If a name like Angels Feet wasn't enough to let a customer know this business's focus, one step inside would do the trick. Long rows of cushy massage chairs draped in clean linens line the long studio, each paired with a matching ottoman just waiting to cradle a foot or two. Therapists lead each newly arrived customer to one of these chairs, where they welcome feet to soak in a salt-water solution as they massage the guest's scalp, neck, shoulders, and arms. After a dousing of lotion, the therapist begins the foot-reflexology massage, which seeks to quell stress and ease pain by targeting areas of the feet believed to correspond to organs in the body. Finally, they wrap feet in steamed towels and give ankles and legs an invigorating stretch. When the session concludes, customers refresh themselves and help purge toxins from their systems with a cold beverage and a nap on a giant magnet.

Jennifer Niesel talks about massage with the kind of reverence others might reserve for a priceless work of art. From the first stroke of any of her custom massages, it’s clear that practices what she preaches. Her artistry extends to specialty modalities such as her hot-stone massage, during which warm stones become extensions of her hands as they render muscles more malleable than a bar of gold Play-Doh.
Jennifer counts Swedish, prenatal, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage among her other talents. She prides herself in her ability to educate and provide tools to clients to ensure that their muscles stay limber between visits to her studio.
Dr. Parol Pitroda hails from the Chicago area and completed her residency at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park.

With the names Gold and Diamond, AA Salon & Spa's menu might read like a a jewelry store's inventory. But here, the goal is not to festoon the neck or the ring finger, but instead the entire face. The skincare specialists do that with facials, including the Gold and Diamond varieties, that combat blemishes or signs of aging by using products such as oils from Turkey to deeply moisturize visages. Other services include hairstyling, waxing, and makeup application.
