I am an individual massage therapist with a massage therapy studio located in Rye, NY. My goal is to provide therapeutic massage in a relaxing environment. I believe that every body is different and every session should be tailored to each individual.  Each session is customized focusing on the mind body connection. I specialize in relaxation & pain management using the highest quality products, advanced massage modalities & techniques. Some of my advanced trainings include: Oncology, Mastectomy, TMJ, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Pre-Natal, Post Natal, Abdominal, Fibromyalgia and Scar Tissue Massage.

What is Balsam ? 
Balsam has many meanings and they all correspond to healing and nature.  Balsam relates to a variety of plants: balsam firs, balsam impatiens and balsam poplars to name a few.  Balsam is also known to be an aromatic salve or oil. Balsam Fir essential oil is traditionally used to address muscular aches and pains, while the warm aroma soothes and rejuvenates body and mind creating an uplifting sense of well being.  The word “balsam” also means anything healing or soothing….need I say more.

Michelle Kelly Dillon, Dreamer, NY & CT Licensed Massage Therapist, Owner Balsam Massage & Manual Therapy
My dream has been to create a space that combines the relaxation of a spa, the capacity to provide outstanding therapeutic medical massage and manual therapy, with the familiarity of working with an independent practitioner. Balsam Massage & Manual Therapy is the realization of that dream.
