Melissa Stablein, LMT, CPT
I became a licensed massage therapist in 2009 from Cortiva,
Tucson with the intention of helping people to heal from physical and emotional
trauma. I have extensive experience in crisis intervention and working with
people who have experienced sexual violence. In order to integrate personal
healing and balance with physical recovery and flexibility, I also became a
certified personal trainer.
In addition to active practice, I spent two years teaching
ethics and communication at Cortiva.
I always knew the power behind massage but I also personally
experienced what massage can do to help restore and maintain one’s health. In
2012 I had a back injury that kept me from walking for almost two weeks.
Traditional medicine did nothing to solve my problems but kept me medicated. I
had never experienced this kind of pain or depression from not being able to
use my body and be as active as usually am. I reached out to my massage
therapist and she work diligently to help me restore full function to my body.
It worked! I began to walk again and return to the activities I love. It completely reaffirmed my belief in what is
possible through massage.
I believe strongly in client education, teaching each person
about what is happening with their bodies. Each client is given tips to help
continue to reach their goals in between sessions. I continuously pursue
educational opportunities that will benefit my clients. I try to create a safe and supportive
environment in which clients can create a life free of pain. Each session is
created with the client's goals in mind.
