Getting to know Michelle Sablan in Panama City

Hello and thank you for visiting my home on the web!

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Skin Care Specialist/Facial Specialist (aka esthetician) located in Panama City, Florida.


After my short career in the military, I chose a new path that would allow me to help people in a different way. In January 2007, I started school for massage therapy at the New York Institute of Massage and knew that I made the right decision. For the full story behind why I chose to become a massage therapist, click here. In January 2008, I graduated as Valedictorian of my class after receiving over 1,000 hours of training from the most awesome instructors, performing over 90 massages in our student clinic and contributing over 20 hours of community service. Upon graduation, I started my own practice in Buffalo, NY where I spent the next three years in absolute awe of how incredibly blessed I was to have such wonderful and loyal clients.

Seeking sunshine and sanity, my husband and I moved to our new home in Panama City in September 2011. With the timing just right, I decided to pursue another dream: skin care. I graduated from the Skin Care Program at A Step Ahead Cosmetology School of Bay County, Inc. of April 2012. As a person who does not have flawless skin (gasp!), I understand the struggles of having troublesome skin and am happy I am able to share my experiences and expertise to help people keeping their skin looking its best.

I absolutely love my  job and am committed to providing the best massage therapy and skin care services to every client that walks through the door.
