Melissa believes reflexology is a valuable tool for balancing and harmonizing the body, and especially useful for helping the body to prepare for pregnancy as well as adapt to the many changes a woman's body experiences both during pregnancy and post-birth. After receiving her reflexology certification in 2003 from the Open Center where she studied with Wendy Coad, she continued her training in Nonthaburi, Thailand with S. Ban and back in the states with Sandy Rosen and Susanne Enzer who is a maternity reflexologist based in the U.K. Melissa is also a dancer, choreographer and teacher of stretch & alignment and she integrates the knowledge she believes to be valuable and complementary from her 23+ years experience of working with bodies into her reflexology practice.
