Why did you become a massage therapist?

I decided to try massage therapy after college, not knowing what it was really about. I thought it was all about relaxation, but I fell in love with deep tissue techniques and problem solving. Now, nearly a decade later, I am still the happiest I have ever been with a career. Every day someone different walks through our doors who will walk out better than when they came in.

 

How would you describe your massage style?

At my core, I am a clinical problem solver; however, many of my clients receive very different massages. I love neuromuscular therapy, which really doesn’t have to be deep pressure, just specific work to be effective. I also love working slowly from a very light pressure starting point for many of my clients who are sensitive to touch or need a gentle approach.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

Helping people that have been dealing with migraines. One of my clients had been suffering from daily migraines for almost a year. Gradually, through multiple sessions, she has gotten relief. Now she’s off of strong medications, has only occasional migraines, and is taking her life back.

 

I also really enjoy having a focused pain relief oncology massage session. This is a very different approach of gentle, relaxing strokes that still has lasting results and helps support the healing systems of the body.

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

I really like teaching people about simple things that can help them out of pain. Many people who I’ve met have been living with pain and dysfunction for years, and have been searching for answers and relief. The great thing about massage is that it is non-invasive and beneficial. It works with your body so you can heal yourself.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Fall! The leaves are gorgeous, cider, donuts, and cool, breezy evenings.

 

What is your dream vacation?

Themed knitting trip! Going to see some sheep on a ranch out west and learning a bunch.

Angelica is a great fit for clients looking for a relaxing and effective massage experience that is tailored to their specific needs.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

I enjoy helping people, but can’t handle the sight of blood so I can’t be a nurse. Being a massage therapist is the next best thing!

Very fluid deep work that is going to work out your problem areas and relax you at the same time. I’m a runner and I understand the importance of training and recovery for athletes too.

Expertise: Hot Stone - Myofascial Release - Neuromuscular Therapy - Deep Tissue - Sports Massage

Read about Matt's training and approach to massage

Matt joined our BMT team in April of 2011. He brings a slow and calm approach to massage therapy. Using a lot of Myofascial techniques, Matt’s style involves using longer, slower strokes. It is an effective technique and shows results. He does great deep tissue work and should be able to address any issue a client would like worked on. His deep tissue style is unique in that he builds the pressure slowly, and gradually works deeper and deeper. Matt also has advanced training in Hot Stone and does an amazing therapeutic hot stone massage.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

Massage is something I’ve always been interested in. I originally went to Grand Valley State with the idea of getting into the physical therapy program there. I ended up getting my BS there in Biomedical Science, but after moving back home to the family farm the opportunity to go to massage school opened up to me, and I jumped at the chance.

 

How would you describe your massage style?

I like to blend a few different things together to create an effective massage for my clients. I tend to use a lot of Myo and NMT techniques along with Swedish to really get in there to get after whatever is causing an issue for a client. I do tend to be more of a deep pressure therapist, and I have been incorporating some Table Thai into sessions, which is a form of massage that involves bending and stretching the client–I’ve been getting lots of good results from using it! I also enjoy working with Hot Stones as well.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

I don’t have one per se, as I have a pretty good roster of clients that I’ve helped with some of their assorted issues. Some of my favorite stories are the ones where I have spotted an issue the client has and didn’t know that massage could even do anything for that. I enjoy talking with clients about different techniques and approaches such as intraoral work for TMJ issues or a psoas release for lower back issues. It’s pretty rewarding to me to hear a client say after the session, “You were right. That did hurt like heck. But now I feel so much better now that you’re done!”

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

When someone tells me that their massage was the best part of their day. I enjoy hearing about how I’ve helped them out in just allowing them to use their body better or how I have gotten them through the stresses of their day through massage.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

My favorite season would have to be fall. There’s that cool crispness in the air that makes wearing a hoodie ideal. The leaves are changing and the harvest is coming in. And it’s football season, so I’m usually wanting to be off tailgating at a Grand Valley State game somewhere enjoying the nice weather.

 

What is your dream vacation?

For a vacation, I would really like to get away from it all, a small cabin somewhere way off the beaten path, where I could just enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods perhaps.

Why did you become a massage therapist?

When I was young I received massage from a family friend who was in school for massage. Then when I got older I realized that massage was what I wanted to do with my life, and to help people with massage.

 

How would you describe your massage style?

Mostly gentle with medium pressure and the ability to go lighter or deeper as needed. Somewhat intuitive, having the ability to “zero in” on those spots.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

I don’t have a single favorite, as I have a responsibility to make sure all my clients have a successful massage session. When someone comes in for their very first massage ever, I have to make sure they are comfortable and enjoy their massage enough that they will make massage a regular part of their life! Massage is such a huge help.

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

Helping a client is a two-way street: They feel better and I then feel better too, like a sense of accomplishment doing good. Making a difference in my clients’ lives makes a difference in mine.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Spring! Being from Michigan, watching the trees start to bud is like nature’s promise that it will get warm again.

 

What is your dream vacation?

