Massage Haven carries out its mission to help those suffering from pain or stress by treating every patient with personalized care. The facility has provided services at its current Batavia location for 20 years and offers a range of massage modalities that include Swedish, deep tissue, and myofascial release. Before initial treatments, Massage Haven's professionals conduct a brief consultation both to find out what each patient is hoping to gain from massage and to make sure none of their bones are made of marshmallows.
Believing the human body can be rejuvenated through more methods than medicine alone, the staff at Brinka Health and Wellness Center utilize various holistic techniques to bolster patients' well-being. Doctor of Chiropractic Ryan Brinka, who became a strong believer in the profession in college after a chiropractor eliminated the pain resulting from a childhood neck injury, eases discomfort by adjusting the body's spinal column. The staff further shoos away pain with oriental medicine, acupuncture, and massage therapy. Life coach Brenda Brinka keeps patients in shape during her 12-week weight-loss program by tailoring exercise regimes, recommending dietary supplements, and blasting a bullhorn whenever clients pick up a donut.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Kryssage Wellness's three-person team blends traditional medicine with massage and alternative healthcare in order to teach the body to heal itself.

Guests may request appointments online or by explaining their symptoms to a sympathetic carrier pigeon.
Nestled in the heart of the verdant Fox River Valley, idyllic Geneva lies about 36 miles west of Chicago's Loop area, but its laid-back rural vibe seems a world's away from the big city's honking cabs and rackety trains. Historical buildings and tree-lined streets define downtown Geneva, with 200 specialty shops ranging from artisanal jewelers, chic women's clothing stores, and boutique eateries. Built by German immigrants in the 1850s, the 68-foot Fabyan Windmill lies along the river to the south of town, recently restored with timber from the Netherlands. On the first Friday of every month, Geneva's residents take a self-guided art walk through nine area galleries, which open their doors to serve refreshments, host live performances, and show off their portraits of mustachioed news anchors. Down the street, the Geneva History Center delves into the city's past as an early Kane County seat and an agricultural hub.
Like the sprouting petals of a lotus flower, licensed massage therapist Amy Bochenek's passion bloomed at the Chicago School of Massage, where she spent hundreds of hours training in anatomy and kinesiology.
