“TRANQUIL TREATMENTS. The Marylebone neighbourhood just a few blocks off Oxford Street is one of London’s wellness hotspots. A local favourite is Japanese Chi Yu Wellness Centre specialising in holistic treatments combining acupuncture, aromatherapy, massage, and other complementary therapies. “Many Londoners and travellers look for stress relief,” says Mami Tsang, founder of Chi Yu. But as we all experience stress in a slightly different way, Tsang and her team always look for a unique, tailored treatment that will leave the customer feeling relaxed, energised, and ready to take on the world.”
L’institut Chi Yu. Dans le centre, à Marylebone, j’ai déniché un petit institut boudoir qui mixe techniques japonaises, chinoises, taï et acupuncture pour des modelages énergétiques sur mesure qui te remettent sur pied en une séance. Ne pas repartir sans un flacon d’Huile de Magnolia, trésor anti-âge pour le visage (www.chi-yu.co.uk).
Approximate translation “In the centre, in Marylebone, I found a small boudoir institute that mixes Japanese, Chinese, Tai and acupuncture techniques for tailor-made energy massages that put you back together in one session. Do not leave without a bottle of Magnolia Oil, anti-ageing treasure for the face”

B Use your finger tips to work on your trapezius muscle, then massage the base of your neck with your thumbs. C Work your ‘Pericardium 6’ point. It’s on your inner wrist, three fingers’ width down from the crease. Repeat on your other arm. D Massage the webbed area between your thumb and index finger.

They help revitalise the mind, body and soul in the best way possible – the natural way– and there’s no better place to do this than at holistic wellness spa, Chi Yu, located in the heart of Marylebone, London.
Mami Tsang, Owner and Principle Practitioner of Chi Yu, has personally reaped the benefits of Eastern medicine, having suffered headaches and back pain during her early years. With the utmost faith in herbal remedies, Mami has become a master in massage, having trained in over 16 different types of treatments. Her portfolio boasts repertoire of massages from Somato Emotional Release Therapy, a process designed to rid the mind and body of residual physical and mental stress collated from negative experiences, to Tui na, a hands-on Chinese treatment that works to open up the body and restore the natural flow of energy.” Read more (article link) or PDF version.

“As soon as the door shuts on number 36 George Street, the hustle and bustle of the street is left behind and the oasis of calm within engulfs me…. In my Italian mind’s eye, I have Mami (owner and founder) down as a rather large middle aged lady wielding a rolling pin. Nothing could be further from the truth of course. Mami Tsang is petite and graceful and very Japanese.” Read more (Article: Marylebone Journal, Jan 2015)

I have a fascination with the East when it comes to health and beauty. Their holistic approach to medicine has always interested me, even more so since a Chinese doctor fixed my Nan’s back hernia that western doctors claimed could only be cured with a very risky surgery. Not to mention their innovation in the beauty arena, with South Korea being where all big Western corporations are looking at for inspiration. So when I walked past Chi Yu on George Street I knew I had to come in for a treatment and for a cup of lovely herbal tea.
A wellness centre, not a spa, Chi Yu is inspired by traditional Japanese philosophy and provides personal holistic treatments to balance body, mind and soul. Chi Yu means healing in Japanese and the complimentary therapies aim to support the body’s own healing process. Prior to my treatment I was in contact with the well reputed and very knowledgeable Mami Tsang, who founded the salon over five years ago. She recommended I tried Integrated Therapy, one of their signature and more popular treatments, which combines any number of techniques in order to suit the client’s needs and preferences. Anything from aromatherapy and meridian massage to acupuncture and acupressure can be incorporated, based on an initial assessment, to provide a truly bespoke experience.” Read more (article link) or PDF version.

With a range of products that count Megan Fox, Dita Von Teese and Jessica Biel as fans, you’d be hard pressed to find a facial that holds as much promise as this one. Designed for women in their 20s and 30s who aren’t quite ready for a full ammo of anti-ageing products just yet, this treatment gives skin the boost of spot-fighting and free-radical protection it needs in order to duke it out against those pesky early wrinkles. With key ingredients including redcurrant and a potent Antioxidant Complex, it poses a triple threat for winter weary skin in terms of hydration, vitality and elasticity. The fan club can count me as a member now too. My skin has never felt so soft after a facial and that was all thanks to the magic hands of Mami Tsang, the owner of Chi Yu Wellness Centre and GTG Expert. (Get the Gloss Link).

Integrated Therapy in Chi Yu. Don’t let the name put you off. I’ve sent countless friends, family and colleagues into the firm hands of the Chi Yu team for this treatment and all have returned rapturous (some even claiming lifelong ailments felt alleviated).
What does it consist of? In short, it is a combination of therapies – meridian massage, reflexology, acupuncture – to redress imbalances particular to you. The team at Chi Yu are wonderful at understanding the form and this treatment is therefore different for each individual on each separate visit depending on what is necessary. Throw in the fact that this isn’t just a session that is deeply relaxing, but has knock-on benefits, and you could not spend an hour (or two) anywhere better to fortify yourself prior to New Year’s Eve.

“The feeling of stagnancy is a hard one to shake. After the vigour of summer months, by mid-October, I usually feel comparatively inert and heavy.
Chi Yuoffered a potential answer – a Jade & Bamboo massage. What the dickens is a Jade & Bamboo massage? A little online research proffered the following explanation: bamboo, once heated and rolled across the body, increases circulation and promotes relaxation.” Read more (article link) or PDF version.
