An interview with Ms. Wang Xingyu,
the Founder of Xing Hua Chun Yu SPA
Xing Hua Chun Yu SPA was founded over 30 years ago in 1988. The Founder Ms. Wang Xingyu believes that Xing Hua Chun Yu is a representation of her mother’s “Jiangnan Dream”. In 2002, the flagship spa of Xing Hua Chun Yu opened in Haikou, featuring colorful interior design and high quality spa treatments and soon won a large group of loyal customers. With a gifted sense of art and a passion for creating beauty, Ms. Wang also integrates original hand-carved furniture making and spa space design into the scope of business. In the past 20 years, she has made many meaningful and interesting contributions to building an original Chinese brand in the spa industry.
“After thirty years of development, Xing Hua Chun Yu has become a one-stop service brand with excellent management model, independent R&D to develop professional techniques, a range of self-developed essential oil and skincare products, a spiritual space design, and unique hand-painted furniture and spa clothing. My heart’s desire is to gather the best essence of spa and provide the perfect health solutions and healing experience to our guests.” says Xingyu. SpaChina interviewed her.
The design of Xing Hua Chun Yu is very attractive. Please share with us your design concept and source of inspiration.
I used to go to Thailand for vacation many years ago and had the chance to experience the authentic Thai SPA. The relaxing massage and stretching and the meticulous and caring services left a very deep impression on me.
The decoration style of Xing Hua Chun Yu is quite close to that of Southeast Asia, especially Thailand. I believe that every detailed elements such as wood, fabric, veil, floral, greenery, water, and incense all have their values in the spa experience. At Xing Hua Chun Yun, I use a lot of contract colors that are visually very impactful. I like the pure beauty and exoticism brought by these colors.
What do you think Xing Hua Chun Yu SPA is for you?
Xing Hua Chun Yu SPA is like a piece of my personal artwork that is constantly updated and enhanced. I present the SPA as I believe it should be at Xing Hua Chun Yu. I carefully select each type of wood that is used, elaborately design each object on display, and meticulously range each flower and leaf. During this process, my inspiration is constantly flowing. Xing Hua Chun Yu carries my thoughts, inspirations and visions. Many guests feel attracted, as if they are admiring a piece of art and feel the impact of this artwork on their hearts.
Spa is such a place that can give people the impact on heart and spirit. Physical relaxation alone is far from enough to represent the holistic healing that a spa can offer.
Please introduce one of the most popular Thai treatments at Xing Hua Chun Yu SPA.
The 90-minute Royal Stress Relief is a Thai-based treatment that our guests really enjoy. The price is $1,380. It leads guests to stretch and breathe, helps to regulate their meridian channels and bones, and enables them to experience a stretching like never before. This treatment combines authentic Thai foot bath and ancient styled stretches, as well as herbal compresses, leaving guests completely relaxed. Regardless of age and gender, most of our guests enjoy this treatment after experiencing it.
What factors do you take into account in the process of treatment development?
I will repeatedly try and study a treatment myself, requiring not only physical comfort, but also mental healing. For example, during the stretching sessions, not every movement can bring comfort and relaxation due to the different physical conditions of each person. Sometimes, inappropriate and excessive stretching can even break the original balance and relaxation of the body and mind, and create a tension in the muscles and the heart as well.
To me, our guests’ sense of experience is very important. So, my team and I carefully study every detail, and remove some of the big movements in the original Thai treatment that may arouse inner confrontation and fear and make appropriate adjustment and improvement. We implant the passive yoga movements that fit well with Thai massage, so that the guests can really achieve complete relaxation of the body and soul. A good spa treatment will surely take consideration of both the body and mind and understand that they are interactive. Physical comfort leads to mental pleasure, which in turn enables the body to further develop its self-healing power. What I try to do is to let guests experience such a holistic healing of both body and mind.
What are your future plans?
I will continue to devote myself to my favorite career, develop more spa treatments, make more artistic creations, and give back to the society and our loyal customers who trust us.
