Langham Debuts Luxury Spa in U.S.

Langham Hotels is debuting its luxury brand Chaun Body + Soul in U.S. on 1 June. Opening in Langham Hotel, Boston, Massachusetts, the Chuan Body + Soul will boast treatments based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and focused on creating a relaxing spa atmosphere as well as balancing the elements, whose harmony is essential for physical and emotional well-being.

Chuan Body + Soul is the sibling of Chuan Spa, the luxury spa brand under Langham Hotels International. Chuan Spas are also open in Hong Kong, Melbourne and Koh Lanta, Thailand. "Chuan" in Chinese means flowing water and water is the foundation of life. Chuan is among the very first hotel spas to incorporate principles of TCM into its signature treatments, ambience, and décor. Chuan aims to provide the most comprehensive wellness experience with an array of pampering treatments to restore your mind, body, and soul.

Chuan Body + Soul at The Langham, Boston encompasses two fitness floors with modern spa treatment rooms, Rejuvenation Bar, elegant locker rooms, indoor lap pool, hot tub, saunas, and TechnoGym equipment with LCD televisions and iPod technology. Staying true to its Oriental philosophy, it is designed with a Chinese architectural style.

The Chuan journey begins with a specialist taking guests through a five-element (water, fire, wood, metal, and earth) questionnaire to determine which life element is out of balance. Centuries ago, TCM practitioners identified these five elements and determined their impact on physical and emotional well-being. Essential oils, incense and teas are tailored to bring the element back to harmony. After the treatments, guests can also take advantage of all health club amenities.

Brett Butcher, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Langham Hotels International said, "The introduction of the first Chuan Body + Soul, with its treatments rooted firmly in Traditional Chinese Medicine, will take the luxury spa and fitness experience to new levels on the East Coast. In recent years, TCM has begun to gain broader acceptance in the West, as the health benefits have become proven time and again. This makes our first Chuan Spa in the United States incredibly timely as it combines therapeutic TCM benefits and pampering in one serene space. Americans will no longer have to travel to Asia for an award-winning spa journey, with one now at their doorstep."
