Master Massage Therapist & Licensed Esthetician

Melissa Long


This past year has been a significant one for me as I have made education a top priority. I am proud to announce that I am now a Master Massage Therapist, I'm Certified in Orthopedic Massage/Manual Therapy plus many hours of study in Lymphatic Drainage, Pain Management, Cranial Sacral Therapy and Scar Release Therapy. All this effort is to serve you better as I continue to learn more and more about the body and its’ function

Make a Difference

I am thrilled to offer my clients a wider range of knowledge and techniques to help them achieve optimal health and wellness. With my new qualifications, I am equipped to address a variety of issues such as muscle tension, joint pain, and post-surgery recovery. My continuing education has also allowed me to specialize in the treatment of orthopedic issues, which can be a debilitating for many individuals. I’d like to help bridge the gap in your medical care and self care; so you will utilize surgery as last choice in your recovery if possible.


I believe that education is a lifelong journey and I plan to continue expanding my knowledge and skills to better serve my clients. I am excited to see the positive impact that my training will have on those who seek my services. Thank you for entrusting me with your health and well-being, and I look forward to continuing to grow and learn alongside you.

You Deserve the Very Best

"My clients come first, you are my priority. Your comfort and satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me.  When I am with you, you have my undivided attention.  I do not believe in rushing, therefore I do not book back to back appointments.  Your session will be relaxing and stress free."
