What You'll Get
Massage was developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Achieve its soothing effects outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 75-minute package including massage, acupuncture, and an infrared-sauna session at Tilo Medical & Acupuncture on South Barrington Avenue (a $175 value).
Tilo Medical & Acupuncture's experienced staff provides a welcoming haven of healing that nourishes worn spirit sacks back to stunning satchels by incorporating Western diagnoses with medicinal therapies. Venture along the 75-minute journey of rejuvenation with a 20-minute infrared-sauna session intended to extract toxins and cause blood circulation to pump to the rhythm of "The Star-Spangled Banner." This is followed by another 20 minutes of bodywork and massage, which releases knots, soothes muscle tension, and unfurls accordion limbs. The final 35 minutes are devoted to the restorative needles of acupuncture, tailored to the specific needs of each relaxee, including targets like stress, sleep, and energy. Unlike dull darts wedged into a wall mattress, acupuncture activates pressure points to reduce fatigue, relieve anxiety, and restore energy balance.

About Tilo Medical and Acupuntcure
After graduating from the University of Buenos Aires Medical School, Dr. Miles Reid teamed with Aerin Alexander to co-found Tilo Medical and Acupuntcure. The practice reflects their shared interest in ancient Mexico's shamanistic traditions and healing arts. As a result, they and their staff provide integrative medicine treatments like acupuncture, bodywork, and herbal therapy. In addition to alleviating pain, one of the center's core missions is to help patients feel more comfortable in their bodies, primarily through advanced modalities such as Gyrotonic exercises and The Feldenkrais Method.
