Therapists & Staff

 

All of our therapists are licensed in the State of Michigan and give extremely high quality professional massages. Because Breckels Massage Therapy is owned by a massage therapist with 30 years of experience, we have the knowledge required to determine which incoming massage therapists will be best able to meet our clients’ needs. Additionally we are able to support, teach, and give constructive feedback to our newer therapists to fast track them to the excellence our clients have come to expect.

We are constantly updating and perfecting our skills so you can get the most therapeutic and/or relaxing massage possible. We encourage clients to try all of our therapists as each one is terrific and brings a little something different to the (massage) table.
