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 which led her to pursue massage therapy. It was this experience that motivated her to study 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, nutrition, 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. Something she could drive to ensure everyone could attain the help and appropriate treatment they deserve. This year, that vision became a reality and through hard work and perseverance, Lakeside Physio & Massage was born.
