I have been a licensed, practicing massage therapist for 13 years and I enjoy it more and more each day. I love giving the gift of massage and learning about the complexities of the human body. I believe that skilled bodywork increases awareness and helps to alleviate chronic holding patterns in the body which decreases pain and tension and helps brings the body back into balance. I hope to inspire people to love and care for themselves as much as they love and care for others. When we take time to breathe, to relax, to enjoy each moment, we are more present in all aspects of our lives. Take time and do something kind for yourself today, you are worth it!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Pressure was perfect. Toning forks on feet was nice. Really wonderful therapist
by Anonymous on May 23
I get massages regularly and this is the first massage I've had where the masseuse spent more time with hands off me vs. actual massaging. (lots of breaks...Preparing of rocks, sticks that were used to lightly tap my feet...which did nothing). Lots of starts and stops during the massage and the touch was the lightest I've ever felt. The massage was really disappointing as I was looking forward to a relaxing and therapeutic massage. One thing Melaney did remember to do was ask for a tip at the end.

She did not chatter too much like some therapist do. The music was not too loud & very soothing. She did Extra details like heat pacs for back & neck as well as a relaxing tuning fork on my feet. The whole experience was perfect.

Melaney always checks before starting where any trouble areas I have. She is extremely good at massage techniques and I always leave feeling relaxed and recharged. She has the best “mom” hands, don’t know how better to describe her touch.

She is great - always asks what is bothering you and tries to relieve any pain and issues.
