Regain & maintain a healthy happy body.
Hi! My name is Abbi Hanson. I am an Illinois licensed massage therapist, wife, and mommy to three beautiful children. I graduated from The Arizona School of Massage Therapy in 2012 with a focus on Structural Integration.
My greatest joy in life is being a mom and after taking some time to grow my little family I felt drawn to learn prenatal massage to help other moms-to-be along their pregnancy journeys.
Having a passion for working with individuals to reduce/correct postural imbalances that cause mobility issues & pain has led me to focus on my structural massage techniques with future goals to continue my education in myofascial therapy & become specialized in oncology massage.
Hello! My name is Amanda Havis and I am the owner, massage therapist & personal trainer at Intuitive Touch Massage Therapy. I studied massage therapy at Cortiva Institute and graduated in 2007. I am an Illinois licensed massage therapist.
I have continued my education in myofascial release, kinesiology, hot stone massage, reiki, aromatherapy, and soft tissue injury assessment and therapeutic techniques for the knee.
I am also a National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer & Corrective Exercise Specialist with future goals in learning many more natural approaches to health.
I started ITMT in 2010 and feel so grateful to have grown so much in my skills to be able to help individuals drastically reduce pain & increase mobility as well as better understand their bodies & learn self care techniques to further improve mobility, strength & overall health. I love my work & feel so blessed to have been able to help so many and build such wonderful relationships with people, some of even 8+ years!
Intuitive Touch Massage Therapy opened its doors in 2010. It is located in a cozy little office building across from the McHenry police station. Please see above slideshow for pictures of the beautiful office.
Our dream was to offer a place where each session was specifically designed around that individuals needs. We wanted to offer more than just 'a deep tissue massage' or 'relaxation massage'. ITMT focuses on combining a variety of the most productive techniques to create the most effective session possible. The ultimate goal is to reduce pain and tension and increase mobility in the most effective and relaxing way possible.
Personal training focusing on corrective exercise is another service we offer to further increase mobility & strength. The goal is to build a strong foundation by assessing & correcting any muscle/postural imbalances & increasing stability, balance, endurance and strength.
