A testimonial and praise with a little perspective: I have practiced yoga daily for 46 years. In 1971, I received the "full treatment" in a Turkish bath in Istanbul. My mind was opened to the benefits of bodywork. I have been to over 60 countries and pursued bodywork in many of them. I have experienced every imaginable treatment and more. I just spent a week with Michele Cappellano I recognize and honour Michele as a master bodyworker. Her fullbody treatment was deep and thorough. Her sensitivity was spot on. She went deep, but never to the point where I contracted. From me, that is the ultimate praise. Yoga this morning felt even more wonderful after Michele's treatment. I am already looking to our next session.
My family and I have been to a number of massage therapists and none compare to Michele. She recently helped me through a frustrating neck injury. My neck was so stiff I couldn’t back my car out of my driveway without turning my whole body around. After a few sessions she restored my range of motion, something the chiropractor wasn’t able to do in 10 visits. Also, my son receives treatment regularly through each sports season. During football she works on his back and hamstrings, baseball his shoulders arms, and now he is wrestling and everything hurts. Michele is great at targeting specific areas as well as treating the whole body. I have given several gift certificates to friends for special occasions. If you have a specific problem or just want to relax, Michele will make you feel great.
As a healthcare professional I believe I can recognize the talent and healing nature of others in the field. Michele Cappellano is a “gifted” massage therapist. I have been seeing her 2-3 times a month for the past 2 years and am experiencing the therapeutic effects of her work in my daily life. Michele brings her intuition and skill to the work she does. I strongly recommend her.
I have worked with many massage therapists, and Michele is the best. Michele is adaptive to her client’s needs; her deep tissue massage is amazing, but I also enjoy her therapeutic massage. The most impressive thing about Michele is her keen awareness of injuries. Michele points out any issues she has noticed and gives post-massage stretching tips. I would recommend Michele for all age groups. I met Michele at one of her wonderful infant massage classes when my son was a baby, and have recommended her to friends who have teens with stress or sports injuries. Michele is truly talented and I highly recommend her for injury recovery, for stress relief, or for a well-deserved gift to yourself!
Describing Michele Cappellano as a massage therapist is akin to describing Rubinstein as a piano player! She is both a unique practitioner and a remarkable person for whom massage is a calling. Michele’s practice of massage is so much more than kneading the muscles, rather its a vehicle to transmit wellness and stress reduction to her clients. She has a sixth sense and sees her clients as whole individuals. I dont really know what it means, and it may sound a bit fluffy, but Michele is a healer. I feel privileged to be one of her clients.
As a long time sufferer of scoliosis, one of the ways I find relief is through a deep tissue massage. I’m a very exacting connoisseur, but the minute Michele put her hands directly on the source of my pain and began to work, I knew I had found a practitioner who simply has the touch you can’t teach.
“In order to compete at the very best in collegiate cross country three things are key: summer training, efficient workouts, and ecovery. Getting frequent massages has allowed my body to handle the high mileage bulk of summer training, the intensity of in season workouts, and the recovery from the wears and tears of being a competitive athlete. Without massage, I would have never been able to increase my overall amount of training or the intensity of my training without breaking down. I credit it with saving me from season-ending injuries several times, and allowing me to perform my best at all times.”
“I feel that massage therapy has helped loosen my muscles and prepare me to compete. I am naturally very tight so massage therapy is critical to my success as a runner. In addition to loosening my muscles, the massages I have gotten at Health Thru Massage have taken away minor aches and pains I experience from my training. The massages also help me relax and de-stress after long weeks of school and practice.”
