Very relaxing place. Best for a quiet nap. Bring a spare pair of socks & an eye mask! I walked in with a sore throat & it cleared up while there. And rewarded myself with a Polish buffet next door afterwards. Pierogis!

Go during a weekday and you may have the whole cave to yourself! Such a great place to hang out in winter.

Wear comfortable clothing. Its theraputic value is great especially if you have upper respitory issues. Have some mushroom soup next door at the restaurant afterwards. I try to go at once a month.

This is a very relaxing setting, I wish I could do it a couple of times a week. The staff is really accommodating and friendly. I've been here many times and it's always been a great experience. The Polish buffet at the Jolly Inn is an added bonus if you are at Galos around dinner time.

From Our Editors

The air is tinged with the smell and taste of salt. Stalactites of salt dangle from the ceiling, and the floor crunches as the group walks through inches of rock salt. After taking a seat, soft music plays and the lights dim while the group relaxes and breathes in the healing salt air. This routine plays out several times a day inside Galos Caves' artificial sea microclimate, which earned it a nod in Time magazine. Using 100% Black Sea salt, the cave's air is laden with the negative ions of salt, which are thought to treat respiratory diseases, digestive tract problems, and dermatological blemishes. From asthma to rheumatic disease, the salt can help the body alleviate the more troubling symptoms of myriad conditions, and the relaxed atmosphere helps remove stress. Kids are welcome in the serene environment, and the staff gives children toys such as shovels, Frisbees, rakes, and plastic french fries to play with in the crystals.

Chicago Day Spa Guide

Chicago is known for its Midwestern charm and pleasant lakeside location, but that doesn't mean that residents don't occasionally need a chance to escape the fast pace and relax. A visit to a Chicago day spa can provide a respite from the concrete jungle and give people a chance to relax. Sometimes, a massage or a facial is enough to revive the spirit.

The constant traffic and fast pace of the daily grind can be overwhelming, but the many day spas in Chicago offer places for residents to escape, even if it is only during a short break from work. At the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel, the professional estheticians specialize in cutting-edge treatments that are designed to rejuvenate the body and the mind. Each staff member goes out of his or her way to ensure that each customer feels at home, which creates an indulgent experience and comfortable atmosphere.

Many Chicago residents walk around the city, and the physical stress from carrying heavy briefcases or bags can cause sore muscles and tension. A massage can get to the core of the problem, going beyond the surface tension to solve the root cause. For value-conscious people, the prices at Crystal's Massage are a bargain. Although the exterior is nondescript, the interior is warm and inviting, and the owner is known for being friendly and accommodating. The menu includes everything from trigger point therapy to Swedish massage.

In Chicago's constantly moving professional environment, residents are required to look their best. Regular manicures and pedicures keep people looking great. At Beauty Nails, the technicians take their time to ensure that each nail is done perfectly. The salon offers reasonable prices and takes walk-in appointments, making it an ideal place for a quick break from work.

Whether customers are looking for a lunchtime manicure or a deep-tissue massage, a visit to a Chicago day spa offers something for every budget.
