Day spas provide a refuge from the rigors of everyday life, which is why they are frequented by David Hasselhoff lookalikes. Enjoy a reprieve from a stressful day with today's Groupon: for $75, you get an 80-minute lemongrass-mimosa body scrub at Body Rituals Boutique Spa, located in The Westin on Michigan Avenue (a $195 value).
The experienced tension tamers at Body Rituals reinvigorate world-weary soul sacks in an intimate setting with a kaleidoscope of spa treatments and Naturopathica products. During 80-minute body scrubs, wellness wizards use zesty lemongrass and bamboo foaming scrubs to exfoliate epiderms and gently slough away calloused, flaky skin and poorly applied tattoos. Next, a moisturizing full-body massage teases muscle tension into oblivion and hydrates human hides with a bourbon-vanilla lotion, milked from drunken vanilla beans. The cozy spa houses two treatment rooms and an arsenal of professional massage therapists to shower bone and muscle houses with personalized attention. As a convenient bonus, the spa stays open seven days a week and keeps its doors unhinged until 8 p.m. on weekdays.
Body Rituals Boutique Spa
Body Rituals Boutique Spa infuses its menu of soothing facials, massages, mani-pedis, waxing, and body treatments with plant essences to rejuvenate skin and energize chakras. Naturopathica products approach the skin with a holistic spirit, and manicurists prevent jealous mouths from gnawing on pampered nails by employing peace-loving SpaRituals nail products, which are eco-friendly and vegan. Located inside The Westin on Michigan Avenue, the spa provides a tranquil escape for both hotel guests and pedestrians seeking respite from the swinging bags and incessant limericks of frantic power-shoppers.
