This week was one of the most busiest I had so far this year, back to back styling photoshoots, meetings and my pre wedding shoots. When I work hard, I must relax hard to recharge up my energy back to a balance level. That’s why I have decided to seek and try for various relaxation beauty that no only to benefit my outer appearance but bring calmness and harmony to both mind and body. Alex Scrimgeour, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and specialist in Dien Chan facial reflexology, is back at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong from May 17 to 28, 2016 for his Dien Chan facial reflexology. It was my very first time to experience this technique to point out over 300 individual points with specific functions on face map and action on body and mind. I have to say, I was very pleased with the treatment result which create a natural face lift, enhanced quality of sleep, the ability to combat back or neck pain and stress. Each treatment is tailored made for your personal need.
Arriving at the Mandarin Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong offers serenity and a meditative retreat in the heart of the hotel. A lovely view after a long day!
For example, my back was very stiff and heavy, Alex maps out the areas on my facial map. Then he uses facial massage techniques and tools will stimulate and open various points and clear away tension from the face and head. After treatment, I noticed an obvious light lift from your body to soul and overall balance.
A little tip I highly recommend, is to arrive 45 min before treatment to enjoying the spa facilities. My personal favourite is the Chinese herbal steam room.
