Our Testimonials

We’re ranked the #1 Private Practice in New Canaan for a reason. Our clients love us!


Melinda is a truly gifted massage therapist. She has changed my life in so many ways by specifically helping me to tackle long-term pain patterns. After steadily seeing her for over time, chronic areas of pain and migraines that have bothered me over 10 years resolved. That had never happened for me with the endless approaches and therapist I had previously seen.

Melinda is kind, wise, open, and takes the time to really give to each session. She is very knowledgeable about other modalities, nutrition, and exercises that can augment the wonderful work she does. Without question I have and would recommend Melinda.

“Melinda offers her own unique, wonderfully thoughtful, compassionate, and highly skilled blend of massage and energy work.

She custom tailors her work based on each client by using a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, cranio-sacral, myo-fascial release, and finishes the session with energy work.

Melinda’s intuitive touch is among the best I have experienced and I highly recommend her!”

Melinda gives an absolutely wonderful massage, whether you want a deep tissue or a more relaxing swedish massage.

My husband and I have had so many massages over our lifetime and can both truly say that she is the best. She is very in tune to your individual body and can help figure out where your pain or discomfort is coming from, even when you are not sure yourself. Everyone needs a Melinda massage (or two...)!

More Praise


“Three months ago I stated a vigorous physical therapy program to correct painful lower back problems. In the beginning I was limited to very mild stretching and started a massage program with Melinda. I was in significant pain and could only get worked on lying on my side.

I could not lie flat on my back or stomach making it very difficult to work on me. Melinda was amazing working around these limitations. She was able to identify nerve damaged tissue and heavily worked my damaged muscles. Today I am pain free and have significant mobility to my spine which I did not have before my injury occurred.

I credit Melinda for being an integral part of my healing. Melinda is extremely proficient in deep tissue massage, yoga and overall physical wellness. I have been to numerous massage therapists and no one comes close to her abilities. “

~Restaurant Owner, Pound Ridge

“Melinda is, hands down, the best massage therapist I’ve ever been to. I was amazed within the first 60 seconds of walking through the door. Melinda did a quick body check during which she placed her hands on different areas of my body and then told me exactly where my areas of tension and imbalance were, without me telling her anything.

Her bodywork is even more impressive. Melinda applies the right amount of pressure to heal, but not hurt. I saw results in the very first session! She both relieved my pain and helped improve my posture. I’ve been going back ever since.

I highly recommend Melinda for any bodywork you may need. She is also well-versed in holistic health and wellness – an added bonus! “

~Health Coach, Stamford

“I first went to Melinda two years ago. I was suffering from chronic low back pain which caused poor posture and severe tightness in my legs (IT band, glutes, hamstrings and quadriceps) resulting from the way I exercise.

While I had previous experience with massage, I never had the kind of experience that would cause me to commit to it regularly. With Melinda, however, not only did I feel immediate relief but, based on her expertise, I began to understand and re-examine the way in which I exercise.

Her technique with me has been to use stretching to increase flexibility as well as massage. The result is significant. It has enabled me to truly relax as I have a much greater understanding of the relationship between mind and body. My posture has radically improved. I have lost 23 pounds and, most importantly, I am not in pain.”
