Sounds great! Let me book an appointment!

Massage allows you to enter a time and space where your body is relaxed and your mind is quiet. This altered state of consciousness promotes healing and renewal.  This healing state is available to all, from athletes to fragile elders.


I need to get on your table, Cynthia. How can I do that?

Ms. Mealy’s firm knowledge of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and medical exercise strengthens her clients experience, allowing them to progress on their paths. Whether those paths are surgical recovery, improving general health, or increasing athletic performance, Altered States offers the support needed for clients to attain their goals.



Allright already! When can I have an appointment?

Some ask "Why "Altered States of Science?"

We are 'ALTERED STATES' because massage can take you into a time and space where the body is relaxed and the mind is quiet. This is a non drug-induced altered state of consciousness. There is increasing evidence that taking the time to enter into this state of relaxed consciousness promotes health and well-being.

We are 'OF SCIENCE' because at Altered States we have studied and apply the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and medical exercise to strengthen our clients' recovery, general health, or athletic performance.

We 'ALTER THE STATE OF SCIENCE' because we are not specialists in white coats performing medical procedures rendering you passive. As an Alternative Health Care Practice, Altered States will work with you and empower you to be active in your therapeutic goals.
