I focus on what you want from a session. To help you, I use a whole body approach in the search for solutions. Instead of looking at the "problem area" in isolation, I try to find connections and missing pieces in the puzzle. My go-to tools for both orthopedic and medical massage sessions include myofascial release, manual lymphatic drainage, scar tissue therapy and a solid foundation in anatomy to guide my touch.
"...Michelle focused on loosening the (mastectomy) scar tissue which she found to be extremely tight. It started to take my upper torso turn which was the cause of the pain in my hip and knee as well as the tightness under my left arm and upper back. After just one massage, I was much better..."
"I highly recommend Michelle not only for her skill as a massage therapist but also because she is such a caring, concerned individual that wants to promote healing, and strives to relieve pain and discomfort. And I have to add, she is always laughing, make me laugh, and uplifts my spirits."

"...After years of seeking any and all help for my pain in my lower back and hips, it was resolved by Michelle's method by massaging scar tissue acured upon years of injuries..."
"After gall bladder surgery last Aug I went this week for my first session with Michelle and the results were amazing. Scar tissue heals slowly, but results were felt immediately. I recommend this therapy soon after surgery. It is amazing!! Thanks Michelle!"
"I am tearing up writing this. After my thyroid cancer treatment, thank you for teaching me what I need to do for my scar/lymph issues. This was absolutely priceless."
"I was seeking yet another treatment for my year long hip pain when I called Michelle. I had tried anything I could think of while dodging western medicine surgeons. Michelle’s website mentioned scar tissue and since I felt that a 30 year old scar might be adding to the pain on my pelvic bone and in my hip, so I decided to explore the possibility. One hour treatment later, the relief was amazing. I faithfully performed my homework and returned for a second treatment. After that, I walked away pain free for the first time in 360 days. Michelle’s knowledge, curiosity, communication & skills are outside the box of my quest that took me to a General Practitioner, Acupuncturist, Chiropractor, Massage Therapists, Reflexologist and hundreds of inflammation remedies and pills. I will continue with my homework and check back with Michelle on a monthly basis as I continue to heal and build strength. I am grateful, happy and feeling good. Don’t give up until you’ve consulted with Michelle."
