Linda McGill

Licensed massage therapist, certified yoga teacher, wellness expert.

Hello there!
I'm Linda and I am
obsessed with
wellness for women.

My massage style is a testament to the philosophy that sometimes, less truly is more. With an understanding of the power of simplicity, I prioritize effectiveness over verbosity, allowing my hands to speak volumes where words might fail. Clients appreciate my ability to intuitively gauge their needs without the need for lengthy explanations or excessive chatter, creating a tranquil environment where relaxation and healing can flourish.

My passion for utilizing essential oils and various tools adds an extra dimension to my practice, enhancing the sensory experience and providing tailored solutions for each individual. Whether it’s the soothing aroma of lavender to induce calm or the targeted pressure of a specialized tool to release tension, I seamlessly integrate these elements into my massages, elevating the overall therapeutic effect.

What truly sets me apart is my commitment to continual learning and growth. I approach my craft with an insatiable curiosity, always seeking out new techniques and modalities to enhance my repertoire. This dedication not only ensures that I remain at the forefront of my field but also allows me to adapt and evolve in response to the diverse needs of my clientele.

In essence, my massage style is a harmonious blend of intuition, skill, and innovation—a reflection of my commitment to providing the best possible experience for those in my care.

Linda is curious – an active listener and learner, sensitive to her client’s individual needs, and responsive. She is excellent at her craft, but moreso, she is an amazing person. I appreciate how respectful, professional, and kind she is. And fun!!

Get to Know Me

My name is Linda. I’m married to a high school teacher and was born and raised in Washington state. I never knew what I wanted to be when I “grew up” so I went to massage school because it sounded interesting.  This was a very impulsive decision on my part because at this point I had literally only had one professional massage!  Fun fact: after I graduated in 2010, I initially hated being a massage therapist!  While a little dramatic, it’s true.  I was young and lacking life experience so I didn’t think I was capable of truly helping people. But, I stuck with it, learned as much as I could and now here I am over a decade later! In 2020 I became a certified yoga teacher and now I get to combine my love of massage and yoga to help bring integrated wellness into the lives of my clients!
