Kind and welcoming!
June 22, 2021 • Friends
Without a doubt Healing Touch of Galena Massage has the best services whether you have a physical condition that needs attention or for relaxation purposes. Gerald is very skilled at what he does, and seems naturally intuitive in his practice.
Thank you Gerald for taking such a good care of my family. We hope to be back soon!


Definitely a healing touch
May 10, 2021
Gerald has great hands, and definitely a healing touch. I had so many sore spots that were considerably more relaxed when my massage was completed. His kind personality and empathy helps him ‘feel’ where you need attention, which is given. You will be glad to have booked an appointment with him.


Better than the spa!

From the first interaction to the moment I walked off the table everything was very welcoming! The massage was amazing and Gerald made pleasant conversation as well! The environment is relaxing and soothing and the aroma therapy helps the body relax. I drove about an hour and 20 minutes and would absolutely drive it again for the quality massage I received! This cannot be matched at any of the spas I’ve visited before. 10/5 stars!!
He made sure directions to the location were easy for me to find along with pictures, called to check in and make sure everything was fine while on my way to the location.

    Gerry was so accommodating. He brought Sharon, another massage therapist, along with him. There were 4 of us staying at the vacation condo, and we were all able to get nice relaxing massages! Thank you Gerry and Sharon!

    Really good massage and great conversation! Will have to book another session.

    Gerald was kind enough to get me in right away for a massage to work on some muscle spasms in my neck and upper back. After some great massage work, I was so relaxed that I tried leaving with my shirt on inside-out and backwards! A++ … More business.

Galena Traveling Massage Reviews

Looking for a high quality professional massage in your home, hotel room, B&B or anywhere in Galena Illinois? Take a look at what other vacationers and residents have to say about their Healing Touch Galena massage experience.

Getting ready for a stay in Galena I took a quick look on trip advisor and lo and behold my wish came true! A masseur that comes to you! Gerald is not only an excellent masseur he is a resource of wisdom and suggestions on how to continue to work on staying flexible. He is personable and a delightful human being to have your path come across. My husband and I highly recommend him.

Best massage I have ever had! (review)
On a last minute trip to the Galena area I messages Gerald about getting a massage for my husband and myself after finding him on the web. He responded quickly and was very flexible scheduling on such short notice. He came to our rental on a Friday evening at 9 pm and delivered the most amazing massage I have even received (and I’ve had a lot). I will return to the area in the future just for a massage from Gerald. It was so convenient to have this done in our rental. While I expected this to be a “couples massage” it really was a solo massage as Gerald works alone. As it turns out we were blessed as then both of us got the opportunity to have Gerald as our masseuse. Simply amazing!

Great Reasons for Home, Hotel or B&B Massage

  • Time Factor – Squeezing a massage into a busy schedule is a lot easier when you only need to plan for the actual massage time. No need to plan around a commute to the spa or in between lunch and a client meeting or run back out after dinner. This never seems to work out so the massage gets pushed off once again. In home massage is great answer to the daily time squeeze.
  • Vacation Experience Enhanced – A professional massage right in your hotel room, vacation home or B&B is a great way to end a busy day of sight seeing, golfing or just lounging around. Your vacation should be about doing the things you love to do, unwinding and relaxing can be a big part of that. Finishing your day without the need to do anything or go anywhere is a great feeling.
  • Keep the Party Going – A massage therapist can be a wonderful addition to a great couples or girls hang out relax and party on weekend. No need to stop the party when the massage therapist can come to the party. What better way to include everyone and also add to the Galena experience than having everyone have a turn at a Healing Touch massage.
  • Deeper Form of Relaxation – Massage to help heal sore muscles after an active day or just trying to relax after work, you could enjoy the full health benefits of massage in the confines of your own home. Home is where we all go to relax, put up our feet and unwind, massage fits in nicely. 

Weekend Trip to Galena (review)
My husband and I needed a weekend away and came across Gerald on TripAdvisor. We both had a one hour massage and Gerald even traveled to us! It was a great kick off to our weekend and it set the tone for a nice relaxing weekend. We would recommend Gerald!

Last Minute Relaxation (review)
We emailed on our drive to Galena. He got back to us by morning and was available. He came to our house and made it so relaxing. He was knowledgeable, easy to talk to and made sure we were comfortable. It was an awesome last minute relaxation! Perfect way to recover after Thanksgiving! He even followed up the next day with a personalized note.

Added Bonus!! (review)
Mr Moore with his Healing Touch, was an added bonus to my surprise weekend away. He gave a professional, relaxing massage on location. I highly recommend!

Wonderful Massage - Solo
Jerry truly has a “healing touch”. He modifies his massage method to fit what I need at a particular session and even knows what I need without my telling him. The massage technique he uses loosens my tight muscles, relaxes and refreshes me. He skillfully combines warmth and caring with utmost professionalism.

It was great having the massage come to us. We wanted a relaxing weekend and what's more relaxing than a massage in your hotel room. Gerald was great and the prices are more than fair. Written June 10, 2022

Girls Weekend Massages
We scheduled four of us for massages while on our girl's weekend in Galena. Gerald explains his background & his massage process very thoroughly. He customized each of our services based on our requested areas of concentration & those he felt needed extra stress relief. The greatest part was that he came to our Airbnb so we could relax in our own environment. Written June 7, 2022

Magic Touch
Besides being one of the kindest individuals I have ever met, Gerald also has magic hands that can relax muscles without digging into them. He shares his knowledge of the craft and passes on techniques that I can do myself. There are also his special oil recipes that enhance the relaxation experience. I highly recommend him.

Gerald was kind enough to come out to our Airbnb for my birthday weekend and the message was nice and relaxing. Very friendly personality, easy to talk to which is a plus and bonus he fixed the tension in my neck and shoulders - he’s very gifted at what he does. Highly recommend him. Written May 31, 2022
