Special Announcement

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: me@michellesmassagetherapy.com

Michelle Kingston
LMT, CNMT--Maryville Manager
 
Hello and thank you for reading our team page! I integrate massage modalities such as neuromuscular therapy, ashiatsu, and reflexology to offer pain management and stress relief massage for chronic and acute conditions. My passions outside of massage are my family, natural healthcare/fitness, and music. I am currently studying to become a licensed professional counselor so I can learn to integrate talk therapy with bodywork--focusing on releasing trauma in the body. I will be starting my internship in the Fall (delayed from Spring 2020 due to COVID closures). My schedule will be limited as I finish up my degree, but I will return with more hours after completion of requirements. If you would like to book with me, I am available at either location and can be reached the fastest via e-mail: me@michellesmassagetherapy.com or by cell: 618-975-6840. I am also a certified Ashiatsu instructor with Deepfeet--the original source in the U.S. for barefoot massage training. You can see my schedule of classes at deepfeet.com.
