If you are considering a massage, I highly recommend Camille! Her energy was calming and

her attention to detail was impressive. When my 90 minute prenatal massage was complete, I felt

like I was walking on clouds.”

The Story
the Name


My family and I moved to Alabama from North Carolina at the end of my treatment for Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Our new property provided a bit of wooded acreage and we had begun to carve paths through the forest. I came to our new home in the Deep South with only a scar where my port had been for a year and a half and a pronouncement of No Evidence of Disease!

I was cancer free and ready to embrace my new life!


It was early spring and the many dogwoods on our property were in bloom. My husband and I took a walk through our woods and discovered an old growth dogwood had fallen during a recent storm across one of our newly created paths. It was about 70% uprooted.


Despite this, it still bloomed. Its beautiful white blossoms were vibrant, in stark contrast to the cracked trunk almost completely uprooted. 

It was a message for me:


Though life may present obstacles across your path, 

Though you may get knocked down somewhere along your journey,

Though your image may be forever changed,

You CAN still blossom and THRIVE!


While there are many downed trees to clear on our property this one will be left in place. We have tended to this tree, cutting back limbs to restrict the nutrient requirement and bolstering up the exposed roots with happy dirt and fresh mulch. Hopefully she will continue to thrive as we mend her. 

I hope it will forever be a reminder to me that though I may be changed after 15 months of cancer treatment there are still other possibilities for my life to be filled with new growth and beauty!

When searching for a business name for my practice as a massage therapist, this tree offered her story. Massage is not meant to end at a fixed point but is a way to care for ourselves when we need a little mending from what life throws our way. 

And so Mending Tree Massage was born.

What does "Handcrafted" mean?

At MendingTree Massage,

I value the therapeutic benefit of massage therapy for 


Recovery from Injury

Healing after Medical Illness/Surgery

I also recognize the value in spa-like enhancements for achieving

deep relaxation 


Your handcrafted massage will always include a combination of therapeutic touch and spa-like comfort to provide you with enhanced wellbeing.

Handcrafted means:

I Listen

         to your requests and also to what your body

         reveals under my touch

You're Respected

         I recognize there is a level of vulnerability

         when a client receives a massage.

         I feel honored to be trusted and I

         demonstrate positive regard to each person. 

We Collaborate

         We will determine the treatment plan together.

         Your session will include a variety of massage

         modalities from my 18 years of experience.

“She knows her craft and is the utmost professional. During the consultation part of the service, she listens and learns your needs and tailors her massage to suit those individual needs. She is kindness itself and her demeanor puts her clients at ease so they can get the most out of each service.”


“Camille has a natural gift for what she does and she gives her full attention to you and your needs. I have had a fair amount of massages in the past and Camille has always been able to make me feel far more calm and relaxed than any other massage therapist ever has. I would highly recommend Camille to anyone for any type of massage and I look forward to my next treatment with Camille.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I wear during my massage?

You may undress to your comfort level. For all treatments you will be properly draped in a way that maintains your comfort and privacy. Only the area being massaged will be undraped at any given time.


Do I need to inform my massage therapist of any medical or physical ailments I may have?

It is important for your therapist to know about your health. Certain conditions may not be safe to receive massage. The Health Intake Questionnaire will help your therapist determine if you have any contraindications for massage.

Do you have to go to school to become a massage therapist?


Yes! Camille completed a 620 hour program and passed a National Exam to earn her Massage Therapy License. To maintain licensure, all LMTs must attend continuing education courses. Camille has more than 18 years of continuing education and maintains all licensing requirements.
