About Tea


After years of trying to figure out what I want to do with my life, I realized that I have always been drawn to helping others and decided that it was time to get up and move.  I wanted to do something with my hands, something that everyone can benefit from.  These realizations and years of friends and family telling me what “good massage hands” I have led me to seriously consider massage therapy.  I now devote as much time as I can to helping others relax and take control of their health and wellness through compassionate and therapeutic massage.  By creating a safe place for decreasing stress and reconnecting with your body, you can begin to heal both physical and emotional pain.  The healing process is a two-way road and I love giving a massage almost (if not more) than the person receiving it.

I received my massage therapy certification in April 2012 from The Soma Institute, where I was trained in:

Swedish massage techniques
myofascial release
clinical testing
trigger point therapy
chair massage
sports massage
I am also certified in pre & post natal pregnancy massage therapy

Continuing education courses I have taken include: Prenatal Massage Certification, Reiki Level I, Intro to Chakras, Infant Massage and  Myofascial Release

The Bank of America, Chicago Marathon: Volunteer, October 2013 & 2011Medical tent post-event evaluation and treatment of athletic participants 

In my “free time” I like to garden, cook, do yoga, craft and spend time with my loving family and friends.

Tea is currently a busy mom of twin girls! I work at the Spa at Midtown Athletic Club Chicago and at the Chiropractic office of Dr. Lori Portnoy. Please email me to request a private session.
