Green Massage aims at providing soothing professional healthcare to busy people with fast-paced urban life in a private and elegant environment. It leads to the modern concept of health and healthcare, integrating modern scientific techniques on the basis of the theory of traditional Chinese medicine. It dredges the channels and collaterals, nourishes one's spirit and relieves pressure through comprehensive conscious massage, and other methods.
With its unique business operation, how to provide the quality and professional service has its high requisition. The whole treatment process is not only in the single massage room, it is starting from the entrance when the guest walks inside. This is a journey for the guest to recover from their fatigue, and the healing way is to touch for the human's five senses.
To satisfy the basic function, and to upgrade the whole sense of experience, that is our purpose.
“Moon” has many faces in different phases, with its beauty to stand calm and quiet, the endless loop doesn't disturb its rhythm, always gracefully to move in the space-time.
From ancient to modern, many artists inspired by the moon, the creation with different formats, to admire its mystery, romance, and full imagination. The first stop of human beings to choose to explore the universe is also the moon landing adventure. After time and times and repeated failures, Neil Alden Armstrong took a small step to unveil the mystery of the moon, but in the end, there is no myth or our imagination. Only the magnificence and solitude of the moon's surface are reached, and it is extremely calm.
The "Moon" can be seen in everywhere inside the space, the installation artwork "Moon Light" created by artist Yang Yong Liang is the poetic highlight in the space. The ball light and wall light also respond to the “Moon” figure, guide the people step by step into their healing journey, in order to remove their daily fatigue.
The design of the Green Massage, "Moon" has become our design concept. We try to isolate the hustle and bustle which is located in the busy shopping mall. The gray tone and texture full around in the whole space is like the surface of the moon, quietly diluting all the restlessness.
There is no sharp angle in the space, we used the curve to shape the line in space, with gently light reflecting, like the moon reflected the sunlight, it has become a soft filter, which naturally filters the disturbance from outside.
In Green Massage design, the purpose is to through the whole sense of interior experience then complete the journey. “As the moon lasting, as the sun rising”, is the circulation of the universe, every restart is the fresh return, will bring back the highlight in the lifetime.
