Certified massage therapist Melisa Gibbs targets clients' problem spots during deep-tissue massages, incorporating deeper pressure to help banish chronic aches.
New Beginnings Massage Therapy
Melisa Gibbs became a massage therapist in 2010 to help people achieve wellness through natural methods, rather than by endlessly popping painkillers. "I'd like to help relieve [pain], rather than covering it up with medicine," she says.
When her clients arrive at New Beginnings Massage Therapy, she ushers them into a private space for soothing relaxation massages, also known as Swedish massages, which help them de-stress after putting up with a cranky boss at work or a malfunctioning cuckoo clock at home. Melisa says clients who've been having issues often experience a greater range of motion after her deep-tissue massages, which are aimed at banishing chronic aches. She's also able to aid those with medical issues including carpal tunnel syndrome and headaches.
