I have seen over fifteen RMTs since returning to Canada in 2009 and Michelle is without a doubt the best RMT I have met to date. For the past three years I have had mystery shooting pain in my left glute which no one could work out, as in a handful of other RMTs, a chiropractor, a few physios and acupuncturists. Within 5 minutes Michelle worked out the issue, gave me great tips on how to address it and naturally, gave a great massage. Yesterday I went to my first vinyasa yoga class after a three year absence and it was pain free. Her tips also improved my whole yoga practice. I would without a doubt recommend everyone to Michelle. Thank you, Michelle!
Just great, I've had a sore neck and back for over a year now, and within 3 sessions with Alison, it has felt better than it has in a very long time, very pleased so far.
I have seen many different massage therapists in Vancouver, and never really been sure exactly what I was looking for to keep me coming back to the same person. Instead, I'd book appointments based on the time-slot that worked best for me, regardless of who the therapist was. With Michelle, my ambivalence is gone. Michelle is adept at building rapport and nurturing a relationship with her client. She uses that bond of trust to get to the root of what is going on for me physically, involving me in the process and educating me about her assessment of my pain and strain. Michelle is professional yet personable, sensitive to my mood and needs at any particular appointment. She is also extremely knowledgeable and eager to share that knowledge, designing a treatment plan that extends out of the session into exercises and suggestions for everyday life. At the same time, she is never disapproving or judgemental when I don't get around to doing the exercises she's prescribed! During a session, she skillfully uses a variety of techniques and is always happy to answer questions about the treatment. Whether I need a gentle session or something more intense to soften a really stubborn and painful spot, I always leave feeling a that a weight has literally been lifted off my shoulders. Since I started seeing Michelle a few months ago, the pain and stiffness I have been dealing with for over ten years has improved to the point that it's unusual for me to feel it at all, rather than the other way around. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a massage therapist.
I'd describe my appointment as absolutely great and fill fabulous after second treatment. Thank you very much for your help and great work .See All
