Practitioner Thomas Andersen to Visit Velaa Private Island this October

Specialising in structural integration in the body, practitioner Thomas Andersen will be visiting Velaa this October offering specialist consultations and treatments for guests.

After being led into the healing world following an accident 24 years ago that left him in a Coma due to a brain Hemorrhage. Andersen since pursued the practice of holistic healing modalities where among many he found Rolfing (Structural integration). From 10 – 30 October, Andersen will be available for private sessions with guests offering Advanced Rolfing, Integrative Scar rejuvenation work and Bone Realignment work treatments.


Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and services that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”.

Velaa Private Island is the realization of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body.

The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses, and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 47 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing, even more, privacy and exclusivity.
