Linda McGill

Specializing in Oncology Massage and Manual Lymphatic Drainage

I have been practicing massage since 2010 and have been located here in Bellevue since 2015. From my years spent in a spa environment I strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable massage experience and from my time at a chiropractors office I also want my touch to be therapeutic.   I believe that if I combine the two to achieve a relaxing AND therapeutic massage I have done my job.

I have been practicing massage since 2010 and have been located here in Bellevue since 2015. From my years spent in a spa environment I strive to provide a relaxing and comfortable massage experience and from my time at a chiropractors office I also want my touch to be therapeutic.   I believe that if I combine the two to achieve a relaxing AND therapeutic massage I have done my job. 


These days I mostly provide oncology massage and manual lymphatic drainage but I do also offer treatment and relaxation massages as well.  A lot of the time you can expect your massage to be a blend of many different modalities depending on what you need most.  I am also studying to become a certified aromatherapist so expect exciting things in the future with that!  

In addition to my love of massage and aromatherapy, I also have wonderful husband (who teaches high school at Bishop Blanchet) and a very cute and very furry English Angora rabbit.  I have recently taken up a 'drop spindle' habit and am learning how to spin his fur into yarn, very fun!  He provides hours of entertainment :)

Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to send a message or call if you have any questions.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Aromatherapy, or Yoga services

by Marta on Sep 18
Linda is such a skilled practitioner, she knows exactly what your body needs, but also welcomes and listens to your feedback. I highly recommend her services.

If you have a sore and twisted body from gardening, pruning trees and from stress in your life, then a 75-minute massage with Linda McGill is the place to go to for mental and muscle relaxation; it all works together. I get a 75-minute massage from Linda before having chiropractic adjustments; and I find it very beneficial for Linda's work to complement the work of the chiropractor. I am having to adjust the rear-view mirror to a higher position in my car after my massage with Linda, because I am sitting up better for driving; definite benefits of my massage with Linda. Linda McGill is professional, courteous, conscientious to the needs of the client.

Lind was very professional and explained the process and what to expect during and after. She is very kind and has good energy.

By far the best massage ever. Went in with such a stiff back. Came out feeling awesome. Love her.
by Joyce on Apr 15
Very professional and well organized. Really good massage. Got rid of a lot of discomfort I had in my hip. Not the actual sciatica. That is still there. Did develop some crampy pains in my leg. Am looking forward to my next massage as I see this as a process to getting back to normal.

Linda was very caring and informative in working with me post-mastectomy. Her massage techniques improved lymph drainage and helped me become more comfortable with the new normal for my body. I highly recommend Linda, especially for anyone dealing with issues post-surgery.
