TESTIMONIALS New Beginnings Therapeutic Massage - Peru, IL

The best massage I have ever received!!! It was like she was completely tuned into where all of my problems were. Trust me when I say my back is messed up. I will recommend this wonderful lady to anyone. She KNOWS what she is doing.

Julie Palmer

I received a massage from Jessi Mini today, it was amazing! She concentrated on all of my problem areas and was very professional. I would recommend her to anyone!

Kelly Phelps

Absolutely loved my massage! One relaxed Mommy right here!

Mandi Ponsetti

Tara is a true professional massage therapist that has helped me with specific issues as well as maintenance/relaxation massages. Her infrared sauna is a great complement to the massage as it relaxes the mind and body, making the massage more relaxing and effective. Also, her kinesio-taping allowed me to keep training by limiting motion in the affected area to promote healing and limit pain. I highly recommend New Beginnings.

Josh Witzman

My first massage…I’m hooked. It’s amazing when you can’t even fathom how you went your ENTIRE life without having one, after one visit. My shoulders feel so, normal…so relaxed. It’s been a few days and I still can’t believe how they feel. My shoulders were so tight before, the only way to explain it is now that they don’t feel that way, I imagine I was walking around with my shoulders up to my earlobes all the time. Tara was wonderful. Can not wait for my next appointment!
