The moms we know are versatile. From work to home, they are 24-7, around-the-clock caring and making sure everyone and everything is all right.

There is light at the end of the tunnel! Send your mom a gift of love and appreciation as she always has done for you. Show her your care with a therapeutic massage, a relaxation or pain relief session that can be customized to her liking.

What causes pain?

  • Shortened muscles — Chronically shortened muscles are tense and tight. Therapeutic massage releases adhesions that form in tight muscles, helping to restore range of motion.

  • Referred pain — Not only does a tight muscle hurt, it can cause pain in other muscles, too. Therapeutic massage finds the source of the pain and releases it.

  • Pinched nerves — Tight muscles press on the nerves that run through them, which can interfere with the free flow of nerve signals and cause pain. Therapeutic massage relaxes muscles and relieves pressure on nerves.

  • Tight connective tissue — Fascia (connective tissue) surrounding muscles becomes damaged due to inactivity or repetitive motion strain. Therapeutic massage provides appropriate stimulation of the fascia, realigning the fibers and restoring flexibility.

Truly a therapeutic massage. If you’re looking for a cheap rubdown, this is not your place. If you want to leave feeling opened up and more flexible, this is your place, – Tom H., Massagebook Review

 Great place for chronic pain, a cross between massage therapist and physical therapist. – Gina G., Massagebook Review

 After a back injury early in 2019 that left me with a herniated disc and chronic sciatic pain, I decided to try PalmLeaf Massage Clinic. They specialize in therapeutic massage treating pain and injuries. After my first massage my sciatica and lower back tightness have gone away. I am able to go to the gym and lift hard 5-6 days a week with no pain. I wasn’t sure what if any results I would experience. Once I had my first massage I knew it was the best therapy for me. My pain was gone and I was able to train again and improve my health and reduce stress. These massages are not only great for pain and soreness but also incredibly relaxing. The ambiance is fantastic and their therapists are top-notch. We had a brief consultation about my pain and injury and tailored a massage to treat the source of the pain. I have tried anti-inflammatory medicine, muscle relaxers and pain medication. They would only take the edge off. Once I had my first massage my pain was gone. 18 months of pain gone in one hour! I now go in twice a month for maintenance. I have a monthly membership and it is worth every penny. If you want to get back in the gym or to resume your favorite activity or even just relieve your pain I highly recommend it! This is a great investment in your health and happiness! – Steve P., Massagebook Review

PalmLeaf is hands down the best practice I have ever gotten a massage at. I love how each therapist brings their own unique style for every treatment session and I always walk out feeling amazing. They take time to understand your goals for every session and the outcome is phenomenal! – Hanna C., Yelp Review

By far, the most masterful and generous massage technicians I have ever experienced. I just got my massage, and now feel like my body has been given new life… They are incredible because they effectively restore the mind and body. Top recommendations for PalmLeaf! — David V., Yelp Review

Hands down the best massage I have ever had. If you’re looking for a luxurious spa experience I would look elsewhere. The place is neat and tidy but not your usual spa. It is located in an office building behind Fifth Third Bank in Buffalo Grove on the second floor. I booked with them based on the recommendation of someone on a Facebook group. Additionally, 90 minutes massage meant 90 minutes. I haven’t felt this good in a long time. I have already booked another massage next week. It will be hard for me to go elsewhere. I highly recommend it. — Ambreen G., Google Review
