 A touch of Asia at Auriga spa

Auriga presents a blend of specialised Asian massage techniques with the Senja Sunyi treatment

   Singapore, 21 December 2012 – Explore the mysteries of the orient at Auriga spa with the luxurious Senja Sunyi treatment. Drawing from the time tested practices of traditional Asian treatments and therapies; the Auriga spa’s Senja Sunyi treatment features a special blend of the Chinese Javanese massage techniques.

 Senja meaning “dusk” and Sunyi meaning “silent” in Bahasa Indonesia, this soothing treatment uses the smooth “long strokes” of traditional Javanese massage techniques to relax the mind and body.  Complementing the Javanese techniques are Chinese “Tui Na” techniques which focus on specific pressure points that release all the built up tension in the muscles. The “Tui Na” helps to channel energy through the body’s meridians.  Adding to the magic of the experience, a special warm Moonstone is used to melt away all the tension in the muscles, leaving the body feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

 The Senja Sunyi treatment is priced at S$230++ per person for 90 minutes.

 As all good things are meant to be shared, the Senja Sunyi treatment at Auriga spa will also be available as a couple’s treatment package. The Senja Sunyi Couple’s Treatment includes a refreshing Porcelain Moon Scrub with Peony and Plum Blossoms, which are symbols of wealth and happiness to the Peranakan culture and also nourishing for the skin, followed by a 90 minute Senja Sunyi massage.

 The treatment continues with a lavish Mandi Safar Bath in Attar perfumed water with rose and sandalwood oil, and buttermilk before ending with a Peranakan style afternoon tea at The Knolls restaurant, overlooking Capella Singapore’s cascading pools and the magnificent South China Sea.

 The Senja Sunyi Couples Treatment is priced at S$688++ per couple and is available from 1 February 2013.
