Bid farewell to Summer and prepare for the coming Fall with CHI, The Spa signature treatments that will restore and revitalise body, mind and spirit – Remedial Massage, Wushu Body Wisdom Massage and CHI Balance Massage.
Each massage treatment addresses different needs, using its own unique massage techniques and philosophies.
The Remedial Massage deals with soft tissue problems like knotted and aching muscles due to tissue blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after an injury. It is an unusual form of massage with an objective to address your discomfort rather for relaxation. After the massage, hot stones are used to further relax muscles and improve blood circulation. Benefits include better sleep, increased vitality and mobility.
The Wushu Body Wisdom Massage is inspired by Wushu martial arts, in combination with unique massage techniques, to eliminate toxins within the muscle layers. The Wushu Body Wisdom Massage starts with guided stretching using the Wushu Stick, breathing exercises and movements to open your meridians, followed by a Wushu stick massage. You will not only feel your tiredness melt away, but your energy levels restored as your body regains its equilibrium.
CHI Balance Massage uses slow, gentle and repetitive strokes on your meridians, to induce a deep state of relaxation, while eliminating toxins and regulating the Yin and Yang in your body. A therapy highly recommended for people suffering from jetlag or insomnia.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, “chi” or “qi” is the universal life force that governs wellbeing and personal vitality.
