Mel developed a passion for Complementary Medicine over 20 years ago. After completing a Human Science degree she went on to study Homoeopathy which she thoroughly enjoys practicing to this day. Early on she realised that her calling in life is to help herself and others to be healthy, happy and free. Later she discovered yoga in India and it helped tremendously with her own health issues. This experience sparked a desire to teach and she completed the 200 hour training in 2011.
Homoeopathy is a talking therapy which explores the mental/ emotional side of illness and how this manifests physically whereas yoga is about movement and breath bringing the dimension of touch to the therapeutic interaction, bringing about change on a mental/emotional level. The two complement each other beautifully, giving patients the opportunity to transcend illness and transform into an improved state of wellbeing and health. Mel combines the two therapies, as well as the practice of Reiki and awareness of nutrition in a creative approach to healing.
Over the years there has been extensive travel, learning about different cultures and treating people with various health issues. Mel embraces language and culture differences and enjoys people. Celebrating the similarities between us and highly valuing pure communication fuels her desire to help. She considers her life journey one of fun, healing and devotion.
