There are two acupressure treatments available at JW Marriott Shanghai at Tomorrow Square’s Mandara Spa — one comes from Thailand and the other from China. The traditional Thai massage, called Nuad Borarn in Thai, is a 2,500-year-old treatment that uses the therapist’s fingers, thumbs, elbows, arms and feet to apply acupressure and gentle stretching. The traditional Chinese massage, also thousands of years old, uses tapping, stretching and deep pressure and strokes to stimulate the flow of energy (qi) throughout your body and reach acupressure points. Afterward, tradition says your yin and yang should be in better balance.
