Best Massage – I have to admit, I wasn't sure about this new spa that opened in our neighborhood, but my husband bought me a massage, so I went to use it with hope that I wouldn't return home with another mediocre massage. I opted for the deep tissue and luckily was introduced to Will Courtney. I have had many a massage in my life, and I can honestly say Will was by far the best experience I have ever had! I think my back wore him out! He was kind, extremely thorough and very strong. I felt the work for days after. I have sent many of my friends to see him- as deep tissue work is expensive- I don't often get to him. But, save your money and go to Continuum and see Will! You won't be disappointed! Simply amazing. PS- the staff is really great at Continuum as well- very friendly.
great massage and staff – I went with my friend that is pregnant for a baby shower weekend in Chicago. The trip to Continuum Studio was the highlight of the weekend. My Swedish massage was relaxing and even after the flight home I feel great! My friend had the pre-natal massage and said she will be back as much as she can before the baby comes!
We both recommend this spa to anyone looking for an urban mini-break.
Great Massage – I had one of the best massages I have ever received here. I felt great for weeks following my treatment, and would recommend this place to anyone.
Epilogue to review – I wrote a previous review which was negative based on my experience with an esthetician. The manager called me and he was very accomodating and CALM - not confrontational like before. It made up for the negative experience and although I wouldn't go there again, my review is based on only one uprofessional person. He and the rest of the people I've dealt with, have been nothing but professional. I would recommend others to try it.
Most Amazing Bodywork Ever!!! – I have been to several massage therapists over the years, and having Tourette?s Syndrome, it's been difficult to find someone who actually listens to my needs. Will Courtney was amazing!!! He took the time to make me feel very comfortable and listened to my needs as well as my daily routine so he could find the best place to focus and begin. The entire experience was great and I felt very welcome and comfortable. Their knowledge and professionalism put me at ease and by the end of my 90 minutes I felt like I had released some of my 34 years of tension. I highly recommend Continuum, and specifically Will Courtney, to anyone out there who is in need of 'serious' bodywork that is appropriate and specifically tailored!
Want the skin you had ten years ago? – This salon is fantastic. There are no gimmicks here--just pricey, yet super effective skin treatments and skin care lines. If skin care works as well as the products and the services here, then it is well worth the expense. I have had peels and facials that have restored evenness to my complexion and gotten rid of redness. The sun damage that I accumulated from decades of winter sports has been diminished. I particularly like two products: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant works with my regular facial cleanser to buff away surface debris, and Skin Ceuticals Phyto Corrective Gel calms and sooths my sensitive skin. The owner of the salon, Johnnie is professional, friendly and accommodating; this is man who takes your skin care and bodywork seriously. I have been seen by two of the aestheticians--Traci and Asha. Traci performed a series of peels on my skin that have really improved its overall quality and texture. When I went to see Asha it was for the oxygenating facial that at first turned my face a brilliant red. The reddness subsided within five hours and left my skin even and glowing. Asha followed up that evening with a phone call to make sure the effects were not lingering. I am very impressed with the staff, service and results that I experienced a the Continuum and plan to return monthly.
Massage Heaven – If i could give more stars I would. My sister bought me a prenatal massage when I was pregnant and it was amazing. I just went back for my first after pregnancy massage. Now I won't go anywhere else for my massages.
I had some complications at the very end of my pregnancy with major back pain and needed to go in for an emergency massage and they fit me in when they were completely booked! The personal service is also something that I have never gotten at any of the higher end salons down town. Liz called me to just check on me after I gave birth to my daughter since she knew I was having a hard time of it! David and Christine are totally magic with their hands. If you want a place that will make you feel at home and want great service and world class treatments, Continuum is the place to go. I would be hard pressed to find a better Spa/Studio in Chicago
Hooked on Continuum – Last year, when I had a spafinder gift certificate, I searched on line for a place to use it, hopefully somewhere near my home. I found Continuum Studio--and I'm hooked. First of all, it's nice to go to a place 'where everybody knows your name'--but the services are awesome. The value far exceeds pricey spas--where, by the way, I would have to pay alot more to park. I can't recommend Continuum highly enough, and I've steered many people to it.
The Best Facials! – From the moment I walked into Continuum Spa, I was approached with a genuine smile. The ambiance is so relaxing and chic. The decor is trendy, the staff is by far the friendliest I've encountered compared to other spas in the city and suburbs. I was treated like royalty, and the facial was out of this world. It was soothing, and so relaxing I fell asleep. I have been to many posh/upscale spas where they rush and Continuum treat their clientele as VIP.
I went in as part of spa week for the 75 minute vitamin facial. No complaints about my service, it was nice, relaxing, and professional. I even recommended and scheduled the service for my husband. His facial lasted only 45 minutes. He didn't really care but I did so I called them to see what happened. They said the 75 minutes includes a before and after consultation - which is a load of . . . She said, "is this about the money? . . . Yhea, this is about the money. You want your money back." What a fool! It's the principal of it all - give everyone the same amount of time for their facial and use the full 75 minutes. Beware of this scam.
