“Penny’s dry technique trumps any sports massage that I’ve had to date, and I’ve been a frequent experimenter with different massage styles and massage therapists for over ten years. While her work is ‘deep-tissue’, it’s truly much more of a muscle re-orientation. Expect to feel therapeutically more in-tune. Go to Penny if you need intense relief and/or regularly want your body to be kept in proper working order. You will feel like a younger, fitter *you* when you walk out of the door.”

My Mother and I heard about Penny through an associate friend. We both received our first treatment on the same day. I am an energy healer myself but I have been very aware for some time now that my Mother and I needed something deeper to release our confined bodies. My Mother is 90 yrs. old with very excruciating low back and hip pain. I was amazed that my Mother was able to comfortably endure Penny’s unique massage manipulations. The day after our massages all I could think was how grateful we both are to have found Penny. The benefits of the session are very obvious. I would call it life-changing and remarkable. I feel the physical and mental difference. I am telling everyone about this best-kept-hidden-secret massage of Penny’s. My digestion is better. All that crud is moving out. I feel less bloated. I am a little tired but invigorated at the very same time. All I can say is COOL! Thank you, Penny!
“Penny has a professional manner accompanied by deep knowledge of massage therapy topped off with strong hands and a good heart. To be on her table is to feel that you are in good hands. Her techniques, while not always comfortable, get great results! Penny is a gift to the profession.”
“I’ve had many massages in my life and I had heard a lot about Penny’s methods so I was curious as to how it compared to my past experiences. The answer is, it didn’t compare at all – I had never experienced this before. Penny asks questions, is participating, engaging and communicating without being intrusive or losing the relaxing nature of the massage. You never feel like you are just another body on a table getting your back rubbed. I actually felt taller when I walked out of the room! Penny is completely committed to what she’s doing and that is to be respected and sought out. I highly recommend Penny and her unique approach to massage.”
“I have had massages from numerous excellent professionals over the years, and Penny Chelios’s massage technique is by far the most therapeutic, long-lasting, and relaxing I have ever experienced. By not using lotions or oils, Penny manages to apply just the right pressure so that the muscles are both relaxed and reinvigorated. I highly recommend Penny’s unique methods of massage!”
“Penny’s approach to massage is unique. She always explains what muscles are being worked on and how I was probably overusing them in my daily life. Having just had my third child, I needed a lot of help. I have never had a massage as amazing as the deep-tissue massage Penny delivers. I always feel amazing following a session and I desperately try to find time to book the next one!”
“I have found that Penny’s massage method is thorough and based on the premise that while massage should be relaxing and ‘feel good’, it should also be therapeutic and improve circulation, release toxins within tissues that cause soreness (or stiffness) and improve skin integrity and elasticity. Penny’s massages accomplish all this and more. Penny also educates on proper self massage regiments that improve strength and mobility.”
“Compared to other massages I have had, I found Penny’s massages to really loosen up both muscles and joints in the back. When I look at the long-term therapeutic nature of massages, I cannot help but notice that I feel my benefits from Penny’s massage for many days beyond each session. My favorite part of Penny’s massages are the varied enjoyable and comfortable tractions of the joints and vertebrae. It almost seems more ‘medically’ therapeutic in nature instead of superficial and temporarily relaxing. I don’t get downtown often enough. But, I do look forward to scheduling another session with Penny whenever I return.”
“Hi Folks— I highly recommend you go to Penny Chelios for your massage needs. Penny’s unique deep-tissue massage method protocol is the best I have ever experienced. She is personable, professional and has the clinical experience to ensure your body and mind are inline with balance and focus. Penny is indeed the best!”
“Although I am not a frequent receiver of massages, I have experienced massages at spas in the U.S. and abroad and as part of chiropractic/rehab treatment. Penny’s was the first massage I had that did not incorporate oil into the massage. I was a bit skeptical at first, but my wife had gone to Penny in the past and had recommended I go, as well. I found the technique refreshing and the experience both relaxing and impactful. Often, massages are done at a superficial level, but the combination of deep muscle massage with dry application that Penny utilizes transcends beyond anything I had experienced in the past. I also found it quite refreshing that Penny didn’t endorse frequent massage. Her recommended frequency for me (every few months) is actually something I could contemplate.”
