Yes, National Relaxation Day is a real thing, and you can celebrate this Thursday, August 15th at Elysian Spa at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago with 20% off body treatments. If you're not familiar with body treatments, think essential oils, body butters, scrubs and wraps—it's basically a facial for your body. Popular treatments at the spa include the Healing Relaxation, Body Polish and Elysian Cleanse, ranging from $144 to $280 (down from $180 to $350). Call 312-646-1300 to book.
