-Massage- I provide clients massage therapy services tailored to their individual needs. At The Rub Chicago, clients generally come with a "this hurts, fix it" request. I enjoy the challenge of locating the source of discomfort, be it postural, injury-related, or chronic, and treating the body using a blend of massage techniques (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Therapeutic, Myofascial Release, etc.) to effectively bring each client a rewarding massage experience. Stretching is incorporated as an added benefit to the massage. It is an important component missing out of our daily lives as adults. I have had the pleasure of working on Triathletes, Marathoners, band members, dance crews, businesspersons and average Joes and Janes. Our studio location is called The Healing Room located in Chicago's West Town area. Service also includes chair massage for companies and events, and is limited to downtown Chicago and surrounding neighborhoods. -History- Formerly a corporate worker bee who spent her days (and nights) planning, coordinating, and executing events of all sizes for diverse audiences, a change in pace and life goals has given me a second career in Massage Therapy. Educated at the premier school for clinical massage therapy in the States, I treat both therapeutically and holistically. -Extracurriculars- Concurrently, for nine years I have been a public speaker for local Chicago high schools, Indiana University, church groups, hospital support groups, and legislators on the topics of adoption and marketing. These experiences have netted a feature on DVD and authorship in the internationally circulated Adoption Factbook.
