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 is your personal
sanctuary where holistic treatments are based on time-honoured methods shared
by many Asian cultures.
CHI, The Spa, made its North American debut at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, in 2009. CHI offers a "spa within a spa" environment. Each suite comes with its own fireplace, private bath, shower, relaxation lounge, changing and vanity areas. Guests receive complimentary valet parking with any CHI Journey booked.
Chinese philosophy, “chi” or “qi” is the universal life force that governs
well-being and personal vitality. For people to maintain good health, it is
believed that “chi” must flow freely within the body.
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, The Spa's philosophy.
