Meet the Therapist

My name is Michael Paquette and I am a licensed massage therapist in West Chester, PA.  Although I have been interested in natural ways to increase wellness for many years, it was 2 years ago after suffering a low back injury that I found my calling.  Massage therapy, which I once thought of as a luxury, was crucial in my recovery.  Once I saw the benefits, I wanted to help others get out of the type of pain I was in.  I went to school and never looked back.

 The body has the wonderful power to heal itself if given the opportunity.  Massage helps give the body the space to heal and recover.  My approach to helping others is to remove restrictions which impede the body's natural state of wellness.  How this is accomplished is different in each situation and utilizes multiple modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point therapy, swedish, myo fascial techniques and many more.  I also provide recommendations on how to maximize the benefits of massage since I am with you for 60 - 90 minutes per week or month and you are with yourself 24/7.  Massage can be a big part of the wellness picture and together we can make a difference.

I graduated from the Cortiva Institute in King of Prussia, PA where I received the prestigious Mary Jo Myers award.  I am trained in :  Swedish, Deep Tissue/Sports Massage, Myofascial, Trigger Point Release, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) and Esalen style massage.  I look forward to hearing from you.
