Our Philosophy

At Hands Down Massage, we attend to each client as a whole unique, individual person much greater than the disease, dysfunction or stress the suffer from.
Our therapists practice with intuition and full presence, using sound clinical thinking as they plan a session with the best of intention and compassion.
Real connections are formed as our therapists provide caring, connective touch, nutrition and exercise guidance based on the premise that real wellness encompasses the body, mind and spirit.

Meet the Team

Malissa Tracy, LMT

Founder, CEO & Practitioner

I am a single mom of 5 amazing grown children who are my world. I have 3 precious grandchildren with 2 on the way. I look for God's direction in my life every day and strive to fulfill my purpose while being the truest authentic me that I can be.

I have worked in the medical field for most of my adult life as a home health aid, a nursing assistant in both a long term care and hospital setting, I served my local community as an EMT/firefighter until I found my current career as a massage therapist. Recently I certified as a Yoga instructor and I am currently working on my personal trainer certification and specializing in nutrition.

I am truly blessed to have such an amazing career, and wonderful friends & family to surround me each day. I enjoy seeking out the silver lining of every cloud, seeing my cup as half full and sometimes runneth over. I am in love with taking care of my body...mind...and spirit and hope you will let me show you how to do the same!
