My name is Melissa Ballew. I am the owner of In Perfect Balance Massage. Licensed in Massage Therapy, I focus on Therapeutic Relaxation Massage using Swedish Techniques and Aromatherapy. My specialties include Hot Stone, Oncology, and Prenatal Massage. I am originally from North Carolina and studied massage therapy at Miller-Motte College.
I moved to Oregon in 2011 after graduating massage school. After working in the Catering and Restaurant Industry, I decided to pursue my passion and start my career as a massage therapist in 2017. I thoroughly enjoy working with people and strive to help clients meet their health goals while focusing on overall relaxation. I'm passionate about providing professional massage services tailoring each massage to meet your needs.
I love spending time with my partner, playing with our dogs, hanging with friends, kayaking, and roller skating.

"I saw Melissa weekly for a couple of months when I was living away from home during a very stressful time. Her massages helped me stay sane, grounded and functional. The experience goes beyond just massage, though. She genuinely cares about her clients - while maintaining professional boundaries. Melissa creates a safe space - totally trans friendly - to relax, be, and heal.
I'm really grateful I found her during a difficult time."
"Fantastic Massage Therapist. She listens to your concerns and helps create a plan that works best for your massage needs. Her hot stone massages are Amazing! Great way to treat yourself and relax. I see Melissa every 2 weeks and I feel like a new person each time! Highly recommend her for relaxing, injury relief, or deep tissue. You won’t be disappointed!!"
"I am a mobile autodetailer and I do a lot of work that requires putting work on my back muscles and other muscles. Melissa is a fantastic massage therapist, and does a great job working on the areas that seem to be bothering me and also the rest of my muscles, where i feel excellent every time she is done. I get my massage every two weeks and feels amazing. If you do work that requires you to do a lot of bending twisting or moving to sitting at a desk for long period of time, I highly recommend Melissa she does excellent massages and you will be happy every time!"
