Merlita Knecht, CMT

Merlita Knecht brings many techniques and life experiences to Acorn Wellness Center as a Certified Massage Therapist, a continuing education massage teacher, and as someone who has worked with families in a social welfare setting. All of these skills are enhanced and influenced by her passions for gardening, yoga, and being a dedicated parent and grandparent.

As a massage therapist and bodyworker, Merlita loves to practice Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Thai Massage, Reflexology, Acupressure, Lomi Lomi, Lymphatic Drainage, Polarity, and Pregnancy Massage. A hallmark of her unique style is her ability to draw from a myriad of different bodywork techniques to either deeply relax you, or to very specifically address an area of pain and restriction. She is available for both deep pressure and light energy work.

She graduated from National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, CA and has been practicing bodywork since 1999. She is also a monthly continuing education instructor of massage therapists through National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, (NCBTMB).
