About the therapists...
Melissa McCabe, LMT/Owner
In Austin, Texas since 2007 after graduating from Shepherd University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in therapeutic recreation. Having grown up near the hectic Washington D.C. area, I appreciate a place where tension is viewed as a hindrance rather than the norm.
It is my mission to provide therapeutic massage to all who enter our doors, we communicate our approach and treatments, and offer the highest skilled therapists.
Form + Function Massage is not your average massage studio or business, we take our time, and tailor your experience to your needs., as it should be.
