Spas and yoga studios are a dime a dozen in the fast-paced city of Hong Kong. Why not think outside the box (if you haven’t already) when it comes to treating yourself? In this article, our friends at
Pacific Prime Hong Kong will introduce 5 unique wellness treatments worth trying in Hong Kong.

1. Crystal healing

Gorgeously translucent natural crystals are said to be conduits for channeling energy. Throughout human history, they’ve been used to restore and amplify clairvoyance, success, spiritual growth, love, and so much more. For more details, check out this round-up of unique wellness treatments.

Below are the most popular healing crystals during the COVID-19 pandemic:

Citrine - Powered by the sun, it combats fear and reduces your sensitivity to criticism. Citrine is believed to inspire confidence and help people navigate dark and turbulent times.

Smoky quartz - Associated with root chakra, this natural stone has grounding properties. Its ability to calm stress and anxiety is a godsend for those who work from home or are under social isolation/quarantine.

2. Japanese Acupuncture


Chinese acupuncture plays much of a starring role in Traditional Chinese Medicine. However, are you familiar with its distant cousin, Japanese acupuncture?

This might be a winner if you prefer a gentler approach with thinner needles and relatively shallow insertion. What’s more, its emphasis on touch as a pre-treatment to needle insertion makes for a more personalized/intimate experience.

3. Infrared saunas

Ever wonder if you could enjoy a sauna without searing heat and humidity? Infrared saunas are calling your name. Using light, they gently warm you from the inside of your body at a much lower temperature. Infrared saunas also boast a host of health benefits, including pain relief, relaxation, and help cleanse your body of toxins.

4. Fork therapy

Fork therapy is a type of sound therapy that involves tuning forks. As a non-invasive wellness treatment, it produces deep sound effects to soothe the mind and help release tension and balance energy blockages by applying specific vibrations to the body.


Cryotherapy, or literally “cold therapy”, exposes your body to North Pole-esque cold air (between -90°C to -140°C) for several minutes. It is said to treat mood conditions and migraines, numb pain, and manage skin disorders.

With nearly no end to the COVID-19 pandemic and the stress it brings, many have turned to ancient, holistic therapies. However, alternative wellness treatments may not be included in your insurance plan.
