‘Tis the Season to be Jolly, So Spa La La

‘Tis the season for parties, gift-giving - and stress. Whether party prepping, present hunting or escaping the hustle and bustle, the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Chicago has the perfect experience to satisfy that holiday wish list.

From the 12 Days of Christmas Manicure to a Holiday Harmony Massage, the Spa turns the hectic holidays into “Happy ‘Spa’lidays.”

Twelve Day of Christmas Manicure

The Spa polishes up those fingers with the Twelve Day of Christmas manicure that will last from holiday party to party.

  On the first day of Christmas, sit back and enjoy a “shellac” manicure
  On the fifth day of Christmas, the manicure still looks fabulous
  On the ninth day of Christmas, the shellac manicure still shines and shimmers
  On the twelfth day of Christmas, schedule your next manicure for the season


Magical Mistletoe Massage for Two

It’s supposed to be the most magical time of the year, but sometimes the hustle and bustle of the holiday season can take the sparkle out of a relationship. Reconnect and rekindle the romance – and the holiday spirit –with the Magical Mistletoe Massage for Two and enjoy a special gift for each other with our compliments.

Select an enhancement service for a loved one such as reflexology foot massage, a rejuvenating scalp treatment, or back exfoliation to extend the experience.

Forget about the decorating, the wrapping, the kids or the in-laws while enjoying Swedish or deep tissue strokes with intoxicating aromatherapy oils. Afterwards, savour the experience in the Spa’s relaxation lounge with flutes of Champagne served with mistletoe to help recapture the holiday magic.

Sugar Plum Manicure and Pedicure

Visions of sugar plums will dance in heads with this holiday treat for hands and feet. The seasonal-inspired treatment features an exfoliating sugar scrub, a sugar plum revitalising masque and stimulating massage techniques with sugar plum souffle cream. The experience culminates with a Poinsettia cocktail.

Holiday Aroma Blend Massage

This signature treatment infuses cinnamon – the scent of the season – to revive the holiday spirit. Holiday stress is diminished with this massage that uses acupressure and light touch massage techniques combined with an intoxicating blend of cinnamon aroma and steam inhalation therapies.

Face for All Seasons

The gift that gives all year long is the Spa’s Face for All Seasons offer. Purchase three facials and receive a complimentary fourth, allowing for a seasonal beauty regimen. The facials bring out natural beauty year round with skin care products that hydrate, renew and reduce signs of aging.
