6 Buzzy New Spa Treatments to Try Before Your Friends Do
We don’t advise competition among friends, but if you want to get into one of these buzzy new spa treatments, you should make an appointment ASAP. And the sooner you do, the sooner you’ll be wrapped in gold and looking younger than you did yesterday. That, and five more treatments we keep hearing about.
Skin Fitness Event at Mario Tricoci
The three-stage program (offered through April 1) includes ultrasonic peels to cleanse the skin, product infusions to nourish and microcurrent therapy to lift and firm. Hey, it takes a lot to look this relaxed.
900 N. Michigan Ave.; 847-202-1900 or tricoci.com
Digital Detox Massage at George the Salon
The only thing more unpleasant than the phrase “tech neck” is actually experiencing it. The tense, aching feeling around the neck and shoulders that comes with habitual computer and phone use gets relieved in this massage. Choose 25 or 55 minutes of targeted work from your scalp down to your shoulders and out to your hands and fingers. Bye, carpal tunnel (for now).
945 N. Rush St.; 312-923-9444 or georgethesalon.com
Ruby Room Viberassage
As it turns out, good vibes are something you can buy. Your therapist will first read your chakras to detect imbalances, then deliver a customized massage that uses tuning forks to balance the chakras through healing vibrations. Add flower and gem essences to the mix and you’ll be feeling very groovy.
1743-45 W. Division St.; 773-235-2323 or rubyroom.com
Dreamsicle Pedicure at Spa at Dana
Everything’s better with ice cream, which is why we’re dying to try this pedicure. A Mandarin-infused soak prepares your skin for an exfoliating dreamsicle sugar scrub and citrus-scented hot towel wrap. After a massage and moisturizer, it’s time for polish—don’t worry, you don’t have to pick orange.
660 N. State St.; 312-202-6000 or danahotelandspa.com
24K Gold Package at Spa at JW
Clear your schedule for this four-hour package. It begins with a Moroccanoil-infused scrub to prep your skin before a full body wrap of mineral-rich gold mud. As if that weren’t enough pampering, there’s also a scalp massage and 80-minute full-body massage (both of which involve more Moroccanoil). To top it all off, you’ll enjoy an 80-minute 24K gold collagen facial.
151 W. Adams St.; 312-660-8250 or marriott.com
The Cowshed Combo at Cowshed Chicago
Talk about a power lunch. Wednesdays and Thursdays, Cowshed doles out speedy mani-pedis along with a lunch combo of your choice (sweets are included) for $80. It’s perfect for a girls’ lunch, but if you’re rushing back to work, you can eat during your treatment or take it to go.
