Anyone with a penchant for wellness will tell you traditional Chinese Medicine works wonders to calm the mind and restore the body, which makes The Langham Gold Coast’s Chuan Spa a standout. Head here for facials, massages and scrubs that focus on harmonising the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water).
