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

Paula Tubbs
CPDA, LMT-Maryville location
I am Paula Tubbs, C.P.D.A (Certified Permanent Dermal Artist), Permanent Cosmetics Specialist. I have been certified since 2017 through Susan Church Permanent Cosmetic School, California. I am certified to do all cosmetic tattoo procedures including eyeliner, eyelash enhancement, eyebrows, lip liner, full lip color, areola, scar camouflage, hair simulation, lightening and color correction. I love completing these cosmetic tattoo procedures to help people experience the many benefits of permanent cosmetics. Each of my clients' procedures will be customized to their specific cosmetic request or need. I use three layers of anesthesia so most won't feel much pain. My clients' satisfaction and happiness with their procedures will always be my number one priority.

Please see our services page for a look at some of Paula's work. She is currently available in Maryville for cosmetics and massage therapy by request. Please contact us via e-mail through our online booking system with questions.
