What People Are Saying

 

" I've been taking dr.Melissa's classes for almost four months and my sciatica pain that I had for almost 16 years is gone! Dr.Melissa is very knowledgeable and caring. Her classes are fun! I work from home and love the opportunity to take a break and work on my entire body in a 30 minutes or 1 hour session. I love Melissa's classes!" - Ayguyl

 

"Dr. Melissa is an incredible teacher who will help you no matter where you’re starting from. Dr. Melissa also includes tips to how different movements relate to everyday activities. This is beyond helpful in daily life and has led to less injuries from hyperextension and careless movement. This attention to detail is not something I’ve ever seen in any other fitness class or physical therapy session. These classes are personalized with results that were visibly noticeable after only the first few classes. Now months in, I’m feeling stronger than ever and have noticeably better posture and balance. I am moving so much better—like tin man after oil better. It’s significant and undeniable. Plus, Dr. Melissa truly cares about our health. She asks if anyone has trouble areas before class starts and makes adjustments accordingly. I find this part so important for a condition where new injuries can sometimes pop up daily. She has also stayed several times after class to show additional exercises to help with painful areas or injuries. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Melissa and the benefits these classes have had on overall health. Every hypermobile person needs these classes in their lives yesterday. "

"Melissa is a physical therapist and Pilates instructor of unrivaled quality. I have known her for about 15 years, first seeing her as a patient, then taking Pilates from her, and recently turning to her for some advice on new issues. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the body and mind, and can present a broad array of solutions for you to experiment with. . This is her calling, and it shows. My mom and I both take her Pilates class now, and I appreciate the versatility, challenge, sense of play, and good humor that Melissa brings. She's a beautiful, wise soul that I feel lucky to know."
