James Zhang, a senior therapist at the Beijing branch, will lead guests through the 90-minute traditional Chinese Meridian massage on a therapeutic and stress-relieving wellness journey carefully tailored to the needs of each guest. Based on the ancient Chinese belief in balancing the yin and yang energy forces, this uplifting body treatment uses no oils or lotions. Instead, the therapist uses shou fa (hand and arm) massage techniques, such as kneading, rolling and stretching, to stimulate the body’s key pressure points combined with a head massage to release stagnant qi and leave guests feeling re-energised.
Zhang leads the award-winning team in Beijing, where guests can discover reinvigoration for the body and mind with bespoke spa and beauty therapies, such as Baguanfa Cupping and Gua Sha Scraping, which draw on timeless Chinese healing philosophies. He specialises in Chinese body massage and foot reflexology treatments.
Guests at the Peninsula Spa at The Peninsula Beijing can relax and unwind in 12 beautifully designed suites, including two private couples’ suites. Classic wooden lattices and graceful tones of marble and textured granite enhance the serene ambience, and thermal bathing facilities provide additional relaxation benefits. A soothing cup of Chinese tea sipped in the refined Oriental Tea Lounge completes each unique spa journey.
In Bangkok, the traditional Chinese Massage is priced at Bt4,800-plus per person for 90 minutes and foot reflexology is also provided at Bt3,800-plus per person for 60 minutes.
