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 star...

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.

One can get a relaxing and quality massage from Michelle. She listens to what is ailing you and will concentrate on those specific areas. She offers suggestions to aid you in work out ideas at home.
