The skin is the first line of defense against the elements, much like a computer screen keeps in the hamsters powering it. Get soft like a hamster with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an aroma nourishing body treatment at Distinction Salon & Spa (a $75 value).
Distinction was named McHenry County Magazine's best day spa in 2010 and its employees are friendly, trained, and they show teamwork as they make clients feel beautiful with salon and spa services. An aroma nourishing body treatment uses a mix of exfoliation, exotic essential oils, and African shea butter to hydrate and smooth the skin. The 60-minute treatment can be customized and will also leave your skin silkier than a soft, stuffed bear. Guests can lay down in the treatment rooms, which have candles and a comfortable bed that makes the room feel as calm as taking a nap on a dancing sheep's back while it's doing the Dougie.
Distinction Salon & Spa
Distinction Salon & Spa pampers clients in 2,200 square feet of spa space, outfitted with five treatment rooms, lockers, and a pedicure suite. Driven by a commitment to care for employees, patrons, and the community, the spa edifies its staff with an extensive in-house training and certification program, which in turn benefits patrons who receive top-notch services. Haircare services occur in an elegant crimson-walled space, and spa treatments—such as purifying body wraps, hot-stone and deep-tissue massages, and soothing facial treatments—take place in luxurious, candlelit rooms outfitted with gold-hued walls and an automated shushing system to silence clumsy pin droppers.
