Licensed massage therapist Cheryl Billman refreshes bodies with a personalized bouquet of back-soothing services infused with relaxing aromatherapy oils. Spread out and relish the long-fluttering strokes of the Swedish method or opt for a more focused approach with massages for migraine relief or alleviation of common sports stresses caused by overextending muscles or showing up in the opponent's uniform. While Cheryl kneads the back, arms, legs, hands, neck, and shoulders, soft music can be played to aid relaxation, and soothing, scented oils invigorate the senses and reduce friction. After a muscle-coddling session, bodies experience increased circulation, improved concentration, and easier sleep. Tending to tension from noon to 8 p.m. every day but Monday and Friday, Cheryl caters to the nine-to-five crowd and those who doubt the existence of the elusive phenomenon of "morning."
A graduate of the St. Charles School of Massage Therapy, Cheryl Billman of Body Kneads pairs a scholastic knowledge of anatomy with an empathic concern for her patrons’ health and wellness. With a variety of massage modalities on her resume—Swedish, hot-stone, reflexology, and sports massage, to name a few—the licensed therapist calls upon vast reservoirs of experience to tailor sessions to individual needs. While patrons recline on a massage table, soft music subdues stressful thoughts and aromatic whiffs of essential oils and steamy chicken soup alternate with exhalations of stress.
