Back In Balance Therapeutic Massage


My Name is Michelle Marshall M.T.  I am the owner and Massage Therapist at Back in Balance Massage Therapy LLC.  I have been a  massage therapist since 2001 were I graduated top of my class  with straight A's in both bodywork and anatomy and physiology.   I first got into massage therapy at the suggestion of a homeopath that I would be good at massage therapy and would complement my other interests that of more natural health, and pain relief.  I had been in a serious car accident and had pain myself , back pain, neck pain  and I had fibromyalgia which seemed to have no relief even after going to physical therapists.  I  decided to go to school to study Massage Therapy and seemed to have an intuition about where people were in pain and an ability to find their "sore spots, knots and tightness." Since then I have also taken a course in Medical Massage and am a certified Medical Massage Practitioner, which means if you have been injured at work,  in a car accident, or some kind of other personal injury, and you have a prescription from a Doctor for massage I can file with your insurance. Please call me to get details of what needs to be included in the prescription.     I  believe wholeheartedly that Massage Therapy along with a healthy lifestyle is a very good modality to decrease pain and stress, and to increase health vitality and mobility.  I believe this because it helped me  tremendously.
