Hello, my name is Melissa Nelson. Massage therapy has been my passion for 20+ years. I have been a licensed Therapist since 1991 and Nationally Certified since 1999. Early on in my life I found I had a natural desire to connect with people. After visiting China at the age 20, I found my interest drawn to the field of massage and bodywork, so I begun to educate myself before attending a massage therapy school. Through my years of experience I have learned how to assess my clients needs, allowing me to work on any age group from young to old. Though I specialize in Deep Tissue and Sports Massage, I am continually expanding my education in many different modalities, giving me a broad base of techniques in which to draw from. In turn this gives me the ability to cater every massage to each of my clients and their specific needs. Some of the different modalities I have learned are : Hot Stone Therapy, Sports Massage, Prenatal, Swedish, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Trigger Point, Lymphatic Drainage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Thai Massage, and Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques. Drawing upon all of these, I work with my clients to find what will give them the best relief from their aches and pains they are looking for, so that they may leave relaxed and free from their stresses.
I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to helping you with your massage needs.
