Without routine massages, muscles can stiffen from neglect, preventing people from simple, everyday acts such as doing laundry, jogging, or somersaulting to work. Stay limber with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute massage at Bodies in Balance, with locations in Bartlett and Northbrook (up to a $100 value). Massage options include prenatal, deep tissue, myofascial release, lymphatic, sports, Swedish, and therapeutic medical.
Bodies in Balance’s team of massage therapists melts away muscle tension and de-stresses bodies with a catalogue of massage techniques. During the Swedish massage, strain exterminators deploy long, gliding strokes along epidermal canvases, helping to increase blood circulation and boost energy levels. During the myofascial-release massage, therapists apply pressure to connective tissue, designed to relax muscles and relieve chronic pain. The sports massage deploys deep strokes to increase flexibility and range of motion while addressing common sports-related ailments, such as tennis elbow or getting hit in the back with a hockey puck.
Bodies in Balance
Headed by Dr. Stein, Bodies in Balance brings a multi-disciplinary approach to pain treatment and overall health. Laboratory testing reveals potential allergies or missing nutrients, while orthotics and chiropractic adjustments counter and correct imbalances in the spine. Doctors also energize muscles with low-level lasers or electronic stimulation, or employ ultrasonic waves to stimulate fluid movement in the tissue. Dr. Stein and his team use these services to treat the pain that results from repetitive use, workplace accidents, or tickle fights with tractors.
