Massage Therapist

Marjory Basso


My work as a massage therapist is to support a healthy active life in Chicago and the Northshore for my clients for over 25 years by promoting relaxation, treating and preventing soft tissue injuries, and helping with pain management.

Since 1989 I have utilized Swedish massage and deep tissue techniques as well as Trigger pt. therapy, Craniosacral therapy, Arthrossage,   Orthopedic and manual lymphatic massage to address muscular skeletal issues, stress and tension, and health maintenance needs.

Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy Whether rehabilitating from a cosmetic or orthopedic procedure MLD can reduce the pain and inflammation while speeding up the healing.

For more MLD information go to:

Arthrossage is a proven technique for the treatment and prevention of rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. It also helps with fibromyalgia and sports needs.  It can prevent further degeneration, relieve discomfort, increase the range of motion, and prevent muscle wasting and shortening.

Orthopedic Massage combines elements of medical massage and sports massage. It identifies which specific muscles, tendons, and ligaments are involved in the injury or pain expressed. It utilizes cross friction, stretching, and strengthening to reduce scar tissue and prevent new adhesive tissue from forming an effective treatment for tendinitis and tendinosis.

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle approach to releasing restrictions in the head, neck, and spine. It encourages the natural healing mechanisms in the body to bring balance to the nervous system after the negative effects of stress and chronic pain. Can be very effective for headaches.
