The ambience at Chuan Spa at The Langham, Xintiandi, Shanghai evokes tranquility for meditation and inspiration. "Chuan" translates to a serene course of water, and the therapies and facilities reflect this meaning. In Chinese culture, water is viewed as the source of life and balance, and therefore is vital. Incorporating the principles of Feng Shui, treatments work to restore harmony to the body.
Before your treatment, awaken your senses with a Chuan Tri-bathing Ritual. Start off in the steam room or sauna to allow the heat to loosen muscles, then step into a cool shower to stimulate the body. Conclude the ritual in the Jacuzzi as final preparation for your spa session.
The spa menu offers an extensive list of services that are based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Therapies include the Chuan Harmony Massage, Serenity Shen and Thalgo Facials, among many others.
