Massage Therapy

Melissa August, BS, CMT, CIMI

Melissa has been a certified massage therapist since 2004, is licensed in the city of Davis, and insured through ABMP. She is a member of the American Pregnancy Massage Association and the Capital City Doulas network as an affiliate. In 2012, she became a Certified Infant Massage Instructor CIMI® through the International Loving Touch of Foundation, a national accredited program.

She offers a healing experience to melt away stress and pain through massage. She specializes in family massage, especially during and after the childbearing year, and teaches Loving Touch Infant Massage to new parents and caregivers. She communicates with each individual upfront about what should be focused on. She strives to be centered and intuitive enough and feel the muscle or scar tissue that needs work. She strives to sense the perfect amount of pressure allowing each muscle fiber to melt back into a normal perfect physical state, and bring blood flow back into the area. She also strongly encourages any feedback during a session.
