The research staff at 7E—a medical-aesthetic company that prides itself on skincare innovations—designs noninvasive treatments that combat the effects of aging and bolster all-over wellness. Once staff members have perfected a solution, they share the fruits of their labors with clients at 7E Fit Spa. One of these many fruits is the Torc Plus, an FDA-approved body-contouring machine that works to deplete inches and bulk up muscles in bodies through electrical stimulation. The spa’s noninvasive face-lifts tighten visages while evening out skin tone, reducing puffiness, and increasing circulation, and saunas detoxify the body and relax clients with infrared heat shoplifted from the equator.
As a full-service outfit, Mirror Mirror Salon Spa boasts a roster of expert stylists and aestheticians to preen and pamper bodies with services for men and women, including body wraps, perms, manicures, and facials.

Gold Coast Wellness brings both traditional and alternative healing under one roof. But whether a treatment plan involves chiropractic services, physical therapy, rehabilitation, or massage therapy, the center’s staff of physicians and medical professionals follows through with the aid of modern technology, from x-rays for diagnosis to X-wing fighters for defending the airspace over the clinic.
The staff shies away from what they call “ornamental aesthetics,” forgoing soothing music in favor of medical-grade techniques. But the office does hang local artists' paintings and photos on the walls to help guests take their minds off stiff necks and achy muscles. And to prevent mental strain and physical “darn it”-saying, the center provides online scheduling and complimentary valet parking.
Pilates is an excellent way to kick-start a fitness routine. The challenging movements and full-body stretching are designed to increase core strength and stamina. For your two private sessions, you’ll receive guidance from FTC-certified instructor Patrick O'Brien, who will help you transition from a stale, store-bought pretzel to a soft, fresh-baked German pretzel. Work out on both the Pilates equipment and floor mat under his supervision. He will help you correct body issues from technique to alignment and tailor the lessons to your specific physical needs. FTC is one of Chicago’s longest-standing Pilates studios, having opened in 1994. Its focus is on the human form and on making sure it operates naturally and healthfully, in line with its proper structure and function. Call to schedule your sessions.
