HGU New York Hotel Partners With Modrn Sanctuary

HGU New York Hotel has partnered with luxury wellness center Modrn Sanctuary to offer new health treatments and specialty services for hotel guests. The new offerings include a Somadome Meditation Pod, Sensory Seven Crystal and Energy Healing, a Himalayan Salt Room, and new 'Salty Suite' hotel accommodations with in-room Himalayan salt amenities curated by Modrn Sanctuary. The new experiences will be available in-room (select treatments only) at HGU New York or at Modrn Sanctuary's NoMad location, nearby the hotel.

Here’s what each of the new treatments entails:


The personal meditation dome integrates three healing modalities to facilitate meditation and “whole person” alignment. Guests choose from one of eight themed, guided or unguided meditation tracks that combine traditional color theory with scientifically tested binaural beat technology and proprietary energy-healing microcrystalline tiles. Sessions are 20 minutes long.

The Sensory Seven Light, Sound and Energy Therapy

The Sensory Seven is an immersive experience that combines seven healing modalities into one treatment (30-, 45- and 60-minute sessions available), including: Binaural Beats and Sound Therapy; Vibration Therapy; Vogel-Cut Quartz Crystals; Frequency Generator; LED Lights and Chromatherapy; Magnetic Therapy; and Infrared Biomat. The Sensory Seven Treatment can be offered in-room at HGU New York or at the Modrn Sanctuary studio.

Himalayan Salt Room

Salt therapy, also called halotherapy, is a holistic healing method that reproduces the natural microclimate of a salt cave by dispersing saline aerosol in a high concentration in a room "constructed" of salt. The granulated salt in the air penetrates deep into the lungs, allowing the particles to draw out impurities and foreign substances. The salt also assists with normalizing pH levels of the skin which can, in turn, induce its natural regenerative and reparative processes. This makes salt therapy a great complement to any treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Treatments in the Himalayan Salt Room are semi-private and last 30 minutes. 

The 'Salty Suite' Experience

In addition to Modrn Sanctuary's offerings, HGU New York has created the new 'Salty Suite' package for guests looking to extend the salt experience beyond the Himalayan Salt Room. The new experience includes such in-room salt amenities curated by Modrn Sanctuary as an air-purifying salt lamp, nightlight, salt shot glasses and Himalayan salt soaks. Tip: Guests are encouraged to take the shot glasses and nightlight home with them, extending their salty experience even more.

Guests of HGU New York can also take advantage of recently launched rooftop yoga classes, in-room guided meditation sessions, in-room REVIV vitamin IV treatments, cryotherapy sessions at Vitality NYC, GuardLab mouthguard fittings, a pillow concierge and complimentary access to Solace Gym, next door.
