Muscles are the body’s finickiest components, requiring constant kneading to keep them from seceding from the skeleton and forming a blob mob. Keep brawn and bone peacefully cohabitating with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour massage at HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab (a $70 value). Choose from 12 Chicagoland locations.
HealthSource's human mechanics keep bodies in line through therapeutic massage, chiropractic care, and injury rehabilitation. During a 60-minute knead session, the licensed massage therapist manipulates distressed tendons with a dual focus on relaxation and pain relief with a minor in Russian literature. Though treating pain and tension in the shoulders and back is a common emphasis, the full-body massage is tailored to the state of each patient's musculature. Soothing strokes target specific areas strained during daily life or hyperextended during the funky chicken.

Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
