UPDATE 5/21/2020: We miss you and are looking forward to having you back--but not all at once! We will be slowly opening June 1st, 2020 with limited staff accepting staggered appointments. Due to the recent closure, liability, and the nature of our business, we have restructured to now have all independent contractors at both locations. We are now accepting appointments for June online or by contacting your therapist or esthetician directly (see website and team page for contact info.).
The temporary hold on gift cards during our restructure is now lifted and you can use your Michelle's Massage Therapy gift card, special deal, or package with anyone in our network at either location until December 31st, 2020. After this date, all gift cards and packages purchased through Michelle's Massage Therapy may be redeemed with Michelle in O'Fallon or anyone at our Maryville, IL location. Any expiration dates will be extended by 2 months and all certificate values will be honored past expiration.
Due to the closeness of our work, an additional consent form is required for you to review and sign prior to your appointment. Please view it before your appointment to avoid having to cancel last minute. You may bring in a signed copy or sign one when you arrive.
Please note: Masks and appointment times are a "recommendation" under guidelines for businesses opening and not a requirement. Masks are optional for both clients and staff so please do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. Our goal is for everyone to feel relaxed and get the much needed relief from stress and tension. If you prefer a staff member who wears a mask, please note in your appointment request. If you have any questions, please e-mail: email@example.com
Hello and thank you for reading our team page! I integrate massage modalities such as neuromuscular therapy, ashiatsu, and reflexology to offer pain management and stress relief massage for chronic and acute conditions. My passions outside of massage are my family, natural healthcare/fitness, and music. I am currently studying to become a licensed professional counselor so I can learn to integrate talk therapy with bodywork--focusing on releasing trauma in the body. I will be starting my internship in the Fall (delayed from Spring 2020 due to COVID closures). My schedule will be limited as I finish up my degree, but I will return with more hours after completion of requirements. I am also a certified Ashiatsu instructor with Deepfeet--the original source in the U.S. for barefoot massage training. You can see my schedule of classes at deepfeet.com.

Anatomy and Physiology has been something that interests and drives my passion for massage therapy. I have been a massage therapist for about 6 years now and through that time I have accumulated many skills. At this time I am attending Physical Therapy Assistant school so my knowledge of the body grows everyday. Some modalities I specialize in are deep tissue massage, swedish massage, trigger point therapy, stretching, sports massage, myofascial release and hot stone massage. I can accommodate and adjust my pressure for just about anyone going from very light touch for some to deep muscle relief for others. My general goals are based upon your request but with some help of my guided expertise to alleviate muscle soreness and dysfunction. Some things I enjoy in my free time are making art/jewelry, hanging out with my cats and experiencing the outdoors.

My mother has bulging disc and massage helps relieve her pain. My cousin has fibromyalgia and massage helps relieve her symptoms temporarily.

Diane's interest in massage was sparked during her nursing career in which patients loved a back massage from her! She had been practicing as a Registered Nurse for over 25 years. She worked in a nursing home and then a hospital, and then joined the Air Force and became commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in March, 1987. Throughout her 20 year tenure in the Air Force Nurse Corps, Diane worked as a clinical nurse, flight nurse, in quality risk management, disease management, and finally, at her last assignment, before retiring at the rank of Major, worked as an operations officer in aeromedical evacuation at Tanker Airlift Command and Control Center, Scott Air Force Base, IL.
Following her retirement, she continued to work as a clinical nurse in medical centers in St Louis. In 2010, she pursued her interest in massage by attending The Body Therapy Center, where she completed her certification the following year. After she became licensed, she continued to work as a nurse in a clinic while working part-time as a massage therapist up until 2014, when she became a full-time massage therapist in a chiropractic office and now here at Michelle's Massage Therapy. Diane is available at the O'Fallon location.
I first became interested in becoming a massage therapist after I witnessed the transformative effects of myofascial release. I was working as a special education teacher with an early intervention program. There was an 18-month-old girl there with cerebral palsy. She was drawn up like a tight little ball, her muscles would not cooperate and she frequently cried with frustration. Our team had the opportunity to learn myofascial release techniques. We massaged her every day for around 6 weeks. Slowly her muscles relaxed to the point that she was able to stretch her tiny body out and propel herself down the hallway on a scooter board! That's when I promised myself I would learn more about massage. I found my passion!
A session with me might include, Swedish, neuromuscular massage, hot stone, aromatherapy, ashiatsu, and reflexology.

Hi, I am a board certified, licensed massage therapist. I graduated from the Healing Arts Center in 2006. For over 15 years I worked in the corporate world before moving to massage full time in February of 2019. Seeing how the daily stresses of an office job can take a toll on a person's body has inspired me to specialize in relieving those tired shoulders, neck, and back. I combine many modalities in each session. Client favorites include hot stones, ashiatsu barefoot massage, cupping therapy, trigger point, and doTERRA aromatherapy. If you're in search of a deep tissue massage, I definitely recommend you booking an ashiatsu barefoot session with me. Client favorites include hot stones and Myofascial Release. Cupping Therapy and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage available March 2019.

Hello! I graduated from The Body Therapy Center and School of Massage. I am certified in Myofascial Release and have additional training in assisted isolated stretching. Prior to graduating massage school, I became interested in reflexology and received a certificate of study in St. Louis, MO in June, 2013.
I became interested in reflexology when I practiced on my grandson's feet. He had grand mal seizures when he became sick with a cold or flu. They were so intense and long lasting that he had to be put on oxygen. Since the sessions on his feet, he hasn't had another seizure. Our whole family is reaping the benefits of reflexology. I can incorporate reflexology into your massage session at no additional charge.

Healing work is my profession and my life’s path. My style is customized for each client and incorporates a blend of modalities including Swedish, Lymphatic Drainage, and Reiki.
Lymphatic drainage is a light pumping technique that works to move stagnate fluid throughout the body. Relieving pain and pressure in joints, quickening the recovery of muscle tissue, and allowing new fluid to facilitate healing.
Reiki is a light touch, deeply relaxing energy healing technique. Using a series of still hand placements, Reiki works with the body’s energy flow to bring stillness and rest. I feel everyone can benefit from Reiki, especially those dealing with anxiety, stress, grief, depression, and irregular sleep.
