Her knowledge and studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine is one that treats the whole body and not just symptoms.

Melissa has always had a passion to help others improve their quality of life. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Palm Beach Atlantic University in 2003. During that time she studied under a professor whom had been cured from an illness through diet, herbs, and lifestyle changes. This fueled her desire to further her education in nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, and alternative medicine. Instead of focusing exclusively on counseling, she decided to embrace a holistic approach to helping people both physically and emotionally.
