Traditional Chinese Medicine 

Taking a holistic approach to wellbeing, TCM aims to prevent illness by addressing every individual’s unique patterns of disharmony – the areas of imbalance that could lead to ill health. Treatments are tailored to restore personal equilibrium, balancing yin and yang to ensure that Qi, the body’s life force, flows freely through the 12 meridians or energy pathway in the body. 

Healing Herbs  

Created in collaboration with Tong Ren Tang, a former imperial medical dispensary that served the Qing Dynasty for almost 200 years, Aman Spa’s seasonal herbal poultice is placed over the skin and accompanied by a soothing massage. This generates warmth in the internal organs, stimulating circulation and easing muscle tension to inspire deep relaxation. 

The art of Tai Chi 

Considered both a martial art and a moving meditation, Tai Chi developed in China over 800 years ago. The slow, rhythmic and graceful movements allow Qi to circulate around the body, encouraging optimum health and calming the mind. Join a Tai Chi master for a private Tai Chi session in a tranquil courtyard or within the Summer Palace grounds. 

Singing Bowl Therapy

Surrounded by an aura of mystery, singing bowls from the Himalayas are known for their vibrational healing powers and meditative benefits. Resonating throughout the body, their stable, high frequency vibrations calm the body and mind.
