Ric Holloman

"I love the sticky leaves of spring, the blue sky... that is all" - Fyodor Dostoyevsky (from The Brothers Karamazov)

I found my true calling in January of 1991. That's when I began my career as a massage therapist, at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy. I didn't stay on that path very long, however: as a young man who wanted to know everything about everything, my neverending curiosity about the world soon led me down other, very different paths (horticulturist, science teacher, farmer). Always one to follow my passions, I led a rich, varied, and unusual life before finally returning to my true calling...

Always one to follow my passions, I led a rich, varied, and unusual life before finally returning to my true calling in 2015 to make massage therapy my full-time occupation. This work gives me great joy and satisfaction. It makes me happy to know that my work makes a difference in people's lives. Why not let me help you?

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Ric was very friendly and welcoming. I came in much early and Ric didn't have me wait for my appointment schedule. Mentioned to Ric during the brief intake to open up my upper chest muscles and he started me in supine and worked on my pecs with myofasc approach --- that was awesome. Great pressure, checked in with me from time to time. What was very outstanding to me was Ric's draping --- reminded me of draping done in the classroom, but done with ease and tucked securely. Ric's style of bodywork was a first for me, he started dry/no lotion to really have a feel of the tissues. When he worked my calves with some good slow stripping and firm effleurage, that was awesome. Looking forward for next time with Ric to help me loosen up my right hip to achieve good flexion and extension. Thanks Ric, well worth my trip! You have got to try Ric's bodywork!

Wonderful session. Came in with tension in my neck and shoulders. Ric gave me focused attention in those areas as part of a relaxing massage.
