Love Michelle! She's very nice and makes you feel comfortable, as well as giving an awesome massage. She usually helps me with neck and shoulder stiffness but she's also helped out with my wrist tightness from typing. Since my friend recommended her to me I won't see anyone else!
Michelle is the best!! Not only does she give amazing massages, but she is also always welcoming and friendly to talk to, and in my experience really tries to create a comfortable environment for her clients. I have had multiple concussions and she gave me a personalized treatment focussing on my head/neck and back which really helped my headaches. She always checked in with me about how I was doing before the massage, and was happy to address specific questions, suggestions, and concerns. Also, she has the best playlist! Seeing her was always pleasant and relaxing.
Great place, amazing massage and Michelle was super professional and friendly. I was extremely nervous for my first massage (ever!), but she made me feel really comfortable. The room, table, atmosphere was great, and the massage was fantastic. I didn't realize that my neck and shoulders and back could feel any other way than how they've felt for as long as I can remember (stiff, pinched etc etc), but I am so glad I went there and can't wait for my next one! Also being able to direct bill insurance companies is great as well :)
I've been in Halifax for about five years, have had many, many massages at a great number of places. Michelle Wallace is by far the best. Very professional, knowledgeable, skillful. I saw Michelle through out my pregnancy. It really helped. Great location.

Very professional, and skilled at finding the right spots that need work. Michelle has been a great help through my recovery from a back injury.

I am so happy to have found Michelle! I have seen many different massage therapists over the years and Michelle is by far one of the best. She is professional, pleasant to deal with, and very skilled at finding the trigger points and working out the knots. Her office is conveniently located on Quinpool and her online booking system is really easy to use. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone in need of a good massage!

Therapeutic Approach, comprised of a number of different health care practitioners, is a warm and inviting office nestled in the heart of Halifax at 6156 Quinpool Road. The positive and friendly staff is reliable and efficient, each with specialized educational backgrounds and top-notch clinical training in their respective fields. Part of this crew is an RMT by the name of Michelle Wallace. I had spent the greater part of 2011 trying out various massage therapists in the North and West ends hoping to find one to call my own. After one session with Michelle, I knew that my search was over. Even though I had come across some great therapists last year, I felt that the chemistry just wasn't there. But I felt comfortable and at ease with Michelle right off the bat. Her ability to effectively drill into my knots and muscles is surpassed only by her general awesomeness. She's an educated and skilled professional, and is just what a knotty back needs!

I have chornic back issues and have used massage therapists for many years. Michelle is indeed one of the best I've found. She adapts her style to your needs and is very skilled at finding all the tight spots and working them out. The online booking system very convenient. I found her to be very professional and effective. Without hesitation, I would recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent massage.

I have seen Michelle Wallace as a client five times over the last few months. I was especially grateful for her student price and direct billing. Very few therapists offer this service. Her location is great and the atmosphere in her clinic is relaxing. I’ve had Ms. Wallace work on my neck and upper back primarily. I found that she has a good instinct as to where to focus her technique. I am pleased that she applies strong pressure over the course of the treatment. I have experienced improvement as a result of her work.

Recently I severely injured my back and required physiotherapy and massage. I called Michelle and discussed my incident with her. She gave a friendly, non-judgemental and helpful response to my concerns and assured me that we would communicate during the process of the massage and work though the rehab together. I felt really comfortable going to see her after this initial conversation.
Michelle's office is conveniently located on Quinpool in the North End. It is a calm, quiet, comfortable and confidential space which was really welcoming.
Michelle is very attentive to your needs. She frequently checks in and asks questions to make sure you are comfortable while at the same time attending to your rehabilitative needs. Don't let her petite size fool you! She is extremely strong and can help you get into some of those deep tissues! She is a great active listener if you prefer to talk while you are getting a massage. At the same time, she is quite happy to accommodate a peaceful, silent, relaxation massage as well.
It has been a really wonderful experience getting to know Michelle and as a result of her care, my back recovered within a quicker-than-expected time frame.
