In March only we are offering a special edition of this Vair For Women signature programme


Tarant is the desired revolution. The sublime change. The ecstasy of purification. It’s a Vair programme specifically for women, inspired by the fascinating phenomenon of Tarantism. This is a traditional community ritual full of liberating gestures and cathartic wisdom which Vair offers in a modern and joyful interpretation. Tarant combines the power of popular therapeutic art with innovative Spa techniques. It’s a rediscovery of ourselves and our own happiness blending colours, perfumes, gestures, sounds, dances and meetings. It’s charming and engaging.

The Tarant  programme is inspired by the sacred and profane tradition of Tarantism, typical of Southern Italy, in particular Salento. It centres around the popular belief that a spider’s bite  has the power to create some somatic disorders, whose only remedy is a "community therapy”, based on gestures, movements, colours, scents and sounds.

The ritualistic preparation of the therapeutic setting was and is an integral part of the therapy. The ritual itself includes exquisitely creative methods like music, tones and specific dances, blended together with an ensemble energy to heal the Tarantata.

Intense and rhythmic music creates a pristine space where a catatonia with cathartic meanings happens. The process expels the toxic substance by recognizing the "colour" of the poison. Leaving metaphors aside, this style of regeneration and purification leads to the joyous rebirth  of a true and full life, according to our deepest desires.

Through music and dance the natural expression of personality, hitherto trapped in the image imposed from the outside world, is powerfully released.

Emotions are acted out and addressed with Vair therapist-artists in the Spa programme treatments so that Tarant becomes a form of nonverbal communication that cares and regenerates, in a process of both individual and communal rebirthing.

"Poison" that has been injected by the world in different forms is cleansed during Avemmarì, the meeting with Stefano Battaglia - called Vair’s Shaman because of the power of his treatments. He guides you to reclaim the wonderful possibility of your hidden potential.

Tarant is the journey, exciting and joyful, of the female revival towards profound self-discovery.
