Seasonal menus are a dime a dozen these days. But seasonal spa treatments?
You’re still reading, aren’t you?
At Ener, Bucktown’s newest spa, the menu is good enough to eat — but it’s best to let your epidermis do the work.
Treatments are divvied into categories: Lunar (calm, hydrate), Solar (repair from the elements), Thermal (activate and renew), and Radiant (antiaging, regeneration).
Facial treatments change seasonally: Spring brings Éminence Organic Skin Care infused with strawberry, rhubarb, stonecrop, and blackberry. Summer will likely bring blueberries, apricot, and raspberries.
Mani/pedis take it to the next level. Technicians consult on Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, OPI, and Butter London polishes. Deep-moisturizing paraffin treatments, cushy booths, and heated neck pads come standard.
Waxing and threading are also available. Order up.
