Chuan Spa & Health Club invites guests to celebrate a new, refreshed version of themselves with a “Good Luck & Good Fortune” menu of offerings designed to renew the body and soul. Beginning Monday, February 16 to 22, the luxury spa and health club, located on the fourth floor of the AAA Five-Diamond Langham Hotel Chicago, features a special line-up of treatments rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), an ancient modality that assists in rebalancing one’s whole being.
For those selecting a treatment from the “Good Luck & Good Fortune” menu or one of Chuan Spa’s 21 specialty signature services, each receives a lucky red envelope containing a variety of discounts, free services, and add-ons for future visits. To top off a relaxing day of renewal, spa guests are invited to sip on a warming cup of Five Element Wellness Soup. Created by Travelle’s Chef Tim Graham, the soup is designed to boost the immune system while promoting good health and prosperity in the New Year ahead. For guests looking to enjoy an afternoon tea, Chuan Spa’s Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Sharon Viernes, will be on-hand to discuss and advise guests on at-home wellness practices throughout all afternoon tea seatings, located in the hotel’s Pavilion.
“We aim at providing an urban sanctuary where guests can escape for a soothing ambience inspired by the ancient principals of alternative Chinese modalities,” said William Myers, Director of Spa. “The countless benefits associated with our unique approach to balancing the body and mind through our Traditional Chinese Medicine driven treatments truly makes Chuan Spa a personalized, special experience for each and every visitor.”
Acting as the only global spa brand offering foundational TCM treatments, each spa service is based on five elemental forces: wood; fire; earth; metal; and wind. Upon identifying each guest’s element, it is then incorporated throughout every step of the Chuan Spa experience to properly heal, rejuvenate, and relax the body and mind.
