I provide massage with a nurturing and compassionate touch to help improve the lives of her clients. I believe in the therapeutic and restorative benefits of massage as a vital component to living a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy the personal and individual nature of massage, which allows each person to customize their session to suit their individual needs.

I am so blessed to provide Fertility, Pregnancy, and Therapeutic Massage. Fertility Massage helps prepare a woman's body for conception. My Fertility Massage Clients currently have a remarkable 82% rate of conception! That means that 4 women out of every 5 women that I see for Fertility Massage has gone on to conceive either naturally or with IVF. These techniques can also be very helpful in managing many reproductive health issues, such as painful periods, PCOS, and endometriosis. Pregnancy Massage helps address her changing body during her pregnancy and after. Therapeutic Massage is fantastic for busy moms and athletes alike, addressing the physical aches and pains that they have, in addition to providing the relaxing benefits as well. I recently furthered my in using Silicone Moving Cups. I incorporate the moving cups into my Therapeutic Massage Sessions.

I earned Bachelor of Science Degrees in Exercise and Sports Science and Psychology from Carthage College. Additionally, I am a Certified Personal Trainer (AFAA). I graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 2004. I specialize in Pregnancy Massage (Bodywork for the Childbearing Year(R), Fertility Massage (Claire Marie Miller Seminars), and Therapeutic Massage.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Gianna on Aug 25
Very Professional and Patient! She really loves what she does and makes you feel so relaxed and calm. She has a true passion for massage.

It was a very relaxing massage and helped with my back pain.

I had a fantastic 90 minute therapeutic massage. It was very relaxing, but yet really worked the areas that had extra tension. I really liked that she seemed to use cues from my body to determine the treatment plan verse asking me a lot of questions during the massage. This strategy allowed me to fully relax and really enjoy the massage.

Relaxing but effective massage. Great communication and helped me with exercises after the massage.

JJ is wonderful in every way! Not only was the massage perfect and relaxing, but she is so kind and always makes you feel comfortable. She understands fertility issues as well as pregnancy aches and pains. So grateful to have her help through an IVF cycle, two embryo transfers and two pregnancies.

The first time I went to see JJ I was suffering from horrible lower back pain due to pregnancy. I could not believe how much relief I felt after just one session. Not only my back but my entire body felt better - even parts I had not noticed were in discomfort until I noticed the difference a good massage can make. Even my skin tone looked healthier! JJ paired her massage work with a genuine interest in what else might be triggering my pain and gave me advice including stretches to do at home so that I could take a proactive role in my wellness. Although my back pain is now relieved I still see JJ periodically for prenatal massage appointments which are a great relief in general and help me get through some of the more uncomfortable and "worn out" feelings that come with carrying a child.

I wasn’t sure what to expect for a prenatal massage and was blown away at how good it was! Absolutely would recommend
