Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa & Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal Room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in the room's dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice Room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock Room, slabs of siraka stone deploy infrared rays into prostrate patrons, inciting increased circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.
Using brands such as Essie, OPI, and China Glaze, the friendly technicians of Trendy Nail Salons decorate fingertips with a wide selection of colors displayed on wall shelves. Before nails receive eye-catching hues of ochre or mahogany, technicians tend to hands at individual manicure tables, clipping away excess cuticles and buffing down rough edges and vestigial quills. At pipeless pedicure chairs, mechanical massages work out knots while warm footbaths soften the skin and nails for easy trimming.
Danbee Spa's adept aestheticians treat digits and bodies to french or spa-style mani-pedis and waxing for both men and women. Manicures and pedicures polish beleaguered extremities, with some treatments providing paraffin-wax dips or salt to buff nails and grant clients the power to season pot roasts upon contact. In massages, therapists ease away muscle tension with kneading strokes targeted at tense areas. Spa technicians also offer to beautify clients for a range of events, including weddings, neighborhood parties, and birthday soirees.
LED Light Therapy of Illinois harnesses the power of the DreamSpa system to enhance clients’ quality of life. During 30-minute treatments, clients climb into a futuristic-looking pod that surrounds them with photon light energy. As they relax, the beams help to counter everything from stress and sleeplessness to pain and lack of energy.
Madeleine Spatz spent 30 years traveling the globe and styling hair on behalf of Rusk and Matrix before she opened Salon Selvaggio in Edison Park. Her philosophy is simple: she believes a haircut should look beautiful when styled and be left to dry naturally or be launched into outer space. The salon's green walls support portraits of rock stars and provide a bold backdrop for an eclectic collection of vintage furniture. Madeleine's boutique beckons waiting guests with accessories, candles, and imported European soaps. While stylists work with precision cutting techniques, custom dimensional color, and thermal and texture services, they draw from an arsenal of products by Aquage, Paul Mitchell, and Graham Webb. They also arrange tresses into elegant configurations for special occasions and primp nails with mani-pedis, paraffin treatments, and OPI polishes.
