I don't remember my masseuse's name, but she was AMAZING. I have never had such a deep, through massage. She knows her stuff too! She explained everything she was doing and told me why my muscles reacted and/or got sore the way they did. She was very knowledgeable and answered ALL my questions through the massage. My favorite part of the massage was when she moved my shoulder blade and massaged the muscles underneath! It was so weird, but felt great.
I am officially spoiled now and definitely plan on a repeat experience to Spa Forever!
I absolutely LOVE getting massages from Paula. I actually followed her to Spa Forever fro another salon, she is just great!! Always professional, mixes up her technique, doesn't talk the whole time, and has 'magic hands' as I like to say;-) As far as Spa Forever goes, I think it was also great. Very zen like, pretty atmosphere. I will definitely go back, and I highly recommend Paula for a massage.
I found Spaforever by chance. I received an email from Pretty City and saw that they had some Feb discounts. Looked at the spa's offerings and thought Spa forever would be a good choice. I was SO right! It was easy to get to and parking is very easy. I was greeted politely and introduced to my aesthetician who led me to the room. The details as you enter upon the spa rooms was nice. It was very calming and relaxing and it smelled great. I was not sure if it was vanilla but definitely pleasing to the smell. I had the forever facial and it was great! We spoke for a few minutes on what was going on with my skin and she suggested a gentle peel and she explained everything without talking too much and let me relax. The neck, shoulder and arm massage was great. Don't change a thing!! I did not want to leave. My face felt great and I was SO relaxed. I will definitely be back. I booked a massage for my next visit and I hope it is as great as the facial.
Short answer: this is my favorite spa in Chicago. I've been to several other spas and have dealt with rude staff and terrible message service. Spa Forever is the complete opposite; the staff and therapists are really great. I usually go 1-2 times per month and always leave feeling like a million bucks. I highly recommend the Swedish or deep tissue massage with Michelle...she's amazing.
Michele did a very nice job. At the end of my session, she described the amount of tension I had in my back and recommended some at-home exercises to relieve some of that. I will take her recommendations as well as see her on a regular basis to help prevent any more knots forming in my back! Thanks Michele!
