Hong Kong has always been a fast-paced city but recent years have featured moments that shook us all. Stress and burnout are prevalent during these turbulent times, so I’d like to share some of the ways I tackle them, from checking out for a bit to keeping mind, body and spirit in balance.
It may sound indulgent but I have had weekly massages for more than 15 years. After I suffered a slipped disc (which I am convinced was from work stress), they helped me recover. I am lucky to have therapist Jeff Lenz come to my home weekly to relieve my chronic back pain.
For pampering, I go to the Grand Hyatt’s Plateau Spa for a lymphatic massage. I feel healthier and less bloated after one session. I also get regular, no-frills foot massages at Foot at 88 Queen’s Road Central, which benefits my sleep and lowers my blood pressure.
