Here you will find an oasis of tranquility in the heart of Chicago. The soothing setting inspires contemplation and introspection as you embark upon a journey designed to balance the mind, body and soul. In Chinese, Chuan means flowing water. As the source of life, water represents the re-birth and re-balancing of our whole being. Your Chuan Spa journey begins once you pass through our Moon Gate. Like entering a secret garden where one feels a spirit of rejuvenation, your wellness journey nurtures, heals and restores.
Chuan Bathing Ritual
Before your treatment, embark on a natural water journey – the Chuan Bathing Ritual. Located within each changing room is a series of rooms designed to reinvigorate the body's reaction to hot and cold stimuli to create deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well-being.
This ritual begins with an aromatic sensory and moderate heat experience in the Herbal Sauna allowing the heat to loosen and soothe tightened, congested muscles and the herbs to open the respiratory system. For more intense heat, relax in the Salt Stone Sauna, which releases negative ions to create a fresh, clean, bacteria-free environment. Blocks of pure Himalayan salt stone line the wall creating a calming environment and assists in reducing stress, respiratory and skin ailments.
Transition to our Aromatherapy Shower to awaken your spirit with invigorating scents. Then enter our Oriental Steam Room where you will be greeted by the soothing scent of Chamomile. Linger longer on one of the ergonomically-designed relaxation recliners radiating soft warmth directly on your body to create a sense of harmony.
With your mind and body now in equilibrium, you are a step closer to rediscovering your source.
