Melissa's Story

Melissa August CMT Family Massage Therapist 

"Feel your mind and body melt in Melissa's healing sanctuary!"

 

Melissa's Mission

I offer a healing experience to melt away stress and pain through therapeutic massage. I work with men and women, but have a passion for working with families during and after the pregnancy year. I teach Loving Touch Infant Massage® to new parents and caregivers. Each session I make sure to communicate with each individual upfront about the focus of that day and strive to be centered and intuitive enough to feel the muscle or scar tissue that needs work. I try to sense the perfect amount of pressure allowing each muscle fiber to melt back into a normal perfect physical state to bring blood flow back into the area, and strongly encourage feedback. 

Melissa's Background

I have been a veterinary technician since 1996. In 2002 I was introduced to alternative medicine, and saw the speed and ease of recovery from surgery. My dog, Sasha, had her anterior cruciate ligament repaired. Pain medications, physical therapy, acupuncture, and massage were used during her recovery. I saw decreased drug use, decreased recovery time, and stress reduction. I realized through my training and also receiving massage on a monthly basis that routine massage is part of the physical and mental equation of being healthy. Massage brings balance to the body, along with eating healthy, exercising, drinking enough water, and getting enough rest.


Melissa's Training

I became a Certified Massage Therapist in 2004, licensed for massage in the city of Davis, and insured through ABMP. I am a member of the American Pregnancy Massage Association and the Capital City Doulas network as an affiliate. In 2012 I became a Certified Infant Massage Instructor CIMI® through the International Loving Touch of Foundation, a national accredited program. I am continually taking continued education courses to help my clients.
