The Daoji clinic is a traditional Chinese clinic that has been in operation for over 80 years and is renowned within the country. Ouyang Zuyu, Associate Chief Physician of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Daoji clinic,explains ‘In traditional Chinese medicine theory, most diseases are connected with Du, Yu and/or Xu – Chinese concepts for elements invading the human body, congestion, and lack of necessary principles that keep the body functioning at a healthy level. Ouyang Yunheng, my father, created a treatment named “Zhengliao” which is based on analgesia treatment – relief from pain – in the form of dredging channel, expelling of toxins, regulating Yu (congestion of energy, blood, phlegm, food and water), and repairing the kidney. This treatment can refresh the whole body in a short period of time, achieving a return to health once and for all.’ Guests can unwind as Chinese therapists specifically trained in Zhengliao knead away every day stresses and strains, drawing upon the ancient wisdom and techniques of traditional Chinese medicine in the two-hour bespoke session.
LUX* Resorts & Hotels Chief Spa and Wellness Officer, Jeff Butterworth, says ‘The Zhengliao treatment is setting a new benchmark in spa treatments. We have taken all the traditional spa pampering elements and fused them with a deeply healing experience. This is an authentic rejuvenating treatment that can only be found outside of China in LUX* Resorts & Hotels’. Traditional Chinese herbs are used to heat the body whilst specialised massage techniques work the body energy meridians, cupping to release any stagnant energy. All acupressure points are stimulated to restore balance to the underlying energy systems, leaving guests with improved sleep, digestion and arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions, while reducing stress, assisting in weight loss, and raising energy levels, for a lighter, brighter lifestyle.
