Karen Heyden BA LMT CKTP


Welcome to Concierge Massage and Healing!  Thank you for visiting my site. Due to the Covid 19 virus, I have temporarily closed my office. In the best interest, safety and comfort of my clients, I will remain closed until the virus has significantly subsided.
I have temporarily disabled the on-line booking.
If you are interested in post-cosmetic surgery lymph massage, I sincerely apologize but I am unable to schedule anything at this time.
For more information on all my treatment plans, please keep reading.

I offer a wide range of healing modalities. Call or text me at 618-696-6411, I will be happy to discuss them with you. If you choose to use another massage service, please ask them if they are licensed and have professional liability insurance. This is for your safety during the pandemic.

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. Please go to the Cranial Release page to read about its immediate benefits, including reduction in tinnitus, headaches, “brain fog”, anxiety, etc. I have priced it to be affordable for you and your family.

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. Please go to the page to learn about the wonderful benefits of MYK.

I offer a wide range of services, including dry cupping, CranioSacral Therapy (CST), Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT), and Swedish massage. I am a Professional 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 hear the birds sing, crickets chirping, the cicadas, or the soft sounds of rain. I use organic grape seed oil or fractionated coconut oil for your massage- 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 and drink 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! Please call 618-696-6411 and start achieving your goals. I accept cash, checks, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, and Square.

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.

I have professional liability insurance through both AMTA and ABMP.  I offer healing pet therapy for small animals, hence the ABMP insurance.

My  website is totally accessible for the sight impaired.
