Michelle Gouveia is a Registered Massage therapist who left the corporate world in 2002 to pursue her passion for health and wellness. She went on to complete her massage training at Kikkawa college in 2004. Michelle has been involved in athletics and fitness all her life. It was these experiences that motivated her to study and pursue massage therapy. Michelle specializes in the relief of acute or chronic pain due to repetitive stress injuries, postural/muscular imbalances, sports injuries, whiplash injuries, TMJ discomfort, prenatal massage, headaches and general tension. She follows each treatment with re-educating clients on correct posture, stretching and strengthening muscles that may have been weakened or injured. Michelle has worked in a variety of settings from upscale spa’s to medical clinics. However, she always had a vision of something more. This was to open a health care clinic and provide the best therapeutic care and treatments in a relaxing spa like setting.
That vision became a reality and through hard work and perseverance, Lakeside Physio & Massage was born.
