UPDATE 5/21/2020: We miss you and are looking forward to having you back--but not all at once! We will be slowly opening June 1st, 2020 with limited staff accepting staggered appointments. Due to the recent closure, liability, and the nature of our business, we have restructured to now have all independent contractors at both locations. We are now accepting appointments for June online or by contacting your therapist or esthetician directly (see website and team page for contact info.).
The temporary hold on gift cards during our restructure is now lifted and you can use your Michelle's Massage Therapy gift card, special deal, or package with anyone in our network at either location until December 31st, 2020. After this date, all gift cards and packages purchased through Michelle's Massage Therapy may be redeemed with Michelle in O'Fallon or anyone at our Maryville, IL location. Any expiration dates will be extended by 2 months and all certificate values will be honored past expiration.
Due to the closeness of our work, an additional consent form is required for you to review and sign prior to your appointment. Please view it before your appointment to avoid having to cancel last minute. You may bring in a signed copy or sign one when you arrive.
Please note: Masks are a "recommendation" for businesses opening and not a requirement. Masks are optional for both clients and staff so please do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. Our goal is for everyone to feel relaxed and get the much needed relief from stress and tension. If you prefer a staff member who wears a mask, please note in your appointment request. If you have any questions, please e-mail: email@example.com
Diane's interest in massage was sparked during her nursing career in which patients loved a back massage from her! She had been practicing as a Registered Nurse for over 25 years. She worked in a nursing home and then a hospital, and then joined the Air Force and became commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in March, 1987. Throughout her 20 year tenure in the Air Force Nurse Corps, Diane worked as a clinical nurse, flight nurse, in quality risk management, disease management, and finally, at her last assignment, before retiring at the rank of Major, worked as an operations officer in aeromedical evacuation at Tanker Airlift Command and Control Center, Scott Air Force Base, IL.
Following her retirement, she continued to work as a clinical nurse in medical centers in St Louis. In 2010, she pursued her interest in massage by attending The Body Therapy Center, where she completed her certification the following year. After she became licensed, she continued to work as a nurse in a clinic while working part-time as a massage therapist up until 2014, when she became a full-time massage therapist in a chiropractic office and now here at Michelle's Massage Therapy. Diane has hours at both the O'Fallon and Maryville, IL locations.
