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.

Using your term Amazing... I think you personally are an amazing person. So personable, kind and caring. I'm not sure I'll be back, but it has nothing to do with your service. I went to my cardiologist today, and he tells me that my edema is not caused by congestive heart failure, which is good to know. Good luck to you and yours. best, gus van sant

Linda is curious—an active listener and learner, sensitive to her client’s individual needs, and responsive. She is excellent at her craft, but moreso, she is an amazing person. I appreciate how respectful, professional, and kind she is. And fun!!

I believe Linda is the best massage therapist I have ever seen. April 2019, I had a bad fall. I hit my head, the right side of my body, bruising it, knocking my jaw, right shoulder & collar bone out of place. Linda performed cranial therapy and massage therapy on my upper body. Linda is very skilled in the area of cranial therapy. Linda opened up energy flows, circulation, & reduced the swelling in my head. Her cranial technique is gentle. Linda is able to concentrate on areas of discomfort, performing cupping, on chest, shoulder, & back areas. The next day I swam 1.25+ miles, I had NO pain. Linda’s communication skills are excellent & professional. Linda is an active communicator. I have been seeing Linda McGill for quite a many year now. I am very grateful to be able to continue to receive massage therapy, cupping, and cranial therapy with Linda McGill. I hope you will have the same positive experience as I do. Thank you, Linda, for being you, and for doing all that you do to help people who come to you for help. Janet, Retired Runner
