Melissa’s passion for Natural Therapies started from an early age as a client of Val Allen’s. This enthusiasm has led her to complete a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from Curtin University, along with Advanced Diplomas in Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine from the Australian Institute of Holistic Medicine.
Melissa has integrated a scientific view of health with the philosophies of Natural Medicine to create a balanced approach to disease states and wellness. She believes that without looking at the body as a whole we are unable to achieve optimal health on a physical and emotional level.
Melissa incorporates the use of various diagnostic methods such as iridology (iris camera), tongue signs, and nails signs in conjunction with Bioelectrical Bioimpedence Analysis and scientific laboratory testing to provide her clients with a multi-faceted approach to diagnosis and treatment. She uses nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, diet, and lifestyle advice to support her clients in achieving ideal health.
Aa a qualified personal trainer, she managed Lords Gym in Subiaco for 5 years and has achieved fantastic results with a variety of weight loss clients, rehabilitation, and sports specific training.
Since becoming a mum, Melissa has developed a real enthusiasm in women’s health – particularly in empowering women with the tools to assist in hormone re-balancing and reaching their health goals despite the everyday pressures and seemingly relentless pace.
Her specialisation lies within the area of weight loss and she believes that optimal results can be achieved when incorporating healthy lifestyle and exercise routines, with the correct diagnosis and treatment of any underlying imbalances, disease states, or deficiencies. Her ability to provide motivation, support, guidance, and continual assessment is a valuable tool in achieving health and weight loss goals. Melissa is the creator of the ‘eMErge Body Transformation’ program.
