The Spa at The Four Seasons

The Four Seasons earns its way onto this list due to their Ancient Healing Massage treatment. This massage combines hot ancient stones and essential oils for an extremely relaxing experience. Another treatment setting this spa apart is the Vintage Bourbon Massage. This features a unique scrub made of Kentucky bourbon and brown sugar. The Four Seasons Hotel is located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood.

If you are looking for a relaxing afternoon with all the benefits of a health club, look no further than the Waldorf Astoria. All visitors are welcome to visit the lap pool, steam room, barber, sauna, state-of-the-art fitness center, an outdoor terrace, and of course, world-class massage therapists. The spa radiates relaxation with its chic black and white palette and velvet decor. The spa also features a Silk Peel. This is a non-invasive exfoliation that will leave even the driest skin from Chicago’s winter feeling like silk.

Chuan Spa at The Langham Chicago

Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Chuan Spa is a true urban sanctuary. Chuan means “flowing water” and is meant to reflect its rejuvenating benefits. Before your day of treatments, take advantage of the Chuan Bathing Ritual. This is a sensory and aromatic experience featuring a series of saunas and steam rooms to prepare the body for the benefits of your treatment.

Luxury Living Chicago’s expert tip: Available upon request is the Chuan Spirit Suite. This includes a Healing Liquid Pool and private Oriental steam room for a truly restorative experience. The Chuan is located in Chicago’s popular River North neighborhood.
