Reimagined Spaces of Spa Space Chicago

By Spa Space By Spa Space | September 14, 2020

Let’s face it, times are tough. In the chaos of conforming to virtual schooling, reduced social interaction, and new demands on our time, it’s easy to forget to take time for yourself. But taking care of your wellbeing has never been more important. Almost 20 years ago, founder, Natalie Tessler envisioned creating a place that provided clinical and therapeutic services in a relaxing environment. Over the years, Spa Space Chicago has built a best in class reputation with winning awards and being designated the number one day spa in Chicago as well as building a friendly culture that keepsexpert practitioners and loyal clients and members coming back year after year. Located conveniently at the corner of Randolph and Canal, Spa Space Chicago can be a lunch time jaunt or a full day escape.


Today, a visit to Spa Space Chicago gives you a glimpse into the spas of the future. After undergoing a complete interior facelift during the quarantine of 2020, the spa now features brand new, gleaming non-porous surfaces, state of the art UV air purifying system, physical distanced relaxation spaces, extra time added to each service for thorough sanitation and single use product kits for technicians to eliminate cross contamination of products. Spa Space Chicago now has two entrances making contactless check in and check out more convenient. Now, members and clients receiving nail salon services can enter via Randolph Street directly into the recently renovated nail salon.

Spa Space is excited to have Old Town Med Spa join them in the west loop. Providing an array of medical spa services from laser hair removal, to botox and filler treatments, Drs. Nael Gharbi and Shazel Gharbi are among the top cosmetic surgeons in Chicago.


In addition to a refreshed facility and new medical spa services, Spa Space has recently launched a completely innovative menu concept. Less is more. For years, spas have relied on static menus that outline different techniques regardless of the unique talents and expertise of the therapists. Spa Space saw an opportunity and is the inspiration behind a new technology launching this fall. Each therapist can enter their profile information including their training, education, experience, and expertise in a transparent platform that clients and members can preview. Next the client enters their needs and preferences, also eliminating the need to repeat this at each booking. Then the technology matches a therapist to a client based on client preferences and therapist expertise. This new focus on dynamic personalization evolves how people will discover and experience spa while celebrating and embracing the vast array of services that expert practitioners in Chicago can utilize to perfectly treat clients. Spa Space owner, Ilana Alberico shared that, "Our next steps involve a technology solution that will bring the inspirational Spa Space Chicago experience to those outside of the west loop.”

Spa Space Chicago is a full-service destination day spa. From HydraFacial to nail services, Spa Space Chicago’s refreshed spaces and services make for a welcome moment of “me” time.
