About Melissa Coleman
Hi! I am Melissa Coleman, LMT., the owner and operator of Grounded Wellness in Locust Grove Va. I graduated from the Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville in 2001 with a Certificate in Medical Massage. Born and raised in the area, it is a blessing to be a part of the community helping others in their wellness journey. I enjoy attending new training sessions allowing me to add new techniques to help my clients.
When I am not massaging I am spending time with family and friends, I enjoy reading, hiking, gardening or most things outside.
There's often a misconception that massage therapy is just a luxury service- an indulgence--reserved only for vacations or special occasions. Massage therapy is also a powerful form of preventive care that can help you, and your body, more readily manage the mental physical and emotional stresses of everyday life.
As one of the oldest healing traditions, massage therapy remains one of the most viable, natural methods of pain relief and stress reduction available. Incorporating massage therapy as a regular part of your lifestyle is not indulgent-it's just good medicine.
Whether you're experiencing discomfort due to postural stress (such as neck or back pain from prolonged sitting), are struggling with an illness or acute injury, or are in need of some quiet time and solace, with over 20 years of experience, I tailor each session based on your needs, and areas of concern, and apply the most appropriate and effective techniques to meet your goals.
