At our wellness center, we offer not only acupuncture, but other complementary natural therapies to help our patients lead healthier, more balanced lives. Massage therapy is a great way to ease muscle tension and promote relaxation. Through the strategic manual manipulation of soft tissues, massage can help increase blood circulation, bring more nutrients to problem areas, and effectively treat pain problems. In addition to helping with muscle tension and pain problems, massage therapy can also help ease mental stress, reduce anxiety, and promote overall well-being. It can be a great adjunct to acupuncture treatments, or can be very beneficial on its own.

Meet Lee Ferrenbach, LMT
Lee studied massage therapy at a college of oriental medicine (The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine) and was trained to blend eastern and western styles of bodywork. He enjoys blending deep tissue massage therapy with acupressure, ROM work, cranial sacral therapy, cupping, gua sha, and Tui na. His background is in personal training and martial arts instruction so he understands where and how tension can accumulate within the body and how to release it effectively.

Since therapeutic massage is considered a manual therapy, there is a good chance that your sessions could be covered by your health insurance.

If not using insurance, the out of pocket rate is $80 for an hour or $40 for half an hour. To schedule an appointment with Tracy or Lee, please call our office at 312-890-5553.
