Bodies in Balance Mary Slight

About Mary

I am a massage therapist in Libertyville, Illinois and believe in the power of touch to create healing. My mentor described massage best as "grounded in science, applied with the hands, and coming from the heart". So true.image

My education includes over 1,000 hours of training in bodywork, and advanced certifications. I am a former instructor at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy having taught Swedish, myofascial release, neuromuscular, Raindrop Technigue, trigger point, pregnancy massage, sports massage, infant massage, and more. I am licensed in Illinois and nationally certified.

I can help you meet your goals for pain relief, injury prevention/recovery, or stress reduction.  I use a combination of therapies, my understanding of anatomy and kinesiology and intuition to tailor each massage to the client’s needs. I consider every massage an ongoing dialogue with your body. By studying trigger point and referral patterns, finding fascial restrictions, and muscle tightness or imbalance, causes of pain or discomfort can be uncovered and addressed.
