When attempted at home, body wraps run afoul of cumbersome application processes, mummy-fearing neighbors, and subdivision covenants outlawing human-sized cocoons. Get wrapped up in professional care with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a one-hour herbal body wrap (a $75 value) at Amber Spa in Bucktown.
Designed to retexture bodies with a smooth, youthful glow, Amber Spa’s natural body wrap utilizes herbs to soothe and rejuvenate skin. Aestheticians massage bodies with a special brush to stimulate circulation before warmed oil and granulated Chinese herbs are applied to exfoliate the skin. Clients are then swaddled in a thermal wrap for 20 minutes and may emerge from their temporary confinement with smoother skin, reduced stress levels, and newly limber forewings. Finally, one of G.M. Collin’s thirst-quenching moisturizers is applied to seal in smoothness.
Amber Spa invites relaxation with its friendly staff of experienced aestheticians and its tranquil décor. Swathed in warm hues, the spa treats eyes to vibrant red walls and buttery leather furnishings.
Amber Spa's owner Ewa Tomic and a team of certified and licensed skin- and bodycare specialists beautify clients with a range of facials, waxing services, and body treatments. Sleek leather furniture fills the tranquil Bucktown spa, which is warmly lit by fabric-covered lamps, a vintage chandelier, and sunlight pouring in through stained glass created by local artist Marianna Grzegorczyk. The walls are set ablaze with red paint, bedecked in paintings by local artist Rich Greene and lined with a complete selection of G.M. Collin skincare products, which can treat acne, reverse the effects of aging, and remove stubborn milk mustaches.
