I have never had a finer massage than the one I received from Michelle. She has a deep ability to listen to her clients and understand their needs and desires, and a wonderful feel to her hands. The amount of pressure was always just right; never too light, never too hard. I had told her about my problem areas, and genuinely felt better afterwards, not just as if I had had a “feel good” massage. She also gave me a good deal of helpful advice about how to keep myself in better shape with respect to various muscle groups. I recommend her highly.

Michelle is a FANTASTIC massage therapist. I see her regularly for table massage and shiatsu. She is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me with several specific issues as well as with overall stress reduction. Her energy, as well as the energy in her office, is very calming and healing.

I’ve tried many chiropractors and masseuses over the years, starting as a US National Track and Field Team Athlete in the 70s and 80s. I’ve had some of the best in the world, and Michelle is right up there with them. Her intuitive hands know exactly what areas need work without so much as wince on my part. She knows without feedback what wants gentle soothing work and what needs deep tissue massage or acupressure. She understands and traces the connections between muscles and nerve pathways. A session with Michelle is more than a treat for mind, body, and soul.

I meet Michelle through a recommendation. I saw her a few times for my back and neck problems. She is very personable, put you at ease right away and is fantastic with her hands. To this day, I could not find better massage therapist than her and as I live too far to see her now, me and back back really misses her though and healing hands. What can I say, she is simply the best.

Michelle was a caring and effective therapist. Clients reported feeling supported, cared for and healing both from recent and long-lived traumas. I personally enjoyed her work and highly recommend her healing hands and presence.

Since fall of 2011, I have experienced severe back and neck pain. I am a high school Spanish and French teacher. Standing and teaching all day can be full of pain and horrible.
I tried pain killers. I tried acupuncture. I tried physical therapy. I saw my doctor regularly. Finally, my dear sister Debra told me to see Michelle Boyle for deep tissue massage.
Michelle has been part of my life since winter 2012. She is with me every two weeks now (every week when pain reoccurs). Michelle is the ONLY pain relief I have found in all these years. Her talent and sagesse are unbelievable. She cares and really helps the patient. I would not be able to LIVE today pain free without Michelle. She is sent by our gods to help us.

Michelle does great work. She can vary her techniques to fit your needs, including using deep tissue massage, acupressure as well as soothing strokes.

She always inquires about any specific needs or issues I may have. This really makes it possible to personalize the massage to fit my needs.

“I absolutely love working with Michelle. I have had some tightness in my body due to scar tissue, and Michelle has been incredible making me feel free again inside my body. She is so exceptionally intuitive and skilled, finding and resolving all sorts of issues. And when I just need a relaxing massage, she’s the only one I turn to.”
