Thank you!

the only reason I amnot giving 5 stars total is because I have dad a massive neckache since i left, otherwise it would have been amazing. I tried the suggestions and cna't get my neck to loosin- it may just be a coincidence. Melissa was great- it was very different then I expected- i was thinking I was going in for a rub down and got something different and interesting. I will come back.

I like the way she takes the time to listen to your problems.

Melissa is fantastic! She can help you beyond just a massage with quality advice on stretches or simple things you can do at home to help work out issues between massages. For me it has been headaches on going since a car accident over a year ago, as well as hip and lower back issues. She is very aware of each patients needs and is always checking in when the work gets painful. She is one of my favorite people!

Melissa does an amazing job of working on the areas that need help. I've never been one to enjoy massages but following a car accident this is what the doctor ordered. Now I am a huge fan of massages from Melissa that get results and help improve my quality of life!

Melissa is very informative about what she is doing and why. She checks in with you all during the massage to make sure the pressure she is using is right for you.

Great massage. Melissa can use a firm pressure which can be hard to find! She used a variety of methods to address my problem areas and checked in on my comfort. I highly recommend!!
