Melanie Simmons, Owner

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.

I appreciate focused work on acute and chronic injuries and affected structures as well as deeply healing relaxation massage. As a working LMT since 2007 with experience in both Spa and medical settings, I found a balance between the two that is ensures a truly satisfying wellness experience.

At Mend – We work with intention. We will take the time to listen to your body’s feedback and pull from our experience to respond appropriately. Our work is respectful of your needs at that time. We work deep without being invasive. This is your massage. You are our guide as we are yours.
