 I have gone to Hands on Massage several times and have had a wonderful experience each time.  I have shoulder and back issues and they have been great at getting me in right away when I need it and working out the "kinks".   Carol has worked with me on nutrition issues as well.  I highly recommend Hands on Massage.   Lori S.  Algonquin, IL

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest, most simple forms of therapy.  It is a combination of stroking, pressing, and kneading different regions of the body in order to alleviate pain, relax, stimulate and tone the body. It helps to stimulate blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system by improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.

As a regular part of your nutrition and wellness program, it's important for all women, men, and even teenagers to make time for their bodies. How you take care of your body, mind & soul, is how you will feel everyday of your life.

The therapies I offer are:

Swedish Massage: One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.

Prenatal Massage: A combination of massage techniques adapted to the specific needs of pregnant mothers. Special positioning and cushions are used for optimum comfort. 

Pregnancy massage is a wonderful complement to your prenatal and postnatal wellness. The sensory experience brings greater awareness to your body and your baby, enhancing your pregnancy and birth experience. Pregnancy massage reduces stress; promotes relaxation; relieves muscle pain in the hips, back, neck, and legs; helps reduce edema; and improves labor outcomes. Beyond birth, postpartum massage helps restore the abdomen and weight bearing muscles and joints.

Postpartum Massage:  Massage in the postpartum period helps bring the body into its pre-pregnancy alignment.  A massage within the first week of postpartum feels wonderful.  It flushes lactic acid out of the tissues, relieving sore and achy muscles.

Infant & Newborn Massage Instruction:  Aids in bonding process between parent and child; increases communication skills through touch; alleviates digestive discomfort (colic); supports the growth of nerve pathways; enhances sleep.

Fertility Massage:  Fertility massage may help increase fertility and reproductive  health by putting the reproductive organs into proper alignment as well  as increase blood flow. It’s a form of massage that works directly with the  abdomen of women and often times called Mayan abdominal massage, and therapists  who work with this particular massage technique also claim that it helps to break up adhesions from endometriosis.

Hot Stone Massage:  Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage therapy in which water-treated stones are placed at specific sites on the client's body to promote relaxation and to help open up the merdians or pain pathways. Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Cool stones are sometimes used alternately with hot stones.

Weight Management & Nutritional Counseling:  Includes food planning and preparation, food combining, storage and nutritional supplements. The goal is to support you in lifestyle changes, I will assess and recommend according to an individuals personal needs.
