As modern health care has evolved, we have increasingly recognized the relevance of different forms of medicine and healing that are steeped in culture and history. The World Health Organization (WHO) has acknowledged the importance of traditional healing, which involves working with a person to help them heal, not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. Also known as holistic healing, it involves an integrative approach that seeks to balance the body, mind, and spirit with the environment. Traditional healing promotes holistic wellness.
Founded by the ardent visionary Dr. Zara Celik, the Amara Wellness Centre is one such culmination of experience, understanding, education, culture, and tradition. The centre is primarily focused on the values of prevention, treatment, and true wellness. Whether looking for chiropractic treatment, injury and illness prevention, general health and well-being advice, a soothing massage, rejuvenating and revitalizing your body, or enjoying a hot steam "Hammam," Amara is the perfect place for you.
Dr. Zara Celik, Founder and Managing Director of Amara Wellness Centre, spoke exclusively to CIO Bulletin on how she and her team of qualified therapists and practitioners provide their clients with comprehensive wellness solutions.

The ritual is done in a Hammam that has a heated marble bed on which the client lies and includes steam and water therapy to activate the meridian channel from head to toe with specific pouring techniques. Magnesium and mineral-rich natural clay mask are applied to the body with steam therapy to allow the minerals to absorb, relax, and detox the body. Water poured from copper vessels onto body for grounding and cleansing between each step during the ritual. Kessa glove is used to exfoliate and remove dead skin to allow the skin pores to detox effectively through skin pores. Hair washed and conditioned and combed, scalp massaged. Warm oil is applied, and the whole body is massaged with the most luxurious silky soap bubbles to eliminate muscle tension.
