Michelle Dillon offers massage therapy, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), and scar-tissue release to decrease pain and increase relaxation. Both 60- and 90-minute treatment sessions are available.
What drew you to this profession?
I was drawn to being a massage therapist by my own exploration of pain management. Through the years I’ve been diagnosed and misdiagnosed with TMJ, thoracic outlet syndrome, costochondritis, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, restless leg syndrome, cancer, IBS, herniated disks, sciatica and plain old wonky knees.
How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?
My philosophy is to not create pain to relieve pain. My treatment sessions use techniques from traditional massage based on current pain science.
What should someone expect from working with you?
A pain-free session to reduce pain, calm the nervous system, increase relaxation and increase range of motion. A consultation before every session. No pre-planned routines. Customized treatment sessions for every appointment. An LGBTQ+ ally.
What changes do you have planned for 2022?
I plan to become certified as a complete decongestive therapist in order to help lymphedema and cosmetic surgery patients. I also plan to become a preferred provider for the Veterans Administration.