Sitting on a white sandy beach with my family, enjoying the crashing waves, the gentle breezes, while a team of scientists works diligently trying to find a way to make my day better.

Why did you become a massage therapist?

I became pretty worn down looking for a job that “stuck”. Instead, I got into massage to make my own position using the tools I learned. I became my own boss!

 

How would you describe your massage style?

I incorporate Swedish massage and other relaxing techniques into most of the massages I give.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

A client let me know her doctor recommended 6 months of physical therapy for a pinched nerve in her shoulder. She tried massage first before committing to that. After 2 sessions, her shoulder issue went away! Massage helped her save time, money, and she found pain relief.

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

Every client is different and needs different forms of help. I find ways to help each person individually.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

I enjoy winter because of all the beautiful snow.

Preferentially heavy, deep work focused on anatomical response and therapeutic effect.

What do you like best about helping clients?

I think helping clients sums it up. Most of my work results directly in people feeling better, and that is deeply satisfying.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Sarah’s approach to massage is focused on helping her clients with any issues they may have by using different modalities to address their needs. She has had deep muscle training, and uses trigger point therapy along with firm pressure to troubleshoot her client’s issues.

Her clients leave with a sense of deep relaxation, as well as a feeling that their trouble areas have been worked out.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

As soon as I got out of the Navy, I had trouble finding a job where I could use my training so I was working at Starbucks. I saw a commercial for massage school and signed up and got started right away. I loved it, and still love it. Who knew after all those years I would find my niche!

 

How would you describe your massage style?

My style is a mixture of many styles. I like digging in and working out tension and can also go lighter and make it relaxing. I have a lot of clients who see me for therapeutic work, which I love. I can customize to each client’s needs. My intuition and education guide me through each session.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

I do not have any one in particular. I just love to see progress and improvements in health, pain management, and headaches. That is my favorite part of being a massage therapist.

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

I like making clients feel better. I like when I can help make them happier with pain management or a problem in general that I can fix. I am happy when they are happy!

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Fall! I love wearing hoodies and jeans. The leaves changing are so beautiful. Campfires are so nice to sit by and fishing is good too.

Debbie uses her skills in Myofascial release, and NMT to help her clients achieve their wellness goals. She has extensive training in geriatric massage, and can use her knowledge to give her clients a very relaxing experience.

 

Debbie’s training has given her a unique combination of styles that she can use to provide her clients with deep tissue bodywork, but also a special sensitivity to their needs.

 

Debbie’s clients have reported that she is especially good at the work she does on the neck, shoulders, and upper back, and the work she does to alleviate tension headaches. Her approach is to give each client the individual attention they need to have a great massage experience.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

I desired to make a difference in people’s lives, to bring healing in a non-medical way. My friends and family told me how much they liked the back rubs I gave them so I decided to pursue a career along those lines.

 

How would you describe your massage style?

Relaxing and focused. I use all the techniques that I’ve learned in combination with one another, all with the goal of creating a relaxing and rewarding massage experience.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

When I was working at the UofM hospital, I was watching/supervising a patient who was very anxious and could find no rest. She asked me to rub her back in an effort to calm down. I happened to be going through massage school at the time, so gleaning on my training, I proceeded to give a relaxing back massage. She was able to rest for a couple of hours as a result!

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

It is my pleasure to know that I have been able to help them, even in a small way!

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Spring! Cold is beginning to leave and you can see new life on the ground! The days get lighter and we are reminded again that winter is not forever!

Laura

Laura's current schedule:

On Maternity LEave


Expertise:  Myofascial Release - Advanced Tensegrity

Read about Laura's training and approach to massage

Laura’s style of massage uses firm pressure, but is not extremely deep. She prefers to use myofascial release and trigger point techniques, with some movement and holding/stretching as well. Along with myo, she has training and certifications in sports, swedish, and prenatal massage. Additionally, Laura is proficient in Advanced Tensegrity, which incorporates rocking and kneading techniques to stimulate blood flow and activate joints to release tension from connective tissue.

 

Her approach to massage is focused on improving the overall wellness of her clients. She has a unique ability to work deeply into tissue layers without applying heavy pressure. She describes her technique as working from the inside out, with a focus on structural wellness. Her style is great for troubleshooting without being overly specific.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

I didn’t have my first massage until I was in my 20s. I loved the experience so much I knew I wanted to bring that feeling to others.

 

How would you describe your massage style?

I incorporate a lot of movement into my massages. Like any therapist, I customize the massage to the client, but there are certain techniques I use in almost every massage. I always try to increase blood flow through the joints to keep everything loosened up.

 

One thing I use to explain my approach is the Orange Analogy. Your body is like an orange. None of the muscle or even muscle fibers ever touch each other — they are all encased in connective tissue, like the white part of an orange. Your low back is like the naval of the orange, it has the most connective tissue. So if you are tight anywhere else in the body it often tugs on the low back, causing low back pain. This is why it is so common for low back pain to be a referred pain that is actually being caused by tightness elsewhere in the body.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

I don’t have any one in particular. Every client who leaves happy is my favorite success story!

