Melissa McLaughlin

Embrace and love your body, it's the only one you have

I've been interested in the mind, body approach for many years. Attending Spa Tech Institute for holistic massage therapy after gaining a bachelors degree in exercise physiology from UMass Lowell helped me gain knowledge of the anatomy very well. I specialize in relief of muscular pain experienced after an injury or accident, relief of sciatica pain and TMJ relief. I love nature and my pup Mya.i also do Reiki and Polarity therapy and offer spa services.

She listens to me and she knows what I need.

She is modifies the treatment sessions based on what's happening with my body. This time, she didn't do any circulatory work because I just had my first COVID-19 shot last Saturday. Instead, she focused on energy work.

First night I did not feel pain in my hip after visiting with Melissa today.

This was my first session with Melissa, and I am very impressed. I have been a massage therapist for 17 years, and was very impressed with Melissa's knowledge, skill and professionalism. I had an old injury that has flared up again, and came into my session feeling very uncomfortable. After just one session with Melissa, my discomfort had decreased substantially, and my range of motion has increased significantly. THANK YOU!! I am looking forward to subsequent visits with Melissa, and would feel very comfortable and confident recommending Melissa.

Melissa is amazing! Great at targeting problem areas and even if you forget to tell her she still finds them and takes care of them anyway.
