Important Info

Location - I am now in suite 210 in the Masonic Temple. When you enter the suite, turn right and go past the waiting area. My office, 210-I will be the first one on your right. There are no numbers/letters, but my name plate is up next to the door, so look for that.

About Your Therapist

Chelle has been a massage therapist since 2002 and has worked in a variety of settings from day spas to wellness centers. She's been in private practice since 2013.

Message from Chelle:

I'm neurodivergent and am primarily kinesthetically oriented. This means I work best in a calm environment and I need to touch and interact with things to best understand them. Massage therapy is a dream career for me.

You Belong Here

New Yew is an accessible, body positive, diversity welcoming, queer friendly, trans-affirming massage and bodywork practice in the Heritage Hill neighborhood, just 1 block from  Downtown Grand Rapids.

Helping Where Others Have Failed

If you've been to several providers but still have pain, you're in the right place. Expect to tell me what types of treatments you've had as well as where and how previous providers have worked on your issue. There's no need to duplicate what hasn't worked.

The Value of Specialization

You deserve to be treated by someone who understands your particular issues and how to treat them. 

I've spent years learning all I can about a handful of conditions and then spent additional years working to understand how all of that translates into success (or failure) on the massage table.

I'm going to answer the questions that I actually get asked the most, rather than use this FAQ post as a "clever device" to answer the questions that no one's asking even though I want to answer them.

Specialties should take a long time to develop, so I understand why 9 might seem excessive. But what if I told you that it's really only 3 specialties?
