Among the 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities at 1000M is the Spa, located on the building’s 11th floor. The Spa includes a number of innovative features not found in any other condo building in Chicago. Here’s a closer look.
Worth Its Salt
One of 1000M’s most unique features is the Himalayan Salt Room. Salt therapy, which involves simply relaxing in a room made of pure salt, is an ancient healing ritual that is gaining popularity in the U.S. Salt rooms are known to treat asthma and allergies; relieve headaches; bolster the immune system; and rebalance the body. 45 minutes in a salt room is the equivalent of 3 days of seaside air, and that’s something every Chicagoan can appreciate during a long, cold winter.
Hydrotherapy: It’s Hot…And Cold
1000M’s Spa also features side-by-side Hot and Cold Plunge Pools. Alternately moving from hot to cold water improves blood flow, speeds healing times, lowers stress, and enhances energy and mood.
Massage Your Mind
One of the coolest amenities at 1000M is the Spa’s Virtual Meditation Room, a quiet room featuring meditation cushions and a large flat-screen that plays guided meditation sessions accompanied by soothing images, video and sound, such as ocean waves. It is said that meditation can lengthen telomeres, the caps on chromosomes indicative of biological age…so living at 1000M can actually make you younger!
Other features of the 1000M Spa include a steam room, sauna, massage therapy room, relaxation beds and an ice fountain.
