I am a massage therapist and have had my private practice in the Oak Park Avenue Business district for about 8 years. Currently located in the Medical Arts Building at 715 Lake Street. My signature massage is a blend of Eastern and Western massage & energy techniques. I also offer Energy balancing, Raindrop Technique and more. Check my website: for more info. Gift certificates are available online to print or email!

In addition to my private practice, I have a corporate wellness business that offers chair massage and wellness seminars for companies and special events throughout the Chicagoland area.

We've been open for less than two months and have truly enjoyed our busy, busy life! We are a furniture consignment shop on Oak Park Avenue and have amazing furniture pieces as well as accessories. You just have to visit our store to see the vast amount of items we have to sell! Happy to be part of this Oak Park group!

Thanks Becca. I am also a Mail Chimp user and love it. I switched from iContact which I was using previously.

If anyone is interested in seeing an example, here's my client e-newsletter from September.

Hi everyone, I don't know how many of you do e-mail marketing, but I just signed up for a new service called Mail Chimp and I really like it. I've used Constant Contact in the past and I like Mail Chip a lot better because they have a free option, and you don't end up paying a monthly fee during months when you don't send out any e-mails. So anyway, I just wanted to recommend if you're looking for a free (or very inexpensive) resource for your e-mail marketing.

I am an attorney, getting ready to launch my solo practice. I'd be interested in learning from local business owners about the types of legal services they use and what they look for in an attorney.

Welcome to the group Jason. As I've mentioned to the other new members, feel free to introduce your business. And if there is anyway we can help your business, feel free to let us know under the How Can We Help Your Business discussion.

Welcome to the group Dave and Ashley! Feel free to introduce your local businesses by starting a new discussion or adding your information to the most recent post How Can We Help Your Business.

Chris, feel free to introduce your NPO (which I'm 99% sure refers to "non-profit organization") to the group here as we'd all like to know about it.

I don't actually own a business in Oak Park. However, I run a NPO from my home in OP, so I'm hoping some of what is discussed here might be applicable. Many thanks.
