Owner/Operator @ Austin Massage Company
Sports Massage Specialist
Michelle Hittner’s own diverse athletic background gives her a discernable edge over other massage therapists. An avid cyclist, runner and triathlete who enjoys Crossfit just as much as a fun pub run, she knows that advising a client to “just take time off” to rest is not always an option for elite or high performing athletes.
Michelle’s knowledge of body dynamics and mechanics, combined with her first-hand experience in races and boot-camp workouts give her clients the best of both worlds: a therapist who can maximize performance potential, reduce pain, help rehabilitate an injury and provide the relaxing perfection of stress relief.
Professional musicians experience repetitive movement strain just as athletes do, and Michelle has been addressing their massage needs regularly backstage at Austin City Limits Festival, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Lollapalooza.
She has an extensive work history in therapeutic massage, sports massage, myofascial release, prenatal massage and pain management.
Michelle tailors each session to meet the personal needs of the client, with the ultimate goal of wellness, longevity and rejuvenation.
