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

While not a conventional location, Robert was extremely aligned with my body's needs when I gave direction and I feel more relaxed the day after.

Robert is an extremely professional and talented individual. I am a former baseball player of 32 years and was involved in serious vehicle accident 2 years ago where I broke vertebrae in my back with crush injuries to my hands along with some additional injuries. Robert has made it to where this is by far the best my body has felt physically post accident. He is a blessing.

Robert was on point for the problem areas and knew how to alleviate the tightness and pain that I had. And this was just my first session with him. Will definitely go back. Thanks!

Robert provides a truly unique experience. This is my 3rd massage and I can say that each one has met my needs. Robert's techniques are great applying the right amount of pressure, yet checking with you to be sure you're comfortable. The space is small, providing a Zen experience. His business is professional, great offerings and no waiting.

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.
