The back leads a lonely, neglected life, with legs doing all the heavy lifting, heads doing all the heavy thinking, and hands refusing to scratch the back without a 12-inch stick and sequin gloves. Look your opposite side square in the eyes with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute massage at Ability HealthCare in Oak Park (a $70 value). This Groupon is also good for 15% off any product in the store when visiting for the massage.
Ability Healthcare's Dr. Julie Klarich and her friendly staff boast more than 50 years of combined experience in the natural treatment of a host of conditions. Choose from her loaded quiver of massage specialties, including sports, deep tissue, Swedish, or a custom concoction of each. During the hot-stone massage, Dr. Klarich induces relaxation by applying ancient heated rocks, which are also used by many paleontologists' children as makeshift baseballs. Each variety of kneadiness chases away aches, pains, and clinging back monkeys while fronts relax deeply in the center's warm and soothing environment. Ability HealthCare accommodates busy schedules with open hours until 10 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, as well as until 6 p.m. on Saturday.
Since Dr. Julie Klarich has 35 years of field experience, she's had time to develop a repertoire that draws from chiropractic, naprapathy, Chinese medicine, and massage treatments. Under her direction, the licensed massage therapists at Ability HealthCare soothe physical aches, mental stress, and funny bones that aren't in the mood to laugh with a variety of therapeutic and relaxing bodywork techniques. Dr. Klarich's staff also targets digestive complaints, headaches, and menopause with a holistic approach that relies on herbal remedies, which clients can purchase from the in-house store.
