Hi, I am Mel. I was born in Portland Oregon and lived primarily in Oregon and Washington growing up. I have been in practice as a LMT for eleven years and am licensed in both Oregon and Washington.
I graduated from Ashmead School of Massage and have taken many continuing education courses including: Clinical Evaluation of Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Spine, Yamuna Body Rolling, Thai Massage Level one and level two. Prenatal & Postnatal Thai Massage and Cranial Sacral Therapy 1.
I have had my own business for eleven years, with some time off to stay home with my wonderful daughters. My practice is in Oregon City, Oregon, but I also do outcalls to businesses where I offer chair, table or mat massages.
In my practice I primarily deliver “hate me now, love me later” massages. They are deep tissue, therapeutic massages in which I combine massage and stretching together as a treatment. It is important to me to educate my clients/patients to care for themselves.
I can also deliver a nice, relaxing energetic massage when needed. My “job” is very rewarding and it is a great honor to help people feel better, move better and live better. When entering massage school my goal was to be an “energetic healer”. I am a Reiki master (energy work). The soft music, incense, candles and crystals drew me to the art of massage, but after starting coursework, I fell in love with the clinical side.
It is professionally and personally rewarding to help people with ailments and start them on the road to recovery after an injury, by giving DEEP “getting down to business” type of massages. My hands are warm and inviting but firm and strong. My clientele consists of young children to elderly adults, marathon runners and body builders to couch potatoes. I have something for everyone!
I am excited to be a Dot Bot and look forward to serving you!
