Michelle is nurturing and compassionate. She has a real gift for finding the root of tightness and stress in the body and releasing it. I leave feeling a deeper range of motion in my body, and a peacefulness and serenity. Visiting her is a real treat.

Great, professional massage. Would recommend Michelle to anyone. Regarding ambience, maybe some candles, scented oils or lower lights would be nice? I am partial to scents. Just a minor detail though---this was one of the best massages I've ever had and I would definitely go back

Michelle is always amazing! She's very good at being able to feel the troubled spots and works to not just relax, but release the muscles so healing can occur. I would recommend her to any and all of my friends!

There is nothing not to love about a massage with Michelle! Being a regular client rocks as she gets to know the spots where you carry all your tension. My husband and I are both clients. Michelle always goes the extra mile to to ensure you leave feeling like a new person. Once you try these gifted hands for yourself, you will surely return for more!
