Michelle immediately showed she cared about my discomfort and wanted to do what she could to help alleviate it as much as possible. She asked appropriate questions first and then went to work in addressing the problem. I went back the next day for another treatment. She gave more thought about the problem and worked differently, and effectively, and gave suggestions to address the pain. I would highly recommend her.

Michelle took time to talk to me to ask questions about this particular situation. She listened intently and the massage was perfect. The office is welcoming, orderly, and warm. I needed water, there is was. There are oils to purchase so instantly you can have the oil she used on you if you wish. Amazing experience.

Michelle is fantastic! Always focuses on whatever needs attention or will simply provide a therapeutic experience when needed. If you're going to be a new client always make sure you communicate what you're looking for. It's the best way to give her or anyone a fair chance to meet your expectations.

Michelle Renar is the most gifted and professional massage therapist I know. She has a very healing touch. When I arrive I'm tense and achy with tight muscles from hours at a computer. When I leave, it's as if a switch has been flipped - my tension has evaporated and my body feels relaxed and nurtured. Highly recommended!

Michelle has been my massage therapist for years. No matter what pain or injury I end up inflicting on myself she's always ready for the challenge and I can honestly say I've never found anyone as knowledgeable or talented as she is (strong too!???????? that's very important). Treat yourself to an hour with Michelle. You won't be disappointed (just not on Fridays at 11. That's when I go ????)

Perfect sensitivity to overall level of pressure, which muscle groups needed what level of pressure, and apportionment of time on different areas of the body. You are a genius.
