Name and Credentials
My name is Keith DeStefano, I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in the Chicago Area. I am Nationally Certified in Massage & Therapeutic Bodywork (NCBTMB). I am a certified member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP).
I attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago. I started out in the Acupuncture program and ended up in the massage therapy program.
I have had great success helping people with different conditions by using massage. I learned several different modalities such as; Tui Na (a Chinese Massage), Thai (on a table), Trigger Point therapy and Shiatsu. I recently learned the Hawaiian massage Temple Style Lomi Lomi which is a very effective massage treatment modality. Lomi Lomi is a spiritual relaxing massage which uses massage oil but is also therapeutic by using deep joint rotations for sports oriented people.
I Studied at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. I learned several different types of massage and have several classes toward my Acupuncture License (in the future).
I believe in not only treating the branch cause of a problem but also treating the root cause so the problem will go away permanently.
Why I do what I do
I believe that if you are in pain you should try every tool available to relieve it and not just "live with it".
I have had my share of injuries, aches and pains which were not only unpleasant, but they got in the way of my daily activities. I always thought that there had to be somebody to help with my problems that did not require drugs or surgery. This lead me on the path of alternative therapies. Now I find it very satisfying to help those that thought there was no help.
A little bit about me: hobbies, family, interests
I enjoy my relaxing time with my wife. If we can travel to an Island and relax in the sun near an ocean, it is even better.
