    Gerald was such a pleasure! My husband and I had 75 min massages at our airbnb rental in Galena for our anniversary get away. Feeling super relaxed now. Highly recommend booking a massage with Gerald!!! He travels to your location and the … More massage was amazing!! We will be back to Galena again and will definitely book another massage. Thank you Gerald! 😁 Kelly & Dan

    This massage therapist Gerald Moore is one of the best if not the best massage therapist in the Galena territories. There is more to Gerald than just the awesome massages he gives you. Gerald is very personable & will make you feel … More as if you are with a trusted friend. He really enjoys giving massages & interacting with his customers. If you have experienced massages from other massage therapists in the Galena area try the massage from Gerald. You will be glad you did.

    One of the best massages I've ever had. My wife and I spontaneously decided a massage sounded like a great addition to our getaway weekend. We messaged Gerald the night before and he was very flexible getting us scheduled last minute. … More To be honest, we were both a bit nervous and anxious about having someone come to our hotel room. Gerald was very personable and made us feel at ease once he got there. He brought everything you'd expect at a full massage studio to our room. I'm so glad we booked with him and will definitely be repeat customers next time we visit Galena!

    while having a girls getaway (dear friend visiting while our husbands were out of town) at my home in Elizabeth i scheduled a massage for both of us with Jerry. I have had a massage by him in the past and it was a wonderful experience … More but i was a bit trepidatious about my friend being that she has been a licensed massage therapist herself for over 20 years and quite discerning when it comes to body work. Needless to say she was over the moon with her experience and told me it was one of the best massages she has ever had! quite a compliment given her credentials. Jerry not only understands massage he listens to each client and has the most amazing ability to find the areas that our lifestyles (sports, exercise regimes) seem to strain. He is a lovely human being to boot!

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.
