About Us

Hello, everyone! My name is Melinda, you may also hear me called Mindy.  I have no preference to either.  I am a certified Shaman, a certified hypnotherapist, and a NC Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist.  I believe in using education and intuition to help facilitate healing for my clients. The clients I see have a variety of aches, pains, ailments, and disabling conditions that they need help managing. 

I firmly believe that muscles are more than just tissue, and have found that by acknowledging the individual and their personal experiences, that I have been able to work more deeply with each client and their individual needs. I offer a mixture of services for those who just want the bodywork, those who would like a mixture of bodywork and energetic healing, and those who just want ...

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Melinda actually had a relationship with my muscles. Fixed my shoulder in one session but I go on a regular basis to maintain my leg muscles.

    Melinda is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does.

  • Mindy transformed my very stuck shoulder today. I feel like a new person! She's kind, welcoming, warm and very talented. She checked in with me several times to be sure I was doing ok. Tested some movements and did more work to get things where they needed to be. Such good work. <3

    Without a doubt, the BEST.

  • The best neuromuscular body work!!

    The best masseuse I have ever had

    Melinda is an exceptional masseuse who completely met my expectations.

  • Targeted, renewing, excellent.

    Melinda is an absolute genius and expert of her craft. She is responsive to your body in ways that are hard to find in a massage therapist while being incredibly respectful and gentle when she needs to be. The only massage therapist that I insist on seeing and encourage anyone I talk to to visit.

Absolutely the best massage I've ever had! She found all my tight muscles, some that I didn't even know I had, and worked them all. I was sore the next day, which means she did an amazing job!

With an amazing intuition and awareness, Mindy finds the areas that need attention most and applies the perfect amount of pressure at those spots and throughout the entire massage. I very highly recommend!!

It was a great experience. I wish she would have reminded me to drink plenty of water afterwards. The massage therapist that I went to in the past, always gave me a bottle of water at the end of the massage. That would be a nice addition.

Business response:

Thank you soo very much!!! You are correct about the water. Water helps us to move what was released during our session through our system, and I need to remind clients of this.

I always feel better physically and emotionally whenever I have a session with Melinda. Both of my sons (17 and 22) have also had sessions with Melinda and were very pleased. The oldest was a college athlete and said her massages were better than anyone else's he had tried, including those provided at the college level. This is part of my monthly self care, especially now!

Business response:

Thank you soo very much, Janis!!! I look forward to working with each of you again!
