Five-Star Mandarin Oriental, Boston is celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8 – and Women’s History Month throughout the month of March – with the relaunch of its unique and holistic Embodied Wellness programs and other offerings.
The hotel will offer a special amenity for female guests beginning on International Women’s Day and throughout Women’s History Month: a surprise and delight take-home amenity of strength chakra healing crystals, amethyst and rose quartz. Amethyst is believed to dissolve negativity and activate spiritual awareness, and rose quartz provides healing and is said to be the stone of unconditional love.
To honor women everywhere, Mandarin Oriental, Boston is relaunching its women’s empowerment coaching and guided meditation offerings that create a connection with your mind, body and spirit. The coaching offerings are part of a suite of Inner and Outer Strength programs led by The Spa’s highly trained health and wellness experts. As the first and longest running Forbes Five-Star Spa in Massachusetts, it’s the only Forbes Five Star Spa in the state with the coaching and mindfulness offerings included in Embodied Wellness.
The Spa is pleased to continue its exclusive partnership with longtime Women’s Empowerment Coach, Kira Hower of Cambridge, Mass. A Women’s Coach for more than 20 years with clients from across the globe, Hower offers a technique that is highly customized to each guest based on her goals, helping women strengthen their voices by tackling topics such as powerful communication, relationship wellness, perfectionism and influencing with impact. The Second Spring 40+ coaching program includes midlife transitions and visioning, creating and sustaining vibrant relationships, celebrating the aging process and declaring your deepest desires. The program will chart a dynamic path for this powerful stage in a woman’s life.
Held in the relaxation of the Spa or the privacy of your Guest Room, the Spa also offers Mindful Meditation (50 minutes; priced at USD 225 on weekdays and USD 250 on weekends) and Journaling and Intention Setting (50 minutes; priced at USD 225 on weekdays and USD 250 on weekends) with highly trained health and wellness professionals. The guided meditation allows for a transformative experience to clear and focus one’s mind and relieve stress, and Journaling and Intention Setting is a personalized and grounding experience to help visualize intentions, put them into words, set goals and map out strategies – all of which also increase both emotional and physical energy.
Women looking to celebrate on a getaway with their friends during March are encouraged to experience our Spa Getaway, which includes a USD 300 Spa treatment credit per stay (subject to availability and not applicable on retail items.) Bookings for the Spa Getaway overnight package also include a Spa Sleep Kit amenity, a 10 percent retail discount in the Spa Boutique, complimentary valet parking, breakfast for two, a late checkout and more. As always, hotel guests have full access to all our Spa facilities during their stay including the Crystal Steam Room, Experience Shower and Relaxation Lounge, Fitness Center and Vitality Tub.
