An Intuitive Medicine session digs deep into your energy pathways, emotional, mental and spiritual blockages, & physical manifestations of dis-ease. Sessions include an aura scan, a chakra scan, and a full body scan – a complete picture of your current physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

For an Intuitive Medicine session, a safe and sacred space is created by Melanie and her team in spirit. In this space of connection and healing, Melanie will see beyond her client’s physical human state, to observe the flow of energy through their chakras and body systems.

With guidance from her spirit team, Melanie identifies the emotional, spiritual and physical origins of the symptoms of pain and ‘dis-ease’ experienced by her clients. By bringing awareness to the ‘hidden’ causes of physical symptoms, Melanie is able to provide her clients with clear steps for improving their well-being and health, so that they can get back on track to living the dream life that they want.
