Jerry Wood Bodywork & Massage
About this pro
Great therapist!! Will use him again for sure. The Thumbtack sure was not user friendly at all. My message was delayed 5hrs before it was sent to the therapist.Jun 11, 2018Verified
He is very skilled! I have had various muscle issues creep up over the past couple of years and he really helped me out. Sadly he moved from Chicago. But when I go out to California, I always schedule a massage with him. Yes, he is that good!Jun 8, 2018
The best massage I ever had . Very knowledgeable,long lasting results!Jun 8, 2018
I found Jerry to be an exceptionally skilled massage therapist. His technique is amazing and he is intuitive as to areas needing attention. I always walked away from a session feeling relaxed and refreshed.Jun 8, 2018
I've been going to see Jerry for massage for about 4 months now and this review is long overdue! When I first found him, I'd started training for a half marathon and my legs and shoulders were killing me. (Just sitting down was excrutiating). Jerry was a lifesaver! He is incredibly intuitive and even if I couldn't articulate the trouble spot he'd hone in on it and work his magic till the knots released and I could move again. He has a cool way of combining different techniques including Deep tissue and Thai massage and he taught me some really great leg stretches. Each time I see him he customizes the treatment based on what my body needs. His therapeutic treatment helped me successfully tackle my first 1/2 marathon. Thanks Jerry for helping me make it!! I continue to see him about every two weeks, and its a great way to decompress from work. I'm hooked...he's a consummate professional and his place downtown is super cute... he makes you feel right at home and you'll leave wondering where's he's been all your life!!Jun 11, 2018

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to take it on a case by case basis since people do not share the same expectation. One person may just want to relax and therefore may not feel the need to go through an extensive physical history. For someone looking for specific results I generally ask questions and do a lot of listening. The goal is to find out what initially caused the problem, decide if massage is going to be helpful and in what manner, and decide what approach to take.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started my education in massage therapy in 1998 in Kalamazoo MI. After completing an intro course I was hooked and when I moved to San Diego shortly thereafter I immediately started taking courses at IPSB. I started working with friends and acquaintances, then worked part time for a chiropractor until leaving San Diego. At the end of 2005 I moved to Chicago to be closer to family and in order to get licensed I needed a few more hours. My previous credits would not transfer to any schools there so I had to start over. I enrolled at the Soma Institute and completed its clinical massage program, obtained national certification and the Illinois Massage Therapy License. In addition to this I have taken a few Thai massage classes. While living in Denver I completed the first 2 levels of Rossiter Stretching, which grew out of Rolfing Structural Integration.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I believe I have worked with a diverse group of people over the 20 years that I have been practicing massage. Having lived and worked in some of the largest cities in America has introduced me to a great array of ethnic backgrounds, body types, physical conditions, etc. I have worked in day spas, chiropractors offices, corporate offices, Whole Foods, and privately.
