Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I had a wonderful massage and was surprised how much better I felt! I had never had a cranial-sacral massage so I wasn't sure how much it would effect me. Melissa was great!

    Melissa listens with her heart. She is a compassionate person. Simply being in her presence uplifts me.

  • Melissa's light touch and intuitive sense have been a positive compliment to our family's traditional medical care. Sometimes a CranialSacral session greatly reduces pain, but most times it completely eliminates the pain associated with auto-immune disorder flare-ups and migraine headaches. I frequently recommend her to friends and family.

    Melissa is ALWAYS very professional and friendly. I've been seeing her for quite some time now for both CST and massage and I haven't had a session yet that I don't feel completely relaxed and refreshed afterwards. Would (and have!) recommend her to all my friends!

  • All of the above.... wealth of knowledge...& compassion...I am grateful & enjoying every experience with Melissa ?

    What a wonderfully relaxing experience my session was. Cranio/Massage/and cupping (which I have never had before). Melissa is so down to earth and easy to be around, it's completely natural to trust her skills. Thank you for YOU
