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, specilazed 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 and in addition teach classes and host a monthly Reiki workshop. I have studied botanical art, Middle Eastern dance and martial arts, in addition to being an avid organic gardener and preserver of food. I am also a sustainable food activist.

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,  Thai Bodywork by Lauren Hendricks In addition to Cindy Hyzy and Kathy Lindeen . 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.

Finally, a good source for ashiatsu in the western suburbs! Helen is attentive, skilled and a calming soul. Immediately after my first service, I made an appointment to return. I will go to Helen at Essential Healing and Massage on a regular basis for health maintenance.
