Choose Between Two Options

  • $37 for one 60-minute massage (a $75 value)
  • $109 for three 60-minute massages (a $225 value)

For each massage, choose from Swedish-relaxation, deep-tissue, or sports modalities. During a Swedish massage, therapists employ long, gliding strokes to soothe surface aches, whereas deep-tissue and sports massages hone in on chronic soreness with additional pressure.

River North Massage Therapy Center

Although they wanted to begin a massage center in 1999, Emmanuel and Barb Bistas were wise enough to bottle their dream and let it age. They planned and opened the New School for Massage, Bodywork & Healing instead. It was an investment—there, therapists trained under the Bistas' supervision until the pair became confident in their students' education and expertise. More than a decade later, they realized their initial dream and established River North Massage Therapy Center, employing only licensed graduates from their school.

Today these staff members soothe muscles with 30-, 60-, 75-, and 90-minute massages in various modalities. The smooth, long strokes of a Swedish-relaxation massage, for example, contrast with the pinpointed pressure of deep-tissue work, or the meditative stretching of Thai massage. Private treatment rooms accommodate expectant mothers as well as couples, though therapists can also travel for onsite chair massages and special events.

The center has not relinquished its roots in education, though—it still offers public workshops on massage techniques, and lets relaxation-seekers schedule appointments with supervised student interns. These opportunities allow the New School for Massage's current pupils to practice on clients rather than on scarecrows they found in the dumpster.

The couples massage workshop is the perfect date night activity. It was very relaxing and romantic.

Awesome experience! Massage class is a full 2 hours. Parking was a little tricky.
