Melissa Dingman is the Owner and Founder of Strength and Power Massage. She attended Gordon College, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in French Language and Cultural Studies, 2009. After College, she received her Massage Therapy Certification from Seacoast Career School in Manchester, NH. Always eager to be current in massage techniques, Melissa has studied with Jeff Mahadeen and the Muscular Wellness Institute to receive her Certification in Active Myofacial Mobilizations, and looks forwards to taking new classes as they arrive. Melissa has also received a Certification in Massage for Oncology Patients, and has been blessed to work with several women in their healing post masectomy.
The body’s capabilities have always interested Melissa, including her own. Six weeks post childbirth in 2013, Melissa joined the community at White Mountain Crossfit and has been astounded by pushing past mental roadblocks to allow the body to truly function. In turn, she also has witnessed the way muscles can hinder an athletes performance. Needless to say, many Crossfit athletes pay her a visit. She works with runners, speed walkers, olympic lifters, yogis, Zumba dancers, and even those not active who wish to be. Her passion is to see you move the way you were created to!
Being part of a military family, community is very important to Melissa. You’ll find her volunteering her time and donations to events such as:
Melissa saved my neck. From working in front of a computer 5 days a week for years my neck pain was intolerable most days. Mobility was starting to suffer too, and I simply wasn't ready to throw in the towel! I started to see Melissa and after the first visit I could tell there was hope for my neck, and a pain-free work day. It's taken some time to unravel all the tension built up over the years, but the techniques Melissa uses are working to solve the underlying issues and I'm regaining freedom of movement and strength. Thank you Melissa!
Melissa Dingman is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable massage therapist. Thanks to Melissa’s expertise, my back pain, which I had for years, is gone.
