Profound deep relaxation & restoration in only an hour? 
That pain in my neck can be reduced or erased? 
I can know my body better, and walk away with a little more peace with my life? 

Through massage & bodywork, that I hope that every client sees the role of therapeutic bodywork in their health-care toolbox. I approach a massage session making sure to provide every client with a deeply restorative experience, as well a specific, therapeutic treatment in order to restore function (and reduce pain). 

I use Lymph Drainage, Polarity Energy Balancing Thai, Swedish, Ayurvedic, and Orthopedic Massage to reach those goals. I also offer Self-Massage & Fascial Release instruction 1-on-1, before or after your session. (Should you choose that add-on!)

I offer sessions at the WCC Health & Fitness Center in Ann Arbor, and at my private office in Depot Town, Ypsilanti. In my book, taking really good care of your body, your creativity, and your emotions is one of the most radical things one can do.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Coaching services

Miriam was informed and professional. She made me feel comfortable and her work definitely helped.

I wanted a different type of massage than you gave me.. Your work seems to be mostly myofacial. I want lots of oil I wanted a massage. It was not a massage. I asked for lots of warming the tissue and you did not do that - and you barely used any oil. I wanted my hands and feet massaged and you did not work on them.

Wonderful value for a superb massage therapist. She is creative and adaptive to changing needs of the client. I'll miss her when I move out of state.

Miriam really took the time to cater to my specific needs and her mood wasn't about making money but truly, genuinely wanting to do what's necessary to help me overcome my difficulty.

Miriam found areas that needed attention and I left feeling much more relieved and relaxed then when I came in. She also showed me some simple things I can do at home to work on those areas on my own!
