Massage Therapy

As a chiropractor, I've had the opportunity to work with and to have been worked on by a number of massage therapists. I rank Jen Merritt among the very best. She is deceptively strong and intuitive. She is reliable, friendly and can put anyone at ease. She has helped me when I've been in pain and other times, when I just needed to unwind and relax. I have no reservations recommending her, as I know anyone would be pleased with her skills and personable demeanor.

Couples Massage Class

Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful class tonight. I think that was the most relaxed I have seen my husband, Bill, in a long time. We are looking forward to practicing at home. We both gained a lot of confidence in massaging each other and I know Bill is much more open to massage now, in both receiving and giving.

Thanks Again, Janelle


I value Jen for her extraordinary ability to teach body awareness through her gentle yoga classes. As an older athlete (61), I can apply the knowledge across all of my other activities--from strength training to swimming, running and cycling!

Thanks Jen!

Review from Yelp - Donna G.


I am a regular client of Merritt massage.  Jen is fabulous at a variety of different massage therapies.  No matter what the issue I'm having, i.e. a cold or if I have work stress, she has a massage therapy to help!  I feel comfortable with her, and I leave feeling refreshed and stress free.  I highly recommend her as a massage therapist as well as a positive inspiration
