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

Robin Hart
LMT, CNMT-O'Fallon location
 
I first became interested in becoming a massage therapist after I witnessed the transformative effects of myofascial release. I was working as a special education teacher with an early intervention program. There was an 18-month-old girl there with cerebral palsy. She was drawn up like a tight little ball, her muscles would not cooperate and she frequently cried with frustration. Our team had the opportunity to learn myofascial release techniques. We massaged her every day for around 6 weeks. Slowly her muscles relaxed to the point that she was able to stretch her tiny body out and propel herself down the hallway on a scooter board! That's when I promised myself I would learn more about massage. I found my passion!

A session with me might include, Swedish, neuromuscular massage, hot stone, aromatherapy, ashiatsu, and reflexology.
