The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Certified reflexologist James Markgraf has been applying health-promoting acupressure to feet for 17 years. James has studied at three different institutes of reflexology and now brings his mastery of the method to his own private practice in Schaumburg. Poring over feet as if he's exploring the skull of a newly discovered dinosaur, James enters into a silent dialogue with the body, testing for problems that might pervade the patient's entire system.
Various wellness services are offered under the same roof at Wellocity Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Physical therapy places an emphasis on facilitating mobility by using specialized techniques to increase joints' range of motion, strengthen weakened muscles, or improve coordination and balance. Acupuncture sessions aim to restore a sense of balance by clearing energy-blocking elements, such as balloon animals clinging to clients' backs. The center even offers physician-supervised weight-loss programs, which use a combination of nutritional counseling and recommended exercise regimens to help individuals meet their goals.
Navrung Expression founder Smita Shah believes that stress is the root cause of many health issues, and that meditation can help resolve it. As a cosmetologist and alternative healing practitioner, she leads MindYog seminars, which aim to teach pupils how to communicate with their bodies through meditation. The sessions aim to relieve bodies of daily stress in order to resolve health issues. She is also a henna tatooist who has been practicing her art for more than 35 years, which is a long time for one person but a drop in the ocean when compared to the history of centuries-old henna tattooing.
Though feet get top billing at Cozy Feet Spa, the massage therapists here actually attend to the whole body through reflexology, massage, and acupressure services. Sessions (which range from 30 minutes to 2 hours in length) incorporate full-body treatments: reflexology targets pressure points in the feet that are believed to relieve tension throughout the body, and upper body and back massage incorporates acupressure and deep-tissue techniques.
