Body Bliss's certified massage therapist, Laura Dillon, has been massaging tender physiques for the last two years, specializing in three different types of muscular manipulation. The Swedish massage kneads out kinks after hours of assembling Ikea skyscrapers. The deep-tissue massage delves into the fascia's utmost depths, rooting out the sources of pain and releasing the body's pent-up balrogs. Finally, a hot-stone massage loosens muscles, calms the mind, and settles the central nervous system with precisely positioned warm stones. Whatever finger-flavor you choose, Body Bliss continues the thousand-year tradition of using human touch to reduce anxiety and depression, improve concentration, and develop cutting-edge break-dancing moves.
Hydro Health Spa's certified colon therapists help eliminate toxins and ease digestive discomfort with a gentle colon-hydrotherapy treatment. During the private cleansing procedure a technician uses a closed-water system to flush digestive ductwork of harmful toxins, uncomfortable blockages, and stray road signs as relaxing music hums in the background. Following the treatment, patients often experience relief from constipation, increased energy, and improved circulation. This first refreshing session at Hydro Health Spa includes a complimentary infrared-sauna treatment and a postprocedure probiotic supplement to facilitate intestinal movement and incite envy from stalled amusement-park lines.

In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
