Make massage a part of your health care/self care routine



My love of wellness shows in the work that I do with clients. Along with being licensed as a massage therapist; I hold a personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise and have a specialty certification in orthopedic fitness.  I have a genuine passion for helping people reach healthy goals for their body. I believe that every day there is something to be learned and that no two bodies are the same. Every person is treated as the unique individual that they are.
I have lived in the Rogue Valley for 25 years. I love to run and I participate in many of the local races; from 5k to half marathons. Running is what I love to do and I encourage and motivate others to find healthy activities that they love. I enjoy being a part of the community and interacting with a variety of people.

REVIEWS for my Coaching or Bodywork services

by Jerry on Nov 08
Melissa’s massage skills are superb.It is uncanny how she finds just the right areas that my body needs beyond the obvious trouble spots. Truly therapeutic massage.

Melissa, Is a knowledgable person in reading my body. I came in with a pulled muscle and she was aware of what would be helpful and healing and what wouldn't. The day after my massage I can walk correctly rather than compensating for the injury. This will help prevent other problems in the future . I gave a good for ambiance because she is still "creating" her new office space but the massage room is lovely, quiet and peaceful.

Melissa pinpointed spots that needed fine-timing with 100 percent accuracy. She was very intuitive and very skilled, I will certainly keep going to her!

Melissa is really good at listening and figuring out where the sources of a lot of chronic pain comes from. She is also very long-term focused and likes to suggest things that help facilitate healing in your daily life, as well as customizing treatments to be as effective as possible.

My shoulders and lower back have been bothering me and after 60 minutes of the "good hurt" I felt so much better. Thank you Melissa!
