Although it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at Luxurious Essentials Travel Day Spa in Oak Park (a $75 value).
Though known primarily as a mobile massage dispenser that travels to area homes and offices, Luxurious Essentials' network of professional relaxation-wranglers also pamper clients from the tranquil confines of its home office. During the Swedish massage, a therapist disentangles knotted backs with long, flowing strokes, supple kneads, and occasional entreaties to stop hitting yourself. As customers melt under the gentle barrage of hands and doll feet, they can watch their trains of thought vanish into a mist of aromatic candles, soothing music, and tranquil decorative flourishes.
As the owner of Luxurious Essentials, Demetria understands the plight of busy professionals. She and her team of therapists do their best to work around hectic schedules with services ranging from a succinct 10-minute chair massage to an extravagant 90 minutes atop a warm massage table. Her unique style of Swedish massage utilizes traditional light strokes as well as deep stretching of the limbs to help to alleviate joint pain. Therapists lubricate each massage with a liberal application of olive oil, which soaks into skin without the potential allergens or glow-in-the-dark side effects found with many moisturizers.
The soothing scents of lavender and soft, earthy tones greet clients as they enter the spa. In private rooms, guests unwind from busy lives while listening to the strains of Asian music and ambient noise such as running water, chirping birds, and the angry protests from stress as therapists massage it away.
