Ultimate Health & Wellness Immersion

Four Seasons Resort Maui December 5-10, 2017


Eat, Heal, Learn.

Join Four Seasons Resort Maui's Wellness doctor Mark Emerson and an esteemed staff of physicians, nutrition experts, and health oriented culinary masters for a five 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 five 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:

  • 5 nights luxurious accommodations at Four Seasons Resort Maui
  • Nutritional evaluation and health risk assessment in a private one on one setting.
  • Insightful health & wellness presentations covering nutrition, chronic disease, weight issues, food addictions, cravings, stress management and motivation, and practical application tips
  • Healthy cooking classes - "the how to's to do at home"
  • Daily healthy, nutrient rich and delicious meals included (15 meals)
  • Learn how to prevent and reverse chronic disease

Dr. Emerson’s immersion retreat was a life-changer for me. In addition to spending quality time in the lap of luxury of the Four Seasons in Maui, I learned so many strategies and tips toward healthy living and living consciously with wellness as the ultimate objective. Getting insights into the medical science and learning the “HOW TOs” from the practical realities of shopping, cooking and exercise made a world of difference. My doctor was surprised at how good I looked after losing more than 15 pounds. But most importantly, all the metrics from my last blood work revealed that everything I learned from Dr. Emerson’s immersion program was working, especially as I am able to continue on this new lifestyle toward a healthier and happier me!
