Zulal Wellness Resort to Celebrate Ibn Sina with the Launching of 'TAIM Month'

This August, Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som, the world’s first wellness resort to blend the holistic wisdom of Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine (TAIM) with contemporary health practices, has provided details of its inaugural “TAIM Month” this August, which celebrates the birth month of the renowned physician and philosopher, Ibn Sina, the author of the influential 11th century Canon of Medicine.

The month-long programme of immersive well-being activities will blend an ancient Indigenous healing philosophy with modern therapies, supporting guests in their well-being journey and highlighting the enduring relevance of TAIM in contemporary wellness.

Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine form the foundation of Zulal Wellness Resort’s core modalities, which promote and sustain well-being through a focus on diet and nutrition, physical movement and recovery, adequate rest and sleep, optimal digestive function, and mindfulness practices.

Throughout the month of August, guests at Zulal Wellness Resort will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of interactive workshops, enlightening talks, personalised consultations, and exceptional culinary experiences – all rooted in the principles of TAIM and aimed at restoring body, mind and spirit to optimum health.

Taking place at the resort’s House of Wisdom – home to over 4,000 books and inspired by the historic Grand Library of Baghdad (7th – 13th century A.D.), guests can start their journey by sampling a wide selection of TAIM teas and herbal infusions, enjoying their therapeutic benefits, at the resort’s Tea House, and explore a range of herbal well-being remedies at the on-site Apothecary.

In this unique space of calm and contemplation, guests will be able to truly immerse themselves in the destination and the healing qualities of TAIM and be introduced to centuries-old health and wellness philosophies.

During August, specially crafted TAIM shots packed with healing ingredients served before and after meals will augment the nutrient-rich menu at the resort’s signature restaurants, Aizoon, Al Sidr and Acacia.

A special set menu inspired by TAIM ingredients will also be served in Aizoon throughout the month of August, with dishes ranging from chicken sausage with sautéed spinach, superfood vegetable casserole and spinach and chickpea stew with wild rice to turmeric quinoa salad with dates Greek yoghurt with apricot and flaxseed millefeuille.

Alongside nutrition, the Zulal Wellness Resort experience is also built upon fitness, spa, physiotherapy, holistic health and aesthetics. Celebrating the boundless potential of Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine as a unique and holistic path to wellness, the resort’s approach also encompasses mind-body therapies, traditional herbal medicine and physical therapies practised by resident specialists.

About Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine (TAIM)
Traditional Arabic and Islamic Medicine is a system of well-being originally practised in the Arab world and is based on the body of knowledge first formalised in the Canon of Medicine, written by physician-philosopher Ibn Sina, also known as Avicenna, in AD1025. Celebrating 1,000 years in 2025, the Canon of Medicine emphasises restoration and life balance through the pillars of physical movement and recovery, mindfulness, diet, optimal digestive function, and adequate rest.

In its contemporary interpretation, TAIM is distilled into a range of treatments and programmes aimed at supporting health in the 21st century, with an emphasis on restoring life balance through herbal medicines, spiritual therapies, and dietary and mind-body practices.
