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!

Melanie is a vey warm and skilled professional, who seems to know just what I need a moment before I do. Her intuition is really remarkable. I have been getting professional massages for close to 30 years, and I consistently get some of the best I've ever gotten from Melanie. Her craniosacral therapy sessions are magical. I plan to keep getting massages from her as long as she keeps giving them!

Melanie worked with my schedule and fit me in on a day she doesnt normally work. In addition to that, she respected everything I had to say about my body and adapted her plan to meet those feelings. She has a slow technique, which is different than I have experienced in the past, but it came as a lovely treat-- I felt like jello afterwards. She is the only massage therapist I will see for a while and I have already recommended her to several friends. It takes talent to be a healer (vs. massage being a 'job") and I believe Melanie has this gift.

Melanie's touch is knowledgeable and intuitive. I needed gentle support post-injury and got what I asked for and more. It was a really good first experience.

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.
