Melinda is great. My regular masseuse moved, and I've been looking for someone to go to on a semi-regular basis for my back/neck problems. When I arrived, we discussed what my problem areas were and what my goals were. The information sheet I filled out prior to my appointment helped this process as well. During the massage, she made sure the pressure was good and that I was comfortable. She used some stretching techniques in tandem with the massage that I have not experienced before, which I enjoyed. I booked two more appointments as I left. Melinda even checked up on me later that day to see how I was feeling. I would definitely recommend Melinda to a friend.

Thank you Lauren for your kind words and recommendation. I'm so glad you found me and I look forward to seeing you soon!

I learned about Melinda while going through my third month of physical therapy for a painful knee contracture. I had surgery on my knee in September, and complications left me with the very real possibility of a permanent disability. This, coupled with having just started a new job, meant I was also dealing with a ton of stress. Melinda is a truly gifted healer. Before my first session, I insisted that we should focus most of the time on my knee, but Melinda knew that some other parts of my body were in great need of relief as well. She was able to cover a lot of ground in the massage -- from my head, neck and back to some very targeted work on my knee -- and I walked out feeling as though someone had pressed my reset button. Melinda intuitively felt out exactly what was needed, and while she worked deep into the muscle and scar tissue around my knee, I never felt any discomfort. I went home feeling energized and far less anxious, and the gains that we made in my range of motion were noticed by both my physical therapist and surgeon.

Business response:

I'm very happy that massage is helping you make a full recovery!
