Chuan Spa at The Langham, Xintiandi, Shanghai offers six signature massages, including acupressure and traditional Chinese medicine treatments. If you’re pressed for time, the 30-minute back, neck and shoulder massage is a great way to relieve tension headaches and uses acupressure to dig deep into sore muscles. The Chuan Harmony massage, available for 60 or 90 minutes, uses both acupressure techniques and essential oils to soothe muscles and leave your skin baby soft. The 90-minute Chuan Stone therapy is aimed at balancing your body’s yin and yang through the use of hot and cold stones. Hot stones increase circulation in your body and, as the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa alleges, they help get rid of waste. Cold stones cool you down and get your brain up and running. Along with the stones, the therapist will give you a great massage with long, deep strokes.
