Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea Kicks Off Spa Wellness Series

with Jacob Liberman, Vision Therapy Pioneer

Sixteen Four-Day Weekends From September 2 through December 19, 2010

Feature Different Wellness Experts Each Week

 

Have you noticed that most people in the United States are wearing prescription glasses by the time they are in their 20s?   It is estimated that 67 percent of adults wear glasses and another 16 percent wear contact lenses. In its continued commitment to provide innovative offerings, The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Maui has invited Dr. 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, 2010. 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.        

 

“We created the Fall Wellness Series because our guests are eager to explore alternative therapies to make impactful lifestyle choices,” says Pat Makozak, director of The Spa and senior spa director for the Americas, Four Seasons Resorts. She adds that the weekends will be of interest to both health-conscious guests from around the world as well as to local Hawaii residents. This program is only available at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.       

 

Liberman, who lectures worldwide, is based on Maui, Hawaii. He is the author of three books, Take Off Your Glasses and See; Light: Medicine of the Future; and Wisdom from an Empty Mind. Liberman is a fellow Emeritus of The American Academy of Optometry, The College of Optometrists in Vision Development, The College of Syntonic Optometry and The International Academy of Color Sciences. He is the recipient of the H.R. Spitler Award for his work in phototherapy.  

 

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.
