At Wellest Integrative Health, we strive for health through mind, body, and spirit.
Melissa earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy (PT) from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts. She will be sitting for her board exams in the Fall of 2014, after which we will be welcoming her as a permanent member of our Body Connect family! Her first 15-week clinical affiliation was at Elements Fitness and Wellness Center in Washington, D.C., where she treated clients using GYROTONIC® exercise.
Melissa has just finished her second full-time acute care clinical at Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover, New Hampshire. She is a certified GYROTONIC® instructor and has served as an instructor for the past year. Melissa has a strong interest in holistic health, particularly in Myofascial Release, pelvic floor therapy, and breast cancer rehabilitation. She has already begun taking introductory continuing education seminars in these areas (she took MFR 1 in Summer of 2013, and is scheduled to complete Pelvic Floor 1 course with Herman & Wallace Institute in June 2014).
Melissa enjoys yoga, GYROTONIC® exercise, traveling, cooking, spinning, the ocean, and music. Go Red Sox!
