Lori offers Therapeutic/Orthopedic and Rehabilitation/Injury Recovery Massage

 

My own personal health and well-being interests started as a young teenager. I suffered from severe chronic back, knee and neck pain that brought my dream of becoming a dance teacher to an end. Chiropractic, massage therapy, physical therapy, meditation and nutritional supplements quickly became key components in my healing journey. Years of my own personal experiences and empathy for others inspired my career in massage therapy.

 

After growing up and starting my family in Sussex, WI, I moved to Lockport, IL in 2004. This is where my massage career began, working independently and also for three doctors of chiropractic, one of which specialized in kinesiology and sports medicine. Through integrative care our team was able to provide preventative and rehabilitative therapy, including my clinical massage techniques through customized therapy plans. Committed to advancing my knowledge of orthopedic conditions, I began studying my own soft tissue dysfunctions leading to my passion of specializing in Clinical Orthopedic Massage Therapy. The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) has partnered with the Academy of Clinical Massage to launch the massage profession’s first orthopedic and clinical rehabilitative massage specialty certificate program. I am currently in the process of completing this program.

 

As a 2010 Graduate of Cortiva Institute - Chicago, I earned Academic Excellence and was the recipient of the 2009 Cortiva-Woodridge Founder’s Scholarship. I have a strong foundation of Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, and Pathology. I am competent in advanced therapeutic massage techniques such as Deep Tissue, Fascia Therapy, Trigger Point, Positional Release, Muscle Energy Techniques, Stretching and Hydrotherapy.

Anita Odekirk, Yoga Instructor

Whether teaching Yoga, Let Your YogaDance®, or facilitating SoulCollage® or other creative and fun classes, Anita's intention is to provide the kind of class that encourages each individual to be at ease in their body, mind, and spirit, free of judgment and open to fun!

 

Anita Odekirk received her 200hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher certification studying under Coby Kozlowski and Jennifer Reis at the Kripalu School of Yoga and Ayurveda.  She has studied with Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band during an 8 day Bhakti Immersion and with Jack Kornfield (Best selling author and teacher of Buddhist Mindfulness practices) at a week long meditation and mindfulness retreat.  She continues to enhance her knowledge and skills by attending yoga workshops throughout the country and participating in Bhaktifest West and Midwest.

 

Anita has a passion for dance and music that prompted her to attend a dance workshop at Kripalu where she was introduced to Let Your Yoga Dance®, an energetic and joyful dance of the chakras.  She pursued that passion and received her LYYD certification and continued to grow these skills by also getting certified to teach LYYD for special populations, allowing her to teach to those who may have Parkinson's, arthritis, MS, or other challenges.

 

Anita is also a facilitator of SoulCollage® and completed her training studying with Audrey Chowdhury, MS, ATR-BC.  SoulCollage® is a process of creating, over time, a personal deck of unique, collaged cards from found and personal images for the primary purpose of self-exploration, self-acceptance, and soul-tending.  It's a fun, engaging, deep and illuminating process.
