About Our Staff

Audrey Reardon is a passionate licensed massage therapist who studied at the National Holistic Institute in Studio City, California. There she was able to reinforce the connection she has always had with the mind and body through all different types of modalities. She takes pride in Myofascial and Trigger point therapy along with Shiatsu, Thai, Deep Tissue, energy work, and relaxation massage. Oak Park has always been her home, and she is very much looking forward to being an asset to the community in a positive, intimate and connected way. She believes every session can be a journey that takes place between therapist and client tackling the issues that are giving discomfort that day, while providing a treatment plan for prevention. Dr. Gerou and Audrey work very closely so that your treatment plan can be worked on together, allowing you the best results possible. She hopes you can leave her hands feeling safe, hopeful, and rejuvenated.
