Professional Massage Therapy For Women's Health

I believe each of us are given talents and gift that we are meant to use and share in our lifetime. Sometimes, the hardest part is figuring out what they are and how to use them! Massage therapy has been a perfect career path for me because I, like many women, am a nurturer and caretaker at heart. Sharing this gift has been very rewarding to me.

I believe each of us are given talents and gift that we are meant to use and share in our lifetime. Sometimes, the hardest part is figuring out what they are and how to use them! Massage therapy has been a perfect career path for me because I, like many women, am a nurturer and caretaker at heart. Sharing this gift has been very rewarding to me. Not everyone can work in the quiet environment required in massage therapy. I thrive in the silence of a massage session. I enjoy the deep focus and listening, not necessarily with my ears, but intuitively listening to what my client needs at this moment on my table. I know this is when the deepest of healing can occur for my clients and I respect this time. I enjoy reading all things related to women’s health and aging well. I am inspired when I see women taking care of themselves, feeling well and aging beautifully. If you are looking to make massage therapy part of your health care routine, I look forward to working with you!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Helen on Jul 14
Comfortable from the minute I walked in. Michelle zeroed in on my problem areas and diagnosed the issues in our first session. Love the environment!

I will definitely be back! Michelle listened to my concerns and tailored my massage to meet my needs. Excellent use of pressure and the prices can't be beat! It's easy to relax in such a cozy little atmosphere. My only regret is I wish I would have booked an hour and a half instead of an hour. Highly recommend!

I had a wonderful massage. Very relaxing. Michele made me feel very comfortable. I already booked my next massage for next month. I highly recommend Therapy at Hand for Women.

The best massages I've ever experienced.

This was my first time here and it was enjoyable. I just wanted a massage to relax and it did just that. I could smell essential oils which was soothing and the massage was so relaxing I ended up falling asleep I’d say sometime during the last 10-15min of the service. I would definitely recommend and she is located in the middle of Hartford which for me at least is super convenient.

Michelle is awesome! I really liked that she asked me what I was looking for in a message so that we were both on the same page. She really loosened up the knots in my neck and lower back and helped me to de-stress. It was exactly what I needed!
