Meet Melissa Owner, LMT
& Body Mind Coach
The owner - Melissa was born in Bayamon Puerto Rico, and raised in Gwinnett County Georgia. Growing up Melissa was very active in sports and competitive dance. Throughout years of competition and training she saw many injuries accompany her fellow team mates and learned to value a proper recovery regimen to accompany her active lifestyle. Eager to gain more knowledge in proper body maintenance she enrolled in the massage therapy program at Everest Institute of Norcross in 2008. In 2009 she completed her training and certification as a Licensed Massage Therapist. Over the next several years she cultivated and owned her craft and in 2013 when she took a position as a lead therapist with the Massage Heights franchise at their Buckhead location in Atlanta, Georgia. From 2013-2015 she shared her passion and knowledge of massage therapy managing, coaching, and training teams of up to 25 therapists and awarded Team Member Ambassador at the 2015 Massage Heights annual retreat. Shortly after she decided to spread her wings and open her own practice Massage Smart following her passion in changing lives through massage and bodywork. Keeping focus on the individual, providing high quality therapeutic services, and creating unique experience where relaxation works in unison with therapeutic body work and education. Massage Smart provides the best of both worlds in all services in a relaxed and calming spa like environment. Melissa continues to build her team of therapists as well as developing additional wellness programs and services to further provide her individual clients, corporations, and fellow wellness providers tools and support in achieving their health and wellness goals through massage therapy and bodywork. She currently pursues an associates degree in IT & Networking at DeVry University to develop skills in successfully bringing her passion for health and wellness to a digital platform to reach and change more lives across the country.
