Michele Pedersen, LMT 

Describe a treatment with you?

Honestly, I would love to know what it would be like to experience a massage from me! Some of the feedback I have received is that people have felt warmth and healing, their pain has gone away, they feel like a new person, they feel deeply relaxed. My treatments are very gentle and nourishing. I often incorporate Craniosacral Therapy into my massages.  Over time whatever their issues or challenges, seem to come full circle and become resolved. My intention is to make my clients feel warmly welcomed, received, completely accepted, empowered, hopeful, nurtured, and supported in their wellness goals.

Favorite thing about your job?

Making a difference, uplifting, offering hope, guidance, support in the ways my clients are ready for. Laying on of hands in a healing, nurturing way. Knowing when I am helping mom relax, their baby is receiving the benefits of my touch, as well.

Your ideal client?

My ideal client is ready to take responsibility for their health and well- being and that of their baby. They are committed to exploring and discovering what works for them on this journey.

Esoteric humor, my dog, my significant other.

One thing you do every single day?
Meditate, give thanks, drink a warm cup of Mate, do yoga, and walk my dog. 

What’s your spirit animal? 

I feel like my spirit animal changes as I transition in life. Sometimes it’s the hawk, the crow, or the rabbit. I love the freedom the two winged’s have and the opportunity to rise above and see things from a greater perspective. I feel drawn to the wolves, as well. I’m curious to see what shows up for me during this phase of my journey.
