We invite you to try a session with Melissa today.
My style is a blend of trigger point, deep tissue, Swedish, and myofascial techniques. I'm interested in working with as many different types of people as I can, so that I can continue to learn and grow as a therapist. I especially enjoy working with people suffering from upper back pain. The techniques I've mastered so far have amazing results! Trigger Point techniques are so interesting for me to do, it's always amazing to me to see muscles visibly unwind under my hands (or elbows!) and my clients leave feeling so much better. I want to help you feel better! If you have lower back pain, upper back pain, wrist or shoulder pain, or just want to relax I'd love to invite you to book with me!

Best massage I've ever had! Had a 90 minute hot stone massage with Melissa. She was professional, great at communicating and regularly checked in on my comfort level. Highly recommend!
I would highly recommend working with Melissa! She is attentive, and intuitively works with your body for the best experience. I have a lot of physical traumas in my body that have hindered me from enjoying life. Working with her has been incredibly freeing.
Melissa is amazing! Had my first massage ever today, Melissa was so professional and did amazing work!!! Will be back for sure!!!
