Despite their known benefits, cleansing foods aren’t your bag. (You like calories. You really do.)
Reap the rewards without ingesting an ounce with Spa Space’s green tea, ginger, and seaweed body wrap.
Start with a full-body citrus herbal exfoliation to hydrate and slough off dead skin cells. After removing excess scrub with hot towels, your massage therapist applies Epicuren’s green tea-seaweed-ginger product and wraps you in Mylar, which heats you up. Get a head and neck massage while you sweat it out.
After a deep moisturizing, you have the option to add a 30-minute massage. Do it: It’ll help the circulation and detoxification process — and feel damn good. (Deep tissue is your best bet, but all styles are available.)
Then, if you fancy, head to the steam shower.
Spa Space, 161 North Canal Street, between Lake and Randolph Streets (312-466-9585 or spaspace.com), $105-$155.
