Massage Therapy has been a passion of mine for the past 12 years.  My sessions are tailored to each individual, and every massage stroke has an intention. I tend to offer more muscle specific treatments, allowing for the muscles to relax, lengthen and allow you to feel more aware of your body.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Counseling services

by Don on Mar 17
Melissa is an absolutely fantastic massage therapist. Her professionalism and sensitivity is unparalleled. She, and her entire staff, are the very best.
by Sharon on Mar 03
Melissa is clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. I had told her before my massage about a recent injury. But I forgot to mention an injury from nearly a year ago that had largely healed but still causes occasional low-intensity but nagging pain when I lie down in bed -- to the extent that it often causes me to lay with my knees bent or place a pillow under my knees to alleviate the pain. During my massage, without any words spoken by her or me, Melissa had clearly found the old, somewhat lingering injury and spent time working that area. I noticed that night I was able to lie flat with straight legs and no pain for the first time in a very long time. Wonderful! I will certainly be back!

I liked the cupping more than the traditional deep tissue massage. I will be back for another on a regular basis. Great work very happy with the session.

I usually get a massage once every few months. I've been trying out all of the local massage parlors, trying to find my favorite one. Melissa is by far the best massage therapist I have dealt with. Her professionalism and skills are top notch. To say I was impressed is an understatement. You can tell she really has a passion for what she does. I am looking forward to working with her again.
