Merissa Mason Owner and RMT

RMT, Owner

Merissa Mason

Properly helping others has been ingrained in the fabric of Merissa's existence as long as she can remember, so naturally she prides herself on going above and beyond for her clients. Merissa's  passion for the profession comes through in her interactions with clients and in her treatments. She loves to connect with clients, creating a truly personalized session to reach each individual's goals. Whether she is helping to reintegrate mind with body, soothing chronic pain, or rehabilitating an injury, Merissa uses her considerable assessment and hands-on skills to provide the best care possible.


In her time away from the clinic Merissa is constantly striving towards slowing down the pace of everyday life. She enjoys time with her family, laughing continuously with her daughter, anything outdoors, meditation and hanging out with her horses.
