Who We Are

MELANIE SIMMONS

LMT 14771

I came to a career in bodywork following my studies in dance at the University of Oregon where I earned my Bachelors of Science degree.  My intense exploration of movement, breath, collaboration, and expression brought forward a mind body connection in my everyday experience in and out of the dance studio.  I found that through massage I am able to guide others to this place of awareness, acceptance, and constant flow of shifting change that occurs within us all.

With experience in both spa and clinical settings,  I have found a balance between the two that is satisfying and effective for my clients. I appreciate focused work on acute and chronic injuries and affected structures as well as deeply healing relaxation massage.  

I work with intention.  I will take the time to listen to your body’s feedback and pull from over ten years experience to respond appropriately.  My work is respectful of your needs at that time.  I work deep without being invasive.  This is your massage.  You are my guide as I am yours.   

I utilize Deep Tissue work, Myofascial Release, Swedish, Thai massage, Trigger Point, Pre/ Postnatal massage,  as well as other modalities such as Cupping Therapies and Gua Sha.  I have extensive experience with Motor Vehicle Accident patients and their recovery needs.

Please feel free to call with any questions.  I am happy to bill insurance for MVA clients as well as other clients with personal insurance that covers massage therapy.

I began my career in Massage after studying Herbalism and holistic health care since 2012. I grew up taking dance classes and practicing yoga which infused my life with the importance of movement and proper body alignment. 

Healing isn’t linear, and true healing only begins when the body is in a relaxed state. I’m here to facilitate your body’s own innate healing capabilities through intuitive touch while assessing body conditions and pinpointing areas of pain or sensitivity to alleviate. I utilize a blend of swedish massage, deep tissue, myofascial release and trigger point therapy to create a customized session that fits each client. I have special interest and training in pregnancy and postpartum massage.
