About MERCI Massage
Here at MERCI Massage, we provide the perfect blend of therapy and relaxation. With locations in both Redford and Canton, MERCI Massage was founded by owner, Madeleine Dechy. Madeleine loves to help people and has actively sought a team of massage therapists that share her passion and enthusiasm. MERCI Massage has experienced exceptional growth over the years by providing excellence in massage therapy and customer service that is second to none. When you find your passion, working every day doesn’t feel like work. Madeleine’s belief that customer satisfaction is the highest priority propels MERCI Massage into the company it is today.
Long before Madeleine opened the doors at the first location in Redford Township, she found that she had a knack for massage. For friends and family, Madeleine shared her gift. Along the way, encouragement to start a company and share these gifts became common. She invested in certifications and training to hone her craft. Above all else, Madeleine desired to learn more about massage therapy and the human body to improve her already developed talents. With the support of her family and faith, Madeleine took the jump and opened the doors to the general public. Madeleine attributes her success to God, the support of her family, and the referrals given by the satisfied customers who come through her doors.

MADELEINE M. (Paquette) DECHY, BA, NCMT, ABMP
OWNER, Senior Level Massage Therapist
Howell High School and EMU alumna, her earliest memories are massaging her siblings; as the 9th of 13 children, she was off to a great start! Graduated with an Advanced Training Certificate from the prestigious Health Enrichment Center, she has 17,000+ hours of experience spanning three decades. When you meet her it will be evident that her passion still grows stronger and brighter each day. A former high school French teacher, she works in a beautiful massage room that brings Paris to you.
What does her favorite session look like?
Madeleine enjoys the opportunity to hear your body’s story and then implement different modalities, depending on what she discovers, as her expert hands work through your tissues. Each customized massage is a unique combination of science and art. As one client puts it: “Madeleine’s massages are like snowflakes, no two are ever the same.” As her anointed hands investigate, it might sometimes feel more like relaxation, at other times you will breathe through the work, or you will be an active participant with active releases. She encourages and educates on the importance of receiving regular, thorough, full body sessions (scalp to fingers to toes), which is the most effective for preventive maintenance and the management of chronic pain and stress. She specializes in pain management, treating headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder pain, and in preventive maintenance.
As a wife, mother of five, business owner, active in the business community and in her local community, Madeleine is a true example of how getting regular massages and taking care of oneself is one of the best ways to take care of others and to be the best version of you!
