Spotlight on Business: Absolute Therapy

Chad Cheyney, Butte County Chamber of Commerce

Absolute Therapy has moved to a new facility in Arco! They will be celebrating with an open house on Saturday, October 1st from 1:00- 4:00 PM.  Absolute Therapy provides certified, and Oregon board licensed massage and manual therapy, providing another option for the community in the area of health and wellness.

Melinda performs many different types of massage techniques including relaxation massage but her two years working for a chiropractor in Portland, Oregon has lead her primarily to have a strong interest and talent in injury recovery and pain management. Her techniques work well in conjunction with chiropractic and modern rehabilitative services like physical therapy, speeding up the body’s natural healing processes. Many of her clients who were unable to be helped by surgery have discovered that their problem was a “tissue issue”.

The new facility is located behind the Bargain Barn in the rear portion of the Arco Christian Church on West Era Street. The entrance is on the east side of the building. Office hours will be Monday thru Friday by appointment. The new facility also has an adjacent conference room which will be used by various members of the community to provide free or minimally cost educational opportunities.

Melinda Shodin, owner and operator of Absolute Therapy, has a diploma in massage therapy from East West College in Portland, Oregon and special training in a wide range of massage practices. Melinda also offers massage therapy in Mackay and Challis. Appointments can be made by calling 208-541-7771.
