Chuan Spa's Indulgent Oasis For Mind, Body And Soul At The Langham, Shenzhen

The Langham, Shenzhen is unveiling a ‘fountain of youth’ at the Chuan Spa, enveloping guests with the spirit of Chinese culture in a tranquil oasis of pampering and well-being therapies.


Named after the Chinese character chuan meaning a serene course of water, the enchanting haven is designed to create an ambience of tranquillity for both contemplation and inspiration.


In Chinese culture, flowing water is considered the source of life and balance; a key to keeping mind, body and soul in check. Chuan Spa facilities are modelled to reflect this harmony by using the principles of Wu Xing.


Embracing a natural aesthetic with interiors of soft and calming hues, it transports guests into a haven from the outside world to revitalise mind, body and soul with exclusive treatment facilities including Herbal Steam rooms, Himalayan Saunas, outdoor Jacuzzi and Snail Showers.


Chuan Spa’s bespoke treatments from facials and herbal salt scrubs to mud wraps, hand or foot therapies and body massages embody The Langham's tradition of incorporating gracious traditions and holistic wellness, adopting the centuries-old principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).


Expert consultants first assess the mood, lifestyle and individual needs of guests before recommending personalised TCM-inspired treatment based on the principles of Wu Xing – the five essential elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.


Before treatment, guests also embark on a natural water journey, the Chuan Tri-bathing Ritual, to exploit reaction to

hot and cold stimuli for deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and wellbeing. The ritual begins with herbal steam allowing heat to loosen and soothe tightened congested muscles. As an interlude, a snail shower awakens the spirit, and a Himalayan sauna rounds-off the ritual to prepare for spa treatment.

This regime of alternate hot and cold produces rotating sedative and invigorating responses in the body to stimulate and awaken senses, balancing energies, stimulating the immune system, enhancing blood circulation, promoting detoxification, and restoring the body to a state of harmony.


Chuan Signature Escape packages include Chuan Body Elements starting with a signature Chuan Harmony massage, followed by skin nourishing with the hydrating benefits of Thalgo Oceanic aromatic bliss facial care.


The 2 hours, 30 minutesChuan Tao Detox ritual features a luxurious full body exfoliation to stimulate blood and lymph circulation before being enveloped in a warm marine algae wrap infused with aromatherapy oils, intensifying the detox process. Then the body is rejuvenated by easing tension in the back, neck and shoulders using an acupressure massage to release energy blocks. To finish, a Thalgo Oceanic Enchantment facial infuses an

intensive oxygen booster to help restore dehydrated skin leaving it deeply nourished.


Chuan Ritual features a Chuan Signature Massage, Thalgo Facial and either Chuan Herbal Salt Scrub, Chuan Mini Muddy Elements or Chuan Mini Feet Retreat.


Chuan Jet Lag Revivalcombats jet-lag, fatigue and mental exhaustion by balancing senses with a Herbal Salt Scrub to stimulate and smooth the skin, followed by therapeutic Chuan Harmony Massage to slowly take away any feeling of tiredness, stress, muscle aches and tension. To finish, an invigorating foot massage brings you back to earth feeling totally rejuvenated and renewed.


The 2 hours, 30 minutes Chuan Awakenings, awakens senses with head to toe pampering including a warm aromatic hair mask, infused with jasmine, clary sage and sandalwood. Signature Chuan Balancing Massage follows, before hands and feet are finally revitalised with nourishing oils and lotions producing a renewed sense of wellbeing.

Serenity Shen begins with a signature Stone Therapy Massage, followed by ultimate facial with blended essential oils and a revitalising cool marine algae mask. The serenity is completed with refreshing foot treatment, leading to a dreamy state of relaxation, nourishing the skin, soothing the

soul and calming the mind.

The luxurious four-hour Chuan Eternity is the ultimate whole body experience, starting with Herbal Salt Scrub to soften the skin and restore natural glow before tension is massaged away. Pampering continues with a scalp massage and deeply hydrating aromatic hair mask that restores shine and luster. A calm collagen facial replenishes and revitalises complexion before a healing hands or feet retreat, including nail and cuticle work.
