    Treatment Philosophy:

    I’m a huge believer in body maintenance. Regular treatment can prevent that injury from happening in the first place. When you feel your best you will perform your best!


    Melissa developed her passion for health and wellness when she competed as a professional MMA athlete, allowing her to fully understand the importance of human optimization. 

    This led her to pursue a career in the clinical field. She spent the first part of her career working as a physiotherapy/chiropractic assistant, being mentored by the right people and gaining that hands-on knowledge. During this time, she took certification courses such as Fascial Stretch Therapy and started to build a strong client base. 

    Wanting to offer her clients more and to continue her education she enrolled in Osteopathy school. She could not be happier with this decision to become a Manual Osteopath, it is very rewarding. Every day, you can make a difference in someone’s life. 

    Melissa is currently completing a concussion mentorship program. 

    Melissa’s compassionate and outgoing personality brings a welcoming experience for all of her patients.
