About

Our clinic has been around since 1998 starting in a single room office in Leonardtown, Maryland. We then grew into our current 2,000 sq. ft. facility in Hollywood, Maryland.

Our success comes from letting the customer lead us in the way that we need to grow. We believe that when there is good client/therapist feedback, it not only helps with customer satisfaction, but a quicker recovery for you as well.

Another reason we are so successful is the fact that our therapists are highly educated and trained in the most current techniques, laws and numerous massage modalities.

We do not do “assembly line” massages. Each session is customized to the individual specific needs.

Why Us

We have helped everyone from Amish to Admirals ... teens to elderly ... healthy and not so healthy. We’re sure you’ll find a therapist suited for your unique needs.

All of our therapists carry Maryland licenses so we encourage you to try all the therapists in our office. Each therapist brings something unique to the table and specializes in a multitude of modalities. Not to mention, if one is on vacation or not available, you’ll feel comfortable trying a different therapist. We actually encourage you to try everyone!

Our retention rate speaks for itself and it speaks volumes. We currently have 80% of the therapeutic massage business in southern Maryland. Besides being Maryland and Nationally Certified, we are recognized by many insurance companies and local physicians. Additionally, we have an active referral process with the local Hospice service due to the licensing we carry.

We make appointments for every day of the week. Fill out our Intake Form and bring it with you when you come in. This will enable us to better serve your particular needs.

She is Maryland State Licensed through the Board of Chiropractic Examiners and is associated with the International Massage Association (IMA) and is licensed as a Deep Muscle Massage Practitioner.

    Michelle Lea continues to expand her business to better accommodate her growing clientele. She learned quickly about the demand for alternative therapy. She has researched and soul searched this aspect of healing and has discovered that most people are opened to non-traditional therapy as long as it’s "grounded.” She prides herself and her staff on this approach.

    This expansion benefits the public with more massage appointment availability, more locations and more quality therapists. Her staff is alternative healthcare at affordable prices.

    While some may find massage an “unlikely” form of health care, Michelle stresses the fundamentals and necessity of Therapeutic Massage as an alternate means of healing.

    One of her specialties is neck and back injuries, injuries brought on by whiplash or any type of muscular tension. She prides herself in taking on a person with severe back problems and rehabilitating them back to normal flexibility through a process of therapy visits.

  • Melody Gough, Master Herbalist

    My daughter has suffered from migraines for over 8 years. I began removing foods from her diet and searching for natural remedies because she was too young for many medications. I became very interested in herbal medicine mainly because I could control the dosage and I knew exactly what I was giving her.

    I have recently studied with Natural Healing College in California.
