Mellisa started her career in massage in 1997. She studied at MTTI and Midwest Institute of Body Somatic Therapy. In 2001 she grandfathered into the Missouri Massage Therapy Laws, receiving her liscense. In 2012 she passed the MBLEx. A set of boards that were designed for new and current practioners in the massage therapy field.
 Throughout her career, she has practiced in many settings, private offices, chiropractors, and spas. She traveled with K-State's track team for several years and was on the Missouri Sports massage team. She was the past president and vice-president of NATB, a group of like minded practioners that gathered to exchange ideas. She does not have one method of training, but an eclectic education that is constantly evolving.
 She believes that getting caught up in one technique may not fit all. Listening to what her clients needs are is an important part of the healing and growing journey. It is important that manipulating the facsia is the only way that a sturctural difference can take place. Teaching clients self care techniques is an important part of what she stands for.
"I don't want to see clients with the same issue over and over again.
I want to have a constructive session with them and then for them to take their health and wellbeing into their own hands; take ownership. For them to do the work and make the changes."
 There are times when a full body is necessary to allow the client to understand where they are in their body and then there are sessions where you need to focus on an area. Massage should be a part of the health and wellness journey. When you have addressed what issues that one has in their tissues, you then can beging a regimen of massage for wellness vs getting out of pain. An active massage is far more effective than a passive massage.
