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.
