True healing is a continuous process engaging the body, mind, heart & spirit
Deep within her soul, Melanie has always been drawn to the human body, spirituality and the healing arts. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science many years ago, her path eventually led her into the world of Holistic Healing. She is currently practicing Shiatsu Therapy, Massage Therapy, Cupping and Reiki as an associate at Adagio Holistic Therapies, LLC in South Minneapolis. She is concurrently finishing her education in Advanced Therapeutic Massage and Advanced Asian Bodywork at CenterPoint Massage & Shiatsu School. Melanie also integrates various forms of spiritual and energy healing into her work, as agreed upon with the client.
Through her own struggles with digestion & heart health and her long, continuous healing journey, Melanie discovered the transformational power of massage, bodywork and proper nutrition, as well as spiritual, emotional and energy healing modalities. During recent years, she has followed an inner calling to study Traditional Indigenous Healing with Kimberly Hart & Selma Sroka, and Shamanic healing methods with Jorge Villanueva Castillo. She also had the honor to learn from several other spiritual teachers, including Echo Bodine, Dawn Marian, and Jeanne Lecher, as well as the other amazing women that she worked with on the panel of the Sistrum channeling group, offering intuitive readings for the public around the Minneapolis area.
Previous to becoming a massage therapist, Melanie enjoyed working as a chemist, storm chaser, adult foster care provider and photographer. She is a woman of many interests.
“I am so grateful and excited to be part of the team of practitioners at Adagio Holistic Therapies, where together we create a space and place for balance, healing and growth.” - Melanie
