Tucked inside the Landmark Building situated along Chicago's Printer's Row, Spa Anjou shelters clients from the nearby bustle with a tranquil umbrella of rejuvenating and relaxing spa treatments. The staff of trained aestheticians imbues Western-style aesthetic treatments with traces of Eastern philosophy, resulting in facials, microdermabrasion, and LED therapy that leave pores unclogged, fine lines diminished, and skin tones as healthy as an apple addict. The same glow carries over to the rest of the body, where aestheticians nourish the skin with Alaskan glacial mud from the Copper Riva Delta and unwind frayed nerves with reflexology and chair massages. Staffers also care for surface concerns, beautifying bods with additional services such as mani-pedis, eyebrow tints, and spray tanning.
