A waterless spa comes downtown | Escape

Ending your working day with a guided meditation is what the new ephemeral space of the Strøm Nordic spa offers. Installed at the Palais des congrès de Montréal until the spring, the room dedicated to relaxation does not require you to drag your bathing suit, since there is no hydrotherapy course there.

No, we haven’t installed hot baths or saunas next to Van Gogh – Distortion. What we are offered are rather experiences (without water!) found in some Strøm spas.

A relaxation area and two interactive terminals that offer guided meditation in particular are accessible free of charge, while lumino-meditation and Zerobody cost around fifteen dollars each for 10 to 15 minutes.

Spa light?

What does Zerobody eat in winter? To live this “unique relaxation experience”, you lie down on a heated waterbed (but not like those of the 80s, we reassure you), which gives a feeling of weightlessness and causes physical and mental calm. .

According to Strøm spa, the Zerobody – which also comes with guided meditation – eases muscle tension and improves sleep quality and concentration.

As for lumino-meditation, you lie down on an infrared deck chair, headphones and PSiO luminotherapy glasses on your head.

Two types of visual stimulation are possible: continuous light, which would help against fatigue caused by lack of light in winter, and pulsed light, which involves various hues presented alternately. Subway was also able to experience the latter, which provides an invigorating sensation while promoting relaxation since it invites you to evacuate intrusive thoughts.

The ephemeral space of the Strøm Nordic spa at the Palais des Congrès also includes a shop and will offer occasional workshops during the cold season. It is open Monday to Friday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on weekends depending on traffic.
