If you're like me, the continuous cold temps have really taken a toll on your body. Whether it's from too much shoveling or too much shivering, a little relaxing and pampering sound pretty good right about now. So join me as I take a break from the polar vortex and escape into one of these lovely day spas for a much needed staycation….sigh, even if it's only for a few hours.

King Spa & Sauna
809 Civic Center Dr., Niles, 847-972-2540
For a spa experience like no other, a visit to the King Spa and Sauna is a must. This unique, Korean-inspired, 24 hours spa provides a family oriented well-being sauna and spa experience. Upon $30 entry, you'll receive a wristband, which everything is billed through, and a "uniform". Shoes are removed and men and women are separated into two different locker rooms. Here, you can shower, soak in soothing bathes of varying degrees and receive additional intense massage and scrub services (recommended, extra fee). But be warned, this area is completely open and completely clothes free. So if you are not comfortable in your birthday suit, then you will want to bypass this part of the experience. After, you put on the aforementioned scrub-like "uniform," and enter the coed area which has 9 different healing sauna rooms featuring various minerals that offer various healing benefits. Each is its own experience and you'll want to test drive them all. There is also an ice room to cool down and a main common area with a movie theatre, food court (authentic Korean food), board games, and plenty of comfy recliners to relax in. Upstairs there is a designated napping/sleeping area. You can literally spend the whole day here!
