About BodyChromatics

In essence, we use movement to help improve your quality of life. We choose to do it through Gyrotonic exercises because of its effectiveness - both immediately after class, and longer-term for holistic health. A session usually starts with gentle spinal movements followed by legwork. Exercises are done under the guidance of the teacher, as well as with the help of the Gyrotonic machine. The machine is fully adjustable for height, strength and ability, making it both safe and possible for even the most inflexible person to stretch out and workout. Each client's goals are discussed right from the start, because Jireh tailors every exercise to her client's specific needs. To learn more, please visit

She has completed all Core Certifications with the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® International Headquarters.

A Hong Kong native, she dis­cov­ered Gyro­tonic while work­ing as an invest­ment banker. Strug­gling with headaches, back and shoul­der pains at the com­puter all the time, she prac­tised Gyro­tonic twice a week. When it only took 3 months to undo the pain and spinal dam­age (sco­l­io­sis) she lived with for 20 years, she real­ized that Gyrotonic’s holis­tic approach to health was very dif­fer­ent from other exer­cises she tried, and found it a very effec­tive and effi­cient method to rebal­ance, keep fit and stay strong in an enjoy­able and effort­less way.

New at Kocoon spa: Balance Bodywork with Regina

Balance Bodywork

Balance Bodywork is originated from the traditional Indian healing system Ayurveda. This Bodywork is based on deep tissue massage technique to release energy blocks in the body and to allow life energy to flow freely and balanced again.

Over time unrevealed emotions and thoughts manifest in the body. Muscles will get hard, joints stiff and energy cannot flow freely anymore. We will start to feel emotionally unbalanced, stressed and not in tune anymore.

Balance Bodywork helps to release tension in body and mind, to get in touch with your body and to deepen your body consciousness.

Individual Balance Bodywork Session: 90 min | 800 rmb
Availability from June 2013: Tuesday - Friday , 10:30 am -18:00 pm
Please con­tact us in advance to book an appointment

Born 1972 in Germany and educated as MBA Economist, Regina worked in various cooperate offices in different countries.
Moving to India in 2005, her interest in working on a deeper level with people developed and she started the training of Balance Body Therapy in Pune. Since 2012 she is living in Beijing and curious to introduce this work in China.

During the session, I slowly released all the stress I have accumu­lated. Regina took the time to massage every part of my body, thoroughly, and with her heart and soul. After the session, I was very relaxed, but also very tired from this release. Then the next day, I was light again, feeling very balanced and relieved from the pressure and heaviness. It is rare to find such an experience in Bei­jing, where the practitioner gives so much presence and dedica­tion…”, Maika Endo

Five Elements Therapy with Sarah Chung

Five Elements Therapy with Sarah Chung, TCM & Qi Gong Practitioner

The Concept of the Five Element Therapy

From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Man (being the son of Nature) possesses the same qualities that Nature does. Everything in the Universe can be classified as Yin and Yang, which can be divided into the Five Elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood.

These Elements have a specific role in bringing balance to the body and mind. If one element has an excess or deficiency of energy, the whole system suffers an imbalance which can be manifested in an emotional or physical condition. Balance can be restored or enhanced by draining where there is excess and nurturing where there is deficiency.  In our new Five Elements Treatment, we employ different techniques of Qigong,  Acupressure, Auriculotherapy, and Music Therapy as an Integral Method to restore or enhance your well being which leads to feeling better, sleeping better,  looking better, thinking more clearly, working better, and living better. Because life as everything else in the Universe has a balance to be kept. [hr]
