Pamper yourself with Chuan Spa’s new must-try treatment
The Langham’s ultra luxurious Chuan Spa has just launched a new Ashmira Botanica Pure Alchemy treatment - and trust us, you need to try it. Based on Chinese medicine, the facial is a multi-sensory experience incorporating lymphatic drainage and acupressure massage techniques, plus sound healing. From the moment we crossed the threshold of the Portland Place venue, it was pure bliss.
Clambering onto the massage table, we were presented with a mug of ceremonial cacao, scientifically proven to release happy chemicals. The treatment, created by Ashmira Botanica founder Tracey Smith, helped us slip into deep relaxation mode, kicking things off with an upper back massage and exfoliation. Up next came a relaxing facial using Pure Alchemy products. Masks, creams and elixirs were expertly applied, with facial cups to remove toxins and rose quartz rollers all helping to boost the skin’s radiance.
Inspired by the ancient philosophy of the Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water), the treatments can be personalised based on biorhythm (year of birth), any emotional or physical issues you may be experiencing, as well as the time of year. We were primed and prepped for spring with a soothing massage aimed at clearing the gallbladder and liver energies, which promised to balance emotions and unblock imbalances within the body. The process was fascinating; we were told we might be harbouring feelings of rage and frustration, which can also manifest on the skin – no doubt the source of a pesky and highly atypical breakout that wouldn’t clear. Spookily, our spirits have been lifted ever since and even our skin has improved.
