I enjoyed the stone message being incorporated! The adjustable bed was great for stretching out my low back, which seemed to enhance the message for one of my problem areas.

Asked a lot of questions to determine what muscles and joints needed attention. My back still feels better the next morning.

I have had rotator cuff surgery and still have problems. Mellisa knows just how to work the stiffness out and helps me live better. She is definitely on my schedule every month.

Mellisa has been my massage therapist for almost 18 years. She is truly gifted in many ways. I have had massages in Kansas City and many different areas across the globe, she is BY FAR the BEST! Do yourself a favor, and treat yourself to the experience. I promise you, you will be extremely grateful that you did.

Mellisa is incredibly skilled and intuitive. She listened well and delivered a highly therapeutic massage. I received some immediate relief for lower back/hip pain that had plagued me for over a year. The benefits continued after my visit as I noticed I was able to stand with good posture and no tension in my back. She followed up quickly with additional recommendations that have helped keep things loose and happy!
