Michelle's new O'Fallon location is at 1 Eagle Center. Michelle's Massage Therapy will remain open in Maryville, IL. Any expiration dates on special deals will be extended by 2 months (due to covid closure) and all certificate values will be honored past expiration. Gift cards do not expire. Our couples massage increase took effect for appointments made after 4/22/2021 due to the increased time coordinating on our schedules and setting up the room. Our individual session increase will take effect 1/1/2022.

Please note: Masks are not required to be worn during services. Please do what makes you feel the most comfortable.

As always, we thank you for your continued business and support.

Hello and thank you so much for reading our team page! You can contact each of us directly by selecting the "more/contact" button below our bios. I specialize in deep tissue using neuromuscular therapy and ashiatsu. Other specialities include reflexology, aromatherapy, Swedish/relaxation, and hot stone or bamboo massage which can be integrated into your session. I enjoy spending time with family, music, travel, and teaching Ashiatsu part-time to massage therapists (see more tab). I recently graduated from Lindenwood University and am currently in the licensing process for professional counseling. Once licensed, I will be working with those in need in the community and toward a clinical license. I hope to one day integrate bodywork and talk therapy to help people reach their physical and mental wellness goals.
