REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Yoga services

by Jackie on Jan 10
I had a ton of knots by my shoulder blades and she worked at them until they were completely gone. She was conscious of the parts of my body that are injured, and had a nice firm pressure when I told her I liked it on the firmer side. Another bonus- I also never talk during massages and I did with her the whole time. She’s a great massage therapist and fun to talk to :)

Melissa asked great questions before the session, made a game plan for the session and executed it perfectly. Very satisfied with the visit, booked a follow up!

Melissa is an amazing massage therapist and her Lomi massage was best massage I've ever had...and I've had a lot of past 20 years. It was relaxing and very therapeutic. Pressure was firm but not uncomfortably too deep. This is probably best massage for people who need deep work but have had time relaxing or someone who just needs to relax but still wants an effective massage.

Melissa is excellent, best massage therapist I've had ever! She works with you to make sure you get the best possible massage. Be that by, checking with you on how the pressure feels or recommending one of her other excellent massage therapists if they "specialize" more so in your problem area(s). If you are looking for an exceptional massage, a business that really looks out for you (i.e. doing whatever they can to make sure their clients get the best care) or a very thorough massage therapist, then I highly recommend Melissa and her business Integrative Massage Therapy!! You definitely won't be disappointed.
