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

Shelley Gavin
LMT, BCTMB-O'Fallon location
I am Shelley Gavin and I have been a Licensed, Board Certified Massage Therapist since 2006. I am available at the O'Fallon location. The first time I received a massage I absolutely loved everything about it. The effect massage has on the whole body, mind, and spirit is amazing. Whatever situation you are experiencing, physical pain or a stressful life, massage therapy can definitely help you. I will customize your session for your specific needs by using Swedish, Deep Tissue, Stretching, Cupping Therapy, Aromatherapy and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage. Ashiatsu is my favorite kind of massage. I am up on the table using my feet to give you the most relaxing and BEST deep tissue massage ever. I absolutely love learning new techniques that will help you achieve your goals for relief and relaxation. This is your time to focus on YOU! I can be reached at: 618-973-2670
