A recent visit to the Oriental Spa at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong was prompted by the spa’s distinct philosophy of bringing “harmony to mind, body and spirit”. In pursuit of rejuvenating skin and facial tones, this philosophy served as an intriguing invitation to immerse and “experience”, first hand. Entering the spa sanctuary, familiar hallmarks of a place of wellness instantly stand out: the sounds of water, soft musical harmonies, warm lighting and aromatic smells are effective stimuli. Ushered along warmly lid corridors and a number of private treatment suites, Ruby, assigned to revive this man’s weary skin, extends her warm welcome and invitation to relax.

A memorable moment, indeed, was the facial massage performed in perfect harmony to pressure points around temples, cheek and chin bones, the eyes and nose – stimulating muscles to release unwanted tensions.
