Mystic Fountain Wellness Center's holistic healers restore bodies with recuperative treatments designed to stimulate natural healing processes, not replace them. These treatments might include the strategic placement of tiny adhesive magnets or the application of soft herb- and aloe-soaked bandages, both of which oust stored stress and toxins. The Himalayan salt room also treats chronic conditions, in particular respiratory issues such as sinus trouble. With its low temperature relative to a typical sauna, the infrared sauna is particularly appealing to clients with a low tolerance for heat or snowmen with an extraordinarily high tolerance for heat.
The licensed massage therapists at A&A Therapeutic Massage Clinic customize their strokes to deliver massages that make a difference. With complimentary consultations, the therapists determine which muscles, tendons, and medieval humors need attention in order to maximize their client's therapy time. They call on a range of clinical techniques to help break down muscle knots and stimulate lymph flow, but the experts also understand the importance of luxury—each massage can be made into a pampering experience with sense-kindling aromatherapy scents.
Licensed massage therapist John Slipke helps allay aches with neuromuscular therapy, a medical-massage technique that aims to ease muscle pain, bursitis, and injury-related discomfort. At the start of each appointment, Slipke chats with the client to pinpoint probable causes of tenderness, which may include sciatica, plantar fasciitis, or repeatedly watching Old Yeller. He may also identify pain triggers by analyzing the body's posture. Throughout the session, the client shares feedback, noting when pressure alleviates aches and crackling when attached to a guitar amplifier. After the kneading massage, Slipke crafts a custom wellness plan-including a pain-prevention regimen-with the clinic's internist or chiropractor. Robledo Medical & Wellness Center does not offer prenatal massages.
The licensed massage therapists at VRC Massage & Wellness ease chronic pain and stress massage modalities ranging from Swedish and hot stone approaches to Hawaiian lomilomi techniques, which aim to stimulate the lymphatic and respiratory systems.
The nationally accredited European Massage Therapy School transforms students who give great back rubs into licensed massage therapists with all the tools they need for a lifelong career. At their Skokie location, the school offers a variety of massages at their student clinic, where advanced students perform soothing treatments under the watchful eye of an experienced, licensed massage therapist.
TeddyRose Hair Salon and Day Spa's experienced digit decorators embellish keratins with vibrant hues and fortifying, chip-resistant polishes. During the 45-minute deluxe pedicure, swells of mint and eucalyptus splash across piggies before doters tame cuticles and buff away calluses. A trim transforms toenails into smooth curves or profiles of favorite talk-show hosts, and the exfoliating sea-salt scrub banishes dead skin from arches and ankles. Balmy paraffin then quenches parched skin while pamperers massage feet and gams for 10 minutes. A frosting of hue and a chip-resistant topcoat cap off the treatment, leaving toes as brilliant and tempting as a chocolate sculpture of Einstein.
