The economy, the weather, your significant other, taxes, cholesterol, bad waiters, late buses, Glenn Beck...the list of things that can cause stress is pretty much endless. Which is why Exhale Spa is offering a free stress-relief series on Mondays in April, featuring guided meditation. The practice has been shown to lower blood pressure, boost the immune system and generally chill you out. Just ask Sting.
The half-hour sessions begin on April 6 at 6 p.m. (and run each subsequent week); reserve a spot by calling the spa at (312) 753-6500.
If you're really looking to get relaxed, Exhale is also offering a 20-minute express acupuncture session for $20. That's definitely a good deal, though we wonder if you really want someone rushing to stick needles in you.
