Therese Holland*Massage Therapy -
      Therese became interested in massage therapy in 1995 during her own quest for better health and stress reduction. After taking a six week introductory course at The Chicago School of Massage , she enrolled in the program and graduated in 1998. She has received certifications in prenatal and postpartum massage, Reiki, hot stones, biodynamic cranial sacral therapy, and became a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher. She has taken continuing education courses in aromatherapy, thai massage, hot stone massage, sports massage, cranial sacral therapy, and Reiki. Her continued interests are in exercise physiology, nutrition, meditation, mindfulness, pain management, yoga, biodynamic cranial sacral therapy, aromatherapy, and energy work. 
    Her office is in a quiet tranquil suite shared with other therapists, and an acupuncturist in downtown Evanston, IL. Therese also works part time at Lake View Athletic Club in Chicago's lake view neighborhood, and at balance health & wellness in Lincoln Park.
    Therese enjoys cooking, vegetable gardening, long walks, yoga, massage, photography, and spending time with friends and family. For the past three years Therese has been taking classes in metalsmithing and enameling creating wearable art pieces that she sells at a local Evanston boutique called Coucou and Olive.
