The Spas at Mandarin Oriental have collaborated with Hong Kong-based Joint Dynamics and USA-based Hyperice to create a ground-breaking new treatment and exercise regime to help guests improve their capacity for quality movement. Our in house team of wellness experts developed this treatment with training and support from the elite trainers at Joint Dynamics, a cutting edge physiotherapy centre in Hong Kong specialising in scientific approaches to both treatments and physiotherapy. Joint Dynamics experts have provided advanced training to both our spa therapists and fitness instructors to improve mobility and address common postural issues caused by our modern technology-driven lifestyle. Hyperice is also a part of this program using the Hypervolt therapeutic massage tools in both the Intelligent Movement Treatment and Fitness Programs to assist with muscle manipulation, release, and preparation. These revolutionary massage tools will also be available for retail in each of our spas.
 
The Intelligent Movement Treatment launches globally on Global Wellness Day on 11th June 2022 to support guests whose posture and mobility is compromised by our modern lifestyle, which typically includes head-forward posture, internally rotated shoulders, anterior pelvic tilt, tight hamstrings, etc.  Designed to help our guests move more and better, this ground breaking treatment includes: trigger point release work, deep muscle manipulation, stretching and elongation of the muscles, all designed to soften, release tension and aid in increased mobility in the body.  At the end of this treatment program, guests are presented with homecare tip cards with mobility exercises for the upper body and lower body so that they can continue their mobility journey at home.
