Although we don't go too often, spas can be great getaways. Yesterday we picked up a copy of Conscious Choice while drinking our coffee and found a few articles on natural spa treatments. As customers start to seek out chemical-free treatments, green salons and spas are springing up around the city...
Green Salons: Conscious Choice lists a few green day spas in the Chicago area. These are the ones we found interesting...
• Allyu is a new Chicago day spa, recently opened by Tamara Wills. The space was made with reclaimed barnwood, cork floors, field stone, and clay plaster. Natural products are used in spa treatments.
• Mojo in Wicker Park is an all-natural nail spa. Owner Amanda Kezios and her assistants make the beauty products sold in the store by hand. The spa menu includes manicures, pedicures, and facials.
Acupuncture Facials: The alternative offered by Conscious Choice circumvents traditional spas altogether, using acupuncture in place of a standard facial or massage.
• Shen Shen Health and Harmony provides cosmetic acupuncture, as well as massage treatments and herbal medicine.
