Enough to wear anyone down, the hustle and bustle of the Windy City requires some self-care. It's why we recommend a spa day with your partner. Booking couples massages in Chicago and getting treatments can help you relax and rekindle your romance.

Whether you're a visitor or resident of the Windy City, indulge in some TLC at a day spa in Chicago. Many high-end properties and hotels offer an in-house spa with unique treatments that speak to its style. Plus, you don't always need to spend the night to access the luxurious menu of offerings, often including deep tissue massages to hot stone pedicures and facials. For those looking for a truly local experience, Chicago is also home to many independent day spas with packages and itineraries for couples. If you need a breather with your best friend, these are the top spots for a spa day or a quick-but-special couples massage in Chicago.
