The Rub Chicago is a therapeutic massage practice that works in collaboration with a client’s medical and wellness professionals to create a tailored health plan for clients. Blending massage techniques with stretching and suggested behavioral modification ensures your massage benefits you as long as possible. Incorporated in 2007, The Rub Chicago was founded to extend massage therapy services to the downtown Chicago area and surrounding neighborhoods.
Behind the name: “The Rub” was chosen as a “buzz word” and is descriptive of what we, as Massage Therapists, do. Many people use the terms ‘back rub’ and ‘foot rub’, and some recall Rocky’s ‘rub down’ before a big fight, to reference massage. The company name is an opportunity to educate others that trained therapeutic hands can create true health benefits and that massage is an important viable health care profession.
Our massage studio is not your typical spa experience. The Rub Chicago operates out of The Healing Room, a boutique holistic health office. There are two treatment rooms and the atmosphere is quiet, serene, and focused on treating your therapeutic needs.
To ensure you receive a quality massage, we require our therapists complete a 750 minimum hour training course, higher than the State requires, and hold National Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCTMB).
