Favin’s Five Favorite Health and Beauty Deals in Chicago

BY: Favin the Maven | Feb 19, 2014

Chicago spa treatments can teach you something new (unless you already know which element your face represents) or let you partake in a familiar pastime, like curling up under a blanket in a big comfy chair.

Smell Otherworldly After Aromatherapy at Heavenly Massage

One of my favorite smells in the world is fresh-baked brownies, but an aromatherapy massage with lavender is a close second. Get scented oils incorporated into your Swedish or deep-tissue treatment, then head to a private shower or steam room to decompress even more.

Learn Your Skin Type’s Element at Indira Salon and Spa

Is your face an air, a water, a fire, or an earth? If you don’t know, the aestheticians at Indira will tell you during your Elemental facial, which includes a custom-blended mask made from Aveda botanical products. (As an admitted sunbathing addict, I’m guessing I’m a fire.)

Soothe Your Soles at Fit Foot Massage

I would hang out at Fit Foot Massage all the time if I could—your only task is to snuggle under blankets in gigantic comfy chairs. Massage therapists take it from there, using ancient Chinese reflexology techniques to activate pressure points in the feet that can relieve tension throughout the body.

Laser Hair Reduction at Chicago Skin Solutions

Shaving takes up time that I’d rather spend…not shaving. At Chicago Skin Solutions, each laser hair-reduction treatment only takes 15–30 minutes to clear hair from bikini lines, underarms, and other areas, with results that can last well into summer. If that’s ever a thing again.

Romance and Mimosas at Spa Vargas Wellness

There are few things more romantic than getting a massage from your partner, but one of them is getting a massage with your partner. Therapists at Spa Vargas Wellness treat couples to a foot massage and body massage, as well as facials and mimosas, with this dreamy package.
