Melanie grew up in rural Alaska and moved to Anchorage in 2011. She studied massage at Alaska Career College and has been practicing since her graduation in 2012. Her style of massage is a combination of Swedish and Deep Tissue. She uses techniques such as pin and stretch, static compression, and trigger point release. Her primary interest is orthopedics and is always eager to learn new ways of helping people heal. To expand her education, she moved to San Diego where she earned a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Degree. She has recently returned to Anchorage and is looking forward to working in the community once again.

When Melanie is not in the clinic, she enjoys being active in the outdoors, hiking, biking, and kayaking. She also enjoys traveling and does so every chance she gets!
