Diane's interest in massage was sparked during her nursing career in which patients loved a back massage from her! She had been practicing as a Registered Nurse for over 25 years. She worked in a nursing home and then a hospital, and then joined the Air Force and became commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in March, 1987. Throughout her 20 year tenure in the Air Force Nurse Corps, Diane worked as a clinical nurse, flight nurse, in quality risk management, disease management, and finally, at her last assignment, before retiring at the rank of Major, worked as an operations officer in aeromedical evacuation at Tanker Airlift Command and Control Center, Scott Air Force Base, IL.
Following her retirement, she continued to work as a clinical nurse in medical centers in St Louis. In 2010, she pursued her interest in massage by attending The Body Therapy Center, where she completed her certification the following year. After she became licensed, she continued to work as a nurse in a clinic while working part-time as a massage therapist up until 2014, when she became a full-time massage therapist in a chiropractic office and now here at Michelle's Massage Therapy. Diane is available at the O'Fallon location.

Hi, I am a board certified, licensed massage therapist. I graduated from the Healing Arts Center in 2006. For over 15 years I worked in the corporate world before moving to massage full time in February of 2019. Seeing how the daily stresses of an office job can take a toll on a person's body has inspired me to specialize in relieving those tired shoulders, neck, and back. I combine many modalities in each session. Client favorites include hot stones, ashiatsu barefoot massage, cupping therapy, trigger point, and doTERRA aromatherapy. If you're in search of a deep tissue massage, I definitely recommend you booking an ashiatsu barefoot session with me. Client favorites include hot stones and Myofascial Release. Cupping Therapy and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage available March 2019.
I’m available at the O'Fallon location by appointment: O’Fallon: Sunday-Thursday (9am-9pm)

I first became interested in becoming a massage therapist after I witnessed the transformative effects of myofascial release. I was working as a special education teacher with an early intervention program. There was an 18-month-old girl there with cerebral palsy. She was drawn up like a tight little ball, her muscles would not cooperate and she frequently cried with frustration. Our team had the opportunity to learn myofascial release techniques. We massaged her every day for around 6 weeks. Slowly her muscles relaxed to the point that she was able to stretch her tiny body out and propel herself down the hallway on a scooter board! That's when I promised myself I would learn more about massage. I found my passion!
A session with me might include, Swedish, neuromuscular massage, hot stone, aromatherapy, ashiatsu, and reflexology.

Tessa graduated from the Body Therapy Center, School of Massage in 2018, and earned her massage therapist license in 2018. She specializes in several modalities including Swedish, deep tissue, and MyoFascial Release; add to that an extensive knowledge of cupping therapy, hot stone therapy, prenatal & infant massage. She is continuing a personal interest studying herbalism and aromatherapy. She is a member of AMTA.
A military spouse/work-at-home Mom for 20 years, she has volunteered and worked with first responders, active duty military, and veterans with PTSD, as well as their dependents, to facilitate their process as they pursue building their health and wellness. She is a member of the VFW auxiliary.
Immersed in the health and wellness community at an early age, and fascinated by traditional & holistic medicine, and practices complementary to modern medicine, she found interests in herbalism, yoga, music/dance and art therapy, Anatomy/Physiology Body work, and Energy work. She became a reiki practitioner, finally earning the Reiki Master Teacher attunement in 2016.
Now, a cancer survivor and single mom, she is committed to beautifying and improving her environment, and helping make our community an enjoyable relaxing place to thrive.
Healing work is my profession and my life’s path. My style is customized for each client and incorporates a blend of modalities including Swedish, Lymphatic Drainage, and Reiki. Lymphatic drainage is a light pumping technique that works to move stagnate fluid throughout the body. Relieving pain and pressure in joints, quickening the recovery of muscle tissue, and allowing new fluid to facilitate healing. Reiki is a light touch, deeply relaxing energy healing technique. Using a series of still hand placements, Reiki works with the body’s energy flow to bring stillness and rest. I feel everyone can benefit from Reiki, especially those dealing with anxiety, stress, grief, depression, and irregular sleep.
