Healing Touch is an energy-based approach to health and healing. It uses touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body and the energy centers that control the energy flow from the energy field to the physical body.
I have been a National Certified massage therapist and a member of American Message Therapy Association (AMTA) since 1997. I am also a registered nurse with 18 years experience in pediatrics having previously worked at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
A general description of my practice & technique in my words would be "Therapeutic Full Body Massage". I feel the body is a whole unit so one must address the whole body for good health, healing, and an overall feeling of wellness and relaxation. When I give a massage I will individualize the massage with a combination of firm to gentle pressure as well as some energy techniques.
Theresa Puchley, N.D., is a Wheaton Franciscan Covenant Member, Naturopathic Doctor, and has advanced certification in lymphatic drainage and lymphatic breast massage. She offers naturopathic consultations and lymphatic drainage therapy. The lymphatic system is the first line of defense for the immune system. Lymphatic drainage treatments help to remove toxins, allowing the body to heal itself.
My practice consists of providing my clients whole body health and wellness in a quiet, peaceful and safe environment. The bodywork modalities I use include Esalen style massage where long, flowing strokes give you a feeling of whole body connectedness and CranioSacral Therapy which is a non-invasive type of bodywork used to detect and correct restrictions and imbalances in your craniosacral system.
Be Well Massage has been serving clients for over 14 years and moving them ever closer to optimal health. I believe wellness is a partnership between client and practitioner. Therapeutic massage combines the power of sensitive touch with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology to create a personalized treatment.
“Changing is not just changing the things outside of us. First of all, we need the right view that transcends all notions including of being and non-being, creator and creature, mind and spirit. That kind of insight is crucial for transformation and healing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
“Our bodies communicate to us clearly and specifically, if we are willing to listen.”
– Shakti Gawai
"Everything we touch becomes a jewel for our enjoyment. We do not have to possess them, because every jewel is available for our delight. Everyone and everything here is a jewel."
