Melanie graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2004. She is nationally certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Body Work (NCBTMB), and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
Massage is an important tool for working out those tight knots and kinks, as well as making sure that first nasty twinge doesn't become chronic.
Many styles of music have been an integral part of Melanie’s day to day life, from Alternative, 80’s Hair Bands, Pop Rock, to Jazz, Classical and New Age. Music compliments massage in many ways. Sometimes you may be in the mood for a relaxing massage which associates with New Age.
Or a deep massage, which could pair with Hard Rock or Grunge. Perhaps a pre-event massage, which may coincide with Pop or Club music. There is a music/massage combo for every mood. You decide what it should be and Melanie will make it happen.

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
