Melissa graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2006. Her interests include sport specific massage which has allowed her to work with professional athletes and performing artists. Her training and background with injured and training athletes has allowed her to develop a unique skillset to also effectively treat the general population. Melissa's treatments include a personal assessment designed to achieve physical and mental balance.  She strongly believes that knowledge is prevention and with her education and training of anatomy, physiology and physical assessment she is confident in customizing each treatment for her client’s individual needs, both acute and chronic physical imbalances such as muscle, ligamentous, tendinous and facial injuries.
