Herbs and Nutrition:
Melissa offers one on one, or family, consultations for herbal and nutritional support for your health needs. She formulates herbs and gives dietary suggestions to suit your specific needs. Each Person is an individual therefore need to be treated as such.
Melissa has studied many forms of body work and over time has honed her skills and created what she calls, “Body Listening.” She has studied, massage, shiatsu (acupressure), reiki, moxa, cupping, kinesiology, tapping, and cranial sacral therapy. With her studies and practice she has found that the body will tell where the problem is if one will only listen. Melissa has an intuition that makes what she does seem almost magical. Melissa believes that her years of meditation and martial arts has allowed her Qi to reach a level that aids her technique. She understands that everyone and everything is made up of energy and with Body Listening she taps into the persons own energy and listens. Melissa has learned that most, if not all, ailments come from stagnation in one form or another. And when the body, mind or spirit has stagnation ailments occur. So, through Body Listening, Melissa uses her Qi to unblock stagnation. She may work on your feet when you think your neck needs worked on. Or she may use cupping to rid your body or physical or emotional toxins. It truly depends on what your body tells her. Her skill is encouraging and effective.
Many people wondering around feeling like a piece of them is missing after a traumatic incident, whether it be a bad accident, major surgery as a child, history of abuse, etc. When a person experiences a traumatic incident sometimes a piece of them is left behind and they become fragmented. Melissa uses a very gentle technique to take you back to that 1 or those many incidents that left you fragmented. Soul retrieval is offered in series of 3 sessions. A session can take 1-3 hours and it is important to give the psyche time to integrate. Meliissa’s ability to aid in a persons journey to retrieve lost pieces of their soul stems from the journey back to herself, and her life long quest to understand her own core.
As human beings we have the tendency to hang onto stuff and at times if can affect the spirit in a way that creates fear, anxiety, emotional pain and more. Through her gentle nature and quiet spirit Melissa allow you a safe space to process and find new pathways back to spiritual well being.
Tai Qi and Qi Gong:
Melissa has spent over 30 years studying and practicing various forms of martial arts. It all started when her son was 10 and they took karate together. It has been a family event since. Melissa has had the opportunity to study with some of the best martial artists in the U.S. and China. Her mentor, teacher and beloved friend, Narin Lattingham told her about 10 years ago to start teaching. Melissa refused since she did not think she was good enough but in the end Narin won the argument. Narin was not only Melissa’s teacher but also her sons teacher and friend. He was and will always be held in high esteem by all who knew him. When Melissa talks about Narin, she gets misty eyed and says, “he was a ghost, a true ninja who changed the course of my life.
Melissa's primary motivation comes from her children and grandchildren. They have been her strongest advocates and her best teachers.
