Melissa is a Board Certified ATSI practitioner and a total body nerd.
Discovering Anatomy Trains in massage school turned her perception of the body upside-down, giving her a new framework for approaching mysterious aches and pains and seemingly intractable postural and movement issues.
Through her private practice in Columbia, Missouri, Melissa offers a variety of tools to help her clients feel and live better in their bodies, including Anatomy Trains Structural Integration, deep-tissue and relaxation massage, and Reiki healing. She blends her movement experience as a Certified Personal Trainer and yoga practitioner into her manual therapy to aid clients in exploring new options in their bodies as they move throughout their day.
Melissa is also a professional sculptor and a published author. Her books include Living Reiki: Heal Yourself and Transform Your Life and Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Reiki.
