Patch Picks: Day Spas
Need a break? Why not take a trip to the spa and enjoy some stress relief.
How does that Chicago song go? “Everybody needs a little time away.”
Ain’t it the truth! Even if it’s only an hour spent in a quiet space with some calming music and candles, the difference can be amazing.
Maybe you want to do a spa day to celebrate the fact that it is Tuesday. Or the break might let you enjoy a relaxing afternoon with your significant other. Possibly, you just want a break from those lovely children running around the living room.
Whatever the reason; whether you do a full day or an hour, a trip to the spa is oh so lovely.
Located on East Ogden Avenue, this spa looks pretty nondescript from the outside. Yet inside you can find a salt cave crafted with thousands of pounds of Himalayan salt. The salt is said to be good for relieving respiratory, circulatory and skin aliments—along with stress. A friend and her husband recently visited the spot for a relaxing afternoon and the husband was so stress free he fell asleep. The spa also offers other treatments including facials, massages, body wraps and alternative therapies.
Not far from the Timeless Spa is Mario Tricoci. Walk inside and it looks like a typical salon, but behind the door lies another world with dim lighting, mood music and pure relaxation. You can sip water infused with fruit while you wait, enjoy a sauna or just luxuriate in the cozy robes. Of course you can get any of the standard treatments from waxing to massages. Enjoying a massage? You can choose from a number of choices including the signature, Swedish, pregnancy or hot stone.
Clothing stores usually stick to selling clothes, but Coldwater Creek also has spas in a few select locations, including Naperville. The spa is tucked away in the Main Street Promenade where, after dropping some cash at the store, shoppers can find some respite from reality. Whether choosing a pomegranate salt glow, or a mango-ginger sugar polish, the experience has to be delectable. Of course, the gold standard of spa treatments are on the menu from massages to facials, pedis and manis.
Planning to lunch with the ladies? Why not stop at Zano, refresh and recharge and you are ready for the world. Located right downtown, parking is a snap in the nearby parking garage. Then head inside for the ambiance. Whether you have a teen wanting her first spa experience or your beau could use some pampering, the spa offers packages for both. Girls night out? They have you covered with special packages for spa parties. The standard fare of massages, facials and manicures and pedicures are offered here.
If you live in the southern part of Naperville, why travel far for treatments. There are too many things to do in the day, and driving adds to the aggravation. Drive right on over to Frank Gironda for your special treatment. As with most day spas they also offer massages, waxing, facials and hand and foot treatments. Who wouldn’t want some rejuvenating bliss—one of the spa packages offered. Enjoy your spa day and don’t forget the gourmet lunch.
