When I walked in Lake View Bodywork, I was in despair as my primary care doctor and 2 neurologists had told me that I would need surgery for my cervical stenosis. I had weakness, numbing and tingling on my left side. I couldn’t jump, dance without my left side giving out and me falling. Charles put me at ease and I booked 10 sessions of structural therapy. After session 3, all discomfort had disappeared and I was dancing! Working out!
Charles is professional, kind and knowlegeable. I still can’t believe how he gave me back my mobility and ease in movement.”

“Charles is wonderful! It’s a relaxing way to get a lasting treatment! I was a hard core chiropractic enthusiast until he showed me the light. Highly recommended.”

“Hands down best massage I’ve ever had. Charles worked wonders on my back. Anyone in Chicago looking for a good massage should check him out. Not only did my back feel wonderful for the next few hours after the massage, it felt better for days afterwards.”

“I am relatively new to Chicago and fully expected it to take months to years to find a massage therapist with whom I was satisfied. I like my massages to feel like therapeutic muscle and fascial work and not just a superficial back rub. I often find therapists fall just a bit short or end up being a one-trick pony of sorts. I cannot express how thrilled I am that I followed yelp advice and went to see Charles. He is fantastic! He has wonderful energy, is very intuitive with his massage technique, and clearly has a wealth of body knowledge (not just massage, but also structural integration) to draw from to provide a truly excellent massage. I don’t have to look any further. Charles is now my go to massage therapist for however long I live in Chicago. Oh…and his prices are very reasonable.”

“Charles really is as fantastic as everyone says. He is extremely professional and always greets you with a smile. The atmosphere, from cleanliness to temperature to music, is perfect every time. You never feel rushed. He pays the utmost attention to your personal needs. I’ve had massages for anxiety and stress relief, as well as sports massages to help aching parts from being on my feet all day at work, and every time I walk out feeling brand new. I’m also extremely chatty while getting worked on and Charles is an excellent conversationalist, if that’s your thing as well. 🙂 I could not recommend Charles more!”

“I had the opportunity to visit Charles for the first time recently and it was an amazing experience. I had not had a massage in many years, but felt it was time after starting to feel some back pain, which was likely due to time spent on my computer for 8 hours a day. I cannot describe how much better and relaxed i felt after leaving my appointment. I now plan to return monthly.
Also, i agree completely with all the reviews below with regard to Charles professionalism and the cleanliness/comfort of the office.”
“What a great experience! Already booked my second appointment. Professional, relaxing, effective… Very happy!”
– Molly W.
“Charles is amazing! I’m a massage therapist myself and I learn new techniques everytime I receive a massage from him. He’s full of knowledge and has always had an answer to all my questions.”
“Charles is knowledgeable, friendly and a fantastic massage therapist. After my first massage, I was so grateful to my friend who referred me to him. The location is serene and cozy, conveniently located off the Wellington stop. Charles makes an effort to understand your lifestyle to adjust his technique to ensure you are receiving the best massage possible. I cannot wait to go back!”
– Natalie S.
“I have had several massages throughout the years but none as amazing as my first from Charles. He asked several questions before starting and was professional, friendly and very efficient. He worked my problem areas and offered to extend my session to continue working. I could not be more happy with my experience and have already schedule my second appointment.”
– Chris M.
“You are in kind and capable hands with Charles. He immediately sets you at ease and creates a relaxing environment. He is both able to get deep into welled up knots and relax surface muscles. I had been through a stressful move and he worked out a lot of back pain and soreness. Charles is knowledgeable, skillful and has a great presence. Highly recommended!”
