Health & Wellness Immersion

Eat, Heal, Learn.

Join Four Seasons Resort Maui's On-site Wellness doctor Mark Emerson and an esteemed staff of physicians, nutrition experts, and health oriented culinary masters for a six day all-inclusive Ultimate Health & Wellness Immersion Event. 

Why an immersion? Just like learning a new language, if you immerse yourself into the country and culture, learning becomes more rapid, fun and enriching. The same applies to health and healing. The six day time frame allows for positive physiological changes to take place. The delicious, health promoting, nutrient rich meals served daily begin to break food cravings, aid in weight loss, reset your system and improve your health. 

Program Overview:

  • 6 nights luxurious accommodations at Four Seasons Resort Maui
  • Comprehensive health analysis with blood lab, nutritional evaluation, report of findings and health risk assessment in a private one on one setting.
  • 5 days of insightful health & wellness presentations covering nutrition, chronic disease, weight issues, food addictions, cravings, stress management and motivation, and practical application tips 
  • A post immersion follow up consultation with Dr. Emerson
  • Event workbook
  • 3 healthy cooking classes
  • A wellness oriented excursion
  • Daily healthy, fresh and delicious meals served 

What a life changing experience I had this last May at the Ultimate Health and Wellness Immersion. It was an amazing experience to be a part of and I do feel it was a gift of a lifetime.

The Ultimate Health and Wellness Immersion was one of those “events” that comes along a few times in your life that really changes your life for the better.
