About The Practice

Nurture Massage Therapy & Wellness was founded in 2009 by Massage Therapist Melissa Chretien. The office is located on the second floor of Melissa's private residence in the quaint historic town of Bath, Maine. The office has its own entrance in the back of the main home. Please park in the driveway and proceed through the gate to the stairs located on the side. Once upstairs please come into the office waiting and reception area and make yourself comfortable. I repectfully ask that you remove your shoes and silence your phone upon entering the office. There is a variety of slippers in the basket below the coat hooks for your comfort. Please feel free to help yourself to the complimentary beverages - generally offering an assorted selection of tea, coffee, water, and juices. Books and magazines are availabe for your perusal and enjoyment.

Melissa founded Nurture Massage Therapy & Wellness with the goal of creating a relaxing, healing environment. It is her hope that clients will feel safe and nurtured in her care while also feeling empowered to take control of their own health and wellbeing. The word nurture means the care and attention given to someone or something that is growing or developing. Melissa chose the name Nurture as a reflection of this desire to cultivate growth through loving kindness, collaboration, and support.
