I have to be honest this was my first massage of any kind ever so I don’t really have any basis for comparison but I was really pleasantly surprised by my experience with Michelle. I went a little over a month ago with a gift certificate for a one-hour lymphatic massage. I really wasn’t sure what to expect. My main fear was that she would be a crazy hippie and try to cram a bunch of stuff about “energy” and “toxins” down my throat. I am a true skeptic and stuff like that just makes me want to hurl. I mean, I get that we should all try to take good care of our bodies seriously….

Anyway, Michelle instructed me to drink 2 liters of Smart Water and drink a glass of lukewarm water with lemon every day in preparation for my massage which I did. The massage was very relaxing and wasn’t painful at all. It actually felt really good. I am not sure if it has helped me heal from my surgical procedure any faster but it made me feel better in my mind anyway. I really felt like I was doing something good for my body, although I don’t know if that is a scientific fact. Michelle was actually very down to earth, which was a relief. She has some very interesting ideas and I really enjoyed talking with her. The only thing I didn’t like was having to get dressed and drive home all greased up, but I guess that is something that happens after any massage. Overall it was a good experience and it made me excited to get another massage.
