These treatments are especially effective for discharging built-up tension from the nervous system and healing the effects of chronic stress and trauma. They also powerfully boost circulation and are often considered a natural face-lift. Alex is the author of the upcoming book Facial Reflexology for Emotional Wellbeing, due to be published by Inner Traditions in May 2023.

Trine Drivsholm

Glass artist Trine Drivsholm often uses recognisable forms such as vases, urns or other vessels as a starting point for her glass sculptures. It is, however, the aesthetic properties of the vessel that interests her most, as opposed to its functional use. She has a great sense for finding a perfectly balanced shape with definitive proportions and combining it with the colour and surface of objects. Matt, silky surfaces and delicate tones emphasise the soft, wavy organic lines, or tactile qualities are highlighted through rough surfaces, which appeal to the touch. Her sculptures have been acquired by a number of prestigious international institutions, including Glasmuseum Ebeltoft, Denmark National Arts & Design Collection, the Holland Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg and the Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin, USA. Trine’s previous exhibition at Soneva Fushi was wildly successful and sold out. Her latest endeavour in glass, the Lapis series, was developed during her residency at the Soneva Art & Glass studio. Trine will be our resident artist at Soneva Art and Glass, the Maldives’ only hot glass studio, from January 26, 2023 to February 16, 2023.
