I had a great experience at Renee Day Spa. I had an Saturday appointment for a deep tissue massage followed by a facial.
My therapist name was Isabela she did a great job of working out some really big knots and trying to loosen my insanely tight shoulders and neck. She used just the right amount of pressure, and knew when she had worked a spot as much as I could handle it. She was pretty much silent during the massage, which I appreciated, and she was polite and friendly before and afterward. After massage I got the facial with her .She was fantastic! Her touch was light and I was completely relaxed. I was so zoned out that I think I dozed off a few times. She gave a great, light neck, shoulder, arm, and hand massage. It was just what I needed after the long week of work. We'll see how my skin looks over the next few days, but I left looking pretty rosy and fresh, even with the extractions. I also appreciated that she didn't try to push a single product on me, she just made recommendations for a regimen to follow.
I'll definitely go back and see her again !!!
My daughter (11 yrs old) and I were in Chicago on a mother-daughter weekend. We wanted to splurge during our weekend so I found Renee Day Spa online and made appointments for both of us to have our first facials ever. The spa location was perfect, right on Michigan Ave. among all of the great shopping. The facial was so relaxing and my skin looks and feels great.even a week later. The staff was awesome, very professional and knowledgeable. There were no high pressure sales pitches when it came to spa products and I especially appreciated the fact that they treated my young daughter with respect and gave her the same excellent service that they would have given an adult. We will be back to take advantage of an entire spa day the next time we are in Chicago.
Pros: Great location, knowledgeable staff, relaxing experience.
Cons: The space is cozy, I loved it but it may not be for everyone.
You still haven't been to Renee Day Spa? Do something nice for yourself and check it out. My favorites are the massages and facials---I have tried many spas in the city and this is the best. Try Mirek or Renata for a deep tissue massage or Anna for a facial that cleans and firms your face-you will come out glowing! My sister comes from New York swears that Jenny gives the best pedicure you can get! The owner Renee will welcome you with a cup of tea and cookies...what more could you want? The spa has a European flavor and feel of a small luxury hotel. I've been going there since it opened and knew many of the staff from other spas. This spa is about you, your enjoyment and relaxation---it's a small gem on Michigan avenue. They also sell top shelf hard to find European products such as Dr. Temt anti-aging skin care from Austria.
