Melissa Dittmer graduated Hollins University in 1997 with a BA in Biology. After working in several scientific research disciplines, she decided to pursue massage therapy at Medical Arts Massage School in Raleigh. She completed their program in 2003, and her Reiki Mastership in 2005. She now concentrates in using a mix of medical and therapeutic massage techniques to achieve the best possible results with her clients.
As Melissa developed her abilities as an energy worker, she recognized she had a gift to read and interpret chakra energy as well as energy trapped or deposited in the body. As her gift developed, she saw that bringing conscious awareness to her clients regarding energy issues dramatically improved their overall wellness.
When she’s not with clients, she spends her time hiking or walking in the local parks, learning more about essential oils and energy, and figuring out and having fun with her incredibly smart, but very ADHD, 9 year old son.

What is orthopedic massage?
Orthopedic massage is really a form a bodywork. Since 80% of pain and muscular dysfunction are located in the muscle attachments at the joints, we focus our attention there. Resolving this issue leads to reduced pain and improved quality of life.
Can orthopedic massage help my back pain?
Yes! The spine is actually a long series of joints, with lots of muscles which allow it to move and flex, extend, rotate, etc. By addressing those joints, we can address many forms of back pain.

At your first session, we will discuss your challenges and goals and develop a plan to return you to wellness.
Is orthopedic massage the same as Swedish?
No, Swedish - or classic - massage works to release muscle tension and promote relaxation. Orthopedic - deep tissue - massage addresses the underlying causes for the tension in the inner layers of muscles and tendons.
