"I have had many healings with Melanie, and I would highly recommend her services. Until I met Melanie, I had never experienced the type of healings that she provides. Melanie is gifted, very dedicated and knowledgeable about the methods she uses on her clients. Her healings are wonderful both physically and spiritually. From the moment you meet Melanie, you feel relaxed and at ease. She instills a sense of trust and comfort as she speaks w ith you and also as she provides the healing. After a session with Melanie, I always leave with a sense of wholeness and peace. Don't hesitate to contact Melanie to set up an appointment. You will be so thankful that you did!" ~S.D.
"Her ability to communicate with animals is authentic. She helped me to learn a great deal about the needs of two horses that had different health issues and her ability to communicate their needs and concerns was invaluable. In addition, the meditation sessions she conducts are very restorative. Melanie is versatile and has much to offer her clients." ~J.I.
"During my session with Melanie I experienced an array of healing. First she journeyed for my grandmother who had passed away. Then second she performed a Reiki healing session that cured my aches and pains after the first time! I highly recommend her to anyone who is going through the death of a loved one, suffers from anxiety/depression, and if you just want to feel great!!! 5 stars thank you Mel!!!" ~J.M.
