Meet Melissa

Hello and Welcome! IMG_1258

It is my delight and honor to serve you on your journey. Whether this is your first time receiving acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicinals,
dietary or movement advice, cupping, or massage, I hope to provide for you a sanctuary of peace and rejuvenation, a place for your mind, body, and spirit to unwind and balance. I extend to you my deepest gratitude for making your health, happiness, and wellbeing a priority.

A little bit about my background: I earned my massage license in 2008, a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with a focus in Health, Exercise Science, and Lifestyle Management in 2010 from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, and a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Institute for Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Honolulu, HI in 2016. Out of all of the classes I have taken over the years, the one that has had the most impact on my life was a tai chi elective. Professionally, I have been employed by a small therapeutic massage business specializing in rehabilitative therapy, by luxury spas, and by myself. I teach Kinesiology and Pathology at the Friday Harbor School of Massage, and I believe that every moment in life is a teaching moment if we choose to see it in that way

Please feel free to share with me any questions or thoughts- I will do my best to address them as thoroughly as possible.
