While staying at the Shangri-La hotel in Tokyo, I had a chance to try out there Chi spa. I wanted to take note of this experience because I feel that it was something truly special. From the moment you walk in the door, you step into another dimension of relaxation.
As with most spas, firstly you’ll meet with the staff and discuss treatment options. For my case, I chose the signature Chi Balance massage. At this time, I got a chance to observe the beautiful design of the spa. Even the treatment rooms look great. What a fantastic atmosphere. To start off the relaxation process, you get to choose between A few different warm-up processes. I went with the steam room which was a great way to relax and open my pores.
This massage was unlike any other I’ve had before. The method used was a very long stroke. I came in and out of the moment several times because I was in another world of bliss. I generally don’t like massages too hard, that’s why this one was so amazing. The masseuse ran her fingers down the entire length of my body. Super relaxed.
The way the staff treats the guests was above and beyond what I’ve experienced in the past. They really do their best to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. A quick 90 minutes later and the treatment was winding down. It was time to drink hot tea and have some ginger snacks and be on my way. This was something truly special. I really felt compelled to write about this spa because I had such a nice treatment and I love to focus on experiences that I truly enjoy. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful and I would highly recommend you to give the Chi Spa at the Shangri-La hotel a try the next time you’re in Tokyo, Japan!
