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!

Melissa did a great job with a deep tissue massage that I needed after working out. She was able to relax the muscles and help them heal. The atmosphere and room was very clean and orderly. Total professional.
by Emily on May 24
Mel always does amazing body work. I have several body areas with issues and she is great at working all of them. I always walk away feeling like she did her best, and I know I will see great improvement, especially with regular sessions, or even just add on sessions to work on specific areas. She is very knowledgeable about the body's connective tissues, which makes her an amazing, effective, massage therapist. I am very confident in her abilities and always feel comfortable in her care.
