It doesn't matter if spa-goers have been naughty or nice this year, as all will want a bit of coal this holiday season thanks to the new Japanese White Charcoal Massage ($250, 80 minutes) at The Spa at Four Seasons Chicago. Available starting Nov. 19, the treatment relies on Sort of Coal products and begins with a white charcoal detoxifying drink. After a back exfoliation with a blended scrub of white charcoal, sea salt, and rice bran oil, guests are treated to a full-body detox massage with acupressure and deep tissue techniques to help relax the body. Other holiday-inspired treatments include the Sugar Plum Manicure ($55) and Pedicure ($85) and the Magical Mistletoe Massage for Two ($295, 55 minutes; $385, 80 minutes). It's the perfect way to leave guests with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads.
