Hello! I am Elizabeth, a licensed Massage Therapist living in Chicago with over 12 years of experience practicing Massage Therapy and Bodywork. Originally from the Bay Area, I graduated from National Holistic Institute in San Francisco in 2008. My coursework included more than 700 hours of training, including intensive studies in Eastern and Western Philosophies for massage therapy and health education. In addition, I have taken separate specialty courses in Prenatal/Postnatal, Trigger Point Therapy, Craniosacral, Reflexology, Stretching and Joint Mobilization, and Hot Stone Therapy.


Previously, I have helped clients in a variety of wellness and fitness settings on the West Coast and across the Chicago area. I specialize in therapeutic massage, blending deep tissue, myofascial therapy, joint mobilization, and stretching. Always in tune to the signals from my clients, I use a slow and steady approach, making relaxation and balance the goal.


My integrative approach to bodywork utilizes massage modalities specific to the needs of each client, with an emphasis on communication and paying close attention to the body’s natural cues. I love to help clients build a healthy body awareness and reach their goals, whether that be reducing pain and tension, injury rehabilitation, or coping with emotional and mental stress. I believe the body has a natural ability to heal itself when treated with compassion and care.


My areas of expertise include: Deep Tissue, Myofascial Therapy, Swedish, Trigger Point Therapy, Prenatal/Postnatal, Lymphatic Drainage, Craniosacral, Reflexology, Stretching and Joint Mobilization, Sports, Oncology, Hot Stone Therapy, Energy Work, Acupressure, Shiatsu, and Thai Massage.

Elizabeth was great. This was my first appointment. She was friendly and clearly very knowledgeable. She explained things clearly, asked about my goals, and made recommendations based on this info. Definitely planning to return!

Elizabeth is THE BEST massage therapist I've ever had. Communicates very well and is sensitive to your individual needs, customizing the pressure & techniques used. The room has a great ambiance and is very relaxing. Elizabeth herself is a wonderful, kind person and you will be glad to know her!
