My intention is to help guide you in finding your inner-compass. When reconnected to the self, you can experience an increased sense of overall wellbeing, reduction in physical discomfort, increased awareness and profound mental clarity. By learning to trust that what you feel is true, your natural intuition can lead you on your own unique path to healing.

I believe self-care is of the utmost importance and guide clients on how to stay on their path to wellness between appointments, by offering plenty of additional tools and resources. My experience in bodywork reaches a wide array of people from athletes, office workers and manual laborers to those with Parkinsons, MS, and hospice patients. I graduated from the Cortiva Institute in Watertown and have completed several yoga teacher trainings with the Baptiste Institute.

WORKPLACE Massage

Even a brief massage visit can significantly improve employee problem solving abilities. A recent study in American Psychologist gave one group of workers a 15 minute rest, and another, a 15 minute massage. The group that received massage performed significantly better on complicated tasks like math problems. Massage also improves creative thinking and relieves fatigue. By lowering stress, workplace massage helps eliminate absenteeism, making your team more competitive. 

 

Book for a special event or schedule regularly (weekly or monthly) to see the most benefits. Massages can be paid for by the company, the employee or a split between the two. We can work together to choose the best options for your particular event. The therapist can bring a massage chair or table, depending on preference, the location and duration of massages.

Testimonials


Testimonials


"I have been receiving treatment from Melanie for 4 years now. I came to her with arm, shoulder and lower back pain - when I first met her I was having trouble opening my hands without a lot of pain - over the past 4 years I have not only received skilled and effective treatment, but I have gained a companion and advocate for personal health and healing. Melanie is a sensitive and sincere therapist that offers multiple techniques that can be tailored to fit your body, mood and comfort level. I could not recommend Melanie enough." A.B.

“The ambiance was incredibly relaxing and comfortable. The experience helped me decompress and helped alleviate some of the pain I was experiencing. I liked that Melanie walked me through the process. It made me feel comfortable. It also definitely helped my pain.” T.J

“Melanie has a wonderfully intuitive touch, whether massaging a part of my body, or holding my head in her hands. I trust her. And very importantly felt so much better when I left. The pain I had has virtually gone.” C.M.

“Always feel reset and recharged after a massage with Melanie!” J.H.

“Melanie is an absolutely gifted body worker. I am a long-time consumer of massage therapy, and can honestly say I have gotten the best massages of my life from Melanie. She has also converted me from being a die-hard deep tissue massage fan to craniosacral. I leave a session with her feeling grounded, balanced, relaxed and pain-free.” J.B.

“Melanie is so skilled and a healing presence. Really helped my body let go of a migraine! Awesome place to get bodywork!” A.B.

"Melanie works magic! Like, for real magic." A.P.

“Melanie is absolutely wonderful and a very talented massage therapist. She has a gift of being able to listen to how the body responds and adjusts her therapy accordingly. Not only are her sessions incredibly relaxing, but they focus on healing and rejuvenation.” A

“Melanie's massages are magical. I've been getting massages on and off for years for chronic neck and back pain, and I'm very picky. She is highly skilled, intuitive and professional. I plan to be a loyal customer for life!” J.B.

“Powerful healer. Intuitive. Thoughtful.” C.C.

“Melanie's confidence in her skills made for a lovely session.” L.P.

"What a beautiful massage space! Peaceful, calming, and so inviting. Exactly the type of space I enjoy being in for an experience like this." J.H.

“Melanie is a vey warm and skilled professional, who seems to know just what I need a moment before I do. Her intuition is really remarkable.

I plan to keep getting massages from her as long as she keeps giving them!” J.B.

"Such an incredible place, the whole atmosphere radiates tranquility and relaxation, the beautiful plants, the personal and cozy feel. Its stress relieving just to walk in the door. Melanie's amazing skills and the tranquil private feel create a hidden oasis in JP." V.L.

“Melanie worked with my schedule and fit me in on a day she doesnt normally work. In addition to that, she respected everything I had to say about my body and adapted her plan to meet those feelings. She has a slow technique, which is different than I have experienced in the past, but it came as a lovely treat-- I felt like jello afterwards. She is the only massage therapist I will see for a while and I have already recommended her to several friends. It takes talent to be a healer (vs. massage being a 'job") and I believe Melanie has this gift.” K.B.

“Melanie is skillful and attentive, paying close attention to verbal and nonverbal feedback. Additionally, she goes above and beyond in her care, ensuring that I have the tools, resources, and knowledge to continue working toward health and wellness on my own in between sessions.” C.P.

"Melanie's studio is very welcoming and warm, but at the same time very professional." T.P.

“Melanie comes to our corporate office every month, and spots fill up incredibly fast because the massages are amazing. She is very thorough and accommodating, and always asks if there's a particular area that I feel a lot of tension in. She's also very knowledgeable about a variety of massage techniques, potential causes of tension, and how to alleviate them. After the massage, she gives helpful tips on how to I can continue working on that area. I'd highly recommend going to see Melanie! She's amazing and now that I just moved closer to Boston, I'm setting up additional appointments outside work and for friends as well.” S.K.

“Melanie is absolutely incredible. I am a crafts person by trade and get tons of tension in my shoulders, arms, and back (not to mentions I tend to clench my jaw while working) and Melanie's massages are down right magical. I get so relaxed I usually pass out drooling, which she is extremely professional about and has a nice box of tissues on hand.” V.D.

“I cannot believe the relief in my jaw and shoulders, I clench my teeth when I sleep and it creates a lot of tension all down my neck. Melanie is not only skilled but also has remarkable intuition, she seems to get a real sense of what your body needs and will taylor what she is doing to fit. I have received many massages in my life, but never ones that are so personally crafted to help my body.” V.L.

“Melanie gives superb massages. She is friendly and professional and I highly recommend her if you are looking for a relaxing break from the stress of everyday life.” D.L.

“I went to Melanie Peterson for a 75 minute massage to work out stress and she was amazing! I had a lot of stress built up in my neck and jaw; and, by the end of the massage I felt very relaxed and rejuvenated. She also worked out tightness in my hips from extensive driving. After the massage Melanie showed me some stretches to do on my own. I have already scheduled another appointment!” T.P.

“I see Melanie for massages to target chronic headaches. She has helped me greatly lower the amount of headache meds I need to take. She is professional, courteous and always gives me stretches to do after each session. I would highly recommend her to anyone!” E.T.

“Melanie's touch is knowledgeable and intuitive. I needed gentle support post-injury and got what I asked for and more. It was a really good first experience.” M.H.

“Melanie was soothing from the moment she welcomed me. The space is clean, professional, and calming. I walked in with stress and ache. The therapy massage felt like a reset button. Today I feel like a new, calmer, and more centered person. I already made a follow up appointment for next week. “ K.G.
