Pamper Yourself

It’s an absurdly cold Chicago day. Frazzled from too much shopping and slightly hungover due to superfluous amounts of eggnog, you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Or the stress of your job. Or the emotional backlash of that nasty breakup. Maybe all of the above. What to do? Well, if you’re like me, you’ll head over to Tirra Salon and Spa in River North and indulge yourself in a blissful and much deserved hour-long Swedish massage.

Perhaps you like your personal space and massages aren’t your thing, so you opt instead for a mani/pedi at Bucktown’s Spa La La. However, as relaxing as spa and salon treatments are, your stress level will likely skyrocket if you spend exorbitant amounts of money on pampering yourself… Enter, which launched in July 2010, is a discount website akin to Expedia or Priceline, but in the wonderful world of salons and spas. Spaciety is easy to navigate, and, as stated on the website, “Your perfect treatment is literally just clicks away!” You simply pick your desired treatment, (the options range from hair care and waxing to massages and fitness classes), select the date and time, and then book said appointment at a facility that is offering your requested treatment. is currently working with over 50 reputable salons and spas throughout various Chicago neighborhoods, so you are guaranteed to find a spa location and treatment that fits your specifications.

After co-founder Andrew Dennis conceived the idea for Spaciety, he spoke with salon and spa owners in order to ensure his site would benefit both consumers and the spas themselves. If not offered on and booked through, these appointments would go unused. By offering the treatments at discounted rates, the spas are able to fill these appointments and the consumer gets a great deal! And no worries, charges no booking fees and does not require membership to use it.
