QIN AT THE FOUR SEASONS HOTEL SHANGHAI
Qin The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai is an enclave of retreat from the bustling city, offering discreet personalised service. Qin, which is pronounced "chin" and means to "affect deeply," is a contemporary urban sanctuary offering nine treatment rooms, including two couple's rooms. The menu of over 37 spa treatments and beauty therapies is inspired by the ancient rites and healing methods of traditional Chinese medicine. Qin The Spa also provides a private manicure and pedicure room, a consultation space for acupuncture and a separate area for foot reflexology – a staple of Chinese wellness practices – as well as separate men's and women's saunas, steam rooms, hot whirlpools and a hair salon on the fourth floor.
The main entrance, located on the sixth floor of the Hotel, welcomes with its wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling lacquered door of aged elm wood, reminiscent of the enormous imperial palace doors common in the early Chinese dynasties. Within is a quietly stylish haven of textured black granite flooring, contemporary Chinese furniture and beautiful objects distinctive to the destination. Each treatment room takes on a unique character, distinguished by richly ornate interiors and trigrams based on the I Ching - eight symbols arranged in a hexagonal shape, which signify the universe's eight defining phenomena: sky, earth, thunder, wind, water (moon), fire (sun), mountain and lake.
Qin The Spa encompasses 762 square metres (8,200 square feet), and the retail area offers specially blended Qin The Spa products. These products are designed to pair with each of the spa's signature therapies. Products include body scrub, face and body mist, body balm, essential oils and skin and beauty care. All are made using all-natural fruit and herbs, with no artificial colourings.500 Weihai Road, Shanghai 200041, China
