Kinesio tape is a latex-free elastic tape placed on the skin to treat muscle disorders and swelling. The tape helps facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It promotes lymphatic flow and healing, decreases pain and inflammation, enhances athletic performance and prevents injury.
There are hundreds of ways to apply Kinesio tape. We first evaluate your needs and apply the tape specifically for you. Learn more at kinesiotaping.com
Massage helps restore function to muscles and joints. If you stress your body physically through sports, bad posture or repetitive motion at work, regular massage therapy can help prevent injury. Massage therapy alleviates muscle tension and pain, lowers your blood pressure and eases stress. There are countless benefits from regular massage including improved circulation, flexibility, even your mental health.
We provide Clinical Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage, and Prenatal Massage. All of our massage therapists are licensed by the state of Illinois.

Class 4 Laser
The latest technology in healing and wound care: Class 4 Laser treatment, similar to the light therapy, offers a reduction in pain, inflammation, arthritis, injuries and so much more. Class 4 lasers can penetrate tissue deeper, offering quick results. FDA approved.
“Cold laser” therapy has been FDA-approved to treat tissue injury and pain. The wavelength frequency works on the cellular level to speed up the growth of healthy cells and promote healing. Circulation is stimulated, swelling is decreased, and collagen synthesis is increased. This therapy is effective in treating most types of tissue injury such as muscle sprain/strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, disc herniation, etc.
Electric Muscle Stimulation
Also referred to as interferential current, `stim’ refers to short electrical impulses targeted to injured muscles to decrease pain and relax muscles. The stimulation feels like a micro massage in the muscle. As an added benefit—endorphins, the body’s own `pain relievers,’ are released during the treatment.
A therapeutic frequency of sound waves is applied to the injured muscle, joint, or
ligament/tendon to increase circulation, decrease inflammation and swelling.
