Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Melanie works magic! Like, for real magic.

    Very pleasant environment and everything was done to make me feel very comfortable on my first visit

  • The space is beautiful, and Melanie is wonderful! When I lamented that I'd forgotten to bring my rose quartz along, she unearthed her own supply of crystals and laid them out under the table for the duration of my massage. (Healing can come in so many forms, and Melanie is equipped for all varieties!)

    I have been receiving treatment from Melanie for 4 years now. I came to her with arm, shoulder and lower back pain - when I first met her I was having trouble opening my hands without a lot of pain - over the past 4 years I have not only received skilled and effective treatment, but I have gained a companion and advocate for personal health and healing. Melanie is a sensitive and sincere therapist that offers multiple techniques that can be tailored to fit your body, mood and comfort level. I could not recommend Melanie enough.

  • Loved the calming atmosphere!

    Such an incredible place, the whole atmosphere radiates tranquility and relaxation, the beautiful plants, the personal and cozy feel. Its stress relieving just to walk in the door. Melanie's amazing skills and the tranquil private feel create a hidden oasis in JP.

  • This is the place to go for a relaxing and stress relieving massage. Located in a beautiful building in Jamaica Plain close to some of the best brunch spots in Boston, you will want to make visits to Incompass Wellbeing a regular part of your schedule. They also have great deals on massage packages to make it easy and affordable to come back often.

    Overall excellent care.

  • The lower rating for ambiance has more to do with the location of the massage - a large, spare room in an office building. There's really nothing that can be done to fix it.

Really enjoyed the massage and can highly recommend Melanie!
by Cole on May 08
Melanie is skillful, knowledgeable, thorough, and incredibly intuitive. She does an excellent job of concentrating on specific areas of tension while incorporating a wholistic and integrated approach to the body. As a queer and non-binary trans person, I've also felt completely safe and welcome in her care.

The massage was so great! Exactly what my body needed.
by Victoria on Apr 18
I cannot believe the relief in my jaw and shoulders, I clench my teeth when I sleep and it creates a lot of tension all down my neck. Melanie is not only skilled but also has remarkable intuition, she seems to get a real sense of what your body needs and will taylor what she is doing to fit. I have received many massages in my life, but never ones that are so personally crafted to help my body.

Melanie is literally the best masseuse in Boston. When you visit her you will understand why she has been given this title by Expertise. She is very professional and friendly and cares about your overall health and wellbeing. I have a slipped disc in my thoracic spine and so it can be hard to find a masseuse who can give me the deeply relaxing massage I am looking for without triggering pain from my injury. Melanie is very considerate of this and knows just how to accommodate my requests and concerns. I've never felt better than when I leave a massage from Melanie. It is amazing how she can always tell what sorts of tasks I was doing at work just by feeling the tension in my muscles! For the best massage in Boston I can only recommend Melanie at Incompass Wellbeing!

Responsiveness. Thoughtful and intential care.
by Tania on Jan 06
I went to Melanie Peterson for a 75 minute massage to work out stress and she was amazing! I had a lot of stress built up in my neck and jaw; and, by the end of the massage I felt very relaxed and rejuvenated. She also worked out tightness in my hips from extensive driving. After the massage Melanie showed me some stretches to do on my own. I have already scheduled another appointment!

Business response:

Thank you for your review. The room that your company provided for the massages was rather large. I was happy to be able to adjust the lighting and temperature though! Take care :)

If you're contemplating getting a massage but something keeps getting in the way, go to Incompass Wellbeing with Melanie. Its in a home, which might freak some people out but the massage therapist is worth it and there is a specialized room that is clearly used for business. I cant say enough good things about the massages I have received here, and the prices are very reasonable. Worth every penny!

Melanie was soothing from the moment she welcomed me. The space is clean, professional, and calming. I walked in with stress and ache. The therapy massage felt like a reset button. Today I feel like a new, calmer, and more centered person. I already made a follow up appointment for next week.
