I have a talent and passion for helping and caring for people. I became a massage therapist because I saw the natural healing benefits of massage therapy. I have always been fascinated by the human body and the amazing healing capabilities we humans have when combined with the right touch and movements. I have a background in the medical field as a nurse and experience in physical and occupational therapy.  I was also on a professional sports massage team and a postoperative rehabilitation unit before coming to Body Wellness Massage Therapy. It brings me so much joy to see the progress and healing that takes place through massage therapy.

I love science and the holistic approach to wellness that massage therapy brings to the table. That is why I became a massage therapist in 2019. I have always enjoyed working with and helping people. I worked in the medical field as a medical assistant for 15 years prior to becoming a massage therapist. This helped to give me an in-depth understanding of the human body. I aim to utilize my skillset to positively affect my clients. It brings me so much joy to hear and see my clients’ successes through massage therapy.

Melissa

NC LMBT #16933

Georgia Massage School, GA 2017

Trained in Upledger Craniosacral, Medical Massage, TMJ, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, and Cupping

I was in and around the medical field in both the Army and the Navy and then again as I transitioned back to civilian life.  I had my first experience with massage therapy during a severely stressful time due to the death of a loved one.  Massage showed me the healing power of touch.  In the years that followed, I set out on my own healing journey and became well acquainted with how emotions; especially stress and trauma impact our lives and our health in very specific ways.  I began to build a toolbox for myself filled with tools that re-build peace, cultivate joy and release stress and trauma from the body, soul, and spirit.  Massage and Craniosacral therapy have given me a vehicle to best utilize those tools and my passion for bringing wholeness and healing to those led my way.    

 

I worked at Body Wellness for 2 years before the opportunity presented itself for me to become owner and I jumped at the chance to continue the legacy of providing targeted massage therapy to clients who need more than relaxation.  I thrive on challenge, learning and growth and will continue to build a strong team equally committed to excellence and to a peaceful and joyful atmosphere where healing thrives.

Trained in Sports Massage, Cupping, Myofascial Release, Gua-Sha (Scraping), Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Release and Stretching

 

I became a massage therapist after I sought out to heal my own injuries through increased self-care. Through these struggles I have been able to gain a deep understanding and desire to really help my clients heal and be the best they can be. Prior to becoming a massage therapist in 2021, I partnered with NASM and became a personal trainer specializing in human movement and corrective injury. It brings me so much fulfillment to see my clients progress and succeed.
