Licensed massage therapist Katrina Guthrie likens herself to a body mechanic; indeed, the names of her massages sound more like services at an auto shop than a massage center. The Tune Up combines a variety of modalities to forge full-body relief, and the Lube Job takes its name from the essential oils starring in the aromatherapy massage, which invigorates clients’ senses and ensures they don’t stick to their wok-shaped shoes. These whimsical titles belie Katrina’s serious approach to her profession, she possesses a strong belief in human touch as a mechanism for natural healing. Within a quaint brick building, she harnesses natural healing remedies to melt away stresses, aches, and pains from the bodies and minds of her clients.
Herbalist and licensed clinical massage therapist Marguerite Wright offers natural healing solutions to help clients get to the roots of their health issues, such as stress, insomnia, or depression.

Camron Nico Salon offers treatments to make their clients over from head to toe. But before that transformation begins, each staff member receives extensive training in their respective field.

The salon's menu also includes mani-pedis, facials, hair extensions, and coloring treatments.

A naturally swift runner, the licensed massage therapist at Allison Wellness & Mobile Massage travels up to 50 miles out of Mokena and Bourbonnais to help alleviate tension and sore muscles.

In addition to on-location services, Allison Wellness also has a brick and mortar location.
