Maui Resort Invites Doctors to Share Health Tips

When one thinks of "wellness" at hotel spas, one generally thinks of yoga and light lunches. This program, though, sounds wonderfully unique. The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maui has invited Jacob Liberman, O.D., PhD., a pioneer in the field of phototherapy, to kick off the first of 16 weekends of the new Fall Wellness Series.
 
The first weekend is set for September 2-5. Dr. Jacob Liberman believes a great deal can be done – starting with young children, and with teens and adults alike – to restore and enhance vision naturally. He will talk about the role the eyes play in learning and he will discuss and demonstrate exercises which can help improve eyesight and make vision more resilient. He also will offer intensive one-on-one optional private sessions to The Spa’s Wellness Series participants.
 
The special four-day wellness weekends, which continue through December 19, will be led by a different expert each week. The featured guests are among today’s top lifestyle practitioners who are mapping out new ways to influence lifelong health in such fields as holistic medicine, sound and vibrational healing, Reiki, Rolfing, naturopathy, energy healing, meditation, and fitness and high-performance exercise. Weekend series events are open and free to hotel guests; $25 for non-hotel guests. This program is only available at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.
 
Among the upcoming series practitioners and topics in September: Dr. Malik Cotter on “A Wellness Sampling including Tai Chi, Qigong and Living Well,” September 9-12; Dr. Arthur W. Harvey on “Sound and Vibrational Healing,” September 16-19;” and Eve Eschner Hogan on “Labyrinth and Discussion,” September 23-26.
 
Four Seasons Resort Maui fall room rates start at $445 per night, plus tax, for mountainside accommodations through December 16. For reservations and more information, visit www.fourseasons.com/maui.
