Karen Heyden, BA LMT CKTP

 


Welcome to Concierge Massage and Healing!  I offer a wide range of healing modalities, including hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is an exciting method for a life change.  You will find my site interesting and informative. It is designed for the sight impaired.I specialize in post-cosmetic surgery lymph massage.  You can schedule your post cosmetic surgery sessions before you have your surgery.  Please read the Lymphatic Drainage Massage page for further information.I am a Master Cranial Release Technique Practitioner, one of a few in the Metro East/St. Louis area. I have attended Master training re-certification courses, including with Dr. Doreste, DC.I am one of only a few Certified MyoKinesthetic System practitioners in the Metro East. I have attended the four day Master class in Kissimmee , Florida in 2016 and again in 2017, constantly honing my skills.I offer a wide range of services, including dry cupping, CranioSacral Therapy (CST), Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT), and Swedish massage.I am a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP), having completed the required courses and passing a three-hour on-line exam. I offer 3 different types of Kinesio (that is the brand name) tape.   I have the new Kinesio cotton tape developed by Dr. Kase.  It is a gentle, one-use tape for babies, sensitive skin and fragile skin.

I keep my massage room fragrance and scent free for your comfort. If weather permits, I can open the windows and we can listen to the birds sing, crickets chirping or cicadas,  or the soft sounds of rain. I use organic grape seed oil, food for your body! I can add Young Living essential oils to your massage to enhance your experience, at no extra charge.

I have expanded into the use of CBD oil and CBD massage lotion during massage. CBD (cannabidiol) is a wonderful product which treats pain and anxiety.  The product  meets the national guidelines for less than 0.03% THC.  I will not use CBD without your written consent. Many of my clients suffer from arthritis and they appreciate the use of CBD infused lotion and oil.

I am certified in hypnotherapy.  I specialize in food portion, food choices and food control.   There is a basic test to see if you can be “hypnotized”.  Hypnotherapy allows you to change certain specific behaviors such as over eating, portion control and food choices. Please call when you are ready to commit to that specific change in your life! It takes 3 sessions to truly anchor the change in habits and it is most affordable. Here’s to the new you!

I will be happy to help you formulate a plan for your health and wellness.  You will benefit!

You know that you are ready to heal-an appointment is just a phone call away!

I am a member of the Illinois Massage Licensing Board, serving my third term. The board members are on the front line making sure that massage remains a safe, professional, and viable healing modality. Currently, the board is addressing the issue of human trafficking and the practice of unlicensed massage. I am also licensed in Michigan and Missouri.

My  website is totally accessible for the sight impaired.
