REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Kevin on Feb 11
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!

Great massage with Robert! The space was very soothing, and he really listened to my concerns and addressed them. Will definitely go back!

Wonderful experience!

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.

My massage was Robert (Total Body Solutions) was an absolute delight! I was having some back pain and it completely disappeared after the session. He is very skilled at removing knots and releasing pressure points. I highly recommend his services and would definitively be back soon.

Robert Ertel is definitely one of the best masseurs on my list. I work a lot in the office, and work out hard on exercise machines. Without telling him of my troubled, aching spots, he seemed to know where they were and, combined with his knowledge of the various pressure points of the muscles, he would work his magic, released all the sore knots in my muscles using his great deep tissue massage skills, which totally relaxed my whole body. I will go back to him for massages repeatedly, for sure.

I went to Robert with a very sore back and hip. Roberts massage allowed my tight muscles to relax and release. This morning I greeted the day pain free!

Robert did an awesome job getting the knots out of my back and stretching tight areas.

I love my weekly massages. Whether I am traveling (which I do often for work) and getting one at a spa or using a massage on demand app, or at home in Chicago, I need my weekly massages to keep the stress and bay and the aches & pains away. Robert is the highlight of my week, when I am home. He is knowledgeable, listens and seems intuitive with his touch. I owned a spa for 10 years and if I had known him then, I would have wanted him to have worked with us, as I had only the best technicians and "healers" working there. I can not recommend him highly enough!
