"Michelle was available on short notice to help me after I hurt my neck on the slopes. She did a lot more than fix my neck! She's so knowledgeable and exceptional at what she does. Next time I'm in Whistler I'm booking her whether or not I get injured"

Marsha Sharpe, Hawaii

“Michelle’s hands and healing skills are brilliant!”


Angela Mellor • Whistler, BC

“It has been a pleasure having Michelle work on myself and my wife while we vacation in Whistler, BC, every Summer. She has very skillful hands and we value her immensely. She is a very knowledgeable woman.”


Bob Sandman Coalson • Lakewood, WA

“Michelle is truly amazing! I was working out-of-town not long ago and injured my lower back badly – to the point where I was having such severe muscle spasms that it was impossible to sleep, let alone move, without being in agony. After researching the local area’s paper to see who could possibly help me on a Thursday night around 7pm, Michelle was the only one who was more than willing to treat my back even though she was about to close. She not only went the extra mile to help out a potential client, but the acupuncture combined with deep tissue massage not only made it possible for me to move correctly again but allowed me to work the following day and complete my out-of-town work. Much thanks and appreciation to Michelle for not only going the extra distance to help someone out – but also for being an exceptional example of what a small local business is capable of becoming. Exceptional service and fantastic treatment! Thanks again Michelle!”

Angela Mellor • Whistler, BC

“I am an avid skier that visits Whistler several times a month during the winter season. I ski hard and usually come limping off the mountain and then limp back to the gondola the next morning. I previously viewed “massages” as a luxury and learned to just “deal” with the pain. I first met Michelle prior to a friend’s appointment. That particular day, I had sprained my knee pretty bad. It was extra tender and swollen and I had resigned myself to calling my weekend short. Michelle, however, said that some massage and acupuncture could help. I was skeptical, especially about being poked with needles! Let me tell you, I became a believer after our session. Naming her business “Healing Hands” is an absolute understatement! After an hour session, my knee felt 100% better…she had miraculously reduced most of the pain and swelling and my knee felt good enough to enjoy another day on the slopes! While I realize, not a medical substitute for a serious injury, acupuncture is at the very least, a serious ingredient in an active and healthy lifestyle. Since my conversion under her expert and knowledgeable hands, I have been unable to find her equal! And while everybody enjoys a massage, the benefits are usually temporary…not with Michelle! Her unique talent and skill transcend the normal indulgence associated with a massage. Her “Healing Hands” truly exceed what the title humbly proclaims! Thank you Michelle and hope to see again soon this season!!”
