Melissa Doyle, licensed massage therapist

I graduated from Florida School of Massage where the curriculum and training focused on using massage and hydrotherapy to foster awareness and personal growth. Modalities taught include Swedish Massage, Reflexology, Neuromuscular Therapy, connective tissue therapy, Polarity Therapy and Sports Massage Therapy. In addition to the massage modalities, courses focused on Anatomy and Physiology, Kinesiology, Communications, Business and Law.

My goal is to cultivate awareness in my community through massage therapy and yoga. I feel that life is short, regular massage therapy and a solid yoga practice can help people enjoy life on life's terms. If you want to work hard, you're going to have to "work hard" at relaxing too, at least that is my opinion!

[In addition to my my massage and yoga training, I hold a BS in Biology from the University of Massachusetts and a MS in Entomology from the University of Florida.]


Tree Top Massage is a cooperative of like-minded practitioners striving to offer a place of relaxation and healing to the people of Gainesville. Our offices are in a converted home on the second floor, nestled in the trees. It's a cozy and lovely escape.
