The Michigan Massage and Wellness approach

We’re not a spa, we’re into fixing things.  What things, you ask?

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Don’t really have anything that you think needs fixing? No worries, you can also slip into a blissful nap as Brenda works her magic with a therapeutic massage or Ashiatsu session. Because let’s face it, walking around punching walls because you’re so stressed out is frowned upon (and nobody has time for a broken hand)

We use a combination of modalities such as Ashiatsu massage, Fascial Stretch Therapy, Lokte Method and more to not only fix what’s not working, but also get you moving and feeling better.

We don’t believe in a ‘one massage fits all’ cookie cutter approach as everyone’s bodies are different and have different problems so they require different solutions.

We are confident that when you choose Michigan Massage and Wellness the personalized service and attention to details is what has kept clients coming back since we opened our doors in 2004.

Brenda has been with Michigan Massage and Wellness since 2018, shortly after she graduated Irene’s Myomassology Institute.

She is our goddess of all things relaxation and therapeutic. Her massage (both therapeutic and Ashiatsu) have been described as “laying on a cloud filled with puppies and sunshine”. And we would be lost without her.

Her background as a chiropractic assistant helps her work with the pain problems in her clients, and her soothing approach will leave you wondering what took so long to get in to see her.

When she’s not kneaded (haha) by clients she loves spending time outdoors with her husband and their 2 dogs, Winston and Kalani finding adventure everywhere, creating new dishes in the kitchen and catching up on all things paleo.

I’m the brains behind Michigan Massage and Wellness.  And I’m here because I picked up a brochure for  Irene’s Myomassology Institute and decided ‘what the hell’. And this is what I’ve been doing since 2004.

I’m known as the problem solver in the office…frozen shoulder is my jam. So is plantar fasciitis, migraines, sciatica and honestly, sticky icky joints.

My specialties are Fascial Stretch Therapy, Lokte Method, MPS Therapy (it’s like acupuncture without the needles and is amazing for scar tissue). I’ve retired from doing ‘regular’ massage and focus more on specific problems and conditions.

I also love helping people move better, and I do that through my Yoga Tune Up® classes (both in person and virtual), workshops and my Corrective Exercise Specialist training with NASM.

To know me is to know that I love all things food, travel (Delta Medallion status FTW!), Netflix binges, making a mess in my kitchen on my latest Paleo creation and my dogs, Cooper and Elliot.

Our Assistants

Rebecca’s pups-Elliot and Cooper, they like to think that they help out.  One day they’ll be able to schedule appointments for us….but for now, you might see them hanging out in the studio working on their mobility (or at home on the couch where they’re not supposed to be)
