Michele Lyle – Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) / Owner
I was ready for a change that would allow me to give back to the community and make a real difference in people’s lives.
Michele recognizes the need and desire for resolving pain at all levels of the body. She appreciates and understands because she has walked through pain to health and wellbeing. She practices registered massage therapy in Vancouver to help you on your road to recovery.
Michele graduated from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in Vernon, BC in 1997. She continued her Post Graduate work in Postural Alignment, Trigger Point Work, Muscle Energy and Myofascial Release. Michele was a client and also worked as an intern at the Victoria Pain Clinic.
Some of the specific pain syndromes she has experienced success with are Sciatica, Hip and Frozen Shoulder problems. Using trigger point as the primary modality, Michele is able to have her clients participate in their therapy and be intimately involved in their own healing process.
It is Michele’s passion to help people resolve their pain syndromes; she has tremendous compassion, empathy and understanding for the process of healing and wellness. She recognizes the need for therapeutic treatments in resolving injury and pain, and values the art of relaxation massage. Michele takes the time with her clients to teach home care stretches and hydrotherapy thus ensuring understanding and involvement in their healing process.
Will Wells – Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)
‘The first time someone gave me a treatment using “Myofascial Release”, I was absolutely amazed, and it inspired my first steps on the path to working in massage therapy.’
Following a ten-year career as a technician for theatre, concerts and festivals, my desire to help people more directly inspired a move to massage therapy.
Since graduating from the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in 2014, I’ve provided therapeutic and relaxation massage in both clinical and spa settings.
I approach my clients with respectful, non-judgmental empathy. Based on your medical history and the results of orthopedic and neurological testing, we’ll develop a plan to meet your specific needs.
Some of the issues I may be able to help with:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Hip and leg pain
- Recovery from surgery, car accidents, strains, sprains or tendonitis
- Postural dysfunction, especially from too much sitting or standing
I seek to involve my clients in the treatment process, and help them take control of their health through education and homecare. I believe my role is to facilitate change in the body via the nervous system.
I use as much or as little pressure as is necessary to achieve the required therapeutic effect. I use a range of techniques, so we can tailor the treatment to your preferences.
Born in England and raised in Canada, I live in East Van with my spouse and our child. I ride my bike to get around, and try to make time for a yoga-inspired self-care practice.
I look forward to meeting you, and working together to achieve your goals.
