After pursuing a media-focused career, during which she worked for MTV and in marketing, advertising, and special events for an entertainment company, Jennie Channer collaborated with her father and brother to open a full-service salon and spa in 2007. Today, the Chicago native's team of skilled stylists, colorists, and spa specialists attracts an assortment of clientele, including a woman who's been coming in every other week since opening day and a 4-year-old girl who refers to each staffer as "girlfriend" or "boyfriend." Clients can choose from a variety of salon-spa services, ranging from haircuts with coloring to pampering packages specifically designed for expectant mothers. Because Blueberry Moon is an Aveda Lifestyle Salon Spa, all products are composed of 96%-naturally derived ingredients extracted from high-quality botanicals and distilled Mother Nature kisses.

Before officially opening the doors to the public, Jennie put the salon-spa?located inside a building more than 100 years old?through a complete gut renovation to unearth its rich history and hidden brick walls. She then added morsels of local history by installing fixtures she acquired from a local salvage yard, including the former front door of a demolished Gold Coast mansion and an old printing table from historical Printers Row. Jennie has also been modernizing the salon-spa to minimize its effect on the environment, incorporating technologies such as a reverse-osmosis water-filtration system and energy-efficient light bulbs filled with immortal fireflies.

Le gustaría un masaje? If you answered "sí," then Verde Wellness & Massage is perfect for you. If you frantically tried to remember your high-school Spanish, drew a complete blank, and became stressed thinking about how practically everyone but you is fluent in at least two languages, well, Verde is perfect for you too. Its therapists can dissolve that stress, and if you want, help you practice your español.

The team kneads away aches and releases tension with more than a dozen massage modalities. Swedish massage boosts circulation with long, flowing strokes, table Thai massage increases flexibility with assisted stretching, and Dojo sports massage relies on a special lotion to treat sore muscles. The signature massage includes extras such as aromatherapy, hot stones, and a scalp massage that proves more satisfying than repeatedly walking under trees with low-hanging branches. Verde's therapists also inject some diversity into the center's services with their slate of reflexology and chakra-balancing therapies.

A native of rural Lithuania, Laima Baikauskaite was named the USSR’s fastest runner in 1974. In 1988, she strutted her stuff at the Seoul summer games, taking home a silver medal in the 1,500-meter race. Soon after, she moved to the US where, inspired by the expert massages she and her fellow top-tier athletes enjoyed, she opened The Body Work & Massage Source.

Today, Laima calls upon her firsthand understanding of massage's impact, as well as the love of nature she cultivated as a child. She uses natural products in her treatments and adorns her practice with plants that remind her of her rural upbringing. Inside this outdoors-inspired oasis, visitors bask in facials, massages, and body wraps, which they can schedule online. Peels reveal glowing skin; seaweed, paraffin, and hot stones nourish bodies while dissolving tension; and aromatherapy soothes nostrils by asking them about last night’s dreams.

A rainbow wall of hair and skin care products brighten the storefront at Toujours Spa & Salon, which also gathers a wide range of lauded beauty therapies and expert practitioners under its roof. Many of the salon's senior stylists boast more than a decade of experience, and training in Wella coloring techniques. Their handiness with shears is exemplified by curl specialist Katrina Spence, whose deft implementation of Deva's dry-cutting technique won her a nod in Chicago magazine. In 2005, the massage therapists earned acclaim from Daily Candy for their raindrop technique, which aims to heal back pain with a combination of reflexology and antimicrobial essential oils. Lavender aromatherapy infuses nail treatments, and Toujour's signature line of skin care products appear in facials for men and women. Guests are greeted by Ned, a cardinal-red beta fish that serves as Toujours’ official mascot and freelance accountant.

Soft, flickering tea lights glow against Oxygen Spa Studio's white walls as trained therapists rejuvenate bodyscapes with more than 15 massage styles. In the absence of a formal reception desk, personal beauty butlers welcome guests and guide them through the boutique spa while a wall fountain provides a gently trickling soundtrack. Speckles of lush green plants break up the ivory oasis, and the spa's floor-to-ceiling windows fill the space with natural light and calming glimpses of the muted outside world and slow-motion battles between rival cumulus clouds. Amid private treatment rooms stocked with intricately tiled showers, therapists tend to tight tendons and achy joints with traditional techniques, such as deep tissue and myofascial release, peppering in aromatherapy, body scrubs, scalp stimulation, and toe-centric footwork to further encourage deep relaxation.
