The Hedonist has a healthy degree of scepticism about most medical interventions, preferring to believe in the undoubted curative properties of the dry Martini, but the offer of a treatment at the chi yu wellness centre in Marylebone (Chi Yu is the Japanese for healing) seemed like too good an opportunity to pass up.
The centre is a calming urban oasis that feels authentically Japanese and after an initial health assessment carried out by my charming therapist, Mami Tsang, I was led into one of the treatment rooms where I undressed and lay down on the treatment bench. At this point I have to make an admission. The Hedonist is a runner and so I had a variety of leg and foot related niggles as well as the stresses and strains of everyday pleasure seeking for Mami to contend with. The therapists at Chi Yu are all trained in a variety of Western and Eastern disciplines and I chose the chi yu integrated therapy to allow Mami to the best opportunity to restore my natural energy flow.
