Kneading Works Massage Therapy 

Dorothy Deemer, LMT - Owner



I have successfully worked with a variety of clients, from those who prefer very deep muscle therapy to those to prefer a lighter touch. I have been massaging full-time in private practice since 2002. 

I received my Massage Therapy Certification from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy, and my Illinois Massage License is in good standing. Also, I am a Professional Member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).

I have learned first-hand how beneficial massage therapy can be for overall wellness. My own experience of receiving massage therapy during a stressful time in life kept me well and I'm passionate about sharing those same benefits with my clients. 
I have been a licensed massage therapist since 2014. I have been trained in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, and Lymphatic Drainage Technique. I received my training at the College of Lake County in 2013. I would be happy to work with you for  your wellness needs. 
This past July 2018, I attended a 4-day training class to begin learning about CranioSacral Therapy.  I am currently certified under the Upledger Institute in CranioSacral therapy 1 and will continue to pursue more training under this modality in the future.
