Meet Your Massage Therapist



Hello my name is DawnMelody and I have been a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist for 14 years.  I have worked in a variety of settings and specialize in Orthopedic Injury Recovery and Prevention through Medical Massage, which is an integrated approach utilizing many types of soft tissue mobilization. This style of Massage can help everyone from athletes to the retired person, to someone recovering from an injury or surgery.  I feel helping people understand what is going on with their musculoskeletal system is the most important part of recovery and prevention because with this knowledge a person can choose to be involved in their own healing.  I look forward to working with you to help cultivate a Better You!

Examples of Pathologies that can be treated with Medical Massage are:
Plantar Fasciitis
Shoulder pain
Chronic Headaches
Low Back pain
Knee pain
Hip pain
Tennis elbow
Golfer’s elbow
Hand Tingling or Numbness



Hi there!  My name is Michael and I have been doing massage therapy since 2008.  I founded Better You Now Massage in late 2014 on the principle of offering clients better service, better value and a better massage experience.  I truly enjoy what I do, helping people look, feel and be better, and I would love to work with you.  I personally believe massage should always be relaxing, even if there are specific things that need to be worked on and your comfort and satisfaction are very important to me.  I look forward to working with you to enhance your health and well-being.  See you soon!



Hello, my name is Nancy and I have 11 years of experience in the healing art of Massage Therapy.  I recently moved out here from California to be closer to my family and I am loving Austin!  Whether you need to get those knots worked out or relax, you won't be disappointed with my work.  See you soon!



Hi, my name is Trish. I have been a massage therapist for over 25 years. I graduated from Inland Massage Instiute in Spokane, WA and I am also a licensed Massage Therapy Instructor. I have since taken a multitude of classes, including Lymphatic Drainage, prenatal/postnatal massage, aromatherapy, and hot stone massage and I have worked in a variety of establishments utilizing the modalities I’ve learned. I enjoy working with healing energy as well, and have been trained in CranioSacral work, Reiki and Divine Intervention. I completed the Reiki training and obtained Master level in 1994. It is my greatest pleasure to have you come in, work with you and have you leave feeling like A Better You Now.



Hello!  I am a Massage Therapist concerned with helping people relax, feel better, and move easier to go about their daily activities. I am a graduate of Lauterstein-Conway Massage Therapy school here in Austin.

Hello, my name is Gaby Schlumpberger. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist who graduated from the Lauterstein Conway Massage School in Austin, TX.  I am also a Healing Touch Practitioner which is an energy modality where I use my hands in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.  I have always felt guided to help others heal. I offer “intuitive and deeply effective massage”.  This means I incorporate everything that I have learned and continue to learn with the intention to provide what the body needs at that given moment.
