The holidays are over, and it's back to the grind. A perfect time to pamper yourself with a luxurious massage treatment.
I have more than 10 years of experience specializing in modalities from feather-light touch to rigorous deep tissue work geared specifically to your needs.
For me, ALL forms of massage are inherently sensorial. This is true from the moment you take your clothes off and lay down, and I begin touching you, and you feel the amazingly varied sensations of pleasure that come from my use of oils, light or deep pressure, and my thumbs, fingers, forearms, elbows, thighs, toes on your body
My studio, at the top of a lakefront high-rise, is close to bus and train(valet parking available in building).
I've created a complete environment for you to escape the stresses of life and rejuvenate your spirit.
Candlelight, soft music, your choice of table or futon,and a warm, quiet, discrete, pet-free environment with shower facilities await you. I use only hypoallergenic, non-scented lotions.
I also do out calls within Chicago and nearby suburbs. My hours are 2 pm till midnight., 7 days a week. Also, ask about my affordable and popular 4-hand massage.
*** I welcome ALL ages, shapes, sizes, and medical conditions. ALL of us are sensorial beings, and you will receive my utmost respect and care!
The power of touch has been a passion in my life since I first realized, at 18, the amazing connection between body, emotions and mind.
A year living in Israel, graduate study at the U. of Wisconsin in the psychology of emotion, my work as a counselor with mentally ill adults, and my published writings on emotion and thought helped me to understand more about the positive changes that intense feeling can create in us.
This is what I have learned about massage along the way: When you become a masseur, you are actually becoming many things. You are becoming an athlete, because to do
your job effectively without injuring yourself, you have to maintain yourself in top notch physical condition.
You are also to an extent a dancer, because you are performing choreography on your clients. That means as a
quality masseur you will develop an awareness of how to coordinate the movements of your fingers, hands, feet
and torso to give as seamless a performance as possible.
The best masseurs are also musicians, integrating their mastered techniques to create an organic,
intentional flow instead of a mechanical process. Like music, massage has rhythms, tones, chords, consonances
and dissonances, introductions, rises and denouements.
Great masseurs are also psychologists. So much of the aches and pains people store in their shoulders,
upper and lower back, glutes and legs is the body's defensive response to emotional stress. A masseur's
challenge is to read the body language of stress, connecting knotted, spasmed muscles and stiff joints
with a terrorizing boss or a needy spouse. Even seeing a new masseur is stressful for many people.
Finally, a masseur wears a spiritual hat.
Practicing massage has opened up for me whole new worlds of appreciation and enjoyment of the aesthetic joy
of touch. I think a lot of us are imprisoned by barriers to connecting with others. Not just from childhood trauma or strict religious upbringing, but the barriers of negative body self-image, or not being able to get past the imperfections we see(age, weight, physical blemishes) in other bodies.
