Melissa Bird

Licensed Massage Therapist

I believe massage is a unique blend of science & art- the science of anatomy, knowledge of tissue & patterns we use our bodies in, while also an art of facilitating movement & change within live tissue- using the human connection to tap into & boost the body's own innate healing abilities. Each massage is a blend of technique, intuition & compassion to find the perfect mixture to 'make life better'- be it saving the world, improving overall health, or just getting through the day with less pain. Many of these principles can be applied to skincare as well- helping to educate clients & give them a positive body image through caring for our largest organ.

Many of us are not here by accident- we are driven to this profession for a variety of reasons, but like most, I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else.. I feel grateful & blessed to be in the wellness industry since 2002, helping others help themselves in the name of personal awesomeness & well-being. I mostly enjoy the one-on-one connections, seeing the transformation of a stressed face into bliss, & playing with new modalities such as energy work, hot stones, cupping, scrubs & hair removal. Come to a 1-hour retreat of personal betterment & we'll take that journey together..

I am a native of AZ & love all seasons of outdoors in the Northwest! My pets & garden are my children, I also enjoy hot yoga, cooking, travel & adventures of all kinds.



Dustin Williams
Licensed Massage Therapist

Dustin graduated from Cortiva Institute of Massage - Seattle's extended program in July 2010. After a couple years of practice in fundamental bodywork techniques at a wellness spa, he chose to specialize in traditional Thai massage.

During your session Dustin takes into consideration the theories of Traditional Thai Medicine, and crafts a massage keeping in mind the conditions and symptoms, as well as how long you've been in pain or out of balance. Each massage is different and is treated as a new opportunity to create movement and reduce tension, and to utilize traditional medicine tools to help you meet your bodywork goals.

Thai massage is unique as it focuses on the entire body - from the three energy centers, the 72,000 sen (lines), and the seven layers of the body made from five elements. Keeping with the traditions of Thai Medicine, Dustin uses his sessions to expertly address each layer of the body individually from skin down to bone and sen, helping to prevent dysfunction and bring awareness to daily acts that can lead to dis-ease in the body.

An expert Traditional Thai session with Dustin can be performed fully clothed, or draped on a table, and often includes compression, jostling, acupressure, vibration, stretching, range of motion and traction. He is well schooled in the use of traditional medicine tools and herbs that help to enhance your massage, such as balm and liniments, cupping, gua sha (scraping/khoot), and tok sen.

By using this ancient science of anatomy, assessment and treatment, sessions can be wonderfully life changing, it's no wonder Thai massage is exploding in popularity!
