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 $35, you get a one-hour Swedish massage (a $75 value), plus a 15-minute sample massage of your choice (a $10 value), at Chi Spa, located in Wilton Manors.
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 Swedish massage, which employs light to medium pressure in order to loosen knots and alleviate stress. The smooth, gliding strokes ease muscle tension and promote relaxation, easing overworked muscles and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, Swedish massage also relieves anxiety, depression, and trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from your ear by a street magician. After your kneading, select a 15-minute sampling of any of Chi Spa's many other techniques, including the Thai Floor massage, the Ashiatsu massage, and the deep tissue.
Eye-catching, imported Thai and Chinese artwork lend to Chi Spa's Far East authenticity and luxurious atmosphere. Some of staff even trained at Wat Pho in Bangkok, Thailand, furthering the genuine experience. The practiced massage therapists are also friendly and welcoming, impressing 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.
