Helen graduated from the School for Therapeutic Wellness and Massage . I am a a licensed Massage Therapist in the State of Illinois, and an escapee from the corporate world as is the owner and founder of Essential Healing and Massage . Previously I was in electrical engineering with almost two decades in spanning the hardware, software and systems integration functions .I have found the two career disciplines very complimentary- with the human electrical system being much more fascinating. My specific massage modalities include Therapeutic Massage, specialazed training in Lymphatic Drainage , Deep tissue work, Myofascial release, Jin Shin Do Acupressure, Hot Stone Therapy, and of course Reiki. I am a Reiki master-Teacher .

I have studied botanical art, Middle Eastern dance and martial arts, in addition to being an avid organic gardener,cook, and preserver of food.

Essential Healing and Massage, what we do: We are a wellness oriented clinic,  I say "we", because I have been lucky enough to bring in some other great therapists, A wonderful and engaging yoga teacher, Liz Gresher,  Cindy Hyzy and Kenal Mehta. I am very selective on staff. My goal is to help the source of any trouble that a client is presenting with. This approach may include  a combination of things, and our specialty is combination treatments. In addition, if we feel that an outside referral will benefit you, , we have a number of other local health professionals to suggest in our own network of referrals.


Some of our most popular combinations:

Yoga :Include a 45 minute private Yoga prior to or after your massage. The restorative style that Elizabeth teaches is incredibly empowering to the client as a health tool.

Sauna: Add a 15, 20, 30 or 45 minute Far-infrared Sauna treatment to your massage. We suggest this before a therapeutic , hot stone or lymphatic massage, and AFTER a yoga or Thai bodywork appointment. You will be amazed at the benefits this offers for weight loss, detoxification and overall metabolism.

I enjoy most seeing my clients improve problem conditions, regain health, find tools that help them maintain that health improve their overall mental, emotional and physical well being.

Helen combined a unique blend of essential oils into the massage lotion that was very soothing and not overwhelming with fragrance. She was able to massage out the extra sore areas in my shoulder and leg. The biggest difference is how much more freely I can move my arm & neck. Definitely merits a return visit.

I can't wait to go back. Helen was so warm and I instantly felt a connection to her. The massage was wonderful and I felt so much better after leaving. I can't wait to see Helen again!
