ideal for relieving aches and pains or for simply unwinding and relaxing.
In addition to these new therapies, Domingos’ signature treatments, including the popular Amno Fu and Gua Sha Facial, will also be on the menu during the residency. Guests can also consult him for tailored personal training sessions for weight loss, gaining strength, core conditioning, muscle toning, increasing flexibility and postural analysis.
