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.

Great experience. Melissa really targets the problem areas and works through them very thoroughly! Best massages I've ever had and I've had quite a few over the years!

I've had a lot of massages and this one ranked up there with the best. Melissa not only listens to what you tell her, she also listens to what your body is telling her and makes sure she meets those needs.
by Dave P. on Nov 22
Melissa is terrific at locating my trouble spots and getting the knots out. She is also great at recommending stretches and other things I can do at home to relieve tension.

I love the atmosphere. Mellisa seems to know just what areas need attention.i always leave relaxed and with a better range of motion. Sometimes I am sore in the areas she's worked on. But that's why I go, It's therapy for me.
by Pauline P. on Nov 03
I have had massages from different places and this is the Most Amazing. She is very good at working on specific areas of need. She doesn't just relax you she treats the problems in my back, or my arm., etc. I highly recommend Studio Unwind.

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!
