What we nurture in ourselves will grow; that is nature's eternal law

Wellness at Work
has grown in so many ways since the company was founded in 1996, some people are now confused by the name. Marilyn Kier, the company's founder, doesn't think the name is confusing at all. "Our services have grown to meet our clients' needs. Wellness at Work is a company that helps clients achieve total wellness. We'll work with you at your office providing on-site corporate massage, at our office with therapeutic massage and work in conjunction with your medical team to administer the prescribed therapeutic bodywork."

Kier, a nationally certified massage therapist who has a BA in psychology, spent 15 years working in employee benefits consulting before she switched gears and became an employee benefit. She founded Wellness at Work after graduating from a 730 hour program at the Wellness and Massage Training Institute.

Over the years, Wellness at Work has grown into a team of certified on-site therapists. Recently featured in USA TODAY and CRAIN'S CHICAGO BUSINESS, Wellness at Work now services more than 25 corporations in the Metropolitan Chicago area.


While growing her corporate business, Kier has also grown her Northfield office, where she and other certified professionals provide a variety of therapeutic massage services to individuals suffering from chronic pain, stress and specific illnesses. As medical massage professionals, Wellness at Work's therapists have taken extensive continuing education and welcome referrals from physicians and other medical practitioners. In the same way, we provide appropriate referrals to clients who trust us to guide them to qualified professionals.

When asked to describe the company's mission Kier responds, "We have always been committed to helping clients achieve total wellness. We will continue to grow in the ways that make sense as we work towards that goal."

When not working hands on, Marilyn Kier is an active member of and National Media Spokesperson for the American Massage Therapy Association. She also maintains memberships in Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals and the Northbrook Chamber of Commerce.
