Rachel Carroll
Owner, Certified Neuromuscular Therapist, Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist, and Licensed Massage Therapist

Rachel is a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist and is the owner and founder of The Neuromuscular Studio. She has been a practicing, licensed massage therapist since 2002 when she graduated from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy in Tempe. She began her massage career at an upscale athletic club where she concentrated on Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation of athletes. In 2003 she began her private practice and founded The Neuromuscular Studio, concentrating her efforts on rehabilitating athletes and treating the injuries of performing artists.

It is her own experience with music, the performing arts, and injuries that originally inspired her career in massage therapy. Rachel holds a Bachelor of Music in Bassoon Performance from Arizona State University where she studied with Dr. Jeffrey Lyman. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in December of 1999. In her Junior year of study as a performance major, she developed severe tendonitis as a result of the repetitive stress and playing demands of her degree. After exhausting traditional options with little relief she chose to look at alternative therapies, including massage, to alleviate her pain and restore her performance. The treatments and their success prompted Rachel to pursue a career in massage therapy.

Over the years her specialties in soft tissue treatment for injuries and medical conditions has expanded to also include prenatal and Caesarean section recovery, post-surgical orthopedic and spine rehabilitation, and motor vehicle accident injuries.

She is currently an Arizona State Licensed Massage Therapist, a Certified Neuromuscular Therapist under Neuromuscular Therapy American Version, and a Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist under Kate Jordan and Bodywork for the Childbearing Year. She has also been a member of the exam item writing panel for the National Certification Board for Massage Therapy and Bodywork, writing questions for the National exam. She is currently an active professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

Melissa Voight
Certified KMI Structural Integrator, Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Nationally Certified Massage Therapist (NCTMB)

Melissa is a nationally Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist who specializes in treating and correcting fascia (connective tissue) She is a Certified KMI Structural Integrator and has advanced training in traditional Myofascial Release Therapy. She is also a Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist under Carol Osborn.

She has been a practicing since 2003 when she graduated from the Central Florida School of Massage Therapy in Winter Park, Florida. She began her massage career in outpatient rehab and sports medicine at the Florida Hospital. There she worked closely with many physical therapists in patient care,  providing therapeutic massage for athletes, pregnant women, and patients rehabilitating from surgery and injury, as well as patients seeking pain management for chronic conditions. Since moving to Arizona in 2005, she has maintained a private practice administering goal-based therapeutic massage and has contracted her services to several resorts and therapeutic offices for specialized client care.

Melissa stumbled upon her love for massage therapy by mere chance. She went to massage therapy school for fun, and while there she learned the many benefits of bodywork, and was inspired to seek employment in a medical facility when she graduated from school. She received her first session in Structural Integration as a student, and after just one treatment was amazed at the changes in her structure. She gained a half-inch in height, and experienced a noticeable increase in her lung capacity from tissue being released around her chest.

Since that time, it has been Melissa’s goal to become a Certified Structural Integration Therapist to help people release themselves from the binds in their own tissue created throughout their lifetime. She completed the Tom Myers’ Kinesis Myofascial Integration (KMI) 500-hour Structural Integration training program for advanced practitioners in 2010. She is a Board Certified Structural Integrator under the International Association of Structural Integrators and is an active professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
