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.

Very knowledgable and caring healer

Helen is a wonderful therapist. She is great at correcting my problem areas, and can find spots that I didn't even realize were giving me trouble. I always leave feeling 100% better than when I arrived. I only wish I could come in daily!

Excellent massage

Helen was incredibly knowledgable and skilled and clearly knew her way around the landscape of a tension-filled body! She addressed a lingering shoulder injury and I am feeling immediate relief!

I came to Helen to rebalance my energy through Reiki Attunement and Jin Shin Do. Both of these, especially the Jin Shin Do, achieved the objective. I left feeling fully balanced and energetically recharged. Very satisfied with the service provided! Helen is an Amazing therapist.

I always like Helen's Massages

Helen made an effective start on reducing my wife's chronic tension in her neck and shoulders. The most satisfying result is hearing my wife embrace the treatment plan for healing. She is sore today, but she said she had her first night in a long time that she wasn't awakening physically tense throughout her sleeping.
