Mihaela Mihalache, Massage Therapist
Mihaela is a graduate of Makami College’s 3000 Hour Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy program. She is trained in Swedish relaxation massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release massage, prenatal massage, hot stones massage, cupping massage, neuromuscular massage and orthopedic massage.
Mihaela’s massage therapy approach is client focused, based on each client’s expectations and individual needs. She believes that communication is key in developing the client-massage therapist relationship and recognizes that feelings of trust and safety are developed by getting to know one another. The client has the expertise in the type of pain they have, where the pain is located and what their exceptions are; Mihaela aims to understand the client’s needs and exceed their expectations.
