Michelle Dominique LMT, B.A. is the newest member to join the staff at RCW. Michelle has been a member of the wellness community as a Certified Health coach and massage therapist for nearly two decades.
In the course of her nearly twenty years in practice, she has worked with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapist and acupuncturist where, in addition to her formal training, she honed her skills in medical massage. In the early years of her career she also worked in several fitness centers and Medi spas. Michelle used this wealth of experience to develop her own unique style of “non-invasive” deep tissue which she has used very successfully to eliminate long standing chronic pain for countless numbers of clients. Over the years Michelle has done training in many massage modalities all of which she combines in her treatments.
“My approach to bodywork is very intuitive. I allow your body’s energy to lead me to your specific area of concern, therefore each treatment you receive is customized to address your immediate needs. No two treatments are ever the same. I refer to my bodywork as treatments because during your session I incorporate multiple techniques and tools (i.e. cupping, warm stone therapy, hydrotherapy, lymphatic drainage) to help restore balance and release discomfort.
Michelle received her health coaching certification from the Institute for Intergrative Nutrition and has held massage licenses in both Texas and Louisiana as well as national certification through the NCTMB (National Certification of Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworkers). She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Howard University in Washington D.C.
Deep Tissue – a “non-invasive” approach allows the release of chronic muscle tension in a way that is highly effective without leaving you feeling as if you’ve been run over by a MAC truck the next day. During this treatment hydrotherapy, warm stones and cupping may be used to achieve maximum results.
CHAKRA BALANCING WARM STONE MASSAGE – warm, smooth stones are used to in a rhythmic sequence of strokes designed to soothe taut muscles. Larger stones are nestled on several chakras points to usher the mind and spirit into the depths of relaxation. This treatment is truly an experience for the body, the mind and the spirit.
COLD STONE MIRGRAINE MASSAGE – perfect for those who suffer from migraines and frequent headaches alike. Acupressure is used to release tension in both areas then cold marble stones are applied to diffuse heat and reduce inflammation. This treatment is also very effective as a safe, non-toxic maintenance plan to keep migraines at bay.
FHN (face/head/neck) – an excellent therapy for teeth grinders, TMJ suffers and those who carry their stress in these areas. Releasing tension in these three areas alone can effectively minimize discomfort and alleviate soreness throughout the entire body.
KEEP IT MOVIN – this abdominal massage is crucial for chronic constipation suffers and is a great prelude to your colonic session. This treatment also includes hydrotherapy and foot reflexology.
BACK TO THE BASICS – this entire session focuses solely on your back. Cupping, warm stones, hydrotherapy and varying degrees of pressure are used to eliminate the chronic tightness and pain that are causing your daily discomfort.
