Background Note:
Chuan Spa

Offering signature services founded on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Chuan Spa emphasizes a holistic approach to a spa retreat. TCM practitioners believe the human body comprises two opposing yet mutually dependant halves - Yin and Yang.

In Chinese, Chuan means flowing water. Considered to be the source of life, water represents the re-birth and re-balancing of mind, body and soul in the Chinese culture. Each Chuan Spa is created to provide treatments and facilities to restore balance and energy while promoting well being, relaxation and fitness.

In line with TCM, Chuan’s treatments and expert consultants focus on harmonizing the body and soul, with a view to enriching personal happiness and fulfillment as a result. Each Chuan Spa offers a range of spa treatments and services in a modern contemporary setting with an ambiance that is always calming and peaceful.
