Urban Oasis has approximately 40 massage therapists on staff offering a wide range and style of massage therapies.

All of our Therapists are certified graduates of accredited schools and licensed in the state of Illinois. Most have graduated from local massage therapy schools but we also have therapists who are from, and were trained in, China, Chile, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines and Thailand.

Each Therapist is unique and has developed his or her own style and approach to bodywork.

If one isn’t exactly to your liking, please let us know and we will try to better match your needs with the skill set of another Therapist.
