Are you an overworked employee with stiff joints from too many hours crouched over a desk?
An avid runner whose IT bands are shrieking for help?
Do you need a massage to relieve chronic pain or post-op issues?
Or, maybe you’re just overdue for some “me time.”

If you’re searching for customized holistic massage therapy in the western suburbs of Chicago, I’m here to meet your unique needs.

My name is Donna, and massage therapy is my life’s passion. I’m both honored and delighted to use my expertise to help folks from all walks of life find relief from pain, stress, and emotional trauma by providing massages tailored to soothe your body and soul.

Getting a massage from me is not your standard, run-of-the-mill experience.

Within the walls of my tranquil, soothing massage space, I have witnessed my clients’ health and well-being transform with my multi-faceted holistic approach to massage. You see, I not only help you get relief from your nagging aches and pains – I also address the physical, emotional, and mental factors playing a role in how your body feels. Then, I’ll show you how small, manageable changes can keep you feeling great between massages.

Showing you how your body works and how to free yourself from daily stressors, chronic pain, and emotional trauma that build up and aggravate your muscles is the basis of my holistic technique. Your customized massage session includes recommendations for corrective exercises, stretches, self-care, and nutritional advice. My comprehensive approach addresses what’s causing your issues and helps restore your muscular system to its natural, healthy baseline.

My passion for offering the highest quality massage experiences runs deep.

I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 22 years. I’m also a Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist. Having this credential means I’m qualified to address your body’s unique issues by assessing your posture and showing you how specific stretches and corrective exercise techniques can enhance the benefits therapeutic massage has to offer.

As a steadfast advocate of education, learning all I can about massage is a huge part of my life. To stay up to date, I not only engage in continuous learning as an instructor – I’m personally dedicated to keeping up with the latest research and methods so I can best serve my clients. Seeing how applying my ever-growing skill-set improves my clients’ outcomes is one of the most rewarding things about my job.

And, because I believe everyone should feel safe enough to experience the profound healing of massage, I became certified to work with domestic violence and sexual assault victims’ special needs. My interest in this area began in grad school when I became involved with Mutual Ground, an organization that works with individuals and families affected by domestic and sexual violence. This cause is near and dear to my heart, and I still volunteer there today.

For the past four years, I have also volunteered with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, providing sports massage for international elite runners. 

I look forward to hearing your story and discovering how I can help you move more freely, reduce pain, and feel less stressed.

I can’t wait to show you the restoring impact holistic massage can have on your body and soul!

Be prepared to be able to exit your mind for your session. Your muscles will be busy being re-adjusted wonderfully by Donna. She is an artist. She knows what needs to be done and you should just let go and allow her.

A massage by Donna is absolutely the ticket to bringing back energy and relieving the harmful stresses life puts on my body. She listens to where you hurt and then customizes your massage that time to what you need.
