With over 21 years of experience, Melanie has been practicing massage and bodywork after attending Health Choices Institute & Holistic Massage School in Belle Meade NJ. Her education includes not only thousands of hours of practice but also anatomy, physiology, pathology, and the use of multiple modalities, including but not limited to Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, shiatsu, acupressure, polarity, sports massage, and pre-natal. Since graduation, she has continued her education to include reflexology, Thai massage, AIS (active isolated stretching), introduction to Ayurvedic studies, attainment to Level I Usui Reiki, and many other bodywork techniques. In 2012, Melanie attended IIN, Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and became a certified health coach. She believes to acquire true health and well-being you need to address the whole self - mind, body & spirit. She is continually learning and enhancing her skills and knowledge to be able to bring more "to the table" for her clients.
Melanie takes an intuitive approach to all her sessions in creating a rhythmic blend of modalities with focus-specific bodywork to create a positive impact in assisting clients on their path to health and well-being. She will spend a few moments before each session to go over any areas of concern, desired outcomes and discuss the best approach to achieving your optimal results.
