With 13 years of massage experience, Clevenger Massage’s head practitioner snuffs out stress and anxiety using her licensed, insured, and bare hands. To begin 60-minute Swedish massage sessions, clients relax in a private room complete with aromatherapy and music, which create a calmer, sweeter-smelling environment than the rattle of half-empty tuna cans. Backs, necks, upper arms, and legs are then kneaded with long, flowing strokes using light oil or lotion. As muscles relax, the therapist gradually increases pressure at specific points to relieve localized tension and return a sunshiny feeling to the body nonintravenously. Massage effectively addresses a host of physical maladies and has been linked to a number of benefits, including decreased anxiety, improved concentration, and enhanced sleep quality. Clevenger Massage’s clients enjoy free nearby street parking.
Massage therapist Melissa Clevenger knows the worth of a good massage. “I know how much I love getting massages,” she says on her website, and she appreciates how important it is “to offer that same gift to others.” In this spirit of healing and generosity, Melissa started her business with mobile chair massages and sofa shiatsu sessions, taking her gift to people wherever they were. Now, Melissa takes clients into her care at her permanent location, where Swedish and deep-tissue table massages pair with soothing music and aromatherapy. Her combination of intuitive strokes and firm pressure helps detoxify muscles and banish tension when clients need it most, even during after-hours weekday or weekend appointments.
