Hello, welcome to my page !

I believe bodywork is essential to living a good and balanced life. A single, custom-tailored session is informed by 10 years of experience. My background is in luxury spas, healing retreat centers and numerous continuing education workshops. I also offer education to therapists that are looking to advance their skill set.

I guarantee a clean and professional environment in which to provide intentional, skillful bodywork. My sessions use organic oil, high quality essential oils, a... heated table, hot stones, hot towels, heated herbal compresses and curated music.

I incorporate Deep Tissue, Esalen, Swedish, Craniosacral, Hawaiian, stretching and Trigger Point into my sessions.

Sessions are available in a warm, clean studio located in Uptown Chicago.

Also, I assure a safe and welcoming environment for the the gay/LGBT community.

I look forward to having you and being your regular therapist!

I have been seeing Stevie for several months now and my body couldn’t be happier! He is skilled, warm, strong and present. He has some techniques I haven’t experienced before … putting me on my side to get into my neck and his face massage is 100. Also the massage table is cozy!

The session I had was very good … beautiful actually. Receiving a massage with Rusty was great because he is present, intuitive and was seamless in his approach. The style wasn’t one I had received before. Bravo! 5 stars and more.

Woah! I feel like I have stumbled across a true gem. I have never received such skilled massage. Rusty is very sweet and nurturing in his sessions. The sessions have also been very spa like : hot table, hot towels, hot stones and hot oil. I feel lucky to have found Rusty and even luckier that I get to spend the winter with his rituals. Thank you Rusty , for your magic ! You were unexpected and I look forward to our work together.

Rusty is an extremely talented massage therapist. He is professional, warm, provides great pressure and clearly has experience. The space was comfortable and has a shower. The music was also great!

Such a sweet spirit and makes you feel very comfortable. A great massage with an intuitive touch. Finds the knots and works them out. I am a regular!
