Anita Pappas Koziol, Licensed Massage Therapist
Anita Pappas Koziol graduated from Cortiva Institute in Crystal Lake in 2012. She received the Valedictorian Award, graduating with a perfect 4.0 GPA, and the Presidential Scholarship from Cortiva. She has since received the award of "Best Massage Therapist of 2013" in Lake in the Hills.
Anita believes that massage can help heal a person from the inside out. Massage should not be a luxury, but a necessity for everyone's health and well-being. Each individual can achieve optimal wellness and be able to enjoy their activities of daily living to its fullest potential through the use of massage and various other key programs. There are so many things that massage can do, that are still unproven. She truly believes that as research continues to be done on the positive effects of massage, that we will all be blown away by its capabilities. Massage can give a person a new lease on life. Through sessions formulated for their individual needs, clients are able to do things that they once did again.
Anita became a massage therapist because of her desire to help others. She has always helped people in just about every job that she has held in the past. Anita believes it is an incredible, personal satisfaction to know that you can change a person's life with the touch of your hands. Her mission is to restore and maintain the health of as many people as she can in her lifetime as a Licensed Massage Therapist.
She is a wife of 15+ years and a mother of 4 beautiful children ranging in age from 8 to 22. She grew up in Chicago, and moved to Belvidere with her family in 2004. Her first love was being a teacher. She received her Special Education Teaching Degree in 2000 from Northeastern Illinois University. She began teaching 6-8th grade at a Therapeutic Day School the day after she graduated from school. She has also taught 7th grade Special Education in Algonquin. She absolutely loved being able to help others. Anita says that the greatest satisfaction was seeing her students achieve something that they thought they couldn't. She left teaching to be a stay at home mom for her 3 younger children. She decided to go back to school several years ago and massage therapy is the path that she chose. Anita says that becoming a massage therapist has been a very rewarding profession and one that she sees herself in for a very long time to come. Anita is glad that she made the decision to change career paths as she believes that she can still help all those in need in a very fulfilling manner.

We have been in Belvidere since June of 2017. Our goal is to have a full Wellness Center some day. A place that focuses on healing the mind, body and soul through natural methods and techniques. A place where people go to feel better, to look better and just be better from the inside and out.
