certified deepfeet therapist
Working with a variety of clients, I focus on stress reduction, and relief from muscular tension. My goal in every massage is to provide my clients with therapeutic, compassionate touch, as well as improvements to physical and emotional health. Each service is tailored to meet client needs.
Since moving to Roanoke I have taught in local massage schools, ran student clinics, and have worked in various spa environments. Prior to attending massage school I received my B.A. from Mary Baldwin University. I also currently perform in several bands in and around southwest VA.
I have been practicing massage therapy since graduating from MTI, St. Augustine Florida in 2001. I have been trained in a variety of techniques, including Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, pregnancy, and most recently Ashiatsu. Body Bee LLC opened in June 2018. The name comes from my own - Melissa - which is Greek for "honey bee".
