About Maurice:
I'm just an all around fun guy. I love to workout, cook, play tennis and recieve massages. In high school I played football and ran track. I went to college at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Where I majored in Exercise Science. I graduated in 2003 with my B.S. With my degree I did some at home personal training with clients.

From there I became very interested in massage therapy. In 2005 I attended Olympia College in Skokie IL for my massage therapy degree. I finished in May of 2006. Since then I have been massaging others and receiving massages myself on a regular basis!

  • B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003
  • Massage Therapy certification from The Everest College of Skokie in 2006

List of Services:
Swedish massage, the therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil and performs various massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle “knots” or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, among other health benefits.

Deep Tissue
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.

Myofascial Release Massage
Myofascial release refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equilibrioception. Myofascial release usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling.

Pregnancy massage, also known as pre-natal massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Pre-natal massage is especially benefical in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back.

Geriatric massage is a form of massage developed for use on the elderly. This style of massage addresses specific issues common to elderly individuals, such as increased fragility and sensitivity to touch.
