Pamper yourself with Chuan Spa’s must-try treatment

Chuan Spa at Langham Hotel© Chuan Spa

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.

The staff are also incredibly welcoming – don’t miss the opportunity to try one of their house cocktails while seated at the bar before making your way into the main restaurant.

The small plates and nibbles are so good you might not make it to the main course. We tried the most gorgeous burrata with green peas and asparagus, perfectly cooked scallops, as well as Yellowtail Tiradito (the seafood offerings are excellent). The mains are equally tantalising – the Maccheroncini Lamb ragu Maccheroncini with mint and pecorino was melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and there is also an extensive selection of meat offerings for the carnivores among you.
