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 Bodywork or Coaching services

by Theresa on May 24
In my first session her musculoskeletal work unlocked long-standing crippling problems starting in my feet and traveling all the way through my hips. I hope she can make room for me to keep coming for a while. What an amazing experience. I had basically decided to live with my body in chronic misuse and pain. It’s been about 8 years. She’s so young to be so masterful!

Melissa is very warm and professional on all accounts, she is very knowledgeable on sports injury's and how to get results.

There was nothing that I disliked. Melissa is very professional. Soothing background music. It was my first visit with her and I will keep going for more. Christa

Melissa knows here stuff! As she's working, she can feel what's going on before I can explain to her what it is I'm feeling. I left feeling loose and energized, and the pain I'd been dealing with while running was gone my next time out. Would highly recommend!

Melissa is amazing- as someone who runs a lot, she can relate to the needs of active people- I would highly recommend her!

I enjoyed everything about my massage 100%. Melissa used just the right amount of pressure and really focused on my muscles that were tweaked. I felt both energized and relaxed after my session.

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!
