Melissa’s refuge offers a respite like no other, a serene place to escape the complexities that become overwhelming, a place to rekindle the peace, to rejuvenate the spirit.......

Melissa is amazing, in my first session she took away pain that two different doctors couldn’t. I returned for follow up sessions and am almost pain free from leg pain that I had for over a year, and now move beginning to move on to the cranial sacral portion of the program. I would recommend for anyone with chronic pain or just the need for peace in their mind

I always have an amazing experience at Bending Bridges. Melissa makes me feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. She does a great job with traditional massage and craniosacral work. I feel fantastic for days after I have an appointment and have found that it has helped me with both my anxiety and stress levels.

Melissa is truly gifted and a natural healer. After having 6 wks of PT for my injured shoulder and minimal improvement, I was ready for a new approach. With only one session of craniosacral and cupping therapy, I left there with zero pain and full range of motion! Several days later, I am still pain free. She is professional, with a caring and welcoming heart. I highly recommend experiencing a session with Melissa.

I've had 5 sessions so far & my body feels the "unwinding" going on. My hip had had pain for 12 years & now that's gone. We're now working on neck & head and I can feel positive changes. Others have noted that I'm calmer while dealing with the craziness Life throws my way. High recommend Melissa!
