    Client Testimonial

    My wife scheduled a massage for me as a gift. Massage wasn't something I had ever thought about and basically went because she purchased it for me. Now I maintain regular appointments with Michelle and she has helped me through a shoulder injury. i really believe massage keeps me in shape for my intense running and training schedule.
