Are you looking to Revitalize your Mind, Body & Soul? Then Head to Chi – The Spa @ Shangri-La Hotel, Bangalore

No matter how hard we try to focus on living a better and healthier life, there are vices around that distract us, and we end up with overworking ourselves. I personally, love my “Me” time, guess living by myself, does give me that liberty. After a long day at the office,  I ensure I just unwind and relax either with a good book, or catch up on a good series (marathon on days) with a glass of Red. But once a month my ultimate goal is to ensure that my Mind, Body and Soul are rejuvenated. I owe this to myself.

This I leave it to the experts, to help me detox and calm my senses. We all dream of getting pampered all day at the SPA, and who doesn’t?  I was grateful that I got the opportunity and invited to be treated like royalty.

CHI, The Spa is one such luxurious sanctuary, that I highly recommend visiting. Located at Shangri-La Hotel, Bengaluru, on the 3rd Floor offers a series of amenities and grooming sections. There are a total of 9 therapy suites, 2 couple suites. The treatments are administered by highly skilled therapists. The interiors are wooden and feature curated Asian artifacts, along with well-designed lighting.

Did you know in Chinese philosophy, “chi” or “qi” is the universal life force that governs well-being and personal vitality. It is believed that “chi” must flow freely within the body for people to remain in good health. The spa incorporates five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Wood and Metal.

I was served Green tea to begin with, whilst the therapists asked me to fill out a questionnaire, to check up on my health and type of massage I was looking for.  I decided after consultation to go in for the Chi Balance. Trust me this one is a must for those who are stressed from all that work, and just looking to unwind and find a balance.

 Chi Balance” – A gentle but penetrating palm pressure massage focusing on balance, clarity and inner peace. Techniques also include acupressure and coordinated movements that originate in tai chi, with energizing massage for yang stimulation and relaxing massage  for yin calm. Pure synergy element oils are used to harmonize Chi flow. (The Duration lasts 90Mins)

I was whisked away, into one of the therapy suites, as you can see this was just one of the therapy rooms, so spacious, the temperature was just right. Each of the rooms come with private bath, shower, steam and relaxation lounge. I personally loved the vanity area. I quickly changed into the coziest and softest robes I had ever been in (if I could, I would have walked away in it).

Next up, I was sat down for feet cleansing. This ritual was luxurious on its own like a mini foot reflexology. My feet were soaked in warm water, and the sea salt was used to cleanse, followed by warm water poured to clear the salts. The entire ritual was so delicate, took about 15 mins. After drying my feet, I was asked to lay on the massage table.

Next I was asked to lay on the bed, for the massage to begin. I just indulged and soaked in every minute of the experience and drifted on and off as this was a 90-minute oil massage. I was so relaxed. The oil used has a mild aromatic fragrance. The therapists kept asking if the pressure she was applying was right. And it was!

She knew what she was doing. The technique combined the focus of acupressure on the reflex points of your feet, hands, back and shoulder. I had a gentle head and face massage to complete the treatment. I felt the energy buzz, as my body came alive. I could have sworn the therapist had healing hands. A nice shower later, I was completely relaxed and yet feeling vibrantly alive!

When at the Spa remember these essential to give you maximum relaxation – 

• Always, book in advance and try and arrive 15 minutes early, so as to allow time to let your senses begin to relax.
• Switch off your Mobile or keep it on Silent Mode during the therapy, you need a break and so does your phone!
• Remember to hydrate yourself with lots of water after your Spa treatment.

I would describe myself as someone who loves to eat good food and travel, am polished and classy, yet have that little girl spirit in me and my fashion sense is chic which has to be accompanied with bold statement pieces and fresh accessories. I love to get pampered, totally spoil myself, and why not? xoxo Deena Pinto #skinnygirldiairez

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring
    a blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same
    subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.
