Our muscles help us tackle daily tasks such as sauntering, using utensils, and preventing our bones from unionizing and demanding we eat eggshells until they've had their fill of calcium. Reward hardworking tissues and tendons with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a 60-minute massage at Ability HealthCare in Oak Park (a $70 value).
Dr. Julie Klarich and Dr. Meghan Zack-Bell have more than 35 years of combined heath-care experience. They and their dedicated staff provide thorough, healing massage treatments targeted to a patient's individual needs. Choose from five massage options: hot stone, sports, deep tissue, Swedish, or a custom massage. A hot stone massage employs smooth, heated stones to soothe away tension. Olympic-level leap froggers can unwind from a tough training regime with a sports massage. Surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle grain pressure in a deep tissue massage, or melt muscles like beeswax and awaken a slumbering lymphatic system with a Swedish massage. Your treatment can also be customized to your health condition, lifestyle, and pinball-related stress level.
Ability HealthCare's massage room is bathed in a pleasant spring green hue accented by soothing, bee-free floral arrangements. Ability HealthCare also houses an herbal remedy and wellness shop, and Groupon users are entitled to 15% off any product on the day of their massage. The office offers convenient late evening hours on Mondays and Wednesdays, making it easy to schedule a massage around business lunches and NASA launches.
Although there aren't many online reviews, Ability HealthCare has testimonials from satisfied clients:

Since Dr. Julie Klarich has 35 years of field experience, she's had time to develop a repertoire that draws from chiropractic, naprapathy, Chinese medicine, and massage treatments. Under her direction, the licensed massage therapists at Ability HealthCare soothe physical aches, mental stress, and funny bones that aren't in the mood to laugh with a variety of therapeutic and relaxing bodywork techniques. Dr. Klarich's staff also targets digestive complaints, headaches, and menopause with a holistic approach that relies on herbal remedies, which clients can purchase from the in-house store.
