By The Bridge Wellness opened in November 2014 in Paris Ontario, in the heart of what is now fondly referred to as “the prettiest little town in Canada”. At 2 Arnold Street, there is a beautifully maintained century home that will make you feel welcome and at peace the second you arrive, from the garden-lined walkway to the cozy seating just inside the front door.
The ultimate goal of any treatment is your improved wellness. Are you a weekend warrior? You might have an injury that needs some attention . . . or maybe you need a relaxation massage to help reduce the tension associated with the stresses of everyday living. The benefits of Massage Therapy, Reflexology and Reiki are well-established as part of a complete wellness program. Our clinicians are happy to discuss your personal needs and help you design a plan to improve your general health and wellness. We can explain how each of the services we offer can enhance your overall wellness or we can focus on those specific little nuisances that affect your daily function – whatever you need, we are here to help.
We offer you the freedom and flexibility of scheduling your own appointments using our on-line booking program, and we are open seven days a week to suit even the busiest of lifestyles. By The Bridge Wellness also offers direct-billing options to several large insurance companies, so if you have group benefits to offset the cost of our services, we can make that part easy for you too!
The knowledgeable and highly experienced staff members at By The Bridge Wellness are here to pamper you! You’ll be thinking about your next visit before you’re even out the door!
Our Wellness Team
I have been an energy practitioner for over 15 years. Following a life-altering experience I turned to Reiki and other modalities as an approach to heal myself. After experiencing the benefits of energy work, I chose to ‘pay it forward’ – serving and helping others on their journey.
Her career led her into the public service industry primarily in restaurant and retail.

Michelle continues her yoga training in classes and workshops. She began teaching Beginner Hatha Yoga in November 2017.
