The end of each year is always time to pause and reflect; and through two years of a pandemic, many of us are feeling beaten down. As a result, our bodies and minds may not be functioning at our best. Do you find yourself spacing out mid workday? Or not being able to push yourself as hard as youâ€™d like on your workouts? Weâ€™ve been there too.

Fuel the mind and body with food
TCM believes that food is medicine and the best way to go about your daily meals is to tailor it according to your environment and your body constitution. All the meals and tea pairings at Re: Qi Urban Revival is carefully curated, personalised and planned based on your individual needs.
Bold meals featuring traditional Chinese medicinal foods fused with modern Asian flavours will be available throughout the retreat.
Re: Qiâ€™s TCM cocktails
Unwind with a curated cocktail
Alcohol is often associated with adverse health benefits, but TCM has a much more positive view. The Chinese have a long history of using alcohol for healing purposes - it has been used as the base for medicinal concoctions to enhance the efficacy of herbs. It is also known for vitalising the spleen, liver, stomach, and small intestine and promoting blood circulation and qi, when consumed in moderation and â€œprescribedâ€ based on the individualâ€™s body constitution.
