For the therapists at Kingston Reflexology, the feet are like the telephones of the body: they have a direct line to virtually every organ. During signature reflexology sessions, this team administers pressure to strategic points on the feet to trigger wellness and relaxation throughout the organs and limbs. They also utilize Western techniques such as custom Swedish and deep-tissue massage to melt shoulder and back tension resulting from poor posture or mistaking a boulder for a beanbag chair. All these methods of relaxation unfold in Kingston Reflexology's private treatment rooms, which can hold anywhere from one person to a private party.
When it first opened its doors in 2000, the European Foot and Ankle Clinic set out to keep feet healthy by combining conventional medical treatments and holistic practices. Over the past 12 years, this unique approach to treatment has garnered a following, and the clinic gradually expanded to 9 locations throughout Chicago. At each location, multilingual doctors in podiatric medicine treat issues ranging from heel pain to toenail fungus to chronic stubbed toes caused by regularly throwing childlike temper tantrums.
Holistic Therapeutic Spa is so dedicated to relaxation that they've created a space where clients can relax before they even begin their relaxing treatments. The space?known as the meditation room?serves as a soothing area where clients can mentally ready themselves for massage-therapy sessions. During these sessions, clients can relinquish stress and chronic muscle aches via the trained kneads of deep-tissue, Swedish, hot-stone, and sports massage, the last of which is accompanied by a whispering announcer to keep score.
