Melanie is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Board Certified Polarity Practitioner, Certified Herbalist & Reiki Master/Teacher in the State of Massachusetts. She began her career in Massage Therapy & Holistic Health & Wellness 12 years ago when she graduated from CMS&T Inc. in Spencer MA.

Melanie's thirst for learning and her desire to offer her clients a variety of modalities has led her down many paths of healing and discovery, the most recent of which was Polarity Therapy. Melanie graduated from the 775 hour Polarity Therapy Career Program (BCPP) at Spa Tech Institute in Westborough, MA in July 2015, and is now a BCPP (Board Certified Polarity Practitioner) recognized nationwide by APTA (American Polarity Therapy Association).

She is also a Massage Educator in MA and a NCBTMB Approved Provider for Continuing Education Classes.

Melanie feels her career has come full circle and is truly passionate about what she does and lives to share her passion for Wellness with you. She believes that "health" or "living healthy" is an individual and integrative process and one must address the Whole Person, not just the physical, emotional or mental body. With this approach, her cliets feel their treatments are "complete" and often see results quickly if not immediately. Melanie also believes in the ability of the body to heal itself, and that to fully heal, one needs to commit to one's health and treatments accordingly. She firmly believes in Education, and that the more educated your clientele becomes about their own health and wellness, the healthier that person, and their loved ones, will be!

Certified Herbalist

I completed Rosemary Gladstar's Herbal Apprenticeship Program, a 10 month journey into the world of herbs, herbal therapies and natural living, in 2013. As adults, we can become so disconnected from what is truly important sometimes. When we reconnect with the plant world, we reconnect to ourselves, our bodies, and we truly appreciate all the beautiful gifts nature has to offer. It was very healing to me personally, and in turn I share this information with my clients the level of Herbalist. I am currently enrolled in an Advanced Apprenticeship at Thyme Herbal in Conway, MA.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapist

As a Massage Therapist, and Herbalist, we briefly touched on Aromatherapy, and my interest was reignited when a course was offered at Alternatives for Health Herbal Apothecary in Sturbridge MA. Linda Patterson taught the class and it was so amazing, I took the Level 2 course right away! Learning how essential oils are made, how to differentiate good oils from not so good ones and how to blend, scientifically and intuitively. I now offer customized blends to my clients for whatever issues they may be working on, physically emotionally, mentally and/or spiritually.

Bodywork

Traditional Usui Reiki - Master/Teacher

I received my Master/Teacher Attunements in May 2014 with Donna Jacobsen, RMT, and it changed my life. Reiki has led me down so many wonderful paths, and I continue to use it nearly everyday for self-healing and meditation. My clients enjoy Reiki as a stand alone treatment, or integrated into their massage sessions. It is beautiful and powerful modality.
