The Spa features treatments and experiences such as massage therapies, scrubs, and spa indulgences using locally sourced natural ingredients that actively support sustainability and conscientious efforts. The Niyama Signature Massage is highly recommended with its warm bamboo sticks bringing comfort, relaxation, and relief. 

Niyama Reception Area

For couples looking for some quality time together can try the Couple’s Harmony, described as “a soothing and soulful journey that begins with a relaxing Foot Bath ritual followed by an indulgent Milk Bath which ends with the blissful Niyama Signature Massage.

IV Therapy Area

The Ultimate Glow Scrub is perfect for those craving for radiant skin as the treatment removes dead skin cells and impurities while offering scrub options like coffee, salt, and sugar.

Integrative Treatments 

According to Anya Resort Tagaytay, “The Integrative Treatments are founded on Niyama Wellness Center’s purpose of promoting a better quality of life and a collaboration with biological wellness company, European Wellness Retreat (EWR) ensuring optimization of one’s health and well-being, rooted in principles of European biological medicine and their specialized cellular health programs.”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The brand elaborates, “As building blocks to better health, EWR’s Biological Body Scan is a German made screening instrument assessing personal bio markers, such as automatic nervous system, diet, lifestyle, stress, and psycho emotional levels, adaptation,  determining an individual’s current health status, and revealing one’s biological  age versus common chronological age.”

Infrared Bioresonance Therapy

For detoxification, Infrared Bioresonance Therapy by EWR utilizes light to raise the body’s internal temperature without heating the air round, unlike a conventional sauna. With continuous sessions, benefits include better immune and respiratory health, as well as glowing skin.  

Colon Hydrotheraphy Treatment Area

An established treatment efficiently bringing pure oxygen to cells and tissues,  EWR’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) simulates a pressurized environment allowing our bodies to increase the amount of oxygen carried by blood; a series of sessions treats a number of conditions such as cardiovascular disease, chronic anaerobic infections, burns and slow healing injuries and improves overall  immune health.
