Education is half the battle in the fight against pain.

Alaskan born, I have lived here most of my life.

I absolutely love being here in Alaska, as it has always felt like home.
It was here that I went to Alaska Career College, going back into school in the pursuit of my dream job: Massage Therapy.

I graduated in 2008 and received my professional licensing.

This passion started with me, like many children, walking on my parents backs, rubbing shoulders, arms, and necks. It gave me a sense of accomplishment and I really liked the fact that, through touch, I could help people to actually feel better. How thrilled I was when I found out that I could make, not just a job, out of Massage, but an entire career based around it!

This has not been an easy road by any means, but the fact remains that every day that I do massage, is never a bad day. I have helped to bring those who thought that pain was just their life now into a state of actually beginning to heal and feel better in their day to day lives. It leaves me with a sense of warm achievement.

To this end, I focus my attentions on those in pain. Those who have chronic pain, either from an old injury or from chronic over-use, repetitive motions, surgery, headaches, migraines, back aches, and so much more. I want to help people figure out what their pain really stems from, get them on a plan, and help them get to a better place in their lives.

For the past three years, I have finally devoted myself full time to my profession, and I intend to go on until I no longer can! I have received additional training in Myofascial Release, Reiki Energy Work, Orthopedic Massage, Lymphatic Facilitation, Craniosacral Techniques, and many others, of which I use a combination to help combat pain where I find it.

I hope to see you on my table soon, let's take the journey together to end pain!

Mel was excellent to work with, And thoughtful. At the time of this review it’s just been one appointment.

Mel listens to you. When arriving, she asks how your body is feeling. She incorporates that information into the massage and truly helps you feel better.

Mel always gets to the root of my pain issues!!

Mel is an awesome masseuse. I feel so much looser today and I learned some new stretches. I look forward to returning. The only problems I had were 1. Too cold. A bed warmer would have helped. 2. The strobe light on her speakers. I just kept my head turned.

Mel knows exactly what and how to work on your body without the pain I’ve become accustom yo in previous massage therapy. She does it with such skill and grace, it seems she was born to do this work!

Mel's always amazing. She finds the tension spots where most massage therapists don't. I always feel I don't want my sessions to end.
