Hello, I'm Lisa, your massage therapist from Chicago. Let me compose a session that heals and creates an experience for you that has a purpose and a moment in time. I can be as deep as your organs during a massage or creating brighter, bigger, spinning chakras with my hands a foot above your body. You will find that I will navigate to areas of your body that need relaxation, rejuvenation, and rehabilitation.
Truly, it is an art. It's working with the human body as the medium; building, sculpting, reforming, clearing, creating. The first massage school I went to was The Chicago College of Healing Arts. My google search of "philosophy" found me the mission statement for this massage school of all things. It talked about learning how to heal yourself before you heal others. I thought, hmmmm, yes! So I blindly attended my fist day in which our teacher wore a tie-die shirt, no shoes, had hands that could crush wood, and looked like Zeus himself! But we started by simply holding a stranger's hands and exploring those subtle sensations over an hour's time. Riveting.
I provide a HEALTH benefit customized to your needs and concerns.
I form a combination of modalities to provide you with what you need. Everything from: Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Craniosacral, Energywork, Deep Tissue, Range of Motion Stretching, Structural Therapy, Lymphatic drainage, Breathing, Reflexology, and Pregnancy.
I hope to do all this in an atmosphere where "unique" and "quality" meet.; working with people who are passionate, thinkers, artists, lyricists, musicians….beautiful. People who use their bodies, definitely their minds, and for sure their spirits.
Massage is about music and movement; the tunes that play during the experience and the melody of the body, the movement of out with the old and in with the new. This is not my job, this is my passion and I can't wait to meet you soon with a smile, empathy, and educated touch.
I am Lisa. I am grounded, random, loving, sensitive, strong, inspired, and honored to be your massage therapist.
Breathe deep, seek peace.
“I just want to let you know I had my session yesterday with Lisa and it was way better than expected. I've had many deep tissue massages since my injury last year and none of the massage therapists have approached the problem from the standpoint she did; treating the entire body, instead of just the area of injury. She found problem areas I was unaware of. I was originally hoping to schedule a session with Jaye because of her proximity to city and especially because of her background in Kinesiology. As a working drummer I had a few questions I was hoping to run past her regarding posture, motion, etc. But, Lisa was really really great! I'm not sure if all of your assistants take the same approach to treatment that she does, but her approach and her tiny hands of steel certain made the trip worth while. Lisa is one of those therapists you take note of and refer to others. Thanks again.
