"I first visited Therese over a year ago on the recommendation of my Pilates instructor. I have scoliosis and am in pain everyday. Things got a lot worse last year when I was suffering from a bulging disc. I had to give up golf (a passion of mine) and all exercise, except for gentle stretching because of the pain. I am not a pill taker, but finally had to start anti-inflammatories. Then I went to Therese.

I consider her my angel who through her "body work" has changed my muscle tone to where I have less spasms and pain in my back and better quality of life. I am golfing and exercising again and my pain is manageable.

Therese is a true professional in her field. She can "read" my muscles and knows what I need. She has a kind spirit, positive attitude, always cheerful and a true pleasure to be with. I highly recommend Therese at Massage Movement."

About Massage Movement LLC
& Therese Rog

Therese M. Rog has been Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork since 1993.  She is a member in good standing of the American Massage Therapy Association, and is licensed to practice Massage Therapy by the State of Illinois.  She first established her practice in 1990, and has been at her current location in Barrington since 1993, where she is also a member of the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce.  Therese is an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oil, which she uses in her practice to enhance the massage experience.


Over the past  20 years, Therese continues to perfect Progressive Response Massage TherapySM, her unique and effective style of reading the body through intuitive and energetic touch.  This is not the kind of rote massage delivered by many chain organizations.  Rather, Therese has an acute appreciation for the individuality of each client and each independent session.  Her broad base of loyal clients have enjoyed the benefits of her massage for years, citing the marked progress in the health and flexibility of their bodies over time.


Therese's Progressive Response Massage TherapySM directly addresses the elasticity of muscle, and the capacity to attain muscular range of motion while releasing the postural holds that hinder flexibility.  Muscles are comprised of millions of fibers, not all of which are heading in the same direction.  Progressive Response massage addresses the flow and direction of muscle tissue, as well as the way in which it lays on the skeleton; her massage moves as much of the muscle as possible in the direction nature intended.  This direcly influences the elasticity of the muscles, thereby improving one's flexibility, range of motion, and posture.


Therese works with men and women from all walks of life, all of whom enjoy a myriad of creative and physical activities, and come to her to address different conditions and issues.  So while no two people are alike, she finds her most dedicated clients to be proactive in taking responsibility for their health; patient in their understanding of massage as a process; persistent in receiving regular massage; and practical in accepting that what was once difficult becomes easy with practice.  To learn more about Therese Rog's views on Massage Therapy, we invite you to connect to her following articles:
