In addition to the humiliation of being buried by dogs and dug up by science teachers, skeletons are ornery because they lack the musculature necessary to get massaged. Avoid taking your skin for granted with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour CHI-Well signature massage at CHI-ssential Wellness (an $80 value). The serene, knot-defying space is conveniently located inside the FX You Salon and Spa.
Sink into the warm, womb-like confines of the massage bed as an expert massage therapist gets to work unknotting your back and shoulders with the skillful attentiveness of a boy scout mastering his rope-art badge. Therapist Alptamise Hailey-Hinds brings more than 17 years of experience in bodywork to her customers, and she credits both her time as a medical professional and having overcome her own illnesses for deepening her understanding of massage's healing potential. To preserve the client and therapist's focus during the treatment, CHI-ssential asks that patrons do not bring their cell phones, ensuring that cellular signals don't cross and reverse the effects of relaxation waves.
Discovering the joy of massage is more warm and comforting than slurping chicken broth amidst the gentle hum of daytime soap operas on a childhood sick day. Zone out, get unkinked, or console yourself after a particularly rough title bout on Boxing Day. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Under its former name, ALH Therapeutic Massage, CHI-ssential Wellness was featured as a success story in the Magazine of Summerlin. Both Citysearchers and Insider Pagers give FX You Salon and Spa, home of CHI-ssential Wellness, a healthy four stars.
