Do you have nagging stiffness or pain that's worse with certain movements and positions? Do you need a space to fully unwind and feel at peace? Then you've come to the right massage therapist! My name is Twain and I invite you to experience bodywork that both rejuvenates the mind and effectively relieves pain/ stiffness from the body.

I've been a licensed massage therapist in Chicago for over 10 years and a licensed acupuncturist for 4. I... describe my bodywork as clinical because my approach while relaxing is also methodical and thorough. I combine my knowledge of anatomy, kinesiology, and therapeutic exercise with my many years of hands-on experience to establish a strong connection, flow, and efficacy of technique to help restore your sense of wellbeing.

I do both in-calls and out. My treatment room is clean, cozy, and welcoming with Covid-19 Precautions in place.

I’ve been receiving massages from Twain for years now. I keep coming
back for three reasons. First, Twain knows about the human body because
he’s studied it. He’s not just a masseur, he’s a body worker. Upon arrival
he’ll always ask, “are we working on something particular today?” He
wants to know about trouble spots or if you’re just there for total body.
Plain and simple he gives a great massage. Second, you get the full time
that you pay for, there’s no hedging. This has become important to me.
Third, it’s that attribute that’s a little more difficult to quantify but is so
important, CONNECTION. I don’t just feel like one more number, or even
one more body. I have been to a few masseurs that seem to just want to
get it over with. That’s not Twain. I always leave feeling rejuvenated and
not wanting the massage to end. Give him a try, he’s like Jay’s potato
chips … LOL.

I’ve been getting massage and acupuncture treatments from Twain for several years now; he is professional, reliable, and intuitive with his treatments. Over the years I have had several chronic issues that he has helped me recover from using both massage and acupuncture. As a licensed professional, he takes his practice of the healing arts very seriously however, his personality and energy always brightens and lightens my day and leaves me feeling relaxed and refreshed from his therapeutic treatments. His consistency in the quality and length of his treatments is a rare find these days; I never feel short changed or rushed with my appointments. The only reason I would not recommend him to others, is purely a selfish one, as I don’t want him to become too busy to schedule me in.
