About Melanie

Melanie is the owner/ founder of Skyhaven Massage & Healing Arts. Deep within her soul, she has always been fascinated by the human body, spirituality and the ancient healing practices.  After earning a B.S. degree in Biomedical Science many years ago, her personal healing path eventually led her into the world of Holistic Health. 


Through her own healing journey, Melanie discovered the transformational power of massage, bodywork and proper nutrition, as well as spiritual and energy healing modalities.  Before taking on massage school, she followed an inner calling to study Traditional Indigenous Healing with Kimberly Hart & Selma Sroka, and Shamanic healing methods with Jorge Villanueva Castillo.  She also had the honor to learn from several other spiritual teachers, including Echo Bodine.

Melanie studied Western Therapeutic Massage and Eastern Shiatsu Therapy at CenterPoint Massage & Shiatsu Therapy School in Minneapolis and launched her own practice in 2017. She continued studies in Maya Abdominal Therapy, Myofascial Techniques, Cupping, CranioSacral and Visceral Manipulation. Melanie also worked for Halo Healing Therapies, where she gained valuable experience providing athletic performance massage for professional athletes, including active NFL professionals.  

Previous to becoming a massage therapist, Melanie enjoyed working as a chemist, storm chaser, adult foster care provider and photographer.  

“I am so grateful to be building a team of caring, holistic practitioners at Skyhaven Massage & Healing Arts, where together we create space for balance, healing and growth.”  - Melanie
