Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatments
Chinese medical practitioners use cultural beliefs to interpret the states of well-being. Any disharmony of the equilibrium of Yin and Yang or disturbance of their flow can cause imbalance. The task of a Chinese doctor is to restore such imbalance. Some treatments include Acupuncture, Moxibustion and Ho Guan (Cupping). The aim is to supplement the deficiency of either Yin or Yang or to reduce the excess. The holistic approach of Chinese medicine is to treat the body as a whole and address any imbalance.

Traditional Chinese Medical Consultation and Treatments

Chuan Spa's Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) initial treatment session includes a consultation by a qualified TCM practitioner to interpret your state of well-being and relative treatment(s) will be prescribed.

Please refer to the Spa Concierge or Traditional Chinese Medical Consultant for all other specialized Traditional Chinese Medicine Treatments available at Chuan Spa at The Langham, Chicago.

Prescribed treatment(s) may include:

Acupuncture + Massage Therapy
Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced in China for thousands of years. Its focus is on improving the overall well-being of the patient, rather than treating specific symptoms. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health depends on the body's motivating energy - known as Qi - moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. This luxurious dual therapy of combined acupuncture and a customized massage is an excellent option for those looking to rebalance, restore and relax. Acupuncture treatment benefits are cumulative, therefore multiple visits are recommended.

Acupuncture + Massage Therapy Facial Renewal
Acupuncture Facial Renewal, or acupuncture facelift, is Chuan's natural age-old alternative to Botox, collagen and cosmetic surgery. Aiding the increase of facial tone, while helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, over time this luxurious and multi-faceted treatment benefits on a cosmetic level and also enhances the body's function through TCM points.

An ancient traditional Chinese technique to help strengthen the blood and stimulate the flow of 'Qi' to maintain general health. Moxibustion involves the burning of a small, spongy Chinese herb, known as moxa, to facilitate healing. The practitioner will light one end of a moxa stick and hold it close to an acupressure point for several minutes to bring about a pleasant heat sensation penetrating deep into the skin.

Ho Guan (Cupping)
Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which a heated cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup has therapeutic effect on the skin and superficial muscle layer.
Cupping is applied to certain acupressure points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain.

Treatment bookings should be made 24 hours in advance and are subject to availability.
