In traditional Chinese philosophy, ‘chi’ is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal
vitality. For people to maintain good health, it is believed that chi must flow freely within the body, and when blocked, health suffers and illness follows. Movement is therefore a key element in releasing these natural blockages. Exercise, stretching, massage, hydrotherapy and movement of the mind through relaxation and meditation combine to assist the body’s natural renewal and form the basis of the CHI spa philosophy.
Developed by a team of experts, CHI signature therapies are based on the Five Elements theory, in
which metal, water, wood, fire and earth are in balance to harmonize with the positive yang and negative yin energy within the body. For balance to occur, the harmony of yin and yang must be restored.
CHI also draws inspiration from the origin of the Shangri-La legend, a land of enchantment, peace and well-being. From this magical world, secrets are revived and recreated to bring you, for the first time, a spa concept fusing ancient healing traditions, philosophies and rituals from China, the Himalayas and Asia.
