NU Age Med Spa's licensed therapists soothe hardworking muscles and delicate skinscapes under the supervision of Tom Klein, MD. Expert hands assuage aches and pains with massage or prepare skin for harsh weather and the inevitable pie fights of aging with aromatherapeutic, botanical products. Lasers do double-duty by rejuvenating skin and evicting hair, and medical injections and ultrasonic vibration present a high-tech twist on traditional facials. Cached within a stately brick medical center, the spa glows with warm earth tones and charms with accents such as a tropical fish tank.
The green and blue walls, potted plants, and landscape paintings within Halina's Skin & Body Care create a calming environment conducive to epidermal healing. Handpicked products by renowned lines such as Vital C and Daily Defense line tall shelves in the open lobby area. In private rooms, clients choose from a fleet of facial, massage, and cosmetic services—for men, the gentleman's facial cleanses the countenance while accentuating the monocle.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Owners Jacqueline and Andrea oversee the team of stylists at Misano Salon and Spa who fashion male and female hair using Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil products. Consultations kick off appointments before staffers cut or color hair to suit the client’s lifestyle or secret lifestyle. Additional hair services include natural hair extensions designed to blend undetectably with existing locks and frizz-smoothing keratin treatments.
Behind their nail service stations, technicians pamper hands with skin-softening paraffin dips and treat feet with therapeutic soaks inside a whirlpool footbath before polishing nails with hues from OPI and CND. Meanwhile, a menu of waxing services banishes unwanted hair from faces and bodies.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dimitry Likterev, the staff at Absolute Health Clinic harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. Low-light lasers break down adipose tissue, releasing disintegrated lipids into the body where they can then be absorbed by the lymphatic system and expelled through the body?s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure?s potency.
Tension and worry creep through the body, elbowing into sleep, pinching at joints, and generally making life unpleasant. As harbingers of that larger monster, stress, they are formidable foes?but they prove no match for the staff of The Chicago Stress Relief Center, Inc. Led by founder Dr. Howard K. Weissman, the team develops personalized plans to help clients to manage mental and physical ailments. Concerns can be washed away with water and heat during flotation-tank and infrared-sauna sessions that afford clients solitary peace and quiet. Further aid takes the form of massage and art therapy, yoga sessions, and unlimited rolls of bubble wrap ready to be popped.
