Forget heavy legs after a session at the Lanqi spa.

Start by settling in a comfy armchair, your feet in a basin of steam that diffuses plant extracts (a little bit like a steamer). Meanwhile, you get a head and shoulder massage--fabulous.

Continue with 45 minutes of reflexology. The masseuse, who has Chinese medicine training, pushes down on points that boost circulation. These pressure points can even sometimes take care of digestion issues, stress and insomnias.

The plus: a new tea, soup and infusion bar. A dedicated space, where with the guidance of experts, you sip a bitter cucumber infusion (6€) or a veggie soup with mushrooms and bamboos (9€), both recommended for their draining effect.
