Massage is a luxury for some, but a necessity for most all who invest in their whole self.

I grew up in Tumwater, WA.  I attained my AA degree, then graduated from Seattle Massage School in 1989.  I've worked in a physician owned physical therapy clinic, a chiropractic office and my own solo practice for 10 years,  then opened and operated my own medical spa for the next 10 years in Covington, WA.

I sold my spa to work with my husband who was a family physician practicing functional medicine. We worked and learned together for the next 8 years until he passed in 2016.

Looking to start life over in a simpler slower place, I moved to Great Falls, MT and began working as a functional medicine health and nutrition coach, and now massage therapist.
I get to do what I Love and Love what I do.  Massage and natural health coaching allows me to serve God by empowering others with the knowledge and skills I have been blessed with.

Michelle did an amazing job! It was my first massage and was a little worried that it would be awkward, but there was nothing awkward about the whole interaction. She gave me several possible resources to help with my jaw tension. It was a wonderful experience, 10/10 would recommend!

I'm a 6-foot 200-pound occupational athlete. Wear and tear on the body is just part of the job. I started to feel better immediately and the full range of motion I regained the next day is all pain free. Thank you Michelle !

She knows what part of my body to work on.

The pressure and comfortability were amazing. I loved how well she worked my troubled areas that most therapists just fly over.
