About Us

Connected Bodywork isn't your average massage. By providing a more dynamic approach, we cater each session to the individual client's needs.

Connected Bodywork therapists specialize in barefoot massage therapy. We have trained with some of the top leaders in the barefoot massage industry and believe that this work takes a new approach to working smarter, not harder. By using our feet we are able to provide a deeper, more consistent pressure without the pain of pokey elbows or knuckles.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • The space is home-like - comfortable, clean, quite, and located in a vibrant neighborhood in mid-town St. Louis with free parking close by. Numerous popular restaurants are just a block or two away, and there is a float studio in the same building.

    I love the ambiance and peaceful atmosphere at Bodywork and the friendliness of the staff.

  • I disliked nothing.

    From beginning to end...it was a stellar experience! Thank you Melissa and team!

  • I'm convinced Melissa has magic powers. I regularly show up, beat down by work, parenthood, and a crazy busy life - and she goes out of her way to make me feel welcomed and relaxed. I leave feeling refreshed, and considerably less stressed. I genuinely look forward to my time here, it's so peaceful - and becoming kind of sacred in my schedule. A++ experience every visit.

    Beautiful place, great price. Smells amazing and very relaxing ambiance. I will be coming back!

  • Beautiful place in a great part of town, everyone should see for themselves how wonderful these people are.

    I love the new space - such good energy and amazing people!

  • I was a bit chilly during the massage. This could have been because the heat wasn't working then???? Either way, next time if you could bump the heat for me I would love that. This was a great massage. Thank you.

    Connected Bodywork's facility is new and beautiful. The atmosphere is relaxing and warm. The table is very comfortable and heat is available if you want it. They use the best smelling oils in their infusers. Very welcoming and friendly. Pricing is very fair and reasonable. Your overall health is a priority for them. They care about their patients.

I have been getting massage therapy from Melissa for over five years, starting after I had spinal surgery for severe sciatica. Melissa is very attentive to therapeutic needs of the present, and gives great advice on exercises to do to help my condition. I get 120 min sessions at least twice a month and they keep me going despite severe spinal stenosis.

It was an incredible experience, from beginning to end. The commitment to excellence and Melissa's knowledge of the work she does was clearly evident in the treatment I received. Her calming spirit, the care she took to assure I was comfortable, and her flawless technique made it perfect in every way. Thank you.

It was amazing! Melissa was very professional and did an outstanding job. It’s very evident she loves her job and has a passion for massage. No way my feet could do that!

She finds knots you don't know you had. This woman is an artist. You'll never go back to traditional massage.
by Claire on Feb 07
Melissa is the best massage therapist I’ve ever had. She’s so intuitive and good at what she does.

You rock lady! This was such a different experience. So much deeper. I will keep on singing your praises.

Allie is amazing at what she does, she is remarkable at her job and always makes me comfortable and at ease.

Alicia is the best Ashiatsu therapist that I have ever used. I have been having Ashiatsu messages for about 2 years now due to back and joint pain but didn't find relief until I found Alicia. Alicia uses a combination of Ashiatsu and Thai. Adding some of the Thai moves stretches my muscles and has really improved my flexibility. I tried many other options before finding Alicia with very minimal results in my pain level. Alicia has improved my life so much by alleviating my pain which allows me to do all the things I haven't been able to do in years! The other benefit is that the time that I spend with Alicia is relaxing and allows my body and my brain some down time. Relaxing for an hour or more has been so invigorating and refreshing. I can't thank Alicia enough! She is awesome!
