Lennen Chance is a licensed massage therapist and owner of Chance Holistic Therapy. As a graduate of AAIMT she became certified in Myofascial Therapy as well as Neuromuscular Therapy.

Chance Holistic Therapy takes an integrative and holistic approach when seeking treatment for imbalances and choosing a treatment plan for clients. What primarily distinguishes holistic healing apart from traditional treatments is that physical health is not necessarily the main focus. We focus on mind, body, and soul.
Holistic healing addresses all parts of the individual, not just the physical aspect of a person where manifested illnesses are most apparent. Holistic healing is not intended to serve as a “bandage” or a one-time fix. It is an ongoing journey of discovery in search of more answers and ultimately; better living, being healthier, and striving for wholeness.
Chance Holistic Therapy believes pain is merely a symptom of an imbalance. These imbalances could be a physical issue, the result of abusing the physical body through poor posture, lack of movement, or too little sleep. Or, the imbalance may be a result of mental, emotional, or spiritual needs not being met. No aspect (mind, body, or soul) of a person is overlooked when holistic treatment is sought. We look at the “whole person” in order to suggest a treatment plan.
The time to heal is now. Let us facilitate your healing process.
"A magical, intangible process, healing is an art, not a science."
I enrolled in the accredited Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy without ever having received a professional massage. The power of human touch was just something I had always been in tune with. I graduated in September 2007 and began my career as a Massage Therapist in January 2008. In 2009, I pursued additional training in Prenatal Massage fundamentals.
I believe that the body should be treated as a whole -- when the mind relaxes, the body will follow suit. With an approach that integrates relaxation techniques with both Neuromuscular and Myofascial Therapies, I treat every situation with a positive attitude and every client with care and compassion. Working with combined therapies assures that you'll find peace of mind and relief from pain.
When you enter my treatment room you're putting your trust into my capable hands and that is not a responsibility I take lightly. We'll discuss your concerns and work together to find a treatment plan that fits. I will help you rediscover balance, relieve chronic or acute pain, and encourage stress release. Your wellbeing is my top priority and I want you to start feeling results from the first time you visit. So breathe in, breathe out, relax. You're in good hands.
My Services Include: Therapeutic Massage- Using a combination of Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques, Therapeutic massage will relieve anxiety and stress, ease tight muscles, and start you on the path toward structural balance. Hot Stone Therapy- Experience the true meaning of bliss as heated basalt stones glide over tired and achy muscles using warmth rather than pressure to ease tension. Prenatal Massage- Prenatal massage helps to relieve muscle aches and cramping but also encourages relaxation and deep breathing -- happy mom means happy baby and may lead to an easier delivery.

Christina Lance – Integrative Massage Therapy –I was born with a gift that allows me to perceive issues that my clients may have, and to create a holistic approach to address those issues and help eliminate them.
As a child from the age of 12, I would massage my friends and family. As an adult, I was prodded by many to make it my career. I then attended the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy, The Polarity Center and The Upledger Institute to learn the theory and techniques associated with several forms of massage and related therapies.
This enables me to explain my perceptions to my clients and other medical/massage professionals in a way that they can understand. My passion in life is to help people feel better, as it is for many of us in the massage profession.
My sessions are truly unique, and aimed at addressing the client as a whole being- physical, emotional, and spiritual. I begin my sessions by assessing the client. I listen to your concerns, and adjust my intention to help alleviate them. I then listen carefully to what your body tells me it needs. Finally, I create a recipe unique to you that will allow for the utmost healing and balancing to take place during the session.
Prema Lindsay Smith
Inner Balance Therapy continues to grow from three decades plus of providing bodywork and a passion for the educational pursuits. The concept of Inner Balance Therapy developed over a decade ago as I learned to listen to the recipients‘ perceived or even unperceived concerns. Their body’s wisdom inspires me to be a seeker of knowledge, an investigator and a humble practitioner.
In the last three years, I have been training and practicing Thai massage. The yoga and sports-like stretching and mobilization techniques effectively incorporate ancient forms of body work as well as modern western techniques. Listening to the clients’ requests and their bodys’ language, directs the rhythm of a Thai massage session. Included but not limited to Myofascial (deep tissue), neuromuscular, reflexology, shiatsu and sports have been synchronistically incorporated. Experiencing a session brings a sense of balance and openness, freeing a person from stress and restricted pain patterns.
Prema's modalites include: Craniosacral Therapy, Facial Massage, Hawaiian Temple Bodywork, Hot Stone Therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Massage, Neuromuscular Treatment, Pregnancy Massage, Reflexology, Reiki, Shiatsu, Somatoemotional Release, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, and Thai Massage
I’m a 2011 graduate of Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy. I call my massage practice Atelier because I see it as a workshop where clients and I work together to discover the sources of their discomfort, agree on a treatment plan and discuss ways to prolong the benefits of the treatment.
Some of the modalities I practice include Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, Sports Massage and Swedish Massage.
Your first appointment includes a complimentary half-hour intake to determine a course of action and a one-hour massage.

He graduated in fall of 2011 and loves continuing to learn every day… and doesn’t plan to stop.

His unique approach specifically focuses on relieving chronic tension and pain to help the body begin to heal itself. Brian emphasizes in working in a collaborative effort with his clients both throughout and after the massage, to help them further understand their bodies and massage experiences, supporting them toward a better quality of life.
He also utilizes techniques of Reflexology with clients who need or desire a different approach of massage, or for clients unable to receive traditional forms of massage.
