You love going to the spa, but for some, the thought of stripping down to nothing in front of a complete stranger still makes people nervous. Rest assured, the spa is the one place on earth where you can be 100% comfortable and able to let all of your inhibitions go. Some say the best way to learn how to swim is to just dive in, so that’s what we’re going to do here. We’ve placed a few of our West Coast/Chicago Spa Week $50 treatments on the naked scale and rated them from Modest Molly (1) to Naked Nelly (5), measuring the average of how naked spa-goers usually get. If a 5 sounds intimidating, just remember: there are always paper panties.

50 Min Acai Berry Body Scrub and Wrap (Naked Level: 4) With this treatment after your therapist scrubs you down and rids your body of dead skin and toxins, you’re wrapped up to let the ingredients finish off the task. WELL Spa at the Platinum Hotel, 702.365.5000

Toning Synergie Massage for Cellulite (Naked Level: 3) – A few minutes of courage will work wonders for how you’ll look after the fact. Using a Dynatronics vacuum machine this treatment smooths out cellulite, as it stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage. All Star Lake Spa, 425.462.2960

45 Min Spiced Apple Cider Pedi (Naked Level: 1) – This treatment is not very naked at all. You’ll have to show a little leg while you get your feet moisturized in an invigorating whirlpool bath. Oregon’s Grand SalonSpa, 503.644.2800

50 Min Citrus Lavender Salt Scrub (Naked Scale: 5) – A salt scrub treatment only works one way – naked! You have to take it all off so that your therapist can shave off all the dead skin cells to reveal your clear layer of skin underneath. Arizona Grand Resort & Spa, 602.431.6485

50 Min Aromatherapy Body Polish (Naked Scale: 4) – To get your body to its full glowing potential, you have to be brave and let your therapist work your body from head to toe.  The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale, 480.513.5145

45 Min Package: 30 Min Vichy Shower, with 15 Min Scalp Massage (Naked Scale: 5) – Vichy shower is considered one of most freeing spa treatments. You lie down on flat spa bed, and allow water from a shower head to cleanse your skin. Beach Massage and Day Spa, 310.322.2333

Laser Hair Removal of the Brazilian Bikini (Naked Scale: 3) – You know the drill. Of course this fares high on our scale as you’ll have to get naked in the most private place. Lunaris Medspa & Weight Loss Center, 310.371.9900

50 min Kohler Bath (Naked Scale: 5) – This is one of the most bare treatments you can find. We guess you can call this the cousin of the Vichy shower, the Kohler Waters Spa, 630.323.7674

50 Min Deep Tissue or Swedish Massage (Naked Scale: 4) – A milder route to go for those of you who rather leave a little on. Let your therapist work the kinks out leaving your bottom half covered. Chocolate For Your Body an AVEDA Family Salon Spa, 312.226.0777

65 Min Customized Signature Facial & Brow Wax, Including Décolleté, Neck, Arms and Hand Massage (Naked Scale: 1) – The only body part that has to be free of any coverage is your face.
