The staff at Satori Massage Spa harnesses the powers of unique muscle-mending techniques and massage styles to knead away stress and chronic body aches. The Swedish massage incorporates a systematic series of gentle strokes, circular pressure, Morse-code tapping, and straight-faced tickling performed by an experienced therapist, resulting in increased blood circulation and relaxation. The deep-tissue massage uses focused strokes to knead across muscle grains and break up knots dwelling in skin and connective tissue, releasing chronic tension developed from straining muscles during tissue-box-throwing competitions. Whichever one-hour session clients choose, they can let their muscles unwind and endorphins release as skilled hands precisely rub bodies and put on shadow-puppet shows.

A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.

After graduating from Midwestern University School of Medicine and completing a general surgery residency at St. John’s University Hospital, he became vice president of the medical staff at Lincoln Park Hospital. Since then, Dr. Kotis has loaded walls, mantles, and refrigerators with titles and honors, most notably a board certification from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery.
