NUO SpaNUO Spa, with its eight treatment rooms, derives authentic Chinese heritage wellness treatments inspired by “Huangdi Neijing”, also known as the “Yellow Emperor's Inner Canon”, an ancient Chinese medical text which has been treated as the fundamental and most comprehensive doctrinal source for traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for the past two millenia.
According to the Canon, the universe is controlled by natural energies such as “Yin” and “Yang”, the life force “Qi” and the Five Elements (or seasonal phases). A holistic balance of these forces and energies with the changing seasons, as well as the natural effects of diet, lifestyle, emotions, environment, and age are required for a healthy lifestyle.
With the changing of the seasons, the wellness and beauty treatments at NUO Spa aim to boost the “Yang” energy during spring and summer and nourish the “Ying” energy during autumn and winter to harmonise daily energy with the breath and spirit, stimulate the senses and purify the soul.
NUO Spa's proprietary essential oils and special fragrances are custom-created exclusively for NUO Hotel Beijing, inspired by renowned traditional Chinese physician Li Shizhen's greatest contributions to Chinese pharmacology, “Compendium of Medical Material” and “Syllabus of Medical Herbs”, and extracted from high-quality natural ingredients and special herbs. NUO Spa's signature treatment is the Warm Wood Signature Massage, which combines Oriental martial arts elements with a traditional Chinese healing regimen, coordinating and harmonizing the yin and yang, resulting in a relaxed, almost meditative state.
Prior to beginning the treatment, the therapist will guide the guest in a 10-minute stretching and rhythmic breathing exercise in order to warm up and relax. The therapist then deploys a wooden ash stick, very smooth, heavy and pliable, for the massage. The stick is warmed with especially formulated massage oil and used for rolling, kneading, point pressing and other massage methods, to deeply relax the muscles, and stimulate the lymphatic circulation, soothing, detoxifying and generally enhancing overall health and wellbeing.
During treatment, guests can listen to a compilation of soothing music exclusively composed for NUO Spa—“ Aqua mix incense”, inspired by the concept of the water section in Li Shizhen's “Compendium of Medical Material”. The soothing sanctuary of NUO Spa and its team of well-trained, meticulous therapists combine to create a serene lifestyle urban oasis in the heart of Beijing.
