Spa Menu
CHI, The Spa’s menu includes Chinese and ayurvedic treatments. In traditional Chinese philosophy, chi, or qi, is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. For good health to be maintained, it is believed that chi must flow freely within the body. On the other hand, when chi is blocked, disease and illness follow.

Movement is a key element in releasing blockages within the body. Body massage, exercise, stretching and moving the mind through relaxation and meditation practices form the basis of our spa philosophy and are combined to assist the body’s natural renewal.

CHI, The Spa’s menu also incorporates the renowned yogic practice of pranayama into every treatment. Each of our treatments are started with our signature breathing and meditation exercises to provide guests a complete spa journey.

Products
The products used in their treatments, including ILA cosmetics and ingredients grown in CHI, The Spa’s dedicated garden, are organic and/or locally sourced. Guests can even visit our garden to partake in the making of the ointments that will be used during their treatment.
