Knowledge and skills....

Colleen has been helping me for years--I initially went in need of a soothing massage. We both soon realized I needed and received an excellent deep tissue massage. I was hooked, it felt great. Also, I love how well my body responds to her Shiatsu massages and the latest technique we've been using is the cupping on my lower back and shoulders. I'm well cared for by Colleen's professional knowledge and skills.

Colleen is very professional and knowledgeable, but above that, she listens to what is going on with your body and targets those areas that are most tense & in need of attention! I suffer with asthma, and after a session with her, I am able to breathe deeper and note less shortness of breath... and of course feel more relaxed :)

I have been a client of Colleens for years and am so spoiled by her expertise I would never go to anyone else. I arrive tense and tight and leave feeling a complete sense of well-being. She has a beautiful manner, is extremely knowledgeable and talented and intuitive...she is extraordinary. I could go on and on ...Just go and see for yourself!!!

Can not say enough positive things..........

I have had a tremendous amount of experience with receiving massage at both high end spas in Chicago-land as well as out of state. I also have had to rely on massage therapy as a result of an injury. Colleen is by far the most gifted therapist I have ever encountered. She is intuitive, smart and comprehensive in her approach. I would recommend her to anyone seeking significant results and relief via massage. Sue Schell (9-28-11)

So thorough and knowledgeable

Colleen has been an amazing deep tissue massage gal for me. She is so thoughtful in making sure I am comfortable. She educates me as I ask questions regarding my muscles and aches and pains. She has given me numerous stretches and exercises to do to help specific problems that I was having. I never felt rushed by her. Also I felt like she really cared what was going on in my life BUT never pried or ask questions. She is a willing listener and cares about me. Her knowledge and sensitivity as she does my massages exceeds my expectations. I never feel like she is even having a bad day. And everyone has bad days.
