Karen Heyden, BA LMT CKTP


Welcome to Concierge Massage and Healing! Thank you for visiting her site.

Perhaps you are are looking for a solution for your pain, health issue/concern, or you would like to experience a relaxing massage with a trusted, licensed and insured massage therapist. Whatever your reason, Karen invites you to take your time and read about the different healing modalities. You will find it interesting and informative. For your convenience, she offers online booking for appointments for Mondays and Fridays. Please call for all other days/evenings/weekends appointments.

She is a Master Cranial Release Technique Practitioner, one of a few in the Metro East/St. Louis area. She has attended Master classes for certification renewal.

She is also one of two Certified MyoKinesthetic System practitioners in the Metro East. She attended the four day Master class in Kissimmee , Florida in 2016 and again in 2017, constantly honing her skills.

She offers a wide range of services, including dry cupping, CranioSacral Therapy (CST), Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, and Swedish massage.  She is a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP), having completed the required courses and passing a three-hour on-line exam.

For your convenience, she sells Young Living Essential Oils and has many in stock for sale. She is also able to special order oils.

She keeps her massage room fragrance and scent free for your comfort.

She has expanded into the use of CBD oil and CBD massage lotion during massage. CBD (cannabidiol) is a wonderful product which treats pain.  The product she uses meets the national guidelines for less than 0.03% THC.  She will not use CBD without your written consent. Many of her clients, who suffer from arthritis, appreciate the use of CBD oil. You may benefit, too.

She encourages you to call or text. She 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!

She is a member of the Illinois Massage Licensing Board, serving her second term. She is 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. She has helped to close down unlicensed massage businesses, many of them suspected of human trafficking violations.

Her website is totally accessible for the sight impaired, one of the few in the country.
