Robert Ertel, LMT, CPT, CES

 I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Illinois, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer with NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) with a specialization in Corrective Exercise. Having over 10 years of experience in massage, 20+ years in personal fitness and over 900 hours of education, I have an extensive knowledge of musculo-skeletal anatomy and the Human Movement System. 

By focusing on optimal posture, muscle health and joint movement, I can provide stress reduction and pain relief to those sore, overworked areas. Each session is tailored to meet your specific needs and long term goals. This is accomplished by using a combination of techniques and being sensitive to your body and the muscular issues I find as I work. I treat the source of the problems, not just the symptoms. I finish each session by giving you self care guidance to continue the work that began on the table. 

For those who want to explore Corrective Exercise, I am able to design a massage and exercise program for long term health and fitness goals. 

I look forward to meeting you! Be well.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Fitness services

by Ben on Nov 03
Robert is incredibly talented and professional. He knows how to find and release knots and tension, and I always leave his table feeling renewed. Highly recommend!

Robert clearly knows what he's doing and was very responsive to my needs and really helped with the trouble spots. His technique is skilled, experienced, and nurturing.

I have been going to Robert Ertel for massage therapy for several years. I have arthritis and restricted range of motion in several joints. My massage and stretch sessions have been relaxing but so much more than that. After treatment I feel like I can move better and with less pain. Robert is great and I'm so glad I found him!

Robert is an expert in anatomy and physiology, highly skilled in identifying and releasing body tension. Very sensitive to the level of comfort and pressure needed and tolerated. I would highly recommend a massage with Robert.

Robert is the best massage therapist I have ever been too and I have very high expectations. I’ve been going to Robert now for 9 years now and he is exceptionally knowledgeable in his field to provide the most appropriate massage catered to every individual’s needs. I highly recommend Robert to everyone. You will not be disappointed.

I've been going to Robert for almost 3 years. He is professional and his service is amazing. Robert listens to what your needs are and then adapts the massage to your specific requests. I've seen him for my knee, hip, back and shoulder but now I go on a regular basis as part of my overall health. He's a wonderful person. I highly recommend!

Robert is amazing! He knows how to target muscles and pressure points that have been giving me some discomfort. I feel much better since getting a couple of massages. Thank you!

Robert is very professional and makes you feel at ease during your session. He listened to my areas of concern before my massage, and he followed through with focusing on those areas. He also checked-in with me throughout my massage to make sure I was comfortable. He has excellent technigue and is obviously well-trained. I would highly recommend him as a massage therapist.
