About Michelle

Registered Massage Therapist, D.O.M.P.

Please note: Effective April 1, 2022, Michelle will be accepting new clients for Osteopathic Treatments. Existing clients may continue to choose between Massage Therapy or Osteopathic Treatments.

Michelle’s massage and osteopathic practice is centered on rehabilitation of acute and chronic conditions as well as deep relaxation. Osteopathy treats the body as a whole with the knowledge that our bodies are inherently able to, wanting to, heal themselves. Integrating everything she has learned in osteopathy school in her massage practice allows her to better treat her clients. With each session she empowers clients with knowledge of their conditions and choices available to them. This is important in the mind-body connection that facilitates positive change.

Michelle enjoys being active with her two children, whether walking in nature, swimming, cycling or playing pickleball with the family. Michelle also enjoys reading, travelling and taking courses in order to continue to learn and better serve her clients.
