Melissa Tallman

Take care of yourself, so you're at your best to take care of others.

Owner and CEO of Escape Away Massage. 

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.

Love what you do, and you'll never work a day in your lif...

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.

Melissa Tallman is the standard I judge others by, she is professional friendly and sincere when helping with a sore back and muscles. Adrienne Young is also my favorite as she displays all these same qualities.

I have worked with many massage therapists. I have not minded any therapist from Escape Away Massage. When given a choice I tend to choose Melissa due to her professionalism, consistency in pressure and knowledge in her profession.

Melissa is very professional and her skills are top-notch. I have absolutely no complaints and have the utmost respect and regard for her and her staff. I have had the opportunity to visit several massage therapists through my place of business and Melissa was by far the best therapist. I cannot give her enough praise.
