I think splurging is something we should all do regularly: Enjoy three chocolates vs. the occasional one, buy a new lipstick color just for the heck of it or treat yourself to ultimate decadence by booking a spa treatment. I recently decided on mySpa at the Fairmont Hotel Chicago, Millennium Park.
mySpa is located in the basement of the Fairmont. I took in the home items that are available for sale in the lobby, and upon arrival, I was greeted with a warm welcome.
I was treated to the Signature Massage. The technician spent a few minutes asking me what style of massage I wanted and what spots on my body needed extra tender loving care. She focused on making sure that the amount of pressure was what I needed, checking in with me throughout the massage.
I took my time in the sauna post spa and decided to shave my legs just so I could stay longer in the tranquility and atmosphere that soothed me before busting back out into bustling downtown.
