Melissa specializes in very targeted treatment for trigger points and myofascial release that can be helpful for sports-related as well as chronic issues that often don't respond to a typical 'spa' approach. If you want a productive massage for a specific or stubborn issue, you may get great benefits from this focused type of approach. She has worked in a variety of settings including upscale therapeutic spas on the East Coast as well as internationally, and has even helped travelers and airline personnel in a busy NYC airport terminal. Melissa graduated from Acupuncture school in 2021 and is looking forward to expanding her post-graduate acupuncture expertise. If you are looking for a targeted acupuncture session for joint pain or acute muscle spasm, you can choose a 30-minute acupuncture add-on to her massage service. Her combination of East-West training gives her a unique perspective on how to understand and customize your targeted therapy session.
