Massage is not just a luxury.  I believe and understand how to implement the therapeutic benefits of massage for your body mind and spirit to find rest, relaxation and calm in this busy world.  Each massage is tailored to your individual needs.


I have worked in a variety of backgrounds in the massage field including spas, chiropractic office, wellness center, and hospice care. I work with clients that have all types of medical issues like Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer, special needs children, and scoliosis.  My most recent privilege was giving a waiting heart transplant patient a massage. 

Since entering the massage field it has lead me down a path of a more holistic life style. I have become certified in natural health. I am interested in herbal supplements and the healing properties of essential oils.  I love gardening, growing herbs, cooking with herbs and just being out side.  You may also see me out riding my bike when the weather permits.

REVIEWS for my Spa, Bodywork, or Reflexology services

by Joy on Sep 12
I appreciate how Melanie provides stretches and ways to proactively address my issues.
by Gail on Aug 28
The relief I experienced in my neck and shoulders after Melanie’s massage exceeds any comfort I’ve felt in a long time. She needed no directing; her trained hands knew where to go and what to do. She’s a good Rx for one with R/A & Osteo arthritis!

I was impressed with the whole massage. Good job Melanie!

Enjoyed the professional attention and skill. Also enjoyed learning about different services. The web site is easy. Location is great. Melanie made me very comfortable during the session.

Therapist reviewed my information ahead of time and knew what I liked/didn't like and followed those preferences. She did a great job working on my neck and shoulders and spent time working on my feet which I love but which is hard to get therapists to spend time on. Haven't had a headache since I had my massage and neck and shoulders much improved. The room was large, quiet and relaxing. I will definitely return to Ripple Effect Massage.

A very positive experience! I will definitely be back for more visits!

This was my first massage ever & I'm so grateful I got the recommendations of friends who are loyal customers of Melanie. I was very pleased with the entire experience & I will be back very soon!

Melanie is both professional and personable. A very comfortable setting with soft music combined with a skilled massage. Definitely going back to her.

I enjoyed the atmosphere but needed more of what I wanted which was a deep deep massage. All my tension was not released but I will give it another go
