Bring my glow back
We know foundations and blushes are cosmetic, so we step on treadmills and bend our bodies in the yoga room. Above all, I believe a proper massage can do something different and special. I am not talking about one pouring body oil to your body and sliding fingers on your back, but something deeply soothing and release all the tense.
A few months ago, I tried a promotion offer in Chuan Spa, a spa sitting in Langham Hotel in Portland Place, which offers massage combined with Chinese medicine philosophy. I'd never had a satisfactory massage experience in London, hence was rather taking myself as a human guinea pig.
The whole treatment started with a quiz of your life style, emotion and other seemingly random questions. Then from the answers, the therapist is able to find out which element I am lack of, out of five elements in Chinese Traditional Medicines: gold, wood, water, fire and earth. It seemed that I need a bit of "earth", hence more earthy ingredients were added to my treatment oil. It sounds like a cheesy game to play with but later my Chinese doctor confirmed that I need earth element to cure my weak digestion system. Well this is another story.
Before the massage, the therapist warmed my feet with hot towel which i liked very much and i was also taking a few round breathing exercises to get my whole body more prepared to the treatment.
The overall massage takes about 1.5 hour, including an express facial, which I don't think is their forte. An hour massage-only treatment might be a better deal in my opinion. What I like about Chuan's massage is really the therapist's techniques which combine deep tissue massage and shiatsu. Such style not only relaxed my massively tensed neck and shoulders by pressing the relevant points, but also soothed the whole body, from the head to toe. The relief came from inside of my body and the amazing thing was that I saw my face glowing after the treatment.
There are lots of Groupon Spa deals these days and I even tried a few. My conclusion is to save the money for the proper one. In the end, it is the treatment which will make the difference.
Tips: Use the complementary jacuzzi and sauna before the treatment, which relax the muscles and help benefit the massage the most. One also needs greater patience with the receptionists, although I hope they work in a better way now.
