Michelle has been helping me recover from an auto injury, on top of muscle tension from general work stress and has been incredible! I would recommend her to anyone either looking for recovery support or just a relaxing massage!

Michelle has amazing hands! She hit every spot that ached and focused on my areas that needed extra attention. She uses this amazing tonic that she concocts that just tops off the massage and kept my muscles feeling loose and relaxed! I will definitely be back:)

I always leave massage sessions with Michelle feeling at ease and well-taken care of. She listens to what I want/need in a particular session, and gently guides my body into a relaxed and calm state. The massage room is cozy and feels very safe and welcoming. Thank you for such great care, Michelle!

Michelle is incredible. The care and attention paid to what I needed was so reassuring. I initially started seeing Michelle because I threw out my lower back and will continue to go because of the wealth of knowledge and skill Michelle offers.
