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.

Helen is excellent. She is able to locate problem areas and release tense muscles.

Helen was just terrific! This was my 1st time having an Ashiatsu massage and Helen was absolutely fantasic. Helen's touch was gentle but firm at the same time. She spoke to me about areas that she felt were tense, as well as how the amount of preasure being used was ok. I plan on trying to have future monthly sessions to help manage my pain and stress.

Helen is very skilled and has helped me tremendously on my journey to better health.

I came in with a great deal of pain in my right shoulder but Helen knew immediately that the cause of that pain was the result of the tightness of other muscles. She spent the session focusing on my neck muscles and it definitely impacted the pain I had experienced in my shoulder. I would highly recommend her services to anyone experiencing pain.
