Ashiatsu, a barefoot massage which originated in the Philippines and is commonly practiced in Asia, is making its Chicago debut at Waldorf Astoria Spa (formerly The Elysian Spa). The treatment is great for those who seek deep tissue massages. With expertly placed pressure and aromatic essential oils, this massage helps with circulation, posture, and relaxation. Ashiatsu treatments are available for 60 minutes ($210) or 90 minutes ($290).
Pro tip, budget some time before and after your treatment to and enjoy the wonderful amenities at the Waldorf Astoria Spa like the steam room and sauna. It'll make for a better massage and who doesn't love an afternoon at the spa?
