Choose Between Two Options

  • $35 for one couples’ massage workshop ($79 value)

During a two-hour workshop, couples learn basic massage techniques—including effleurage, compression, and rocking—that they can use to enhance their regular shoulder rubs. Classes run Saturdays from 7:30–9:30 p.m. and Sundays 4–6 p.m. Attendees must be 18 or older.

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.
