CHUAN SPA ANNOUNCES WORLDWIDE LAUNCH OF FIRST HEAVENLY JING LUO FOOT TREATMENT
19 April 2013
Langham Hospitality Group's wellness brand, Chuan Spa, will be introducing its first "Heavenly Jing Luo" foot treatment globally from 1 May 2013. Specially designed by Dr Gladys Leung, Chuan Spa consultant and a registered traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioner, the new treatment will help guests restore energy and relieve muscle tension by stimulating circulation along the meridian channels (jing luo經絡) and specific acupressure points.
"The human body has 14 meridian channels that supply qi (氣energy) to the organs and systems," said Dr Leung. "When I created the "Heavenly Jing Luo" foot treatment, I specifically sourced for an effective way to promote qi, strengthen the immune system and maintain a healthy equilibrium between the mind and body."
Prior to the treatment, the therapist will place a herbal stone thermal bag on the lower back to warm the body and facilitate the healing process. The guests will then be wrapped with a TCM herb mask that consists of ai ye (艾葉a herbal medicine for conditioning the liver, spleen and kidney channels) and mineral salt. The mask will not only regulate the liver and kidney channels, but will also relieve rigidity of the muscles, stimulates the circulation of qi and blood along the meridians channels as well as nourishes the skin and detoxify the body.
"The feet are a road map and complete reflection to the body, it is very important to take care of them," said Barry White, group director of spa of Langham Hospitality Group. "We are very focused in developing our treatments by applying TCM principles, so we are not just reducing muscle tension or spasm on the feet but going more deeply to re-energise the body as a whole."
The "Heavenly Jing Luo" foot treatment will be available in Chuan Spa at the following hotels:
