Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • J was very knowledgable and professional. I felt better immediately after working with him.

    I'm training for a marathon and went to J because I want to be sure I remain limber and resilient after some lengthy runs. J not only knew what he was doing but made a point of educating me as well. After my first appointment, I find myself sitting and standing more erect with less effort. Highly recommended.

  • I wish I met him before I had to retire from gymnastics. 2 chiropractors and 3 physical therapists say there's nothing to be done. He touches a muscle, that makes my thoracis? vertebrae and a rib go back into position. I did my first walkover in 4 years the day after without any pain. Got my passion back and might be coaching soon. Not just a massage therapist... but I don't know how to describe it. Thank you so much

    Experienced two things on my visit to Chicago. My first snow and amazing bodywork. I didn't know massage could do "that". My fiance thinks I got surgery because I'm much better than when I left. When I get that promotion, I'll be knocking on your door J. Thanks so much!!!

    I love getting work done with J. He’s helpful and knowledgeable and always keeps a positive attitude about my well being

    I think the J is for Jesus. He welcomed me and with two questions, gently placed his hands and helped me with something that was years old. He is the only therapist my husband hasn't questioned the value of. I just went home with results. J respected my body that I thought was broken and taught me about my own strength. J does more than work on you, J works with you. I hope all the right people come your way as long as you still have an opening for me.

    J is always professional and always listens to the problems and issues I am having so he can focus his work when on the table. I always leave feeling so much better than when I came in and the work he does always sticks around for awhile rather than just feeling relaxed right after and then having the soreness or pain return the next day.

J Birks is the best kept secret in massage therapy. His knowledge and skill levels are truly amazing, and he is genuinely invested in his clients' wellness. I explain it this way: if you want cucumber water and whale sounds, go anywhere else. If you want someone who can zero in on that one tiny muscle you didn't know existed but has been making your life brutal, go see J. I'm from a family of chronic back problems and I played a full contact sport; there has never been an injury or discomfort issue he couldn't fix. Highly, highly recommend, despite the fact that his current space feels like a hippie massage speakeasy. (Hey, a little wood paneling never hurt anybody.)

Business response:

Thank you. I will continue to strive to improve the best methods to support the community. Back to enhancing that zeroing. Hope to see you soon.

I did not care for the G5. The space has an odor of those air freshioner things in taxis and is very shabby and depressing. Jay is very knowledgeable and skilled. I hope that he relocates to a better space

Business response:

Thank you for your feedback. This is a humble space and it sometimes smells of moxa or incense from other treatments . We do not claim to be a spa. I apologize that the G5 did not suit your needs. But communication can always lead to improvement.
