Nothing.

Addressed my many issues concerning a shoulder problem. Found the muscles that were causing the pain and through hard work relieved the tension. The result was a reduction of the pain and increase in the range of motion. Very, very pleased.

I've been struggling with sciatic nerve pain and possible piriformis syndrome which has caused me chronic pain for years. After two sessions with Melissa, I am experiencing significant increase in range of motion and pain relief. In addition to her knowledge and skill, Melissa also possesses a wonderful bedside manner.

She is amazing. Firm pressure, effective work, and knowledgeable with suggesting stretches and training exercises to help prolong relief because of her background as personal trainer and yoga teacher.

Massage started with Melissa going over intake w me, asking questions about my pain then told me her plan. She used heat packs on my back & neck to aid in relaxing muscles. Best massage ever. Used stretches on my legs, called it apart of Thai massage, placed warm rocks in my hands, spent extra time in the areas of need, and asked about pressure. Everything was wonderful. I bought a package and rebooked.

First hot stone massage and it 'melted' away aches and pains. Melissa checked in throughout massage to make sure stones were not too hot and was very relaxed afterwards.
