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 is awesome - extremely skilled and knowledgable. She works with you to target specific problem areas in addition to providing a super calming and well rounded massage. The space is immaculate and she's a true professional. Will definitely be back!

Elizabeth has been my massage therapist for several years now and is an absolute joy. As a person with fibromyalgia, I was seeking someone who understood the medical need of bodywork and was responsive to the subjective nature of chronic illnesses. From the very beginning, Elizabeth made me feel seen and heard in a way that isn't always a given. She checks in regularly and is very adaptive — I also have multiple chemical sensitivities and she is always intentional about creating an environment that respects that. She is lovely to chat with when I'm feeling up to it and also great at letting me snooze away while she works :) Highly recommended.
