Danny Odroniec, Head Massage Therapist
When we talk about our staff being like family, we really have no choice with Danny. He IS family…that’s right, he’s our biological baby brother. We had always been impressed by his balanced demeanor and caring nature, but we had no idea what a gift he had. . As an assistant many years ago, his shampoos and scalp massage became LEGENDARY, and we all learned that Danny had that healing touch you cannot teach. Encouraged by incessant client feedback, he saved every penny and put himself through massage school. To say Danny wowed his instructors (and us) is an understatement. A teacher once shared how happy she was for Danny that he not only has such an exceptional gift, but that he found it. We could not be more impressed…we could not be more proud. Today, Danny is a “Therapist’s Therapist.”
Since graduating from The New School for Massage, Bodywork and Healing, Danny has continued his education to master Aveda techniques in hot stone therapy, became certified in Lomi Lomi massage and is certified in many Pevonia specialized body treatments. He has become one of the most sought after therapists in Deep Tissue and Sports massage. Since Danny joined JM’s spa as a full time massage therapist in June 2004, JM’s spa has won many Citysearch Editorial and Audience awards for massage therapy- most notably being Best Healing and Best Relaxation Massage, Best Day Spa and Best Massage! And don’t forget being named Best Chicago Day Spa by Allure Magazine, too. Just listen to client reactions such as “One of the best massage therapists I have come across in years…” and “In an ideal world I would see Danny every week!”.
Danny combines his traditional holistic approach with contemporary ideas and techniques to deliver profound results and relaxation. Extreme kindness, sensitivity and professionalism only heighten what will prove to be one of your best massages ever. You will not want to wait to book your next appointment.
Danny works Friday and Saturday.
