My neck and shoulders were so tight so I booked this massage. Two days later I felt so much better! Day one I was very sore, but in a good way! Hands down will come back over and over! I have been looking for some one like this for massage in Chicago and have not found anyone till today! Totally a must go to if you need massage therapy!

Maeva knows what she is doing! Excellent knowledge of the body and muscles. The trigger point massage relieved my lower back tightness - first time that has ever happened!

Maeva was extremely detailed and wonderful at explaining her process. Massages can be intimidating especially being so close to someone you just met, but I felt very comfortable. I'm looking forward to her tackling additional problems in my body in the near future!

I loved that Maeva fulfilled the duties of a true “massage-therapist”. It was one of the most painful massages I’ve ever had but two days later I feel like brand new and pain free! I appreciated how she walked me through what she was doing and why. Coming from a medical background it helped me to understand why it hurt and how I can fix it going forward. I wasn’t looking for a Swedish feel good massage (which I’m sure she can provide as well), I was looking for true therapy to help me feel better. I appreciated her guidance and recommendations. I will definitely be going back!!

Maeva is beyond skilled. She is highly educated in trigger point therapy(and with other techniques, this is just what I always get done) and will customize your massage to your needs, every single time. In addition, she provides a calming demeanor that helps to bring relaxation to a form of massage(trigger point therapy) that, at times, can be a somewhat uncomfortable, depending on how tight you might be. To note, she will always adjust her technique and pressure to meet your level of comfort. Within the times of COVID, Maeva has gone above and beyond to ensure all the necessary precautions are taken. Upon arrival she was wearing a mask, had on a new apron and no other clients were in the space. The room was clean and ready to go. During the massage she was willing to wear gloves if preferred, however used hand sanitizer, either way, prior to any body work. She continued to wear a face mask the entire time, as did I. I continue to have exceptional body work done by Maeva and literally will not go to anyone else.

I’m feeling so much better after a 90 min session. Maeva knows muscles and body mechanics incredibly well. I can’t wait to schedule follow up appointments.
