Kind and welcoming!

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

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.
  • Avatar Connie Pladson ★★★★★ a year ago
    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.

About Massage

A massage can do wonders for you, both physically and mentally. No longer considered just an indulgence, massage is also recognized as effective treatment for stress and anxiety, improved blood circulation and lymph function and relief of muscle and joint soreness.

There are many kinds of massage that descend directly from Sweden, Germany, France, England and the Orient. The common link among all the methods is interaction with muscles, muscle attachments and circulation (As opposed to spine and bone manipulation practiced by chiropractors).

My work involves the purest form of relaxation, primarily through the most popular form, Swedish massage. Swedish massage employs movements in a wide range of light to firm pressure. It can be slow and gentle, vigorous or bracing, depending on the client’s needs or wishes. It can involve gentle stretching, hand and finger pressure, gentle tapping or thumping and some friction.

During my business career I was also fortunate enough to experience many forms of massage around the world. I try to combine the best forms that I have experienced into the most popular, Swedish Massage. 

Whether you want to relax, relieve stress or work on neck, back, or shoulder tightness, I will do my best to accommodate your needs. You are the client and you may direct the kind of massage and touch you need.

Depending on the Season of the year I use cotton or flannel sheets, oils or creams, always bring a heating blanket and a selection of relaxing music and CD player.

Of course I’ll be glad to discuss any of your needs or concerns before you make an appointment. Again, you are the customer!

about massage Galena IL
Massage Health Benefits Are Numerous

We all know that a massage feels great and the feeling can last for hours. That alone is reason enough for you to call me. But that’s just one of the many benefits of getting a massage. Therapeutic massage has been successfully used as one of the resources in the overall treatment of these health concerns.

  • Sports Injuries
    Massage can help the body pump higher levels of oxygen and essential nutrients into recovering tissues.
  • Headaches
    Massage can help you relax, easing blood pressure and pain.
  • Fibromyalgia
    There is no known cure for fibromyalgia so the best possible solution for some is symptom control through non drug methods and massage is at the top of the list for many.
  • Depression
    Increasing the blood flow through massage can provide a natural lift in serotonin and dopamine levels that are associated with a feeling of well being.
  • Anxiety
    Being able to relax is one of the best methods of coping with high levels of Anxiety. Massage is a natural way to reduce levels of the hormone cortisol which can be Anxiety related.
  • Stress
    Just a single massage can help in lowering your cortisol, heart rate and insulin, which are all tied to stress
  • Insomnia
    Dozing off on a massage table is fairly common. If you have then you don’t need to be convinced that a massage can be an asset when sleeping is a problem. Massage can increase the feeling of relaxation and help eliminate some of the barriers to a restful sleep.
  • Back Pain
    Therapeutic Massage helps people in pain feel better and function with less pain. Massage is also beneficial when attempting to decreased stiffness and increase your range of motion.

Despite its many healing benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for any type of professional medical care. It is best to let your doctor know when trying massage as part of a medical treatment.
