A caregiver by nature, Melissa was naturally drawn to massage therapy as a means to nurture and improve the lives of her clients. She acquired her initial training from the Scott Lewis Health & Science Institute and earned her license to practice in 2002. Now, with almost two decades of experience in the treatment room, Melissa loves being able to share her skill and expertise with her clients to help them achieve healthier bodies and to manage their stress.
Melissa doesn't believe in "one-size-fits-all" massages. She carefully crafts individual treatment plans for her clients based on your initial consult, your current state of health, and verbal and kinesthetic feedback. She strives for balance in each program and often blends sessions of rehabilitating Deep Tissue Massage with alternate sessions of stress-reducing Aromatherapy and Swedish Massage. Melissa adamantly believes in the principle of sound body, sound mind.
As someone who values staying current and educated in her field of massage therapy, Melissa loves being a part of the team at The Refinery Skin Clinic. She appreciates that the entire staff is comprised of some of the most educated and credentialed providers in the skincare and wellness industry and believes this is the standard that clients should both expect and deserve.