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

I like helping my clients find what they are looking for, whether it be pain relief or relaxation.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Fall. I love the changing colors and the harvest foods.

 

What is your dream vacation?

Reading in the sun on a hot beach.

Expertise: Neuromuscular Therapy - Myofascial Release - Swedish

Read about Amy's training and approach to massage

Amy’s massage style is based upon helping each individual she works with to feel better, and to progress toward their personal long-term health goals. She thrives on the opportunity to educate her clients about how their bodies work, and how massage can help them with their daily routines. Amy uses a variety of techniques to address any issues a client may have, but her main focus is troubleshooting and problem solving using light to medium pressure NMT and Trigger Point techniques. She also specializes in relieving stress and tension with a great blend of relaxation and therapeutic techniques.

 

The approach that Amy uses is intended to combine different massage modalities to give the client some of the benefits of each style. She uses Myofascial to warm up the muscles, then moves toward NMT and Trigger Point to focus on the more specific issues and tension areas, while using Swedish style to seamlessly blend everything together for a calming and relaxing experience.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

I wanted to pursue a career that would allow me to directly help people with health concerns. The more I learned about massage, the more appreciative I became of the important role it can play in supporting health and a sense of well being. I decided to go to massage school to continue learning, and it has been such a rewarding path to follow ever since.

 

How would you describe your massage style?

I use an integrated approach, most often incorporating myofascial release, NMT, and swedish techniques into each session. I also often include stretching and joint mobilization to facilitate both specific therapeutic work and relaxation.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

One story that comes to my mind is of a client who was suffering from upper back and shoulder pain while working at her physically demanding job. After the first session, she reported feeling less pain, more flexibility, and more hope for being able to work at her job without pain. After repeated sessions, and her great dedication to stretching and strengthening exercises, she reported feeling pain free at work, and also a renewed motivation for exercising more regularly.

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

I love to hear my clients’ unique stories, and to cheer them on in reaching their health goals. This is a wonderful part of the job!

 

What is your favorite season and why?

I think fall is my favorite. I like the exciting beauty of fall colors mixed in with that reflective anticipation of colder months right around the corner.

 

What is your dream vacation?

Traveling to a very different part of the world and exploring both cities and countryside with good friends. Right now, I’m really interested in visiting Hungary and Romania. In my wildest vacation dreams, I’m good at learning many different languages!

Read about Kyla's training and approach to massage

Kyla’s massage style is best described as a combination of medium to deep pressure specific work and lighter, smoother relaxing work. She thinks of each session as a unique opportunity to learn more about her clients, their needs, and her craft as a whole. With a varied training background, Kyla can integrate various techniques into each massage to help find new ways to address the needs of each individual she works on. Ultimately, her goal is to connect with her clients, and help them to leave with a smile.

 

Kyla takes her time with each massage, and is able to slowly guide the massage experience from a flowing, relaxation based approach to a more thorough NMT or trigger point technique. She relies mostly on Swedish style, but has the ability to integrate many modalities into her sessions. She works in stretching when appropriate, and she can also help with improving range of motion. Kyla is also adept at working with clients who may have postural imbalances.

 

Kyla is a great fit for clients who are looking for a smooth relaxing massage, especially those who would also like some specific focus on the neck, upper back, and shoulders. She is also great with people who like to learn a little from their sessions, as she informs her clients of what she is working on, and ways to improve their overall well being. Kyla’s quiet, caring demeanor makes her easy to connect with, and her positive energy easily rubs off on her clients.

 

Why did you become a massage therapist?

I grew up hearing my dad talk about the pain relief that massage therapy brought him, that was never really matched by various drugs over the years, so it was always in the back of my head. When I started thinking about what kind of professions I’d like to be a part of, I added it to a list that included things like pastry chefs and translators. In the end, I decided that massage therapy, with its ability to make such a huge impact on people’s lives, sounded very satisfying to me, so I enrolled in a program and it turns out I love it!

 

How would you describe your massage style?

It depends on the client. Usually I use the Swedish style as a base, and then integrate other modalities such as stretching or trigger point work as I see fit.

 

What is your favorite client success story?

There are too many to pick a favorite! Recently a client came in with intense shoulder and neck pain that had suddenly started. After a focused session of deep tissue, range of motion exercises, and stretching, the muscles went through a good release. The first thing she said to me when she got off the table was “Wow! It’s like night and day!” We were both pretty ecstatic :-)

 

What do you like best about helping clients?

The variety of client stories! Everybody’s story is unique; where they’ve been, what they’ve done, and where they’re going is fascinating to me.

 

Whether helping someone relax after a hectic week, nipping a migraine in the bud, or working on a chronic issue, it makes me happy to be a positive addition to that story.

 

What is your favorite season and why?

Spring! The weather’s just right: warm with a cool breeze. The way everything feels as if it’s shaking off the sleepiness of winter, as if all that pent up energy is about to burst into action and a multitude of possibilities can become reality–I can’t help but feel excited.
