Fern Massage is no longer taking appointments.
I’d like to thank all my clients who made the last year running Fern Massage so lovely. Read on for more details!
When I started up Fern Massage in September 2018, I knew it would be temporary. I offered the lowest sliding scale I could afford on purpose, to fill a gap I experienced in the massage world. I wanted to serve a community like me – queer, and without the resources to afford nearly any massage in the city. Fern started at a time in my life where I had very low living costs and plenty of energy. I have been happy to spend my weeks providing a space for primarily my queer, trans, and nonbinary community to destress.
However, I now find myself in a new season of life. I’m planning for the future with my wife, and my body has been asking to take a break from the physical labor of massage. It is time for me to transition to something new.
It has been an honor to serve my clients. I will always keep an eye out for your names in the small world that is the Chicago queer community, and put in a good word when I can. I’d be so grateful if you did the same! I will almost certainly be offering different services/workshops/opportunities on Chicago Queer Exchange in the future, so I’d love to see you again if I have anything relevant to offer you.
If you need recommendations for affordable, queer/gender friendly massage therapists in the city, I have a few! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get their contact info.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
ps: If you know of anyone who needs a babysitter/nanny, please send them my way!
