Hello! My name is Melanie Marie Matheney and I'm very pleased to be part of the Vitality Wellness Center’s team!

I moved here from Houston, TX but am originally from Warsaw, IN. I have a 15 year long history in the food industry: cooking, baking and as a pastry chef and over 11 years in massage therapy. My nature for taking care of people naturally turned from food to body work and I've overlapped both my career loves for many years, working in kitchens and health centers in Houston, Texas; Santa Cruz and overseas in Sweden.

I've lived in Santa Cruz for about 13 years and have been practicing massage therapy for over 11 years. My bodywork repertoire includes Swedish massage, deep tissue, prenatal, reflexology, sports massage, myofascial release and cranial sacral therapy. I have worked at spas and chiropractic centers as well as participated in many corporate and public events such as group camps and retreats. I also do table and chair massage for private groups such as bridal showers, birthdays, corporate gatherings, fairs and festivals.

My work is intuitive and focused with an effort to address the body and lifestyle collectively. I’m bringing together all the parts to make a cohesive and unified unit. I listen to my clients’ needs as well as discuss and address issues we find together along the journey. I enjoy looking at life, health, play and physical needs and practices from a holistic level… we do what we can, when we can, with what we have, and go from there!

I love food and health and appreciate integrating these things throughout my life and my work. I very much enjoy yoga, learning and exploring good food and healthy nutrition practices, getting out in nature for hikes and other forms of exercise as well as trying out any new restaurant that pops up. I also love music, art and dance and my current studies incorporate those into my life. One of the most important things in my life is to learn and grow and I strive to do that continually.
