“I was first drawn to Chinese Medicine because it reminded me to live a more fluid and dynamic life, one that harmonizes body, mind and spirit with nature and with an individual’s unique environment. I am passionate about sharing this wisdom in both intimate and community settings, working with individuals and groups to achieve greater understanding and cohesiveness within all forms of medicine and alternative health care. It is with this expanded perspective on health and life that I am able inspire and empower my patients to take control of their own health, healing and well-being.”
After receiving formal training in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine(Herbology) from Bastyr University, Melissa has furthered her understanding of East Asian medicine by studying Ayurveda, massage, Herbal medicine and traditional Nepalese sound healing techniques and Acutonics®. Melissa's passion resides in empowering clients to accept and embellish their own innate healing capability for health and spiritual growth.
