Chi-Town Moms Need a Spa Break at these Top Chicago Spas
Hey, Chicago moms, humongous cheers to you! You’re the model of selflessness, the peacemaker with the little ones, the jack-of-all-trades for everything-for-everyone. You (very much) deserve a break! We can’t stress this enough: Take some self-care time. So schedule yourself a solo visit to one of these top relaxation spots in your beloved city. (Or better yet, invite your favorite fellow mamas along.) Here are three of the top Chicago spas for wellness.
At this award-winning spa, customization is key. Treat any stress- or skincare-related concerns with tailored services like the Waldorf Signature Massage and Dermalinfusion Facial. (We also suggest the Healing Relaxation package, which promotes luxe offerings like the exfoliating Ohana gingergrass bamboo scrub, wild cherry rice buff and massage with wild lime oil….heavenly, right?) Spend the entire day at this urban oasis in the Gold Coast district with enticements like a pool, whirlpool, eucalyptus steam room, dry sauna and relaxation lounge.
And if spa services aren’t necessarily your thing, opt for time in the health club, where you’ll discover cardio and strength training equipment or group-slash-personal Pilates, Gyrotonic and aqua classes.
Moms, find the spa at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago within the city’s Water Tower Place. The ambience here reflects the soothing waters of surrounding Lake Michigan, heightened by a luxurious feel. The spa focuses on renewal and the enhancement of senses (with treatment names like the Indulgent Drench Body Experience and Indulgent Drench Body Massage, what can you expect?). What we can’t get enough of is the spa’s “enhancements” menu, comprising add-on services that vary from the Moroccanoil Scalp Treatment to Dry Skin Brushing to Lifestage Anti-Aging Facial Boosters.
Tip: Frequent spa-goers may want to consider the perks a membership provides.
Decadent is what comes to mind when we think of the menu—the spa menu, that is—at this wellness sanctuary in downtown Chicago’s River North culinary district. Here you’ll be tempted by sumptuous services like the 50-minute Amber Escape (which uses elements such as amber, myrrh and nectar); the Pink Himalayan Stone Therapy massage; and the Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Facial. Also on the menu: the Citrus Mimosa Manicure & Pedicure and the Royal Rose Manicure & Pedicure. Spa newbies may want to try the Simple Serenity package, which highlights classic treatments like Swedish massage, European facial and mani/pedi.
Moms will also appreciate the spa’s Himalayan salt saunas and chromatherapy showers!
