Hello, my name is Melisa.  I am the owner and licensed massage practitioner within the vibrant neighborhood of Kennewick Washington.  For 3 insightful years, I have been involved in the massage industry gaining experience with a spa and chiropractic office.  Later on, I branched out on my own, running my business now for a couple of years. 

Growing up I never thought that I would become a massage therapist because I could never see myself doing it as a career.  Also, I had a passion for pursuing a path into graphic and web design.  Like most practitioner’s my story starts out with family and friends asking me to massage them every time I walked into the room.  I was the only one that could last for more than 5 minutes.  After graduating high school, God called me to a small town called Buchannan Dam Texas.  A short time after I moved, I met my former partner that is a quadriplegic.  (A person affected by paralysis of all four limbs.)  Daily he would experience muscle spasm’s strong enough to throw him out of his chair, along with hypertension and pain.  As time passed I would notice how massaging him helped alleviate the tension and pain that he felt. By just massaging him I was astonished by the relief he would feel.  Slowly I fell in love with massage therapy and knew that this is what I wanted to do. 

I have been to two schools. The U.S. Career Institute and Victoria's Academy of Cosmetology finishing with 1,245 hours of school and hands-on experience.  As a bodyworker, I am able to develop a customized session that deals with your health and lifestyle concerns.  I offer a therapeutic approach to massage using Swedish massage, deep tissue, cupping, trigger point, acupressure, sinus drainage, restorative and rehabilitative sports massage.  With options of using aromatherapy or hemp oil.  I am a firm believer in the science and holistic properties of what essential oils and hemp oil can bring.  So, I became a Doterra Wellness Advocate for my essential oils and Prime My Body for my hemp oil.  Two companies I feel are at the top of their industry.  The best scientists and companies that truly want to help people.  In the future, I also plan to study and offer IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), kinesiology taping, an extended study into sports massage and orthopedic massage

My clients have told me that they call me exclusively for a number of reasons.  The most prominent reason being that they see results, not only immediately, but an overall increased sense in their wellbeing.  My promise to myself and to my clients is to constantly try to find different added ways that can help move you towards recovery.  With a big passion and love for what I do, I welcome you to my practice and would be delighted to assist you in your holistic health journey.
