Vogue.es - April 200
"There are occasions where the small details allow for a global gratifying experience full of surprises. This is what happens at the Chi Spa, where comfortable slippers substitute the shoes from the moment that one crosses the dividing line between the street and this urban oasis. Once inside, one forgets the sounds of mobiles (it is obligatory to turn them off) and the incessant noise of the city, as one enters into a space of peace, carefully decorated to create harmonious and relaxing ambiances.
And we continue with the details: all the cabins are equipped with individual showers for the commodity of the client; there are individual lockers where one can deposit his or hers personal objects; on both floors (the lower destined for treatments for men and the upper territory for exclusive use by women) there are relaxation rooms where one can spend a pleasant time reading magazines or having an infusion (it is also recommended to arrive a with a bit of time before the treatment to get the maximum benefit out of it), while the music varies based on the area where you find yourself.
All this prepares the body and soul to undergo one of its selected treatments, like the revitalizing body treatment of marine mud from the coasts of Brittany or the Resplendence facial, which stimulates the lymphatic drainage, liberalizing toxins. There are treatments specifically designed for the male necessities, a great value added of the center, which in addition sells all the products it uses in its treatments."

New Esthetics - May 2003
"Chi Spa - esthetics for gourmets. The Zen ambience in the Chi Spa opens doors to a world of sensations. To enter into this new center of beauty and health supposes an invitation to get rid off the daily stress and to enjoy the most exquisite beauty and relaxation treatments.
In every corner the details are looked after: the dimmable lighting allows to create ambiances to the desired effect; therefore the lighting is dim and soothing in the spaces where calmness and peace dominate and is stronger in the common areas. A sophisticated sound system makes it possible that the music be varied throughout the different zones and the decoration is dominated by uniformity of colors, textures - dark wood, textiles in soft camel colors, whitewashed walls... everything to accentuate equilibrium and calmness.
In the Chi Spa the esthetician converts herself into the perfect hostess, designs the treatments for each person, like a hand made suit, and with her constant attention achieves to transmit to the client positive energy, driving it to a state of relaxation and interior balance.
This center opens its doors to women and to men; for this reason its space is divided in two independent floors, the lower destined for male treatments and the upper for women."
