The grand unveiling of the newly refurbished space included cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, product demonstrations and even a traditional Chinese dragon dance.

The dance — and much of the ethnic food served at the affair — hinted at the brand-new element of the spa: the Chuan Body + Soul corridor, focusing on traditional Chinese medicine.

Chuan treatments focus on the five elements of Chinese philosophy — wood, ; fire, ; earth, ; metal, ; and water, — breathing rituals and acupressure. A specialist takes guests through a five-part questionnaire to determine which life element is out of balance. Each spa treatment, with added essential oils, incense and teas, works toward restoring harmony.

Treatments under the new Chuan umbrella include: Flight Recovery, to combat jet lag, fatigue and mental exhaustion; Tao of Detox, with full-body exfoliation, algae-wrap, acupressure massage and anti-aging facial; and acupuncture therapies to target tension, stress reduction or even food cravings.
