This philosophy together with the ancient Thai healing methods based on the four body elements of earth, water, air and fire, forms the basis of the concept at LUXSA Spa. LUXSA Spa offers a sanctuary for the senses, as well as a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Earth, water, air, and fire – are regarded as the foundation of the whole body in Thai medicine and healing. The constant interaction of the four elements, according to Thai herbalism, gives rise to the processes of the human body and is the impetus behind physical life. It is of vital importance, therefore, to keep the four elements balanced throughout life. During the normal course of one’s life, the elements go in and out of balance in a continuously changing state of health or disease. How are the elements manifesting in your body?
Substances that are solid can be said to have the qualities of the earth element. Solid qualities of the body that are of the earth element include skin, muscle, tendon, bone, viscera, fat, and other solid organs. Imbalance of the earth element would manifest as symptoms of the organs associated with the Earth element. Some examples would be: skin disease, bone disease, tumors, and other “solid” disorders.
Substances that are liquid are of the water element. Liquid qualities of the body that are of the water element include blood, eyes, phlegm, saliva, lymph, urine, semen, and other liquids of the body. Imbalances of the water element would manifest as symptoms of the organs associated with the water element such as blood disease, eye disorders, renal disease, bladder or urinary tract infection or stones, and any diseases manifesting in abnormal urine or other liquid discharge.
Substances that have movement are of the air element. Moving qualities of the body include respiration, digestion, excretion, motion of the limbs and joints, sexuality, aging. Imbalance of the air element would manifest as symptoms of the organs associated with the air element such as pneumonia, cough, mucous congestion, tuberculosis, bronchitis, other respiratory infections, fainting, dizziness, and arthritis. The air element is considered to be the most important element in promoting mobility, strength, longevity, and vigor.
Substances that have heat are of the fire element. Warm/hot qualities of the body include body temperature, circulatory system, and metabolism. Imbalance of the fire element primarily manifests as diseases of the fire element organs, the heart and circulatory system.
