Welcome to my Elgin area massage studio. I have been a professional massage therapist full time for 15 years now. Relaxation and relief are my specialties. (Covid and Monkeypox vaccinated)

My training has varied from deep tissue and hot stones to reflexology, cranial sacral, Thai and many other modalities.

I have worked with traveling theatrical productions, in five star hotels, at high-end spas, day long sporting marathons, competitions and private events. All this experience I bring with me to the... table every time.

If you suffer from chronic pain, work stress or are looking to relax and just check out it’s no problem. Pressure, technique and tone change up throughout each massage depending on the goal of the session.

LGBTQ+ all welcome. We are all beautiful creatures.

Feel Free to send me a text with a day and time work for you and we can set things up.

My massage studio is also purified by An Allen HEPA filter for the safest experience. I do have a portable table and travel the immediate area as well.

I can’t say enough good things about my massage sessions with Edmund. I have had a few bad experiences in the past with private therapists so I am thrilled to have found a regular therapist again. He is so knowledgeable about the body and you can tell that he really cares about making sure you feel comfortable. His massage studio is so soothing, clean and comforting which is something I appreciate. His vide, music and setting is just the perfect combination for me.

I highly recommend Edmund to my friends. Not only is he s skilled massage therapist, he is caring and compassionate. He takes the time to understand your needs to ensure you receive the desired result, whether it be simple relaxation or specific problematic areas. He will also make sure it's right pressure for your comfort. My back was not in the best shape after a car accident and he definitely went over and beyond to make me feel Thanks you!!!! I Will be back monthly.

Thank you for such an incredible massage. I was not sure what I was walking into, I have had some good and not so good encounters with self employed professionals. This was by far the best I have had in my 20 years of getting massages. Edmund, your technique and hands are incredible and know just where to go. Even more than your great pressure was how open and easygoing you are. I felt like I was in good hands from the moment you answered the door. I feel I have a new friend and healer in my life.

Edmund was so nice and knowledgeable! It was my first massage so I didn't really know what to expect, he was prompt with his reply, explained everything to me and made me feel very comfortable. Table was nice and warm, space was great. My low back has finally found the right guy to fix it. Also the best price on town! Definitely recommend seeing him.

I've been seeing Edmund for over two years now and he's greatly improved my quality of life! Truly the best massage therapist I've ever experienced, and has become an important piece to my health maintenance with weekly appointments. I have Lyme disease as well as tight muscles in my upper body. During running season I also have very bad leg cramps. Edmund's massage with cranial sacral and lymphatic drainage therapies have strengthened my overall immunity and wellness. Edmund listens, uses the right pressure and has greatly helped my condition. Before Edmund, I never saw a massage therapist more than once. Now I always leave feeling relaxed and the longterm benefits have been life saving for me. Edmund is excellent, I reccomend him to everyone I know and even some that I don't. :)

Sometimes one needs a massage and sometimes one needs a therapist, thank goodness Edmund is both. From his friendly hello and beautiful massage studio to the hot tea at the end it was highlight of my month. Not only did I feel that I got a detailed and thoughtful massage but I also feel at times that I got a mental massage as well though the conversation. I learned so much about the way my shoulder is put together that will be very helpful.Thank you so much for being out there Edmund.

After a crazy 2020 I started seeing Edmund and I recommend him to any one looking for a massage. He is intelligent, funny, and an overall good guy to be in the presence of. His knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology is unparalleled. I am a nurse practitioner and he impresses me every time. Not to mention that he is helping my body heal--I acquired an upper back injury years ago and he is the first person to getting me to having no pain on most days. All I can say is Edmund, you are the best!

I have been enjoying deep tissue massages on a biweekly basis from Edmund for about 4 years now. Before my recent retirement, I had a highly stressful job. Edmund consistently helped to ease the stress by focusing in on areas where my tension affected my physical self. But, perhaps even more important, I have never left his treatments without also experiencing a sense of mental well-being. Perhaps this is reflective of Edmund himself who is not only an excellent technician but also a very caring person. I plan to continue my biweekly treatments with him even though the job stress is gone! It may sound strange if you haven't had Edmund’s massages...but I consider them one of life's necessities.

I am a dance performer so I need a very thorough and knowledgeable masseur. Edmund knew how to fix my body in places I didn't even know I needed. His touch was intuitive and with the atmosphere, the music it all just brought me to another place. My body felt fresh and reborn! Absolutely amazing! I can't say enough good things, you need to try his massage. Will definitely be seeing him again.

Jan. 15, 2021 in Elgin, IL (in-studio)

I visited Edmund for the first time today, and will definitely be going back. His knowledge of the human body and attentiveness to tension, aches & pains, etc. is second to none. He has created a warm and comfortable massage studio in his home, which gives you the feel of being in a spa. His choice of music adds to the overall experience, and allows you to completely relax. I look forward to visiting Edmund again. - Tim E, Chicago

Finding a great massage therapist is never easy and something I've always found takes a lot of trial and error which leads to money wasted. I'm relatively new to the area and was long overdue for a session. I didn't particularly want to go to one of the typical commercial business storefronts because I haven't had the best experience with them. I came across Edmund online and decided to reach out and schedule an appointment. Edmund was able to schedule me an at home session the day of. He is extremely knowledgeable about the body and very experienced. Additionally, Edmund was very respectful to my home and great at catering to my needs by custom tailoring the massage to my liking. I highly recommend Edmund You will not be disappointed.

After months of not having a massage I took the plunge and tried Edmund and I'm not sure I can go anywhere else anymore. I was in need of some serious back and leg work. Edmund was very knowledgable and his skills are off the hook. I left feeling better than I had in a very long time. If you are a long time massage person or new to it you defiantly have to find this guy a try.

Edmund's massage skill and technique in my opinion is the very best in Chicago. I have had a massage or two a month with various massage therapists over several years and I have found no one who compares to the massage I have had with Edmund. His ability to pinpoint areas in need of work is incredible; his ability of getting at deep muscle tension is also incredible. I would recommend Edmund to anyone in need of a massage.

Edmund is seriously the best! I’ve never had a massage done professionally before and he was really understanding and walked me through the whole process. A lot of people don’t usually talk during their massages but we had some great conversation and he is super funny and definitely very talented! I would highly recommend him to anyone – such a great first experience for a New Year Me!!

I immediately felt comfortable, cared for and safe on his table. . . He listens! He takes his cue from you. You get to decide if you need quiet during the session or if you are up for comfortable conversation. Edmund can accommodate either. He checks in with you, asks for feedback and is responsive in his methods of individualizing his care. I have seen him twice now and I can't wait for the next session. A true master of the massage.

March 04, 2019 in Elgin, IL (in-studio)

I just had one of the best massages in my 20+ years of getting massage. Edmund’s methodical hands and almost psychic ability to find the tension are nothings short of amazing. I tend to have a lot of low back and shoulder pain do to my job but Edmund found it all. Easy to talk to and very knowledgeable you won’t find better.
