Make massage a part of your health care/self care routine



My love of wellness shows in the work that I do with clients. Along with being licensed as a massage therapist; I hold a personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise and have a specialty certification in orthopedic fitness.  I have a genuine passion for helping people reach healthy goals for their body. I believe that every day there is something to be learned and that no two bodies are the same. Every person is treated as the unique individual that they are.
I have lived in the Rogue Valley for 25 years. I love to run and I participate in many of the local races; from 5k to half marathons. Running is what I love to do and I encourage and motivate others to find healthy activities that they love. I enjoy being a part of the community and interacting with a variety of people.

Doesn't not distracted you with a lot of chatter, and knows her stuff.
by Katy on Aug 11
Melissa is well grounded in her profession and actively listens to her clients
by Sheila on Jul 21
I had fallen and my body was tight. I knew a massage soon after the fall would be beneficial and shorten my recovery. Melissa made an extra effort to fit me into her schedule. She gave me some simple actions to do to help my body recover. Her empathy to my injury, her massage and her feedback what to do to continue healing makes me grateful and why I will have another by her.
