The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Ocean Spa & Massage may be hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, but that doesn't stop the staff from trying to recreate the experience of lounging on an exotic beach. They largely succeed, thanks to a treatment menu that features relaxing massages, body waxing, and mani-pedis to go along with a full list of indulgent skin treatments. One of those treatments?the detoxifying mud cocoon?draws out impurities and induces metamorphosis with an application of warm mud followed by a thermal wrap.
Though it’s been open fewer than three years, Glimmer Salon has already expanded four times—a testament to its rapidly growing clientele and penchant for reinvention. Throughout the sprawling, open space, a team of amiable mane masters snips, colors, and styles strands to each client's specifications. The staff also performs services such as smoothing treatments, facial waxing, and massages. Warm earth tones blanket the walls and complement the sleek hardwood floors, and high-quality hair products line the glass shelves, plotting to swan dive into the coiffures of clients passing by.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Petzel found the chiropractic world by necessity. When high-school football injuries threatened to permanently bench him, a trip to the local chiropractor provided him the treatment needed to continue. Since then, he's founded Adisi, a wellness practice offering chiropractic care and physical therapy as well as wellness seminars on topics such as stress management and insomnia. Dr. Petzel also works closely with licensed massage therapist David Leja, who ease chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure.
The experienced stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists at Eurolux Salon & Day Spa aim to create a luxurious European spa experience. Inside a tranquil facility, guests can unwind with a glass of wine as nail technicians paint their nails, follow up a Swedish massage with a trip to the infrared sauna, or have their hair color boosted with high-quality European products. Extended evening and weekend hours help clients fit pampering into their busy schedules.
Alicia Miller grew up in a family that relied on conventional Western medicine to treat its ills. Imagine her surprise when she started her training as a massage therapist and discovered the world of naturopathic medicine. The pharmaceutical-free siren song of this field called to her so strongly that she went on to graduate from one of the few accredited naturopathic medical schools in the country and take ownership of Natural Care Clinic in Naperville. Here, she helps clients embrace better nutrition and root out the causes of chronic conditions with drug-free treatments and lifestyle changes. Her colleagues, David Miller and Gosia Fogut-Masur, offer therapeutic massage services that leave muscles relaxed and stress levels lower than a basement in Death Valley.
