CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well-being.
CHI, The Spa, offers 11 luxurious private spa suites, complete with elegant spa baths and herbal steam facilities. The luxury of personal space and a carefully considered spa ambience creates a refuge with a sense of timelessness.
The spa treatments draw on the collective roots of traditional Asian therapies from the cultures that shared travels along the old Silk Road.
In traditional Chinese philosophy, ch’i or "Qi" is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that ch’i must flow freely within the body and, when blocked, "dis-ease" and illness follow.
Movement is therefore a key element in releasing blockages. Body massage, exercise, stretching, hydrotherapy, and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body's natural renewal and form the basis of CHI spa philosophy.
