Designed with Chinese and Thai influences, revealing views of Jing'An Park, Anantara Spa is a haven of contemporary luxury and tranquillity that feels a world away from bustling Shanghai.  Escorted to one of the five charming treatment suites, individuals and couples can look forward to far reaching health and beauty benefits when they book the Rejuvenating Winter Wellness package.

The ritual begins with a 90 minute Swedish Massage with Herbal Oil. Since it was developed nearly 200 years ago, Swedish Massage has become the foundation of most western massage techniques. Incorporating percussive, tapping movements and five variations of

strokes, each part of the body is manipulated to stimulate the nervous system, improve circulation and flexibility, and enhance physical and mental wellbeing.

Drawing on ancient Chinese wellness wisdom, a 30 minute Moxibustion Treatments tailored to each client's needs, with a choice of selecting this specialist treatment for the shoulder and neck, lower back, or belly button.

Moxibustion is an ancient technique practiced in both traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine to aid the body's ability to heal itself.  This ancient Asian holistic therapy involves burning the herb mugwort to stimulate acupoints.  The radiant heat produced by the burning herbs penetrates deeply into the body, expelling cold and warming the meridians to stimulate the flow of blood circulation and vital energy, leading to improved general health and a wealth of specific benefits.  Moxibustion is used to treat cancer and chronic conditions such as arthritis, digestive disorders and ulcers, and since it increases circulation to the pelvis it is also used to encourage healthy menstruation and reduce menstrual cramps.  By invigorating healthy qi the immune system is strengthened, helping to prevent disease and increase longevity.

Traditionally there are two types of moxibustion.  In direct moxibustion, a small, cone-shaped amount of moxa is placed on top of an acupuncture point and burned.  For indirect moxibustion, a practitioner lights one end of a moxa stick and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area turns red. Acupuncture can also be incorporated, with a needle inserted into an acupoint and the tip wrapped in moxa and ignited, generating heat to the point and surrounding area. 

The Autumn Breeze ritual marries tradition and innovation by using a highly effective and safe machine lamp for the moxibustion treatment.  In this modern method the cover is placed on specific areas of the body that each client wishes to focus on.   The machine makes it easy for the therapist to adjust the temperature control and locate acupuncture points easily, while clients benefit from a comfortable experience without the fire and smoke that occurs with traditional methods.

Experience the relaxing and holistic benefits of the Autumn Breeze package for the special price of RMB 1, 480* per individual and RMB 2, 600* per couple, including a complimentary Anantara body care product worth RMB 380 to take home.

Asia Plantation Capital Patchouli Oil Achieves Premium Grade

SINGAPORE, July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Asia Plantation Capital has been developing sustainable, organic, Patchouli oil production on its plantations for the last year. Patchouli oil is extracted from the leaves of the perennial patchouli bush (which regrows) allowing the leaves to be harvested, sustainably, every 3 to 4 months.

The recent harvest and production of Patchouli oil, by Asia Plantation Capital, on its plantations in Sri Lanka has been certified as premium grade by independent analysts at the Industrial Technology Institute (ITI), Colombo.

When analysed via mass spectrometry by the ITI, samples of our oil tested positive for the major compounds of Patchouli oil.

Of these compounds, Patchouli alcohol is the main constituent which determines the quality of the oil. Consequently, the price of the Patchouli oil strongly depends on the ratio of Patchouli alcohol present in the oil.

Spectrometry results clearly indicate the high content of patchouli oil (0.53%) and patchouli alcohol (54.56%) in the oil sample which was taken after the distillation process. A patchouli alcohol content of over 30% is considered excellent quality.

These results show that the cultivation of patchouli for commercial oil extraction in Sri Lanka is a viable proposition.

This is a significant breakthrough for Asia Plantation Capital in Sri Lanka. We already cultivate Patchouli in Thailand and are now gearing up to follow our success in the production of high quality Oud oil with large scale production of Patchouli; for Sri Lanka, this can be particularly beneficial as it can create a new, high quality crop to boost exports and the rural economy.

Lalith Ganlath, Attorney for Asia Plantation Capital in Colombo, says, "It's a pleasure to see the hard work of the Sri Lankan, Asia Plantation Capital team paying off in Sri Lanka, on the back of plantation projects which the Company operates in other parts of South East Asia, and helping to contribute research and innovation to the country's agricultural export markets. I am very keen to help promote this project and encourage out-growers to cultivate the Patchouli, which can become part of their existing agroforestry incomes. It will also help maximise land use and returns for rural farmers, with Asia Plantation Capital agreeing to buy back the dry leaves which can be harvested every 3 months."

Asia Plantation Capital already has its own distribution offices, retail shops and warehouses in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the USA, supplying the industry. It is well set to become a major supplier of sustainable Patchouli oil, traceable to the source of production -- Patchouli oil is one of the most widely used oils in the international Fragrance industry and has a forecast industry value of over $46 billion in 2018 (Source: Industry Analyst's Inc.). Interestingly, Patchouli oil is one of the few natural essential oils which cannot be reproduced in any high quality, synthetically, for use in perfumes; making the demand for this excellent oil relatively assured.

Over the next year, the Company aims to establish over 5,000 acres of Patchouli fields using a combination of their own lands in South East Asia and out grower schemes in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Malaysia. All production for the plantations will be supplied with Certificate of Origin, Certificate of Analysis (CofA), Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for exports and Flow of Processing and Product Specification. In addition, the oil will be packaged under the Group's perfume brand, "Fragrance Du Bois" and branded, "Patchouli Du Bois" as a further stamp of guaranteed quality -- which has been a key to the success in globally marketing the Company's other essential oils such as Oud (agarwood) and also infected wood chips.
