Massage for the active individual who suffers discomfort in the physical body do to over use, injury or misalignment.  Massage sessions are a combination of muscle and joint testing to discern the patterns of the body, then treating those patterns with myoskeletal alignment techniques and muscle therapy which includes trigger point release, friction and resisted stretching.


Grace completed her Massage therapy training with Moraine Valley College and received an Illinois License of Massage Therapy (LMT). She continued to increase her knowledge of massage by completing Ben Benjamins Orthopedic Certification as well as studying Myoskeletal Alignment Technique.  The combination of these techniques offers the best solution to resolve physical and mental discomforts.  She believes in firm pressure that eases into tight, damaged and sore muscles to find release without agitation.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Yoga services

by Richard on Sep 12
I liked Grace's broad overall expertise and desire to give and get feedback, so that specific issues can be worked on. I already am taller then people i used to think I was shorter then; which is a result of much improved posture or that i am relaxed and floating off the ground..

Ms. Manning is thorough and explains the effects of her therapeutic methods. Setting and mood is relaxing and very conducive to her work.

I did not really have a dislike. next time I will try not to be so sore going into the session. that way I will be more attentive to any change I feel.
