LSF & The Latin School Represent at U.S. Squash HS Nationals!

Last Thursday, The Latin School of Chicago Boy’s and Girl’s Squash Team headed to Hartford, Connecticut to participate in the 2019 U.S. Squash High School Nationals where they took on the best squash teams from around the country over the weekend.  Having participated in last year’s national’s tournament in Philadelphia, led by coach Luis Sanchez, the team was looking to build on their tournament run as the #1 seed in division 5 for the co-ed team and #7 in division 6 for the girls’ team. Great job! To find out more on how the teams did, check in with LSF’s very own Squash Pro and Coach, Luis Sanchez!

CBD Massage Coming Soon to the Spa@IC

The next time you book an appointment for a massage, you may want to consider incorporating CBD hemp oil. CBD (cannabidiol) is latest, proven health and wellness essential that has several benefits when incorporate into your regular massage and fitness routines:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce chronic pain
  • Improve skin health
  • Alleviate anxiety and stress

Worried about the origin of CBD? Don’t worry, our CBD massage oils do not contain THC (the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis). A massage already comes with its own set of health benefits. The application of firm touch in the right places has been shown to have positive effects on muscle and joint pain, stress, anxiety, headaches, digestive disorders and even sleep disorders. But adding CBD oil into the mix can enhance such benefits when applied appropriately.

CBD is coming soon to the Spa@IC. Contact if you’re interested or want to learn more.
