According to Chinese zodiac philosophy, whether you're a rat or a monkey, you know you have endearingly admirable attributes along with some areas that could do with a little work. Chuan Spa has unveiled 12 new treatments, inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine, which are designed to counter your less-favourable qualities while exemplifying the positive.

Each treatment is tailored specifically to suit your zodiac sign says Chuan Spa manager Sheryl Wan: "Our Traditional Chinese Medicine specialist looked at the qi, wu xing (five elements) and yin and yang energies carried by each sign. The result is 12 fun and luxurious specialised treatments."

Price at HK$1,288 per person, each treatment lasts 90-minutes. This oriental indulgence is available until 2 February 2011 and reservations are essential. Call +852 3552 3510 or email
