The only luxury spa in Chicago to offer a Purva Karma, Four Hand Synchronized Massage is a doozy of a spa--The Peninsula. Get it: Paradise is achieved with an advanced combination of multiple stretching and rolling movements and long deep strokes using ESPA body oils enriched with Ayurvedic herbal concentrates, Bhringaraji, Ashwaganda, or Brahmi. Polarity balancing movements ground and distress, and the mind switches off as two therapists work in synchronized harmony. But don't expect the same prices as the usual Saturday afternoon therapists, 2 hours will set you back $450.
