About Evolve

Pain Management Specialists

Evolve Massage and Alternative Healing was born out of the idea that massage is essential for the reduction and management of many, if not all chronic pain conditions. Many of our clients have chronic pain that Traditional Western Medicine only knows how to treat with drugs and surgery. Many chronic pain conditions and even other chronic issues including anxiety and depression can have their roots in muscular tension and knots.

“We are passionate about helping you feel better. We are not only going to use our expertise to release tight, knotted muscles, but we will also council you in stretching and meditation techniques to take home with you so you can make marked improvements even between sessions.
Pain is NOT a given side effect of aging… often it is a choice. We can help you understand what that means and how to make choices to manage and eventually relieve your daily pain.” -Michael

Oh, my goodness, Meaghan was WONDERFUL. I’m a massage enthusiast, going somewhat regularly for 5-6 years to various places. Meaghan is the best I’ve ever seen. I had my 2nd massage with her on Friday, 6/8, and it was a combo relaxation/deep tissue. She explained various modalities and constantly checked with me to confirm her touch was appropriately firm/light. Meaghan is extremely professional, polite, and personable in manner, disposition and expression, but also in her technique! The atmosphere was wonderfully inviting, relaxing (complete with very soft light/candles). No other thereapists for me but Meaghan! THE BEST!

My husband and I have had 2 couples massages with Ian and Meghan and have another one scheduled. We highly recommend both Ian and Meghan. They make a really great team and are both very personable. Ian does excellent deep tissue massages and works out all the tough areas better than anyone I've ever received a massage from. I honestly felt a euphoric feeling afterwards that made for the best sleep I've ever had and all my tension and soreness disappeared for weeks. My husband wanted more of a relaxation massage and he says Meghan is perfect for achieving it. He got up from the massage looking like he had just woken up from a wonderful, restful sleep. He, too, slept great afterwards and for many days to come. We also both struggle with anxiety issues and found the massages to alleviate that as well for awhile. We now consider this experience a favorite activity to relax and spend time together as a couple. Again, we highly recommend both Ian and Meghan and the couples massage experience. 🙂

I have been having alot of pain in my upper back, neck, and shoulders. My right shoulder had lost some mobility so I went for deep tissue massage therapy. Megham was terrific and listened to me as I described in detail what was going on. She was very cautious to apply the correct amount of pressure so that it didnt cause me discomfort. She worked each area I was having trouble with and brought me much needed relief. Today I am able to use my right arm more and doing so without the pain. She also gave me epsoms salt and told me to take a hot bath in it to draw out more of the toxins. She was very kind, very attentive, and did an outstanding job to bring me the relief I needed.

this was my very first massage. amazing experience. thank you, meghan.

This was my first time getting a massage & it was an awesome experience. Meghan was very informing, she made me feel comfortable about what will happen & she made sure I was comfortable with her level of pressure to my body. The aroma & energy in the room was very calming. I will be booking another session with them in the near future.
