Without massage, tension, knots, and vestigial dorsal fins would forever stay lodged on human backs. Rid yourself of rogue back matter with today's Groupon: for $36, you get a one-hour clinical massage at Health First Wellness Center in Schaumburg (a $72 value).
Under the supervision of chiropractic physicians Dr. Naveed Elahi and Dr. Vishva M. Desai, the team at Health First Wellness Center ropes together multiple body-molding disciplines to align spines and soothe muscles. After a complimentary chiropractic consultation, licensed clinical massage therapist Crystal Abbate will initiate an hour-long massage and back-inspired slam poetry session. Crystal specializes in relaxation, Swedish, trigger point, and deep-tissue massage, and may utilize any of these different muscle-kneading traditions to combat sinew tightness, unevenly distributed tension, and imbedded television theme song lyrics. Clinical massage is designed to specifically target wound-up spots and treat physical conditions, while a licensed physician supervises the proceedings to offer medical input and hilarious chiropractic anecdotes from their childhood.
