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 at Shangri-La features six serene and private spa suites in a tranquil corner of the hotel.
The spa offers an extensive spa menu consisting of award-winning CHI massages and treatments brought from other locations, as well as Kisetsu therapies inspired by Japan’s unique appreciation of the different seasons.
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 the CHI spa philosophy.
