You are so ready for relief!

Tired of nagging aches? Need to slow down? Or maybe you’re dealing with months (or years) of chronic discomfort, lost range of motion, depression, anxiety, or other medical conditions.

When left untreated — or treated unsuccessfully — these issues often become life-limiting.

  • Stress can turn into inflammation and illness.
  • Tension may change movement patterns and affect function.
  • Pain can intensify, spread and reduce mobility.
  • Mental health may suffer, decreasing happiness and social connection.

Massage and bodywork offers:

  • Relaxation and rejuvenation
  • Comfort in stillness and movement
  • Greater flexibility and ease of posture
  • More effective pain management
  • Proven benefits for depression, anxiety, PTSD
  • Faster recovery from injury or overuse
  • Better performance for active people
  • Pep in your step and a smile in your heart!

With your trust, Marlene (say “Mar-lay-nuh”) will partner with you to create more enjoyable health.

Four elements of an exceptional experience


Get a head start on relief! From the moment you step into our waiting room, you’ll relax to gentle sounds, soft light and a cozy fire. Melt into an armchair and further unwind while you wait by wrapping yourself in a heated therapy pillow.


Your story, preferences and needs are key. Taking time to listen, each session is designed to provide you with the best results for your money. We typically avoid heavily scented products and use pure organic oils that absorb beautifully (or sometimes no oil at all).


A deeply relaxing massage will relieve your stress, tension and minor aches, using the right pressure. Advanced therapeutic training in science-based medical massage techniques helps alleviate chronic discomfort, improve movement and support recovery.


It’s even better when feeling good lasts longer, so we’ll follow-up your session with a personalized treatment plan. Need more help? Marlene can guide you in choosing beneficial self-care tools, practices and resources to enhance your wellness and comfort.

What Our Clients are Saying...

"When I leave a session with Marlene—I have the feelings of someone that just got fantastic news. I believe her touch encourages you to connect with yourself and at the same time let go of stress and let her help. I find in my sessions with her—she is attentive/knowledgeable and intuitive to the point where verbal communication is not necessary. She is truly talented.” — Gina Click
"Marlene Mayman has a unique and amazing gift of healing through the art of massage therapy. After just two sessions, she provided me with much-needed pain relief from a pinched ulnar nerve, as a result of whiplash. I had tried months of physical therapy with no success. I was so desperate to escape the numbness in my hand & arm and to my amazement she accomplished what others could not do. I feel so fortunate to have found the gift of Marlene… My husband sees her as well and we cannot sing her praises enough. Thank you, Marlene!” — Becky Stallings Schneider
"My entire upper body feels much improved. The most noticeable effect is the lack of pain in that little area near my shoulder blades. This is such a relief. I have been on the computer for long periods of time, and it has not been a problem. Also, my entire shoulder area feels more flexible and there is significantly less pain on that left side. Thank you so much for all of the hard work you put in to this.” — Alison Roeser
"I have suffered with carpel tunnel for many years. Marlene was able to improve my situation tremendously in a few visits. Marlene is not your average therapist; she is highly trained, committed to excellence and very professional in all she does. I would trust her and recommended her to anyone without reservation.” — Mac Caldwell
