Intense relaxation is always a good thing, unless your hand is on the throttle of a B-52 Stratofortress with an armed Special Weapons Emergency Separation System. Joyously surround yourself with a triad of relaxing services with today's deal to Asili Chi Salon & Spa, a West Loop Aveda concept salon. For $65, you get a package that includes a 30-minute elemental nature massage ($50), a shampoo and styling ($55), and a 30-minute pure focus facial ($45), giving this Groupon a $150 total value. Gift one to your current kernel to keep the kettle popping, or reward yourself with a well-deserved unwinding (or two).
Your multi-service visit starts with the elemental nature massage, which was pioneered by Captain Planet's crew to utilize elements of nature (Earth, water, fire, air, and infinity). This customized experience will be tailored to your needs. Experience a variety of techniques, such as Swedish, acupressure, and reflexology, depending on your desired results and which bodily zone you've decided to store your stress (recommended: the bustle). A skilled technician will then comb through every hair strand, leaving a glistening glow in his or her hand wake. The accompanying styling involves a blow-dry and hair redo that will bend and shape your bob in ways once thought only feasible in Photoshop. Revivification reaches its inevitable completion with a pure focus facial, which includes a face and neck massage and your choice of skin exfoliation to leave you with a rejuvenated and unstressed mug. Use your youthful façade to trick Geoffrey the Giraffe into allowing you access to his carefully guarded toy dungeon.
Asili’s owner, Kim Shackelford, designed the two-level loft space with the goal of creating a stylish, socially responsible salon that transforms into a giant, mechanical hummingbird. A multicultural staff specializing in treating all ethnicities provides smart cuts and color on the first floor, while massage therapists work their magic downstairs. After your appointment, rejuvenate with a cup of herbal tea and nosh on some appetizers. Vibrant walls and a calming vibe make the salon a place to relax as you undergo your transformation, after which the retractable ceiling will gracefully fold back and release you like a mechanical hummingbird from the cocoon.
- Daniel not only gives THE best massages, he also makes you feel truly pampered. He has the BEST touch and knows exactly what needs work. The Aveda oil he used was awesome and the temperature of the room was perfect. – planetj, Citysearch
