Here at Sorely Kneaded, you are treated with respect and dignity. These are just two important factors necessary in beginning any healing process. While known for her deep tissue work and Trigger Point Release Therapy, Maéva's massage style is considered integrative, in that several modalities are used to fit your needs. It is rare that (unless requested) you will experience 'just Swedish Massage'.
After many years as a successful international sales manager in Silicon Valley, Maéva Braxton (formerly known as Deborah) left her job in 2001 to pursue her dream of being more available for her young children and of becoming a massage therapist. She has been practicing massage for 19 years. Her training includes educations from schools in Palo Alto Ca, Cupertino Ca. and most recently, an additional 600 hours of education through New School of Massage Bodywork & Healing here in Chicago.
Although she is trained in Swedish, Sports and Clinical Deep Tissue Massage, her specialty is Trigger Point Therapy.
Her massage experience includes 2 .5 years for Chiropractic Sports Center, Mountain View Ca and a 3 year contract at both Apple Inc. (Cupertino Ca,) and FileMaker (Santa Clara, Ca). She has maintained a prosperous independent business since 2005 in Palo Alto CA and Mountain View Ca. before moving to Chicago in winter 2016.
