Deep tissue means deep relief

 I have been practicing massage now for 19 years.  I  received 120 hours of training from Body Therapy Center in Palo Alto Ca., 400 hours at De Anza College, Cupertino Ca.  and most recently an additional 600 hours through  New School of Massage Bodywork & Healing  in Chicago IL. 

I am trained in the "classics": Swedish, Sports and Deep Tissue massage. However, I tend to focus more on Clinical Deep Tissue Massage , Trigger Point Release Therapy and "Deep Swedish" which for me tends to mean a slow moving, deeply relaxing Swedish massage that may encounter some trigger point release work.

My experience includes 2.5 years for Chiropractic Sports Center, Mountain View Ca and a 3 year contract at both Apple Inc. ( Cupertino Ca,)  and its subsidiary FileMaker (Santa Clara, Ca).  I maintained a prosperous independent business in Palo Alto Ca and  Mountain View Ca., a short stint at a spa and a high level private gym before restarting my practice once again here, in Chicago.

While most of my massages are integrative in nature (providing different styles to fit the individual body's needs) I am best known for my Trigger Point Therapy work. I strive to maintain sessions that are detail oriented, that meet your needs thoroughly, and make your healing experience as calm and enjoyable as possible.

Maeve always hits all the right spots. She’s extremely skilled and the best I’ve found for a deep tissue massage.

Not one negative thing to say about Maeva. When you’re after pain management, what you want is an extremely knowledgeable professional with the ability to make you feel comfortable and in control during your session, and that’s what you get from Sorely Kneaded. Hurts SO good, can’t wait for my next visit.
