Hi, My name is Melanie and I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist in Fairbanks, Alaska.
I completed my massage therapy in Fairbanks, at the School of Integrating Shiatsu-Alaska in 1992. Recently I was employed for a chiropractor, working in a clinic setting, which really helped to blend relaxation work with preventative and injury sessions.
You will find that I listen to not just the signs and symptoms of your concerns and injuries. The initial sessions will begin with determining a program and session itinerary. I am happy to work with doctors and other practicioners, incorporating their recommendations into they treatments.
My favorite massage modalities are deep tissue and sports. I am trained and highly skilled in Sports massage, Swedish, Deep Tissue and currently working towards a certification in Myofascial Release.
I graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a Bachelor's degree in Geological Engineering. While finishing school, I realized that mentally I was imbalanced and needed to find something to complement the science. Finding that giving massages and helping people release their tension and reduce their pain; improving their life, gives me the balance I need in life.
I have 3 4-legged babies at my house, Willie G, Cheyenne, and Loki, my baby pittie, a german shepard mix, a malamute mix. Three of the biggest 70+ lbs lap dogs you'll ever meet. Here is a picture of them with a couple of friends, Toby and Angel.
I dabble in winter sports, but am a fair weather outdoorswoman. In the summer I prefer to spend my free time feeling the breeze in the saddle of my Harley, when I'm not out exploring with family and friends.
Hi, My name is Monica and I practice Aromatherapy in Fairbanks, Alaska, as well as being the proud owner of Alaskan Earth Mamas Products.
I have been very interested in natural herbs and plants for their healing properties. That started me on the path to studying and creating my own line of products. I am now ready to expand that experience by sharing my knowledge through the use of essential oils with a direct application.
