Dear Clients,

Wow. Times are changing quickly in our World right now. I truly hope you are all staying safe and healthy. I have been personally going through a wide range of emotions, eating too many cookies at times, and finding time to reflect and decide how to move forward. I have some big announcements to make regarding Melanie Metz Massage Therapy.

I love the work I do as a Massage Therapist and truly value each and every one of you. It has been an honor to work together in treatments, finding what helps make your body feel better. I will not be shutting my doors forever, but some big changes are being made and I will be shut down for a significant period of time. Currently, the MN governor still has Massage Therapy practices shut down per executive order, and this will likely be extended soon.  This influences my decisions in part, but there are many other factors at play. Please read the rest of this message to understand how I have come to my decisions, and what those d...

Cupping is a healing modality that has been used for thousands of years in many cultures around the world.  Many know it through Traditional Chinese Medicine.  In recent years it became more popular in the modern Western world when professional athletes, such as Michael Phelps, Olympic swimmer and gold medalist, were seen during competitions with strange, perfectly round, bruise-like marks on various parts of their body, such as their shoulder.  People started wondering what this was and realized if professional athletes are doing it, it must be a good thing!  

I use both fire-cupping and plastic pump-style cups in my practice.  When I feel a client could really benefit from cupping (which most of us can), I explain what it is and suggest trying it out as part of there massage/ bodywork session. Most are very open to it, and most love it!  Honestly, almost all my clients that have received cupping report back how great they felt after the session, and how long they found relief from the...

Do you deal with chronic pain?  Do you wake up with a sore back, stiff neck or experience daily headaches?  Did you know that massage can help that pain go away, long term?  I'm often amazed that so many people deal with daily pain and are not aware that therapeutic massage might be the answer.  Certainly it won't always be what works.  Of course it depends on each individual situation and what the source of the pain is.  But, it's worth a try!  It can be much more effective and healthier than taking a daily pain pill or getting a cortisone shot.  Did you know cortisone shots can actually damage your tissue?  

Our bodies take a beating over the years, from so many things...such as minor falls, motor vehicle accidents, repetitive actions (like being on the computer all day), overuse injuries, sports injuries, inactivity, and even just sleeping on your side without the right pillow.  Life is tough!!  These various events can result in chro...
