Finding a career in massage was a true blessing for Michelle. She found her passion. Her passion is what drives her to perform the best massages and Fasciablasting sessions deliverable. Michelle's knowledge and skill come with continuing education and working alongside doctors, yoga instructors, and chiropractors. She has a unique approach to massage by incorporating the results oriented style of her medical massage training and her spa experience of pampering. Michelle uses specific techniques, such as Myofascial Release, Active Release Techniques, Bodyreading and Assessment techniques, Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue massage and Swedish massage, not to mention studying Fascia feverishly for over a decade while learning these techniques!

 Michelle understands that everyone needs reassurance that their therapist is Certified. Michelle graduated from Bryman College of Hayward, Ca with Honors in Massage Therapy. She also continued her education directly after graduation, as learning the fundamentals of massage aren’t enough for strategic and advanced care of her clientele.

Michelle has Certificates in Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, Nueromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Massage for Fibromyalgia, Advanced Sports and Fitness Massage. The most recent addition to Michelle's technique repertoire has become Expert knowledge with FasciaBlasting utilizing the Fascia Blaster® by Ashley Black. Though this tool is new and revolutionary Michelle has been studying fascia for 10 years.

Lead Massage Therapist

Working at Massage Envy since 2012 I was promoted to Lead Therapist for my leadership tendencies, moral upkeep, reliability, attendance, and eye for detail, not to mention my clientele following was highest for over a year out of 22 other therapists. I never told any of my clients until it posed necessary for them to know, I choose to stay as humble as possible. I can never learn enough, so being a Leader has helped me help more people by showing I can't do everything on my own.

Fasciablasting

What can I say! This tool Ashley Black has created, has given my business LIFE! It is restorative. It is healing. This tool makes my business pop now! I can't believe a tool actually works!! I have used so many different tools over the years and this is by far THE BEST! Let me tell you it is harder than doing massage by far, but to see the results, sometimes before my very eyes, is just ever so worthy of my time spent! You have got to try this thing, because it REALLY works! Since all my studies on fascia for myself and others, I am convinced this is revolutionary, and is just about to go flip some people over with awesome results, no matter the reason to start using it. So what are you waiting for?!

Namco Bandai/Corporate

My experience for a few years with this gaming company has given me insight as to how difficult life at a desk is! I wouldn't give my full time but gained lots of experience with the small amount of individual time served to these amazing hard working people! I was hired typically because someone saw I would be a great fit with what they had at work...usually they were right, as I can be mobile and they were very flexible with me and I with them...even gained 4 loyal clients after two years of working and had to say goodbye because I moved too far! I went to this place and many other small and very large companies, either once a month or once a week for half days. It really was a great fit and can be again if we can work out a schedule! Give me an email and we'll se if we can work out a sweet deal for your co-workers, employees or just yourself! Oh, I never do chair massage, I always bing my own table and can accommodate most environments.

Spa

Massage Technician/Therapist

I know, whats the difference right? Well, actually to me it is a huge difference! I consider myself more a massage therapist and bodyworker. A technician of massage follows protocols for everyone exactly the same. While working in the spa setting after graduation, it was good for experience, money, and timing. But it wasn't very personal nor exciting after doing the same thing over and over. It did teach me the value of these services. Oils like lavender or eucalyptus actually work! Dry skin brushing is wonderful for everyone and feels amazing, and temperature alternations are huge benefits. Thanks to the Spa world, I got my taste in how to incorporate it into my business now, and I think you would love the way I do it, not to mention my price tier!

Chiropractic

Massage Therapist

I worked for two different Chiropractors at the same time. One was extremely good and the other just ok. Both, thank you Lord, treated with respect and courtesy. (Its harder to find than you think!) One paid well, and the other, not so well. But both taught me valuable lessons and showed me how to treat people with more than just massage techniques. They actually guided me more towards therapy vs. massage therapy. This is why people say my touch feels more like a physical therapist and massage technician combined. Well, good, that's exactly what I was going for! Thanks to 4 years of working with these chiropractors, I now have knowledge in my database to ensure I do not get tired of learning more about my clientele's needs and desires.

Very knowledgable and professional

Michelle is amazing and so is the treatment. I was curious to see if Fasciablasting actually helps with cellulite and it does. I have seen a difference in my legs. Its not going to happen overnight however, it does work.

Just finished my fascia blast consultation with Michelle. It was awesome!! After the blasting I can see huge change in my legs. She also gave me personalized blasting techniques to use at home between appointments that will maximize my results. I've been blasting since November getting results on my own, but nothing like the visible improvement I see after one visit with Michelle. Getting ready to schedule my next appointment! Thank you Michelle!

Michelle is highly skilled at her craft. She takes time to learn about you and what your body needs. She is amazing, and I can't wait to come back!!
by Ashley on May 31
Michelle was awesome! She listens to what you tell her is going on with your body and has really great techniques to work on the problem areas while still finding a way to make it relaxing. I am moving to another state and she will be a huge loss in my life during that time! I highly recommend Michelle. She would be my first thought if someone mentioned they needed a massage!
