I’m Marlene (say “Mar-lay-nuh”) and for over 12 years I’ve been providing relief to people just like you.

I give a great relaxation massage, soothing away the day’s stress and minor aches.

Many clients also come to see me for medical massage therapy to relieve their chronic tension, pain, movement issues or other medical need. Learn more >>

Trained in vocal massage, I help singers, speakers, teachers and others bring out their best voice. This includes treating TMJ Disorder, breathing and swallowing challenges, tension in the tongue and throat, etc. Learn more >>

Regain the vitality, relaxation and performance you desire, with my comfortable and pain-free massage and bodywork treatments. I look forward to working with you!

What My 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

New to massage?

How can massage help me? What should I expect on my first visit? Do I have to get undressed? What areas of the body will be massaged? Find answers here:


Get a head start on relief! From the moment you step into my 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. I 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. My advanced therapeutic training in science-based medical massage helps alleviate chronic tightness and discomfort, improve movement and support recovery.


It’s even better when feeling good lasts longer, so I’ll offer you a personalized treatment plan. Need more help? I can guide you in choosing free or low-cost self-care tools, practices and resources to enhance your wellness and comfort.

Why You’ll Like Your Massage

Before Your Session

I really listen. After reviewing your health history and considering your needs and preferences, I customize your session to help you enjoy the best outcome.

During Your Session

Whether you choose a 60, 90 or 120 minute appointment, I spend the entire session time focused on your care and wellbeing. Ample time is scheduled between clients so you’re not rushed.* Just want to relax? I’ll make it happen. Need to relieve pain or movement issues? I’ll select comfortable techniques that best address your problem areas.

After Your Session

If desired, I will follow up with treatment suggestions. Want help in making pain relief last? I can provide self-care guidance and materials, explain my techniques, inform you about the science of pain and the body, and more … as little or as much as you want to know!

*Please allow up to 30 minutes extra for health intake and follow-up, plus time to and from your car.
