Autumn is the perfect time to explore NEMA Chicago’s neighborhood and discover the local destinations that will become your favorite places to recharge, shop, and luxuriate. Spas like Elements Massage, DQ Luxury Reflexology Massage & Retreat, and the Chuan Spa at The Langham will make for a blissful stay-cation you can enjoy any day of the week near your South Loop Chicago luxury apartment. You’re now living with immediate access to the best of the city. We invite you to make these tranquil spaces, unique venues, and soothing treatments a part of your new life.

The treatments at DQ, which are based on the foundational ideas of ancient Chinese medicine, provide so much more than relaxation alone. According to reflexologist Deborah Flanagan on, "Reflexology reduces stress (a major contributing factor to disease), enhances the body's ability to heal itself, and balances both body and soul. Research shows that a single reflexology session can create relaxation, reduce anxiety, diminish pain, improve blood flow, and decrease high blood pressure." With DQ so close to home, you can make their Luxury Combo Treatment, which includes head, neck, shoulder, back, and foot massage along with reflexology, a part of a weekly routine that puts self-care front and center.

Another beloved spa whose ethos is based on Chinese medicine is the Chuan Spa at The Langham. A true oasis both in design and offerings, the space is filled, according to Forbes Travel, with "Asian décor flourishes with delicate lines, gorgeously painted screens, careful attention to light and dark contrast, and stones and waterfalls." The Chuan blends the pampering effects of pure luxury with sensory evocations of nature so well that it will have you convinced that the best way to achieve inner harmony is to stay right here in town.

Of course, the only thing better than not traveling far to be transported is not leaving the house at all. With the NEMA Life app, residents can book a massage or a visit to the spa-like setting right in your building. Additionally, enjoy our saunas and steam rooms or indoor and outdoor pool and hot tubs.

Take your transformation of your home into a sanctuary one step further with a shopping adventure at Arts & Artisans. It’s filled with locally crafted objects like the Candelabra Curve, which functions both as a sculpture and as a way to introduce candlelight into your design scheme, whether it’s for an intimate dinner or a meditation session. Local finds like this beloved shop help foster the rich exchange between your life at home and your life in the city. NEMA Chicago will bring you the perfect balance of me-time and constant discovery that only these South Loop Chicago rentals can offer.
