Injury Focused Care
Michelle is a native of the Tri-Cities area, having been born in Kennewick. She focuses her practice on injury-specific conditions, including:
- Bell’s Palsy
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Knee injuries
- Migraines and chronic headaches
- Plantar fasciitis
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Sinus drainage
- Sprains and strains
Natural Healing ServiCes
She combines massage therapy techniques with other natural treatment alternatives to better aid the body in healing itself naturally. In addition to therapeutic massage, Michelle also offers:
- Deep tissue massage
- Fascia blasting
- Gua sha
- Myofascial release
- Trigger point therapy
- Young Living Essential Oils
Injuries occur for many reasons. They can occur suddenly, or they can develop over a longer period as the result of natural wear and tear or aging. Massage therapy can assist the body in relieving pain and stress associated with the injury itself, as well as aid the healing process.
Michelle loves having the opportunity to help people regain their health, strength and mobility. She says, “I had a teacher once say, “Do what you love because you will never work a day of your life.” Following that advice, Michelle says she sought a profession that would allow her to help people every day.
Massage Promotes Healing & Health
Massage therapy can help individuals recover from injuries faster, reduce pain and even prevent injuries. In addition, medical studies have shown that massage therapy can improve focus and performance. That’s a plus for athletes, but it also provides the same benefits for non-athletes who simply want to improve their health and well-being.
Although Michelle focuses her practice on injury-related conditions, she treats all patients who want to promote a healthier, more relaxed, stress-free, pain-free lifestyle.
Improving Cardiovascular Health
Research shows that therapeutic massage can improve cardiovascular function, reduce inflammation and promote cell regeneration. Therapeutic massage can also increase both dopamine and serotonin levels in the body and reduce cortisol levels.
Reducing cortisol is important because long-term exposure to high levels of cortisol – a naturally occurring “stress” hormone – can cause damage to the body’s major organs. Cortisol production can increase blood glucose levels, and alter important metabolic processes in the body. Overproduction of cortisol can promote:
- Coronary disease
- Digestive problems
- Focus and memory impairments
- Insomnia or other sleep disorders
- Weight gain
Therapeutic massage can help decrease cortisol production and its accompanying side effects. It is a recognized effective treatment for a wide range of physical conditions, and can help reduce stress and promote overall wellness.
