LIZ BELL
Shiatsu Practitioner & Reiki Master

Liz comes to us from Evanston's Zen Shiatsu School. Her compassion for healing is reflected in the satisfied clients that return time and time again for her healing touch and understanding.

I love Shiatsu, it is a gentle process of connecting the meridian points on a body while incorporating some gentle movement and compression of limbs.  You will feel very relaxed and centered after these sessions! 

LARRY ZWOLINSKI
LMT, The Trager® Approach

Larry is a Licensed Massage Therapist andCertified Trager® Practitioner.  He has over 20 years experience in bodywork.  His peaceful, optimistic presence and intuitive strength begin a path to relaxation. 
My touch creates wonderfully comforting feelings that inspire the body to let go of holding patterns.  The clients I see feel an energetic flow that connects muscles, fascia and the mind. The body is reminded that its unique parts work together for greater health.  After a session my clients gain peacefulness, fluidity in movement and lightness in mood. I know that the human body has an innate capacity for healing itself, and sometimes it needs assistance to get back on track.  I also practice pregnancy massage, myofascial techniques, trigger point therapy and Reiki.

Michelle MOUSE SAVAIANO
LMT, RMT, MFR,
The Body Psychic, Ceu instructor & owner of Touch Transform


For 20 plus years Mouse has been evolving in the Energy Work she channels, including but not limiting to Reiki, Shamanic Journey, Clairvoyant, Clairaudient, Chakra clearing or balancing and a plethora of other energy work comes through in theBody Psychic Session. Needless to say, for 9 years she has also been a Massage Therapist incorporating her tools to allow for the best outcome for the Client. 

I have a therapeutic lean to my work - I find it someplace between Physcial Therapy and Massage - that there is this unnamed place of healing modality that I have been able to tap into. So if you need help with pre/post surgeries,chronic pain, trauma, injury, fall, accident, TMJ / NECK issues with Voice, Neck, Throat, Swallowing and/or Breathing related issues - I will be able to help. 


Take all that you think you know about massage and think again. 
All she asks is  that you be open to receive and allow the healing needed to take place. This is not your "average massage" - there is no predetermined technique or pattern to her work.

If you are looking for that "Relaxation" Massage, or "Deep Tissue"  please book with Corie she is the perfect person to see for that.
