About Us

Hello, everyone! My name is Melinda, you may also hear me called Mindy.  I have no preference to either.  I am a Shaman 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 work with clients who suffer from scoliosis, kyphosis, TMJD, migraines, peripheral neuropathy, shin splints, painful walking, rotator cuff issues and injuries, sinus congestion, and energetic blockages, just to name a few. 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 ...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Love!! Melinda is amazing!!

    Mindy did a great job listening to me talk about my pain then working it out. I can’t wait to go back!

  • Relaxing, healing and the best self care I’ve ever done.

    This was the best massage I have ever had!!

  • It took a minute to get an appointment but Melinda was well worth the wait! She's amazing! I didn't think anyone would be able to necessarily help my issue and I left with homework. I can't wait to go back!

    Amazing sense of finding problem areas and ability to progress to healing with her gift of awareness and massage to whole body Wellness.

  • She is magical and knows what areas to work on!

    Great deep tissue work, and was able to work on trigger points that others hadn't been able to reach.

  • 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!

    I’m looking forward to going back to Mindy!

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!

Melinda is amazing! She’s easily the best massage therapist I’ve seen for pain. I started seeing her for deep tissue and she’s really been able to help me see improvements in my pain. I highly recommend Melinda.