“Regardless of my particular physical malady on any particular day, and it could be anything from a deteriorating left hip, stenosis of the lower spine, rotator cuff issue, or a combination thereof, Penny’s massage was somehow able to bring true relief to my body. Equally impressive was the advice and counsel Penny generously gave on how best to follow-up on each session. Small wonder that so many sought Penny’s expert services and often made getting an appointment very difficult.”
“I feel that Penny’s massage methods are able to provide more benefit in an hour than any other massage modality I have experienced in the past. The techniques she uses provide significant relief from stiffness or pain, yet it does not create soreness afterwards. It is helpful to know that each manipulation serves a specific purpose and Penny makes that very clear in the context of her work.”
“Thanks to your amazing massage I am moving with freer ROM and no pain! I will keep up the maintenance and hope to continue to feel as well as I feel today! You’re the best, Penny! Thanks so much.”
“When I met Penny I was intrigued by what she explained to be the Chelios Method. Being in the fitness industry for over 25 years plus, I was very familiar with fascial release, but I must say the Chelios Method goes beyond your typical fascial release. After being on Penny’s table, I experienced for the first time ‘TRUE’ freedom! I have had many ‘massages’ but this is the first authentic release of fascia I have ever encountered, allowing my muscles to be truly free of compromise and pain. I recommend the Chelios Method to all my clients. Thanks Penny for all your knowledge and expertise!”
“Penny Chelios is one of the best Massage Therapists I have ever experienced! Most of my massage sessions are for treatment of sports-related soreness or minor injuries and strains, and for me, Penny is expert in her treatment of sports-related conditions. I especially like that she is so proficient at administering dry massage, without the use of excessive oils or lotions. I have not found this offering from many other massage therapists. I can heartily recommend Penny to any friend.”
“I can truly recommend Penny as an outstanding deep-tissue massage therapist. She is extremely knowledgeable and physically able to give a great treatment in this most demanding specialty. Over the years I have had many massages, including Rolfing, and rate Penny as one of the best.”
“I have had the privilege of receiving a deep-tissue massage from Penny Chelios on multiple occasions. I originally came to Penny assuming I would receive the same spa-like massage that I have received before in the past, but I did not. Before starting, Penny took a few moments to get to know me, my weaknesses and my problem areas. As I complained of a stiff neck, as well as sciatica pain, Penny showed her true passion for and knowledge of massage by describing how my posture and daily activities affected those areas. The deep-tissue massage that then followed was AMAZING! I have never had a better, more rewarding massage! Although, at times, it was somewhat uncomfortable, it was tolerable, mostly enjoyable and exactly what I needed. I have recommended Penny to friends and family and will continue to do so. I hope to make another appointment with her soon!”
“I have received massages from Penny and they stand out from any other massage that I have ever received in the fact that I feel like a different person in my body! This isn’t a bad thing. Her deep-tissue techniques work so well that I have lost all back and neck pain for at least a week following her massage.”
“To succeed in a spectacular fashion you have to be spectacularly unusual.”
“Penny’s deep-tissue massage techniques are unsurpassed, in my opinion. The benefits received are much more effective, and longer-lasting than any I have received in the past. Penny also does a fantastic job of explaining the anatomy and physiology behind her techniques, and thus why they work. Penny has helped me successfully complete three Chicago Marathons, and I will not visit any other massage therapist at this point – on the few occasions that I have, I have been very disappointed. I have told Penny many times that I would be willing to pay double what she charges me. That is the truth. A few years ago I was involved in an auto accident, and had to undergo cervical spine surgery for a two-disc fusion. Since then, I have always suffered from some amount of discomfort in my back, neck, and shoulders. Penny’s deep-tissue massage therapy has helped me to live a much more comfortable and normal daily lifestyle. I am also now able to participate in all the athletic endeavors that I did before I incurred so much damage as a result of just living. I owe Penny a debt of gratitude. I have referred many a friend to her, and will continue to do so.”
“I have received massages all over the world (including the vaunted Orient) and I can honestly say that I have encountered no better massage therapist than Penny Chelios. She is a knowledgeable creative innovator in her field. She delivers what a client’s body NEEDS, as well as what a client wants. She gives great advisements on maintenance of benefits received. And, I feel profoundly better after every session I have had with her.”
