New Chuan Spa to Open at Langham London

It won't open for another month, but we're already excited about the upcoming Chuan Spa at the Langham, London. The Spa, Europe's first of the brand, will also be London’s first hotel spa to incorporate ancient principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine into its signature treatments, ambiance and décor.

“Chuan” in Chinese means flowing water and water is considered the foundation of life. The philosophy uses the principle of the balance of the five natural elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth and the body’s opposing yet mutually dependent halves, Ying and Yang.

Upon entering Chuan Spa, guests first see the Chinese garden-inspired ambience designed to gently nurture Jing (life force), Qi (vital energy) and Shen (mind and spirit). Over a glass of element tea, guests will meet with their therapist to discuss the treatment plan addressing the rebalancing of their five elements and personal Ying and Yang.

Guests will then relax in the vitality pool, salt-sauna and steam room before visiting the spa treatment area where fragrant candles and especially composed music will provide a calming and tranquil environment. Afterwards, guests can enjoy a glass of Chuan tea and fresh fruit platter in the contemplation area.

VIP’s and Couples will be able to enjoy the ultimate in privacy and romantic relaxation with joint treatments in "The Spirit Room," a VIP couples suite, for half or full day packages. Five other treatment rooms are available.

In addition to its signature treatments, Chuan Spa will offer the services of a fully qualified TCM Practitioner for private consultations and specialist TCM therapies including acupuncture, Ho Guan (cupping), moxibustion and other techniques.
