The urban retreat will offer rejuvenating and first-time treatments for the brand from its 2019-2020 Menu of Services, along with select services tailored to those seeking sanctuary from the everyday grind and dealing with the often unpredictable, harsh Windy City weather; highlights include:

  • City Life Facial*: Using concentrated oils, charcoal mud, serums and plant essences, this ultra-moisturizing facial repairs cellular structure by pulling out harmful toxins that lie underneath the skin, which can cause fatigue and a lack of mindfulness. The facial is accompanied by a full-body scrub to re-mineralize and restore the skin’s moisture texture.
  • City Life Massage*: Taking a scent-driven approach to healing the skin, this antioxidant-rich massage utilizes citrus cardamom (which depletes technological pollutants, free radicals and UV damage) to re-build and energize the body’s immunity and aid in stress relief.
  • Digital Detox Wrap*: This full body wrap begins with a dry brush exfoliation to increase blood flow and employs a highly mineralized seaweed body mask to restore balance and reverse the effects of technology. Deep relaxation is encouraged through a mini facial, scalp and foot massage, and is completed with a moisturizing application. 
  • Sound of Color Manicure: In this holistic and luxurious manicure, guests don earphones to follow a meditative journey linked to their vegan nail polish color. Following the appointment, guests can re-immerse themselves in the same mindful state whenever they glance at the color, promoting a sense of total wellbeing.  
  • Stressless CBD-Infused Massage: Developed with inspiration from global spa and wellness trends, natural cannabidiol is used to penetrate deep into the skin to relax the body and mind, as well as relieve tight muscles, lessen anxiety and aid chronic pain.
