London’s Latest: Revolutionary New Facial at The Langham's Chuan Spa

Chuan Yu facial at The Langham London's Chuan SpaWe’ve been smitten with The Langham London’s Chuan Spa ever since we first set foot inside-- before its official opening date. (Check out our review here.) The latest luxury available for spa devotees in London? The glam spa has launched an innovative facial that’s “the perfect preparation for the party season.” The Chuan Yu facial applies Traditional Chinese Medicine by using jade stones-- coveted by Chinese royalty and famed for their positive energy flow-- to stimulate and massage facial acupoints with the Ancient Gua Sha technique. The benefits include detoxification for eliminating toxins, tonification for the cleansing of channels for cells nourishment, and whitening for improving blood circulation. The facial starts off with a short breathing ritual to aid relaxation, and also features a nourishing face mask, a full facial hydrating ritual, and ear auricular therapy (dating back to 500 BC) to help stimulate internal organs. Priced at £100 for 75 minutes. It's possible to book your spa appointment via the Chuan Spa's website.
