Gharieni CEO Sammy Gharieni explains how augmented massage adds a new dimension

How does Motion Waves technology work?
Infrared sensors analyse the position and speed of the therapist’s movements in real time and transform it into sounds designed for deep relaxation. Wellness treatments become interactive live performances.

Can you explain the concept of ‘augmented massage’?
Augmented massage is a completely new motion-to-sound medium, which is absolutely new and untouched in the world of spa and wellness. It is an unfiltered expression of human energy.

Augmented experiences, where hidden sensors analyse movements and convert them into sounds, already exist in luxury retail spaces. With augmented massage we transfer this interactive experience into the spa and wellness industry. The therapist is the artist, the client the audience, the treatment a symphony.

How did the partnership with Motion Waves come about?
I met Jean-Marie at the Hotel&Spa in Paris, where he told me about Motion Waves. I was fascinated by the technology. We had the idea to transfer this emotional experience into the spa and wellness industry. The collaboration offers the possibility to bring this amazing technology into the world of spa and wellness, and to integrate it into our exclusive spa table Gharieni MO1.

Which tables will Motion Waves be available on? How much will it cost?
The Gharieni MO1 augmented massage edition is the first spa bed with a built-in Motion Waves system, and will enter the market in early 2018. It works as a stand-alone application, which means that no additional installation in the room is needed. The bed features computer-controlled infrared sensors installed into a high-quality sensor arm and a nine-speaker Bose sound system. Prices are TBD.

How do you envision spas and therapists using this technology?
The Gharieni MO1 augmented massage edition has not been released yet, but has already had requests. The technology is very easy to use and is perfect for spas that are open to modern technology to create new experiences. We want to create joyfulness for both clients and therapists.

The Gharieni MO1 augmented massage edition will debut in 2018
The bed has computer-controlled infrared sensors and a Bose sound system
