While studying flute performance and classical dance at the University of Wyoming, Michelle Shaw's endeavors were hampered by constant back pain. She sought relief through massage therapy and yoga, and this holistic care soon developed into a passion, inspiring her to attend the Baltimore School of Massage.

This is especially true at 28th Street Wellness, where Claire Pallandre and Liz Ulrich use acupuncture and massage therapy, respectively, to help clients find relief from the chronic pains that plague them.

Claire's five-element acupuncture sessions help jump-start the flow of stagnant energies by using precisely placed needles to facilitate the body's natural healing capabilities. When it comes to massage, Liz draws from a range of modalities that includes everything from Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to myofascial work and activated stretching. Each of these modalities has a specific purpose, whether it involves soothing tightly knotted muscles near the surface or finally figuring out how to unfurl that bow tie from last year.
