Melissa Chambers, LMT, is a native of Grand Junction, CO and currently resides in Fruita, CO, with her husband Chris.
In January 2012, Melissa was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Once diagnosed, one of her goals was to be able to run her first 5k. She turned to massage to help with daily muscle spasms and chronic pain. After receiving many massages, Melissa realized how beneficial massage is for healing, both for recovering from an injury and maintaining health. Melissa felt empowered and once she followed a structured health plan, she was able to achieve her goals, regardless of having a chronic illness.
She was eventually led to the Intellitec College Massage Program where she graduated as a Licensed Massage Therapist. During her time in school, she studied many different massage modalities and realized that a mixture of those modalities had personal meaning for her. It was through her studies and many hours of hands-on practice that she learned to listen carefully to each client’s needs, allowing her to maximize time spent on the table. Melissa realized her passion as a Licensed Massage Therapist would be to use that knowledge and her gentle, caring touch to help those suffering with pain.
Melissa has developed a unique style of massage centered on the idea of providing a therapeutic, relaxing and rejuvenating experience for her clients. She has found that by incorporating hot and cold stone therapy and thermotherapy massage techniques into her deep tissue/therapeutic massage, her patients reap incredible benefits.

When not massaging, her hobbies include spending time with family and friends, kayaking and traveling.
