Mary Szklanecki, LMT
Therapeutic Massage Therapist
Mary, born and raised in Glendale Heights, Illinois, knew she had a calling for massage therapy as a young child when she would help her mother feel better for diabetic-related leg and feet pain.
Mary chose to pursue a two-year degree at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, rather than go the typical expedient route through an independent massage school. This decision allowed her to gain a broader and more thorough knowledge base of the human body and all the areas that are prone to dysfunction and pain. That decision would prove to be prescient because during her time there her sister was diagnosed with cancer and Mary selflessly applied the skills that she was acquiring to help manage the pain that was a result of surgery.
Helping both her mother and sister led Mary to focus more on the therapeutic and healing aspects of massage. She specializes in soft tissue manipulation, the movement of muscles, tendons, and other connective tissues to release tightness and dysfunction, which allows her to best assist each client with their own individual needs. Her strength is in communicating with her clients on a therapeutic level, adjusting pressure and utilizing various techniques to reduce tension, relieve pain, and promote tissue healing. Besides using therapeutic techniques such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy, Mary also enjoys utilizing Swedish massage, using calm, gentle, even strokes for her clients that are seeking relaxation and stress-release.
“Massage therapy can relieve, to one degree or another, physical stress and discomfort, muscular pain, emotional stress and tension, limited range of motion, and that overall feeling of malaise. All without drugs or invasive procedures”.
