Words cannot express how Dr Aguilar and Giedra have improved my quality of life.
I have Torticollis ,since 2008, the only treatment is Botox Shots every 3 months to stop the pain and improve the movement of my head to the left.
I went to Helping Hands in May of 2014, as the Botox shot was helping with the pain but not so much the movement of my head.
Dr Aguilar & Giedra listen to you, do not assume that they know best.
The combination of seeing Dr Aguilar & Giedra every week for several months,has kept the pain away and the movement of my head improving.
I am now going every other week.
When I went for my Botox Shot in Dec (as it had been 4 months) my Dr took one look @ me and said–no shot for you…you are in great shape..
Thank You, Dr Aguilar & Giedra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I visited Helping Hands looking for a massage to relieve headache, cervical and back pain. Luckily Giedra was able to see me same day! Upon arrival I took note the office is clean and welcoming. Giedra was there to greet me, I filled out a simple form and we headed back to the treatment room. I talked, she listened after a few minutes she was ready to take control. Giedra is a strong woman! She is both knowledgeable and instinctive in her practice. I received a thorough 60 minute deep tissue massage. I can say, thankfully, I did not wake this morning with a headache. I am sore (i swear I kept warm Giedra) but that is to be expected. She worked magic on all the areas that have been pinned up. I feel great and cant wait for my next appointment.
After our session she suggested I receive a consultation from Dr. Aguilar which in my mind was to be expected (I too am in sales). She noted his expertise in headaches, cervical and back pain. I am a skeptic but being of a holistic mindset…I decided to listen to what he had to say. Dr. Aguilar is nice, he is educated and explained everything with patience. I do plan on getting a second opinion next week and if all works out I will be using Helping Hands for several of my therapeutic needs.
Happy Holidays to the Helping Hands Staff.
Came in with a back problems, got a deep tissue massage. All I’m saying is wow it really helped me! Thank you Kasia!
After a long search for a massage therapist I like, I found Geidre a few years ago. She is the owner and does a fabulous job. Always runs on-time, gives an awesome full-body massage with the right amount of pressure and I feel better when I leave. I have been using her services for several years on a regular basis. The facility is clean, modern and comfortable. Setting up appointments is easy and If I need an additional appointment I just e-mail her and she is great getting back very quickly.
I have also used her and an additional massage therapist who works for her in my office as an ’employee incentive’. The staff really enjoyed the 10 – 15 minute neck and chair massages. Geidre gave us a great promotional package that we used to promote the event in a conference room, including sign-up sheets and overviews. Over 40 employees enjoyed the 10 – 15 minute in-office massages.
I started to go to this practice for a shoulder problem. I couldn’t lift my right arm up. After 6 session with Dr Aguilar, my arm is now back to normal. No more pain or discomfort. I highly recommend this place to anyone with any problem. The staff is very friendly and they know what they do!
Back in 2012 ,I had a cervical spinal injury. Someone recommended me to Giedre, a massage therapist. I was so happy to find her. After few sessions of her massages I was seeing a big difference in my neck. She did professional, therapeutic massages and also recommended I see her husband Dr. Aguilar, a chiropractor, for adjustments. Now I’m regular client of theirs and see them at least once a week. I would highly recommend Giedre and Dr. Aguilar to everyone! Our health is the most important thing, which many of us don’t realize, until we have a problem. Thank you so much Helping Hands Massage & Chiropractic team for your wonderful work.
I came to Helping Hands with a online deal and have been there twice now and have since made 2 more future appointments. Ila managed to relieve the pressure in my neck and shoulders to where I was able to turn my head to the left and not feel a strain. That’s a big deal for me. Thank you.

I have received massages for over 25 years, but my massages with Ila are from the most experienced and educated massage therapist ever. She managed to manipulate not only my tight neck and shoulder muscles in a gradual, methodical manner but also to work my joints so that the entire process improves my overall well being. (I’m 72.) What’s more, I don’t have aching muscles afterwards. She is especially knowledgeable about working the neck which most therapists avoid due to lack of proper training.

Having gone to many chiropractors over the past thirty five or so years of my life, Dr. Aguilar has been a true gift to helping my neck and lower back issues. Giedra is the best deep tissue massage therapist I have gone to and I highly recommend them both for the upkeep/maintenance of a healthy, aligned body! Everyone needs their talented help!

I have been going for almost 2 months now and my back and hip pain are all but eliminated. What a great experience I had. The massages, electro stimulation treatment and physical therapy did the trick! All of the staff are professional, friendly, and helpful. Thanks for helping me get rid of the limp I have had for almost 2 years! 🙂

Can’t say enough good things about Helping Hands. Dr. Aguilar is terrific and incredible patient-oriented. He manages the business himself, so communication is a breeze. Any issues, whether medical, scheduling, or billing are all directly handled by him. He will work with your insurance to get you the best treatment options available, and even help you order at-home equipment at no cost to you! There is no doubt that he puts his patients before his bottom-line. He is an excellent listener, and his dedication to his work and his patients is very apparent. His adjustments are performed with finesse, and I have found relief with my chronic back pain.
Giedra, the massage therapist, is incredible as well. After the first massage I received from her, I realized that her skills were something special. Her precision when working muscles is unbelievable. Never have I received another massage that felt as therapeutic as Giedra’s always do. To sum up, she is REALLY good. Best of all, the massage is covered by insurance because it is therapeutic.
The office is really nice on the inside. Don’t be fooled by the outside, as you might mistake the office for a service entrance. It has a homey feel on the inside, and they have gone to lengths to make it a nice place to wait, with comfortable seating, water, and chocolates (although honestly I’ve never had to wait as I am always seen immediately.)
All-in-all, a great place! Thanks Dr. Aguilar and Giedra 🙂

After injuring my shoulder and neck (lots of pain), a friend sent me to Giedra for massage therapy. After a number of visits with her the pain was gone. This was much more effective than prescribed medication. She is very knowledgeable about anatomy and knew where and how to work on the area. I would very much recommend her.

Hands down the best chiropractor and massage therapist I have ever encountered! I’ve had back problems for as long as I can remember, so I’ve seen my fair share of massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, etc. Dr. Jose (chiropractor) and Giedra (massage therapist) from Helping Hands are the only two I’ve stayed with for many years! They truly go above and beyond to help you heal. Can’t rave enough about these two – would definitely highly recommend! Posted By: Anna V. _____________
Great massage. Very relaxing environment. I have had back and neck issues and this is one of the best places to find relief. Will be back. Posted By: Ruth G. ____________
My husband bought me a local deal for two massages on the internet. I had not heard of this [place]. But to my surprise it is one of the nicest places I have frequented.. The massage was way above average and it is in a very nice location with very easy close parking. I went on one of the coldest days in Chicago history and the room was clean and warm. I had a lady named Gierdra and she was excellent. I can’t wait to go back.

Helping Hands Massage has an excellent practice and very professional therapists. I’ve been to several local places, but their massage therapists have excellent touch and right amount of pressure. I’ve had massage from both Suzanna and Giedra…both equally great. I highly recommend going them a try next time you’re thinking massage.
