Massage therapy is among the best ways to achieve relaxation, on a par with listening to actor Ed Harris chant in whale song. Sink into serenity with today’s Groupon: for $42, you get a 50-minute Swedish massage at Tiffani Kim Institute Medical Spa, located near the Chicago Avenue Brown Line CTA stop (an $85 value).
The expert staff at Tiffani Kim Institute Medical Spa adroitly eliminates kinks and stress with Swedish massages. The modality necessitates that staffers vacillate among kneading, rolling, and pressing motions to calm aching muscles and jump-start circulation before swaddling feet in hot towels.
Treatments take place in a medical-spa space carefully designed to ease stressed-out psyches and lull twitchy bodies into blissful torpor. Exposed brick and hardwood floors evoke domestic relaxation, and soothing earth tones and comfy chairs relax waiting-room-bound guests and take the sting out of mistaking new-patient forms for unusually relevant crosswords.
