Like a potato, if the human body is not properly mashed and moisturized, it will never be used for anything more than a science-project battery. Make sure your body is properly fluffed and buttered with today's soothing Groupon: for $47, you get your choice of either a one-hour Thai floor massage or a one-hour Thai ceremony massage at Chi Spa in Wilton Manors, plus a $20 gift certificate to use toward your next massage (up to a $105 total value).
Candle-lit hallways, soothing music, and elegant décor welcome achy bone vehicles to Chi Spa's tranquil escape, where a dedicated staff of experienced kneaders smooth out knots and coddle the soul. Their sentient hands will treat troubled muscles to the flowing movements of a Thai floor massage, where listless limbs are bent into therapeutic poses to balance energy flow. Conducted on a soft floor mat, the Thai floor massage is also called “lazy man’s yoga” because of its therapist-assisted stretches and tendency to forget to put the seat down. Olfactory systems benefit from the Thai ceremony massage, wherein an aromatic array of Thai herb poultices are placed on specific aches and pains to relieve anxiety, depression, and trauma. For more than 200 years, this fragrant practice has been used to address chronic problems such as back pain and tendinitis. Sensitive areas that wince at the pawing of coarse human hands will delight in this gentle treatment designed for your most tender muscles.
Eye-catching, imported Thai artwork lends to Chi Spa's Far East authenticity and luxurious atmosphere. Some of the staff even trained at Wat Pho in Bangkok, Thailand, furthering the genuine experience, as experienced massage therapists impress each muscle with affable affect and convenient hours.

- Make sure to schedule your massage on a day when you don’t have much to do. When I got back to SFGN offices I was glad it was Friday. I was almost too relaxed to work. – A. Sebastian Fortino, South Florida Gay News
- I've had massage treatments in various modalities around the world, and found this experience satisfying, mostly because you don't feel like a number there. – shekate, Citysearch
Chi Spa’s more than 20 licensed massage therapists are experts in their craft and can easily pull massage techniques from Western and Eastern modalities and seamlessly integrate them into a single session designed to address their clients' problem areas. The therapists owe their versatility to their training in Thai massage at the Wat Po Buddhist Temple in Bangkok, Thailand. The look and feel of the distinctive Thai relaxation retreats followed them back to Chi Spa, which is decorated with elaborate woodcuts and statues imported from Thailand. The treatment rooms preserve a modern feel; some even have private showers in which guests can rinse off before or after their treatments. In addition to familiar modalities such as Swedish and hot stone, therapists can knead muscles with barefoot ashiatsu massage or the 200-year-old Thai Ceremony massage, originally intended to relax returning warriors who’d carried their horses home.
