“Amazingly wonderful massage. The best there is.” - Andrea Zacher, age 47

“She heard my concerns and respected my body while delivering an invigorating treatment. I enjoy her work tremendously.” - C.P., age 65+

“A massage with Melissa consists of equal parts magic, exorcism, and champagne bubble bath. If you’re experiencing muscular or psychic pain – or both – Melissa is the antidote. She will diminish your aches and pains substantially. You’ll emerge more limber and flexible, and you’ll feel the stress you’ve been carrying melting away. Whether you’re a massage rookie or a regular, Melissa is the real deal. Book now. No excuses. Just do it.” - Joanna W., age 60
