SHANGHAI, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Each changing season sheds the old and ushers in new beginnings, and Anantara Spa’s special Autumn Breeze package at The PuLi Hotel and Spa offers a unique combination of revered eastern and western therapies, available throughout September, October and November 2014.
Designed with Chinese and Thai influences, revealing views of Jing’An Park, Anantara Spa is a haven of contemporary luxury and tranquillity that feels a world away from bustling Shanghai. Escorted to one of the five charming treatment suites, individuals and couples can look forward to far reaching health and beauty benefits when they book the Rejuvenating Winter Wellness package.
The ritual begins with a 90 minute Swedish Massage with Herbal Oil. Since it was developed nearly 200 years ago, Swedish Massage has become the foundation of most western massage techniques. Incorporating percussive, tapping movements and five variations of
strokes, each part of the body is manipulated to stimulate the nervous system, improve circulation and flexibility, and enhance physical and mental wellbeing.
Drawing on ancient Chinese wellness wisdom, a 30 minute Moxibustion Treatments tailored to each client’s needs, with a choice of selecting this specialist treatment for the shoulder and neck, lower back, or belly button.
Moxibustion is an ancient technique practiced in both traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine to aid the body’s ability to heal itself. This ancient Asian holistic therapy involves burning the herb mugwort to stimulate acupoints. The radiant heat produced by the burning herbs penetrates deeply into the body, expelling cold and warming the meridians to stimulate the flow of blood circulation and vital energy, leading to improved general health and a wealth of specific benefits. Moxibustion is used to treat cancer and chronic conditions such as arthritis, digestive disorders and ulcers, and since it increases circulation to the pelvis it is also used to encourage healthy menstruation and reduce menstrual cramps. By invigorating healthy qi the immune system is strengthened, helping to prevent disease and increase longevity.
Traditionally there are two types of moxibustion. In direct moxibustion, a small, cone-shaped amount of moxa is placed on top of an acupuncture point and burned. For indirect moxibustion, a practitioner lights one end of a moxa stick and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area turns red. Acupuncture can also be incorporated, with a needle inserted into an acupoint and the tip wrapped in moxa and ignited, generating heat to the point and surrounding area.
The Autumn Breeze ritual marries tradition and innovation by using a highly effective and safe machine lamp for the moxibustion treatment. In this modern method the cover is placed on specific areas of the body that each client wishes to focus on. The machine makes it easy for the therapist to adjust the temperature control and locate acupuncture points easily, while clients benefit from a comfortable experience without the fire and smoke that occurs with traditional methods.
Experience the relaxing and holistic benefits of the Autumn Breeze package for the special price of RMB 1, 480* per individual and RMB 2, 600* per couple, including a complimentary Anantara body care product worth RMB 380 to take home.
