Chuan Spa at Langham Place hotel has a new luxury for relaxation devotees and it goes by the name of Chuan Yu. Brand new and to be a signature of Chuan Spas worldwide, the Chuan Yu facial embraces both the east and the west; applying techniques inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine along with research by French beauty expert group Thalgo.

The 75 minute facial, named Chuan Yu, uses numerous jade stones to stimulate and massage facial acupoints and a movement similar to gua sha* to relax the whole body while improving facial tone, eliminating toxins and improving blood circulation.

Chuan Spa operations manager Amy Chan says: "We wanted to develop a facial that was luxurious and which felt amazing, but also we wanted it to be really good for our guest's health…so this is where the Chinese medicine techniques come in."

Created in consultation with Dr Gladys Leung, the hotel's Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor, jade is central to the treatment because of its qi (positive energy flow) and stabilising effects. The treatment also includes a nourishing face mask, a full facial hydrating ritual and ear auricular therapy** to help stimulate internal organs.

Chuan Yu is suitable for all skin types and is priced at HK$975 for 75 minutes. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 3552 3510 or emailing

Over coming months the Chuan Yu facial will be introduced to all Chuan Spas worldwide.
