Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork at the Image Recovery Center

Healing comes about when there is a positive collaborative environment, and a trusting relationship between you and your massage therapist. We are dedicated to providing this healing environment for you.

We blend various therapeutic methods to help people with issues such as muscle and nerve pain, postural distortion, repetitive use injury, prolonged stress, injury or illness.

Massage therapy benefits people of all ages. While it benefits the injured, the ill and the stressed, the strength of massage therapy in preventing illness and conditions before they develop cannot be overlooked. Massage therapy can be used in the treatment of both acute and chronic stages of conditions.

Our therapist is a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, has been licensed through the state of Michigan and has additional training in Oncology/Medical Massage through Beaumont Hospital.

Services include:
