Michael Mandell, LMP

My massage practice is focused on injury treatment with a concentration treating chronic pain and structural issues. I like to create an atmosphere in which you can totally relax or get treatment for your ailments.

My prior employment includes extensive experience in Customer Service Management in multiple industries, receiving many service awards dealing with the public and private sectors. I left the high tech industry where I was working with fortune 100 companies as a project manager before starting massage school.

I grew up in Maine and skied my way through Business School in Bangor. I moved around with the Hotel Industry, Waterville Valley, NH, Hartford, CT, New Orleans, LA, and I have been in Seattle since 1996. I worked with 3 failed "start ups" during the Tech Boom and met many great people. It was a great ride while it lasted, but decided to help others with touch. I like to ride my Motorcycle (Suzuki Bandit 1200) and bicycle (Mongoose 850 Hybrid). I live in West Seattle with my Life Partner, 2 Saint Bernards, and 2 Ferrets.
