Body Harmony Massage Therapy
In some ways, Melanie Dowell is still living out the effects of the car accident she was in when she was 11 years old. When pain from the accident persisted, her parents took her to a holistic health center, where she was able to experience the healing benefits of massage firsthand—thus cementing her faith in bodywork. At Body Harmony Massage Therapy, she gives her clients the same experience; her massages alleviate the pain and tension that result from accidents, sports injuries, or pushing nerds into broom closets. She also performs body treatments that use herbs and flowers to treat skin. For instance, the lavender body treatment combines lavender, cornmeal, and essential oils of ginger and eucalyptus to regenerate cells and relax respiratory tightness, and the Hot Toddy for the Body warms skin with a cornmeal scrub before a massage with orange oil reduces tension.
