Massages focus equal attention on the mind, body, and soul, visualizing them as the three sides of an equilateral triangle or the three sides of a coin. Apply geometry to real life with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage at Reflections of Health Integrative Care Center, with locations in Bedford Park and on West Wacker Drive in Chicago (a $95 value). This Groupon is valid for a Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, or prenatal massage.
The seasoned staff members at Reflections of Health Integrative Care Center mix traditional and holistic practices to customize each therapeutic massage according to clients' individual health needs. With help from oils and lotions, the Swedish massage gently kneads muscles with rolling hand strokes, working to alleviate aches and improve circulation more easily than hiring a cheetah to deliver newspapers. Alternatively, a deep-tissue massage tackles deeply buried, chronic stress areas resulting from ailments such as misalignment or injuries. During the deep-tissue session, clients are encouraged to openly communicate with therapists via speech or warning flares to ensure comfort. Active bodies and sore basketballs can bolster their athletic performance with a sports massage, which may increase flexibility while preventing wounds and aiding in recovery. Soothing strokes designed specifically for expectant mothers assuage joint pain and digestive issues during prenatal massages.
