The Overview





Traditional Chinese Medicine is a wellness system that not only includes the staples acupuncture and tai chi, but also herbs and medicinal tonics, reflexology and a range of massage styles— good news for spa-goers seeking relaxation by way of their Chinese element. At Chuan Spa at The Langham, Xintiandi, Shanghai, you’ll answer a series of questions to divine whether you’re more earth, metal, fire, wood or water. But unlike your birth sign, your element might vary by your mood or the day. “During the change in the seasons,” says the spa’s Daphne Li, “people tend to be metal because they need to hydrate and strengthen their immune system”—in which case you’d be recommended an oil made of orange, which is said to improve one’s mood; sweet almond, olives, sunflower and jojoba, for hydration; and essential oils of lime and spearmint, to aid breathing.
