Myofascial Release Specialist

Since 2012 I've had the pleasure of helping people restore movement and correct restrictive holding patterns from injuries, stress and repetitive habits, through multiple massage modalities, specializing in Myofascial Release therapy and self-care education.

Since 2012 I've had the pleasure of helping people restore movement and correct restrictive holding patterns from injuries, stress and repetitive habits, through multiple massage modalities, specializing in Myofascial Release therapy and self-care education.

Myofascial release is a form of bodywork that focuses on muscle (myo) and connective tissue (fascia) by applying sustained pressure into the myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. 

Fascia has an appearance similar to a spider's web.  This webbing system (connective tissue) wraps and connects every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein and organ in your body, head to foot without interruption.  This may help you understand how injuries, trauma or repetitive habits can effect the fascia by pulling and shifting, causing pain, tightness, holding patterns and restrictions.   I help you discover and correct those restrictions. 

 I've had personal experience with recovery from multiple surgeries, injuries and unfortunate life situations where unwelcome physical or mental stress was keeping me from enjoying a pain-free life.  So I understand what you may be dealing with.

I am a great communicator and listener who is patient and determined to help you accomplish your goal in achieving and maintaining a joyful body.

Massage therapy is my second career, following a fifteen year span of sales and marketing positions.  

I'm in my happy place and I want you to be there, too.

I went to massage school because I was bored. I never expected to become consumed by this new hobby and have it lead to such a growing business and fulfilling career, but that is my personality - go all in!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Counseling services

There isn't enough words to describe the wonderful massages, I always get from Machelle. I have been going to her for 5 years and have tried other people but, no one can common to her. Her technique and ability to zone in on all the areas that need that extra TLC is unbelievable. I am a forever client! Alicia
