Balance your chi

Governing well-being and vitality, chi or qi is the universal life force. This traditional Chinese medicine principle is the basis for relaxing therapies at Chi, The Spa, located in the Krungthep Wing of Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok.

Time-honoured treatments are employed to promote a good flow of the vital energy, whose blockage or stagnation can lead to health issues.

Until the end of September, special offers under the spa's Body & Mind Pampering campaign provide holistic therapy.

From Wednesday to Friday, 11am to 4pm, a 60 or 90 minute body massage (950-1,150 baht) can help reduce muscle tension and improve circulation.

After a busy week, spa-goers can unwind in a two-hour session (2,290 baht) that begins with a 30-minute body scrub, followed by a 60-minute body massage and a 30-minute facial. Including complimentary access to the pool, this special package is available on Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 4pm.

With many branches around the world, the chain is known for its alluring interior design inspired by Tibetan temples and the mythical land of Shangri-La. A visit to the Bangkok outlet allows one to escape from hectic urban life, and recharge in its enchanting treatment room.
