Melinda has worked as a therapeutic massage therapist for over 20 years. She earned a Degree in Asian Healing Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Heartwood Institute in Garberville, California. Melinda is skilled in various techniques, ranging from Swedish, Deep tissue and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage to Shiatsu, Jin Shin Acupressure treatments and Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage.
Melinda’s clients receive measurable results from her practice of combining techniques that suit their unique circumstances. She listens to her clients to discover the root of their concerns, and with her calm approach and healing touch, Melinda helps her clients achieve a state of relaxation and better health.
Melinda has taught Qigong and Tai Chi for over 10 years. This has helped her bodywork and massage clients expand their mind-body awareness through the practice of flowing movements that increase flexibility, range of motion, energy and relaxation. Melinda’s passion is to educate her clients in exercises they can do at home to extend the healing effects of the massage.
Melinda can also conduct a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) assessment of her client’s acute or chronic health conditions, when they schedule an appointment and complete the “Self-Assessment Health Profile” questionnaire (under the forms tab).
