Now that WWM has closed our Gold Coast location, we want to remind Chicagoans that we are still open and serving chair massage clients in the Lincoln Park area in our WWM chair massage station! WWM is open daily from 12-8pm. That’s right, seven days a week (excluding holidays).

WWM has been inside the giant Lincoln Park Whole Foods Market since the store was first opened in 2009.   We are grateful to Store Team Leader, Rich Howley for his support and welcome to his Lincoln Park store.

Many of our WWM Gold Coast massage therapist are still available at the WWM Lincoln Park chair massage station. See below for our usual weekly line up. And for the next few weeks, Najat will be on vacation and back Mid March. Until then Bernardo, David M., Andrew and Patty and David K will be subbing for Najat. And once she is back, Patty and David K will not have regular shifts the Lincoln Park WWM booth, but will be subbing from time to time.

On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, I spent a few hours working with Najat, one of our long time WWM massage therapists, dismantling and cleaning up the space that has held our chair massage station for many years.

Since I first made the announcement that WFM Gold Coast Store Team Leader had asked us to close our booth, I’ve had many calls and emails from concerned clients that are sad and worried about our booth closing. Sadly, WWM had no control over whether we would leave the WFM Gold Coast store. If it was up to WWM, we would have stayed open at this location, but like many Chicago institutions, our time was over. WFM Gold Coast leadership wanted to bring more cafe seating into the space we occupied.  As Najat would say, C’est Le Vie.

What took 15 years to build, we knocked down in hours!

I’ve heard wonderful stories from clients that have visited us in the Gold Coast location for many years. One client credits his newfound health and heart improvement on regular chair massage by WWM massage therapists. He said his doctors are surprised at his recovery and tell him to keep the massages up! Another client told me she has used our massage services for 11-12 years and worries she will not be able to travel to our Lincoln Park location for massages once we closed our booths.

No more WWM at WFM Gold Coast-WWM has left the building!

We apologize to customers that found our Gold Coast location convenient and are unable to travel to our Lincoln Park location. WWM would be happy to reopen in another location in the River North or Gold Coast or Streeterville area if we can find a good arrangement. We have looked at other potential locations, but thus far, have not had any promising offers for another space for our booth.  Unfortunately chair massage is not lucrative enough for us to afford the high rent of Gold Coast office space for a chair massage station. Our partnership with WFM, which has long been a company committed to whole body and wellness, has been a natural relationship. And one we happily continue with WFM Lincoln Park!

For those clients of our WWM chair massage booth in the Gold Coast, we say thank you for stopping by and getting massages, sharing your lives, your pain, your joy and your stories through the years. You have touched each and every one of us emotionally, as we have touched your muscles and helped relieve your tension and deal with stress!
