Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • 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 know what my body needs, where the where tension is, and how to address it.

  • personally I am a light person, so no windows woiuld be difficult for me to work in, but then I am there to close my eyes and relax! Massage as usual just fabulous!

    Melissa have so much knowledge about the muscle function and work perfect. Can't be better.

  • 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!

  • Melissa completely relieved my pain symptoms within a half hour appointment. She got me in last minute, which I totally appreciate!!! She definitely knows the body mechanics! Precooked ahead for more bodywork!!! Thank you Melissa!!!

    I liked everything especially the foot massage.

Was good, until last 10 minutes when it was GREAT. Melissa found some spots near the end that released a bunch of tension. For a first time, I consider this really good. She was getting to know and diagnose what's happening. Looking forward to more sessions.

As a runner who is almost always has a specific muscle group that needs work, having a massage therapist that is knowledgeable on how different muscle groups interact and skilled enough to find areas that need work is essential. After an extensive, years-long search across Jackson County, I am so grateful to have found Melissa. She makes the whole experience about me, asking lots of questions and creating each session focused on my needs (and needs I didn't even know I had). After each session, she goes the extra mile, teaching me stretches based on what she discovered during the message that I can do on my own. I'm so grateful for her professionalism and her total focus on helping me achieve my goals. I could not recommend Melissa more highly.

I have been receiving professional massage therapy services for 35 years. Both back on the east coast and here in the Rogue Valley. I have been receiving Massage Therapy form her for the last 4 years. Melissa is hands-down the very best therapist I have ever had. Melissa is highly knowledgeable and skilled not only in her craft, but the human body in whole. I'm a very active paraplegic and use a wheelchair full time. Melissa has been more beneficial than Physical Therapists have been in keeping this body from feeling the abuse I give it. Melissa Is more passionate about your body than you, she is very energy aware and that transfers through her work. Melissa will often find area's on me that need much work that i wast not even aware of. She is Professional, Compassionate, her skill level in her craft is unmatched and you will not find a more personable passionate therapist than Melissa.

She had amazing transitions that relaxed me and got productive work done without ever making me tense up! This is no small feat with someone like me. I have MS and fibromyalgia, and I call myself “princess and the pea” because my body overreacts to just about everything. I highly recommend her to anyone, but especially someone who needs a gentle but effective touch.

Melissa is a quiet person who's presence is healing. She has remembered to place a small amount of peppermint (?) on a cloth because my nose gets clogged when I am face down. I just mentioned the problem and she solved it quickly. This is done every time now. Important comfort to me. This is a gift of listening and responding.

I'm an incomplete paraplegic and wheelchair user since 1974. I have been a recipient of massage therapy for close to 30 years now. I have lived on the east coast and for the last 4 years I have called the beautiful Rogue Valley my home. Melissa is by far the best therapist I have been to and will, as long as I'm living here. Melissa is the highest skilled therapist and her knowledge in the human body far surpasses anyone I have been a patient of in the past decades.

Melissa was very friendly when checking me in. She asked about problem areas and my preferred amount of pressure during the massage. Her massage room was simply decorated and had relaxing music, which added to the experience. Melissa provided a wonderful massage. In particular, I enjoyed the work she did on my shoulders, neck, and head. Melissa was recommended to me and I understand why. Thank you.

I had fallen and my body was tight. I knew a massage soon after the fall would be beneficial and shorten my recovery. Melissa made an extra effort to fit me into her schedule. She gave me some simple actions to do to help my body recover. Her empathy to my injury, her massage and her feedback what to do to continue healing makes me grateful and why I will have another by her.
