At Head to Toe, a full-service beauty salon and spa, pulchritude professionals cosset weary patrons within a relaxing oasis featuring a range of hair, nail, and waxing treatments that utilize high-end salon products and stress-melting massages and facials. During pampering manicure and pedicure services, the salon’s digit doctors knead tightness out of phalanges and extremities before coating keratin in OPI, Essie, and Duri lacquers to revitalize fingers and prepare feet for trips to the beach or for sandal-model interviews. Stylists reduce head tension with relaxing shampoos and conditioners before basic cut and style sessions and after double-process color treatments.
Using OPI and essie products, Lona's licensed professionals will strengthen aesthetic attributes while chasing off both burdens and parrots on achy shoulders. Opt for the manicure and hot-stone pedicure, and a friendly aestheticians will burnish your nails, furnish them with a classy sheen, and massage smooth, hot stones over sore feet. The daringly durable no-chip manicure is the perfect choice for cobblers, mechanics, puppeteers, and others whose finger-centric finesse leads to occasional wear and tear. Those weary of finger flaunting can shift the focus spineward. A deep-tissue massage realigns deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues, relieving pain and restoring ease of movement. The hot-stone massage heats and relaxes muscles, rendering them easily manipulated and vulnerable to peer pressure.
A good massage lets you soak away worries that have lodged themselves in the nooks of your joints and the crooks of your connective tissues—providing more effective pain relief than you would get from leeches, even the ones that are certified masseuses. Today's Groupon gets you a one-hour Swedish massage at Gordon Salon & Spa for $40 (an $85 value). There are three Gordon Salons in the Chicagoland area, but only the Lakeview location offers massage services. So it's safe to assume your session will involve a trip to 3336 North Clark St.
The massage therapists at Body & Soul Organic Massage Studio use a toolkit’s worth of techniques and accessories to augment their soothing massage techniques and ease clients’ aches and pains. The hot-stone service uses the penetrating heat of warmed stones to loosen muscle tension on targeted surfaces. Organic lotions keep massages body-safe and environmentally friendly. Aromatherapy using essential oils eases bodily stress by soothing senses and assuring clients that they still, in fact, have a nose. On top of all that, the studio’s baseline massage services are far from basic and range from deep-tissue sessions that uproot buried knots to reflexology treatments that manipulate trigger points to banish tension.
Many people spend years of training to specialize in one specific trade. Licensed aesthetician Gala has specialized training in 10 areas of aesthetics, including certification in myriad laser treatments. Relying on top products from Janssen Organics and glo minerals, she applies her knowledge to a range of services that beautify bodies inside and out. Her ultrasonic-cavitation treatments help melt stubborn fat cells while contouring the body and reducing the appearance of cellulite. These treatments also use radiofrequency to tighten sagging skin, increase collagen production, and tune in to a reading of War of the Worlds. Gala can massage newly slimmed forms with deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques to reduce pain and improve range of motion. Skin gets a second chance with Gala’s green peel, a safe peeling method that can renew aging and sun-damaged faces.
