Balsamroot Massage & Bodywork
“It's all about finding the calm in the chaos”
~ Donna Karan
Hi, my name is Melinda Dorst, Licensed Massage Therapist, and I want to introduce myself as well as welcome you to my studio to learn about and enjoy the many benefits of massage/manual therapy.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of muscles and soft tissues to relieve pain, promote injury healing, improve circulation, and relieve stress. I am enthusiastic about a more holistic approach to healthcare and am a firm believer in the healing ability of massage therapy. I believe massage and the healing power of touch is an essential component of personal health and well-being and consider it to be an integral part of the body-mind-spirit connection that we all possess. Drawing from a foundation of relaxation massage, I often blend this style with treatment specific techniques such as deep tissue, myofascial release, cupping or stretching when needed. In addition to traditional massage, I also offer hot stone massage as well as reflexology.
I'm a local graduate of the Columbia River Institute of Massage Therapy and I'm eager to share my skills and knowledge while supporting your body's innate abilities for healing.
I will listen to what your needs are and strive to deliver a skilled, individually tailored massage session. I look forward to supporting you in your path to better health and wellness!
