From the desk worker with an achy lower back to the mom-to-be with sore joints to the athlete with knot-ridden shoulders, Ridge Massage offers a massage style for everyone. In addition to classic therapeutic, deep-tissue, Swedish, and maternity massages, the therapists also administer reflexology and scalp-rejuvenation sessions to relieve pain and promote relaxation.
But don't let its name fool you—Ridge Massage is a full-service spa, also offering an array of facials for men and women that can treat acne, lessen signs of aging, and finally remove that face paint from your kindergarten carnival. Techs also rid clients of unwanted hair with whole-body waxing services.
When it first opened its doors in 2000, the European Foot and Ankle Clinic set out to keep feet healthy by combining conventional medical treatments and holistic practices. Over the past 12 years, this unique approach to treatment has garnered a following, and the clinic gradually expanded to 10 locations throughout Chicago. At each location, multilingual doctors in podiatric medicine treat issues ranging from heel pain to toenail fungus to chronic stubbed toes caused by regularly throwing childlike temper tantrums.
The physicians and aesthetic staff all possess warm, friendly demeanors, ensuring that clients feel comfortable as they undergo one of the center's many beautifying treatments. Continually looking for new ways to rejuvenate exteriors, the aestheticians have developed a facial that harnesses the flavonoids and resveratrol in chocolate to neutralize free radicals that may have waged a microscopic poke war on skin. The spa's mission statement, etched into tan-hued walls, promises "a soothing, comfortable experience" during all services, such as Thai massage and Jane Iredale–makeup applications. Several services take a more scientific approach, employing lasers to remove spider veins, hairs, and cellulite.

For those looking to shed winter coats, Oxygen’s FDA-approved, noninvasive laser hair-reduction treatment can clear all types of hair on any part of the body with controlled pulses of energy.
Reflections of Health Integrative Care Center's trained staff dissipate tension-filled nodules through a one-hour massage and wellness practices tailored for each client. Let the licensed therapists decompress overstressed bodies with the deep-tissue massage, in which a muscle manipulator's dexterous digits delve into the deeper layers of tissue to release chronic stress and cooped-up sardines. Treat tired tootsies to the foot-centric reflexology massage, during which specific nerve zones in the feet are targeted to bring harmony to tone-deaf Achilles tendons, or unwind as a therapist renders relaxation and physiological benefits through a hot-stone massage. Other available massages include Swedish, sports, and prenatal.
Brothers Phung Van and Vuong Van have a lot in common: both played sports, sustained injuries, and ultimately embraced chiropractic care as a way to heal. Today, the two doctors share their knowledge with patients in their practice, using modern and traditional techniques to relieve pain and ward off future injury. Adjustments and orthotics realign the body, while kinesio taping and rehabilitative exercises help clients get back on the court.
